A movie trivia question too hard for you

Was watching a bit of “The Natural.”

Have lost count of the number of times I have spent a few minutes with part of that 1984 film.

I enjoy it, obviously. It features my favorite Wilford Brimley performance — yes, even incuding “China Syndrome.” But I always have a question.

What are the chances the injuries right fielder Bump Bailey sustained when running through that flimsy outfield fence would have been fatal?

In what film does the character played by Bill Murray refer to a guy as “Lee Harvey”?

Sounds local, but it’s not

This is a bit obscure. But those with an encyclopedic recall of everything in The Slice Blog over the last couple of years will have a leg up.

Northwest flavored movie trivia question

An actress who appeared in both “Double Indemnity” and “Going My Way” lived for a time in both Oregon and Washington.

Name her.
