I only got a couple more than those two...they are big films too... Rick Blaine - Humphrey Bogart - Casablanca Raymond Baddit - Dustin Hoffman - Rain Man George Bailey - James Stewart - It's a wonderful life Josh Baskin - Tom Hanks - Big Sally Bowles you got... Rhett Butler you got... Johnny Castle - Patrick Swayze - Dirty Dancing Bill Connors - Bill Murray - Groundhog Day Daphne/Jerry - Tony Curtis - Some like it hot Alex Forrest - Glenn Close - Fatal Attraction..
You might be proud of the fact you didn't know some of those!
Yes, I probably am: but not the Casablanca and Some Like it Hot though - I should have known those. I rarely remember or even pick up characters' names though: I usually just think "Him, the main one; her, the girl main one, him with the moustache, her with the -, er, her with the hair", etc. I'm pretty bad at recognising faces as well. It's a wonder I can follow any film sometimes.
How about Holly Martins? (And I had to check I'd got that right as well.)
I used to know someone who knew the original Sally Bowles - Jean Ross, her name was. He had known her through the Communist Party in I suppose the 40s. She did not like the Sally Bowles character, who (according to Wiki) was a lot more like Isherwood's gay male friends than her. She was not a great singer.
