Today's Oscar Trivia #26

On Second Thought Sometimes remakes of classic films turn out fine, as in this redoing of a 1931 crime drama, first remade under the title Satan Met A Lady in 1936. Name the definitive, Oscar-nominated 1941 version starring Humphrey Bogart.

The Big Five Only three times in the history of the Academy Awards has a film won in each of the five major categories—Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Screenplay. Name the 1934 comedy with Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable that was the first to accomplish this.

The interesting thing about those three films is that while they won the big 5, none of the three won any others (and IHON didn't even get any other nominations).

On the other hand, outside of IHON, the only Best Picture Sweeps (not counting Grand Hotel, with its 1 win/nom) - Gigi, Last Emperor, Return of the King - all failed to earn any acting Oscars.
