Featured Question with Forrest Fenn: Thrill of a Movie

thrill of the chase forrest fennForrest, if a movie was made about the Thrill Of The Chase, which actor would you like to see portray you? Let’s assume Pitt is unavailable. Robert Redford perhaps? ~pacman


You are so funny pacman, with that movie stuff talk. I am the last remaining member of my family so who would watch such a film? My wife would probably suggest that Justin Bieber play my character, but I would think Wallace Berry would be more appropriate. f

    Thank-you, Jenny and Forrest. I need to review movie history, when reading some of those names.

    I was just looking at something with Jan Murray:

      I see aberrations have taken up residence here, if I can’t crack it by the weekend then I will have to work on it some more next week.

    • astree says:

      Abeerations too. πŸ™‚ I found I’m the remaining member in my family followed by my wife interesting.

      What did you find?

      • JL says:

        psychotic; is what you would see if I mentioned them all.

        • astree says:

          Likely not. Noticing aberrations can be a key tool in gaining useful insight. In science, it is the aberrations that challenge existing theories, and keep the field advancing. Puzzle-makers also aberrations as part of their building equipmeant.

        One of the things I will start with and I am not much for sharing because a person can be called crazy only so many times before it starts to detract a person from their self-esteem, I see a: “Thrill of a Movie”
        Looks a lot like Thrill of the Chase in my mind.

    • JL says:

      I am always humbled by the creativity of blog names, I am simply known as jl not much creativity there.
      After pondering the weekly words I find it;

      kist achter.

    Thank you for this week’s Featured Question, pacman, Jenny and Mr. Fenn. This one made me giggle. I would watch the movie, Mr. Fenn. Time to dissect this one. Scalpel. πŸ™‚

  3. Iron Will says:

    I’m lost on this one Forrest.

    Surely your wife wouldn’t think of Justin Bieber and isn’t it Wallace Beery?

    It makes me think there is something to be gleaned from that…. maybe an angram of each, meaning your wife would say “justinbieber” about the treasure’s location, but you’d say “wallaceberry” would be more appropriate. Wallace Berry the theorist/musician songwriter, died in Vancouver ( not sure if you knew that, or if that fact pertained to something I told you about a few weeks ago).
    But for thoroughness, I looked up Wallace Beery (the actor) who did MANY films, two of which were … Wyoming and Treasure Island. Not sure if that was your hidden meaning.

    Like JL said…aberrations.

  4. Friend says:

    Anyone else tired of reading about Justin B?
    Maybe I have to first clear my head and continue later…… πŸ˜‰

  5. WiseOne says:

    Thrill of a Movie. Move e. (Take the “e” in movie, move it down into Berry) Tah dah… Beery! πŸ™‚
    Are you Thrilled?

  6. WiseOne says:

    Now I don’t want anyone saying that won’t work because It’s a silent movie… πŸ˜›

  7. pdenver says:

    Hello Everyone. Reading everyone’s comments about “movie”…”move e.” Instead of “move e,” what do you think about “skip e” or “Skippy”? Where does that take us?

    • Magic 8 says:

      Well pdenver, it takes us to Uptown Funk. Smoother than a fresh jar of skippy!
      which is too hot. hot dam. which is WWWH. Woot!!!! Where is skippy dam in the rockies?

  8. JL says:

    ” skip e” or “Skippy” takes me to lunch. Skippy peanut but and raspberry sammich.

  9. Mark J says:

    It only makes sense that Forrest would choose a pirate.

  10. Magic 8 says:

    Robert Redford? He was in the Sneakers movie “Too many secrets.” Way too loose lipped for a Fenn role πŸ˜‰

  11. Strawshadow says:

    Thanks Jenny, Forrest and little Pacman, A person plays many parts in they’re lives the spectrum being vast. This is the first I recall thinking of Mrs. Fenn being honest and silly at the same time. Thinking of Forrest as the Beibs was a stretch, even for me. It’s curious to me how someone thinks how someone else might think. What a suggestion Mr. Fenn about Mrs. Fenn. I think it would be an easier task to figure out who Forrest thinks should star as Mrs. Fenn. And Wiseone you are tickling my brain with twisters, if I didn’t know better I might think you were playing with vowels:)

  12. Mindy says:

    The difference between Justin Beiber and Wallace Beery (Jenny, can you confirm that a Forrest meant Beery and not Berry?) is that Beery was older than Justin, and beery starred in movies rather than music. Otherwise, in many ways, they seem to be a lot alike. πŸ™‚

  13. twingem says:

    Beery was a multifaceted man. Some facets were brighter than others. He certainly had flaws, as do all living things.

    Did you know Beery was in silent films back in the day? They just don’t make them like the used to…films that is. Charlie Chaplin still captures my imagination.


  15. Ramona says:

    Justin Bieber is not an actor. He may have appeared in some roles but acting is not his career, singing is. Why is everyone assuming that Forrest meant Wallace Beery? Could he have really meant the author Wallace T. Berry, who is credited with 3 books all about music? Structural Functions in Music, Form in Music, & Musical Structure and Performance. It would seem to me, by the fact that he mentions Justin Bieber first, that we may be talking about structure and music here.

  16. locolobo says:

    hmmm, the Biebs, Berry…..kinda makes you wanna go back and re view his Kutcher post?

  17. h20 says:

    ok. I have not chimed in much but I will give you a hint on this.

    new and old. now I am done for sometime.

  18. pacman says:

    Imagine being married to Gloria Swanson.

  19. SL says:

    He agrees.


  20. SL says:

    Meaning, JK had no desire to go there!

  21. Although he shares much in common with Beery real life, especially the disdain for school, would Forrest also see himself as one of Berry’s roles – Long John Silver or Pancho Villa?

    Of course, for us TTOTC’ers he’d be The Champ!

    ~ Wisconsin Mike

  22. SL says:


    I believe this is the “Wallace Berry” ‘role’ that Forrest Fenn might actually prefer to identify with the …..most.


  23. Hi Forrest— Would you want this movie to play at Sundance? πŸ˜‰


  24. JohnR says:

    Maybe the other living members of your family would watch it, or then again maybe not if it’s a musical.

  25. Jonsey1 says:

    I read this today on a complete tangent on amother subject, then felt the need connect it on the cusp and post it here. Probably not what he meant, but made me smile all the same.

    “A noteworthy episode in Beery’s life is chronicled in the fifth episode of Ken Burns’ documentary The National Parks: America’s Best Idea: In 1943, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed an executive order creating Jackson Hole National Monument to protect the land adjoining the Grand Tetons in Wyoming. Local ranchers, outraged at the loss of grazing lands, compared FDR’s action to Hitler’s taking of Austria. Led by an aging Beery, they protested by herding 500 cattle across the monument lands without a permit.[20]”

    • Strawshadow says:

      Damage done, the place will clearly never be the same. Thankfully that was the same year Winston Churchill arrived in Casablanca. If it wasn’t for the hula painted frog, 3 years prior, there would be no need for a head to stick out of the sand.
