Final clue in contest revealed

PORT TOWNSEND — The fourth and final clue in the Port Townsend Film Festival’s “Guess-the-Guest” contest was revealed Wednesday as the countdown continues for the seventh annual weekend movie marathon Sept. 15-17.

Hidden within four clues offered over a four-week period is the identity of festival’s featured guest.

Previous guests have included such film stars from the 1950s and 1960s as Tony Curtis, Eva Marie Saint, Patricia Neal, Shirley Knight, Peter Fonda, Jane Powell, Dickie Moore, Debra Winger and Arliss Howard.

The fourth 2006 clue reads:

Our guest appeared in two films in Entertainment Weekly’s list of 25 “most controversial” films.

The first three clues were:

* Howard Schultz has nothing on our guest

* Another kind of tailor.

* . . . not when.

The identity of the guest will be revealed on Wednesday, Aug. 2.

The winning contestant will be selected at random from among those who correctly identify the name of the guest by Monday, July 31.

The winner will be introduced and have his or her photograph taken with the guest at a special reception during the festival.

“We try to make the early clues tough,” said Peter Simpson, the festival’s executive director who also holds the responsibilities of programming.

“In previous years, our clues have been a bit too easy and folks were able to easily find the identity of the guest through Google, the Internet search engine.

“But now, we dig deeper into our guests’ backgrounds to find information not readily available.”

“This final clue is, however, ripe for Google-ing,” Simpson added.

The film festival’s featured guest will be interviewed by Robert Osborne, Turner Classic Movies host, on stage Saturday night, Sept. 16, along with a screening of one of his (or her) films.

She (or he) will make other appearances during the festival at events yet to be announced.
