Well, that bugger Ken123 has left us hanging here. Until he shows up to post his clue, I'll go ahead and post one.

Here's an 'In Other Words' type question.

What's the movie?

Scapegoated naval officer joins forces with a schoolteacher, a best selling author, and a legendary outlaw to thwart a real life private investigators attempt to monopolize a local resource with a hostile ousting of a rival interest.

Anyhow you've blown your chances of the winning glamorous prizes I was going to offer the individual posting the correct solution.

Hey, mel, I just found this thread and this game. I like this game. If you don't mind, I'd like to present a movie line for all to guess.

I don't know what the film is but it sounds intersting just from the quote.
