SS Super Sunday #3 : 'Hits and Misses'

Identify A-Z, scoring 3 points each. Get all correct to win an added bounty of 20 points.


The equivalent of the 'oros rey' from a Spanish Baraja deck in the conventional Anglo-French deck of cards is said to be dedicated to A, a pivotal character in history. A is credited with his own encryption technique, which when applied to B in a base 2 gives 'JKVNGT'. B was seen to meet an alternative fate in the 2009 movie C, named after a 1978 macaroni combat film, and directed by D. D helped a previously lesser known actor E win a couple each of Oscars, BAFTA as well as Golden Globe awards through back-to-back iconic roles in C and F. The same role in C had originally been offered to G, which perhaps would have rendered a particular batch of internet memes non-existent.



Identify the 4 images above as H, I, J and K respectively (clockwise from top left). Connect the 4 laterally to B. The connect will give you L.

The most successful big-screen depiction of A occured way back in 1953, which starred M, one of the most influential actors of all time, in the critical non-title role of N. M went on to play O, one of the greatest movie characters of all time in a subsequent movie P. O was largely based on real-life Q, and was later portrayed by R in the forthcoming movies of the series. M's influence on modern cinema is clearly visible in the fact that his apparent retirement in 1980 led to a song being composed by S. O inspired a subsequent character T, debuting in a comic series by famous artist and writer U, and subsequently in the movie V.

A was well known for his escapades outside marriage, most notably with W, the last major active pharaoh of Egypt. He also had a lesser known fling with a member of a prominent house, whose son X, popularly believed to be A's offspring, later plotted in A's own death. X along with Y waged a short-lived war for supremacy after A's demise against N and Z, leading to subsequent defeat.
