This French film (4 words, 2, 4, 4, 4) is interesting for a couple of reasons:

1. It features a well-known discussion first advanced by - a - - - - (6 letters) as to why one should believe in God.

2. It also features a cameo performance by the violinist - - - a - (5 letters), who was the brother-in-law of this famous pianist (6 letters).

By the way, I'm taking off now, so whoever gets the clue (it will be obvious to you if you do) can just go ahead and come up with the next clue. No need to wait for me to confirm.

Have fun.

Clarification to 1: Actually I don't know if the discussion/argument was first advanced by this person, but the discussion/argument that is usually referred to bears the person's name.

Hint: In a recent thread on this forum on a movie set a city that's loved by many Fodorites, a poster wrote that she owned several movies directed by the director who directed this movie in question.

2 words: 1st word - 10 letters, 2nd word - 6 letters
The 6th letter of the 1st word is a "K" from Kogan.

Since we seem to be doing multiple clues/answers, here is mine:

This person (3 words=4 letters, 5 letters, 9 letters...5th letter of 3rd word is the "O" from Koninklijk) is the sister of a famous actress (2 words=6 letters, 5 letters) and was married to the son (2 words=6 letters, 9 letters...3rd letter of the 2nd word is the "S" from Paleis) of a WW2 European leader.

Hi 111op:
Right on all 3! Google is great isn't it?! Continuing in the tradition of Benito Mussolini, Romano & Anna Maria actually have a summer home in Levanto (near the CT) that I saw when I was there....

You're up next.

Oh, you didn't think that I knew that right off? I'm disappointed.

Of course it's Google. I'm surprised that I was actually able to Google this....

I can't think something too complicated at the moment, so let me ask this (I just read about it today on this forum):

Setting of a Hollywood sci-fi blockbuster in Italy:

2 words:

- i - - - (5 letters)
- a - - - - - - l - - (11 letters)

According to a frequent poster to this forum, this is a must-see attraction in that part of Italy.

Hint: The poster's moniker is quite short. Also supposedly the person was mentioned in some publication not long ago (based on what I read in this forum) though I haven't seen the article.

Well, it's on rex's must-see list. Do a search and you'll see. Oddly, though, I've not seen it mentioned anywhere else, but I haven't read many guide books on the Italian Lakes.

I think that I'm spending way too much time on this forum.

I kept thinking that you were referring to bob_brown & his name mentioned on NYT.

Next clue:
This dancer, though American, spent the latter part of her life in Paris. She was the subject in artworks by Rodin & Toulouse-Lautrec.
First name - - i - (4)
Last name 6 letters
