More shameless piggybacking on Brit

Here's my own Google-proof quiz. Unlike Brit's, mine is cheat-proof as well. Enjoy!

1. Who wouldn't open the door for D?

2. Which 2 followed 1 after 33?

3. What GW made GW that AG got AA for IT.

Clues:

1. This is from a movie directed by the guy who's last movie starred a real life husband and wife.

2. 33 stands for days.

3. The second GW isn't a person. And the idea that GW made GW isn't accepted by all people.

More Clues:

1. This is from a movie directed by the guy who's last movie before he died starred a real life husband and wife.

2. Joe Shropshire guessed correctly that it was Pope JohnPaul II who succeeded JohnPaul I who only reigned for 33 days before his untimely death.

3. GW has another initial that I haven't given.

Prize? There is no prize.. beyond the self satisfaction of winning. Which, sadly, I cannot bestow upon you. Nice try, though!

Clue for #2: 33 represents days.

I guess one possible answer to #2 would be days. That is: 33 days is 1 month [followed by] 2 days.

I'm hoping this is wrong, because the real right answer should have something to do with Gregory XIII or the Council of Trent. But it doesn't seem like there were any 33-day months involved in the switchover.

Joe,
You are wrong, but your answer came closer than you think.

Hmmm. Okay, how about February 2. February 2 followed February 1, after 33 days (in the new year.) Still hoping for something a bit more medieval.

Joe,
1 and 2 are people.

Oh, fudge. John Paul I and II. (Did JP I only last 33 days? So he did.)
