Limbering up

Give year of 'Citizen Kane'.

` `
```SELECT yr
FROM movie
WHERE title='Citizen Kane'```

List all of the Star Trek movies, include the id, title and yr (all of these movies include the words Star Trek in the title). Order results by year.

` `
```SELECT id,title, yr FROM movie

Looking at the id field.

What are the titles of the films with id 11768, 11955, 21191

` `

Get to the point

Obtain the cast list for 'Casablanca'. Use the id value that you obtained in the previous question.

AND actorid=actor.id```

List the films where 'Harrison Ford' has appeared - but not in the star role. [Note: the ord field of casting gives the position of the actor. If ord=1 then this actor is in the starring role]

WHERE name='Harrison Ford'
AND movieid=movie.id
AND actorid=actor.id
AND ord<>1```

List the films together with the leading star for all 1962 films.

JOIN actor   ON actorid=actor.id
WHERE name='John Travolta'
GROUP BY yr
HAVING COUNT(title)=(SELECT MAX(c) FROM
(SELECT yr,COUNT(title) AS c FROM
movie JOIN casting ON movie.id=movieid
JOIN actor   ON actorid=actor.id
WHERE name='John Travolta'
GROUP BY yr) AS t
)```
```SELECT yr,COUNT(title) FROM

HAVING COUNT(title)=(SELECT MAX(c) FROM
