Thumbs up Three Coins in the Fountain

Quick and Easy

"Three coins in the fountain, each one seeking happy news. Thrown by three wishful thinkers, which one will the fountain choose?" Not quite the words of the song, but three young trade-apprenticed tourists on a trip to Rome decide to stop at the famous Trevi Fountain, throw in a coin and make a wish. Each had only one coin of a different denomination but which had the same value in relation to the granting of a wish. By coincidence each wished to play a star role in the up-coming movie "The Three Buddies" and each had their wish granted.

The tourists were Brian, Charlie, and Paul.

The trades were Bricklayer, Carpenter, and Plumber.

The coins were 10c, 20c, and 50c.

The star roles were Johnny Ladd, Justa Kidd, and Lucky Starr.

The tourists, trades, coins, and star roles do not necessarily relate to each other in the order listed.

From this information and the following clues, for each tourist, can you determine his trade, the value of his coin and the part he wished to play in the movie?

1) No tourist has an occupation starting with the same letter as his name.
2) Lucky Starr was the wish of the tourist who had a 20c coin and threw last.
3) The coin thrown first was 50c which belonged to the bricklayer, not Charlie.
4) Johnny Ladd was the plumber's wish.
