“I’M READY FOR MY CLOSE-UP, MISTER DEMILLE.”: DECEMBER 2013 CLASSIC FILM IMAGES QUIZ , VOL. 1941 (100% SELFIE-FREE)
This month’s festive photo quiz has the good fortune of containing socially redeeming content (we actually have to do this every now and then to excuse the usual crap we serve up) that may actually help those who have to put up a good front when what they receive in good faith under the Xmas tree disappoints (“But gee Dad, I wanted a Camaro, not a Bonneville!”- OK, probably dated ourselves here, but you get the gist.), so let the following be an instructional guide to that good old fashioned expression we call “the poker face” (or, in some of the examples: the poker face as expressed by the inmates of the Asylum at Charenton under the direction of the Marquis de Swain), which may carry you through many bouts of selfishness and blind consumerism throughout this holiday season. This little hunk of joy has the same rules: identify all the titles of the films in the following stills, or die. (We just threw that last in there to see if you were paying attention.) The first to correctly identify all will receive the ever-popular CSR CULTURE SHOCK AWARD- won only three times, the last time by two-timer (with all of the connotations that may imply…ho ho ho) and long time supporter Aldora. Congrats babe. Now off with all of you, and don’t get on the bad side of mall Santa…I have it on good authority he’s packing heat.

Hi Chandler & Happy Holidays to you; I hope that you’re having as much fun viewing the classics on TV as much as I am especially considering that more than likely I’ll be spending the holiday season with my family. Anywho, thank you for your countless insightful enriching monthly quizzes that you’ve selflessly posted because I enjoy being a member here (who knows I might work on a Leslie Howard quiz but that might take some time hehe) and here are my answers for the Dec edition: 1) Kuroneko (1968)?, 2) Bolero (1984), 3) Demon Seed (1977), 4) Battle Royale (2000), 5) Looks like Frankenstein (1931), 6) Torment (1944), 7) I Am Cuba (1964), 8) My hunch is leaning more towards La Belle et la Bête (1946), 9) The Desert of the Tartars (1976), 10) Die Marquise von Sade (1976), 11) Tales from the Crypt (1972) & finally 12) I’ll have to admit that I’m at a loss for words because I can’t seem to recall the name of the film so I only have 11 total answers for this month’s quiz but in the end I had fun taking on a challenge. I will say this much: I know I’m taking a longshot with this but even though I don’t know the name of the film, my guess in regards to whose eyes they belong to is actor Laurence Harvey (yeah it WAS a longshot indeed but worth the risk)…thanks again Chandler!!
