It’s time to pull out the Coppertone, ship those vile, unwanted kids off to summer camp where they’ll learn life lessons in hiking through poison ivy and the competitive thrill of dodgeball generated compound fractures, and the adherence to stubbornly retained Grammar School calendars by people who haven’t seen the inside of a school since the Truman administration. Yes, it’s Summer, that special time when dedicated parents drop their kids off at malls and movie theaters to torment others while they pamper their NPR fueled cluelessness with happy thoughts of empathizing with the impoverished people of the Third World by the possibility of sending their own demon spawn to the latest fashionable Third World hell hole during the next seasonal vacation break from school (aka, extended day care). In the spirit of globe trotting travel and leisure, we present this month’s edition of America’s favorite visual laxative The Monthly Classic Film Images Quiz, now celebrating its fifty seventh consecutive year by the makers of SKITTLES, the All-American breakfast alternative to World Cup soccer. In this edition, we dive head first into the empty pool (ouch) of the world of filmed vacations, a world free from that hillbilly clown car full of moonshine children and goats who always seem to be bouncing off the adjacent wall to your room at Motel 6. Your quest, as always, is to identify the twelve films from which the following still are taken. As always- to keep the eyes on the Prize -at stake is the coveted CSR Culture Shock Award, designation as a third alternative for Miss Delaware and free passes to the next Michael Bay film which is designated Best Picture of the Year by the National Society of Film Critics. Good luck.
