La beauté du monde: Classic Film Images Quiz, August 2015 Edition, Vol. 36-24-36


… OR ARE YOU NOT HAPPY TO SEE ME?:  In consideration of the ambiguous nature of the female mind (“Just what goes on up there anyway?” pondered a distracted Socrates whose fascination with the emerging coterie of Nouvelle Vague actresses incautiously allowed a normally ill-advised dose of hemlock to medicate a middle ear infection.), it occurs to us that the fair maiden (above) is either expressing a shock to the system or stifling a yawn at the prospect of  yet another Chandler Swain Reviews brain buster like the following, entitled:

La beauté du monde: Film Images Quiz, August 2015 Edition, Vol. 36-24-36

     Welcome all purveyors of cinematic curiosity to yet another edition of America’s most pointless monthly game, and a source of possible future litigation by the National Organization of Women, the Miskatonic Light Opera Company and FEMA, the Monthly Classic Film Images Quiz, once000000august31 again brought to you by the independently obese who have happily kept  SKITTLEas America’s favorite breakfast candy. In this edition, we celebrate those wondrous talented and architecturally ethereal Euro-actresses who have enriched the Silver Screen (Actually is it really silver? It rather looks a dingy white with random modern expressionistic drip painting accents from accumulated assaults of cola, orangeade and smuggled Red Eye Slurpees.) with style, beauty, grace, wit and intelligence. (And a good hairdo don’t hurt either.) The following twenty stills feature lovely performers from across the Atlantic who stir the imagination in or out of subtitles. Your task in this month’s quiz is twofold: first to identify each actress (this, as the old song goes, is the simple part)and then to identify the film from which the image is derived (the more challenging of endeavors). As usual, the first to successfully accomplish both ends of the challenge will receive that rarest of rare gems: the CSR Culture Shock Award, worth its weight in Euros and at least double the annual GNP of Greece! Good luck.

I've been a puppet, a pirate, a pauper, a poet, a pawn and a king, not necessarily in that order. My first major movie memory was being at the drive-in at about 1 1/2 yrs. old seeing "Sayonara" so I suppose an interest in film was inevitable. (For those scoring at home- good for you- I wasn't driving that evening, so no need to alert authorities.)Writer, critic and confessed spoiler of women, as I have a tendency to forget to put them back in the refrigerator. My apologies.

    Hello ChandlerSwain and an early good morning to you…long time no see! So much has happened to me since the last time I was here, I’ve moved to a different state of residence for one, but nevertheless I deeply enjoy viewing and answering your insightful yet awe-inspiring trivia quizzes. I’m also doing my best to use my WordPress blog site more often since the CFU has changed dramatically in more ways than one; I’ve changed the name on my WordPress page plus I no longer make posts on the TCM sister website… so even though I may be a bit rough around the edges in regards to my responses for your posts, meaning I may be wrong or right when I give my answers, in the end I do love a good challenge plus what could go wrong? So without further adieu, here are my answers:
    1) Catharine Deneuve in Belle de Jour (1967)
    2) Romy Schneider in Boccaccio ’70 (1962)
    3) Delphine Seying in Daughters of Darkness (1971)
    4) Monica Vetti in Red Desert (1964)
    5) Claudia Cardinale in 8 ½ (1963)
    6) Corinne Cléry in Moonraker (1979)

    8) Hanna Schygulla in Lili Marleen (1981)
    9) Gina Lollobrigida in The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1956)
    10) Sophia Loren in Marriage Italian Style (1970)
    11) Jeanne Moreau in Elevator to the Gallows (1958)
    12) Anouk Aimée in Model Shop (1969)
    13) Stefania Sandrelli in The Conformist (1970)
    14) Beatrice Dalle in Betty Blue (1986)?
    15) ?????? (I can’t quite place the actress)
    16) Anna Karina in Pierrot le Fou (1965)
    17) Simone Simon in La bête humaine (1938)
    18) Stéphane Audran in The Butcher (1970)
    19) Silvana Mangano in Teorema (1968)
    20) Irene Papas in Electra (1962)
