From the Crazy Mixed-Up Files of Chandler Swain: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, September 2015 Edition, Vol. 411
MEMO FROM THE LET’S GET SOMETHING OFF OF OUR CHEST DEPT: There comes a time in the life of every website when a digital version of a garage sale becomes a matter of practical necessity rather than the result of a well ordered intentional maintenance born of organized thinking and purposeful deliberation. In other words, it’s time to declare the current condition of Chandler Swain Reviews something of (what is the technical term used by NASA?…. oh, yes) a hot mess. To be honest, there has been a great deal of negligent management on the part of the administrators of this site, the most glaring misconduct emerging from the dearth of new material published in a timely fashion (if at all), the scathingly out-of-date obituary listings and, of course, the several years long drought regarding the lack of response to the patiently generous correspondence which has passed by this desk. With rectifying this lowly state of discipline a top priority (well, unless there’s a surprise weekend sale of practical joke novelty items at Spanky & T-Bone’s House of 10,000 Humiliations), it seems prudent that the first order of business should be to clean house, which brings us to this month’s edition of America’s most beloved regularly scheduled cause of hypertension and unexplained vertigo, the CLASSIC FILM IMAGES PHOTO QUIZ, brought to you- as always -by those swell Teamsters who semi-safely deliver SKITTLES, America’s favorite breakfast candy, to local merchants across the globe. SKITTLES, working every day for a tuberculosis-free America. In this month’s brainteaser there is no thematic link between the images, simply a random assortment of things that have been cluttering up the work area and getting underfoot. Your assignment, as always, is to correctly identify all 25 of the following images to the correct film title from which they originated. (Yes, that’s right. I said 25 images this month, which either indicates that our offices are extraordinarily unkept or that this month’s quiz is in the form of the world’s most ill-timed Advent Calendar.) The first to arrive at the correct solution to the puzzle will receive the coveted CSR CULTURE SHOCK AWARD, already rumored to be cited in several classified NATO documents as the international currency of choice in a post-apocalyptic nomadic society. Good luck.
