It’s My Party: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, July 2016 Edition, Vol. 54
In these days of American celebration, let us not forget those attributes of the human spirit which have helped cement our nation as the place of dreams, the cradle of free and independent action, and, of course, the birthplace of the celebration of almost anything at the drop of a hat or the merest suggestion of a group gathering in which no one has cab fare. This spirit is, of course, of the eighty proof variety, which if imbibed in sufficient quantity, is potent enough to render common sense null and void. (For an illustrative reference point, see the James Comey announcement of the Clinton Investigative findings.) With this time honored tradition of voluntary surrender to celebratory grossly negligent behavior (correction: extremely careless) in mind, we welcome you to yet another episode of America’s favorite monthly mental aphrodisiac, the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you by those wonderful folks who manufacture and distribute SKITTLES, America’s anti-Communist breakfast treat. In this edition, we celebrate the celebration: movie gatherings of friends and colleagues in the form of dinner parties, galas and anarchic orgiastic excesses (just kidding about the latter, though we probably have your attention). The following twelve images, each feature a scene of a celebratory gathering. Your job is to determine from which film each image has been taken. The first to solve the mystery will receive the coveted CSR Culture Shock Award, which automatically confers immunity from unbiased investigation from the FBI, no matter how blatant and unapologetic the offense. Good luck.
1) Singing in the Rain
2) Romeo and Juliet (1968)

5) All About Eve
7) The Big Country
14) Hannah and her Sisters
16) Magnificent Obsession(?)
How’d I do?
Nine out of ten.
Stumbled a bit here. I got ‘Rope’ and ‘Hannah and Her Sisters’, then flagged on a few.
That ‘I know this, but can’t think of the name moment.’
Then I remembered ‘All About Eve’, and ‘Magnificent Obsession.’ So, only four. A poor showing, but it’s late here, and I’m tired.
(That’s my excuse for being 64 and losing my memory.)
Best wishes, Pete.
Three out of four ain’t bad.
So I made the wrong call, eh?
Oh well, life goes on.
Are you publishing the answers?
I am going to print up an answer page on a sister site-in-the-works. You will be the first to know when it’s done.
Thanks, Chandler. I am still suitably shame-faced, and resting on my age!
