Summer Beach Books:  Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, June 2017 Edition, Vol. 925

At the dawn of the upcoming summer vacation season, it can never be too early to begin the selection process in making seasonal selections of those printed items which tell stories about people other than ourselves (yes Snowflakes, there really is an entire universe outside of the reach of your selfie sticks!), to be enjoyed while carelessly lolling on the sandy beaches of the resort world’s  to the financial benefit of dermatologists around the globe. We are, of course, talking about books, and more specifically books that find happy recommendation for beach reading. However, rather than the usual franchise potboilers, tawdry romances or celebrity tell alls (which, ironically, usually spend a great deal of time identifying just who the hell they are and why they imagine we should care), we are taking this occasion to exalt the merits of those timeless works of literature which have found popular representation in both comic and cinematic forms. Which, not so coincidentally, brings us to the theme of this month’s edition of America’s most fascinating source of cultural, political, religious and existential confusion, the monthly Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you today by the dedicated people who strive, despite progressive lefty interference, to bring the Free World SKITTLES, America’s favorite non-genetically altered breakfast candy. In this edition we celebrate those film which have found inspiration from some of the greatest and most enduring written works known to all but the current crop of collegiate parasites, with an emphasis on those works which have also been popularly represented by the Classics Illustrated Comics series. Your job is to identify the films from which the following twelve images have been taken. The first to successfully complete this task will receive the highly respected CSR Culture Shock Award, good for three nights free stay at the Gulag of your choice. Good luck.

About chandlerswainreviews

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.
