Damsels in Distress: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, Oct. 2017 Edition, Vol. o – o

distressgif2Damsels in Distress: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, Oct, 2017 Edition, Vol. o – o

     It may be politically incorrect to point out the obvious fact that holding a door open for a lady might well bring widespread repercussions of accusations of sexism, misogyny, gender bias, economic injustice and perhaps even homosexual panic, though in our experience here at CSR headquarters, our non-male staffers are generally mollified by under the table non-disclosure agreed payments of tens and twenties. What this has to do with this month’s edition of America’s favorite civil rights violation, the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz (brought to you, as always, by the F.R.I.E,N.D.S. oSKITTLES, the Freedom Caucus protecting your right to enjoy America’s favorite breakfast candy), is beyond our understanding, but it’s getting increasingly difficult to make snarky remarks about an unnamed fiery sore loser and her latest volume of masochistic wish fulfillment, so bear with us, and expect a slender envelope under the door at any minute.  In the meantime, now seems as appropriate time as any to mend any fences with the fairer sex and celebrate the silver screen’s attention to endangered debs; those fair ladies who, for one reason or another, find themselves overwhelmed by danger, either physically or psychologically, yet all had the class and fortitude never to sink into a self-pitying wallow, screaming to the heavens “What Happened?” (There. That wasn’t so hard after all.) The following sweet sixteen images come from films in which the illustrated woman is facing a severely taxing situation. Your job, as always, is to identify the name of all sixteen films; the first to do so will receive the celebrated gender neutral (though, reportedly, still chauvinistic) CSR Culture Shock Award, America’s sweetest confection since the invention of horehound candy. 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.
