Over Troubled Waters: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, Nov. 2017 Edition, Vol. 7384750069858
As the song goes, “what goes up, must come down”. That’s right, you may have been expecting a little slice of Paul Simon, but it is the sworn duty of everyone here at the administrative offices of CSR to confound, confuse and disrupt the flow of thought, the momentum of action and the source for any mental designs upon our readership to upset the delicate flow of control of thought on these pages. So there. That being said, it is time, once again, for the latest edition of the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, or as it was once listed in the unabridged Oxford English Dictionary (before they caught on to our penciling it in on the updated galleys), “America’s favorite (well, you really don’t have any choice in the matter …do you?) complete waste of time” probably better spent at solving such a minor problem as how to magically reduce a certain Fat Kid on the far edge of the Pacific Rim into the contents of a dustbin, but this is the burden to which all good men and women must be subjected in a free and open society. Again, so there. Anyway, to the task at hand. In this edition, brought to you- as always -by those crazy folk who market the Free World’s favorite breakfast candy, SKITTLES, (except in Vermont, where the preferred snack food is swallowing bile), we celebrate those curious but necessary structures called bridges, and their timely appearances in motion pictures. (Timely since there would be an awful lot of drowning actors if they were forced to cross even a puddle without the assistance of a team of heavily armed assistants, body doubles and chiropractic consultants.) Each of the following sixteen images is taken from a film in which a bridge features prominently. Your task is to identify all sixteen photos, let us know of your conclusions and await either congratulations or commiserations on your efforts. The first to correctly identify all of the images will receive, whether they like it or not, the sacred CSR Culture Shock Award, the only religious icon useful as an oral contraceptive. (Just tell anyone you are the proud possessor of the Award and they’re guaranteed to refuse to sleep with you.) Good luck.
