All Quiet on the Western Omelette:  Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, Jan. 2018 Edition, Vol. 1/2 & 1/2

    The start of a new year brings with it it’s own set of leftover problems to which the average person attempts to avert the hands of Fate (as opposed to Hollywood “Handsies of Fate” for which Meryl Streep is certainly award bait for her unbelievable performance as Sgt. Schultz) by declaring a sudden epiphany of self-improvement in the form of resolutions, which is really an annual ritual of deceit and familial subterfuge. (That’s why it’s the national holiday of a certain Fat Kid in a Pyongyang far, far away.) And with that admission of informed disgust we now bring you this month’s edition of America’s most admired reason to “Admit Hopelessness In a Cruel World Infested With Corruption, Selfishness, Misogyny, Racism and Bitter National Division” (and that’s a direct seasonal greetings quotation from Chuck Schumer’s Christmas card), the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you, in this time zone, by SKITTLES, America’s favorite alternative to SuperBeets. In this edition we celebrate a different kind of beginning, the daily kind: the All-American Breakfast, at least as depicted in the cinema. Each of the following baker’s dozen images is a scene from a film in which breakfast is a heart healthy way to introduce hunger pains for lunch. Your mission is to identify all thirteen images. Simple. Tell us. Simple. The first to do so will receive that most rare of rare jewels, the coveted CSR Culture Shock Award. Not so simple, since our latest shipment (Pete and Alex, don’t worry, they’re on their way) is being held up by the red tape of foreign manufacturing importation tariffs, which will teach us a lesson to never have anything else made in Vermont. Good luck.

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.

    1) Big Night. (Love that film!)
    2) The Kid. (Not a huge Chaplin fan, but I have seen it)
    3) Is it Pee Wee Herman? Not sure of the film title.
    4) Pulp Fiction. (Surely everyone will get that one?)
    5) Try as I might, I cannot remember…(Two bottles of red wine last night)
    6) Battleground, Van Johnson. (Same surname as me!)
    7) McClintock. (John Wayne film that I didn’t like much)
    8) Pleasantville. (William H. Macy in the background)
    9) I have never seen this one.
    10) Some Eastwood film I have forgotten…
    11) Hatari. ( An awful film that my parents took me to see at the cinema)
    12) Stalag 17. A classic POW film.
    13) Never seen it, I’m almost certain.

    Only 8 ‘definites’ for me this time. Blame the red wine, and staying up until 2 am. Or maybe the memory is finally failing. After all, I am almost 66 years old. 🙂
    Best wishes, and a Happy New Year. Pete.

      Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But even with a good one fueling me I can’t add anything to your impressive (as always) work here. I am pretty sure I’ve seen 9, but it’s not coming to me.

      • beetleypete says:

        Thanks, Alex. As I didn’t know 9, I googled it and found the title. But I have never seen it, so didn’t add the answer. I must not cheat, or there would be no point! 🙂
        Best wishes, Pete.
