Ups and Downs: Classic Film Photo Quiz, March 2018 Edition, Vol. B-10

elevator7Ups and Downs: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, March 2018 Edition, Vol. B-10

    Life has its ups and downs. One day you’re assured to ascend to the throne of power armed with a sense of entitlement second only to (perhaps) Ming the Merciless, and the next your doing everything you can to avoid the hormonal proclivities of your husband in Chappaqua. If anything is certain, it’s that a boundless sense of optimism is inevitably fated to be met with-  as they say in the gangster flickers  -“the hot kiss at the end of a wet gun.” (What?) And with this bit of philosophical inconsequence we bring to you yet another in an unnecessary series of complete wastes of time (rather like watching the O Network), theelevatorgif2 Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you, as always by those folks who smuggle to your neighborhood grocery pusher,  SKITTLES, America’s favorite brain booster. In this installment we celebrate that which travels up and down (no not my 40 shares of Amalgamated Dog Toupees Inc.) in life and in the pictures, which is, of course, the humble elevator. The following twenty stills celebrate the useful appearance and sometimes impractical usage of this modern vertical conveyance in the cinema. Your job, your task, your challenge (all three), is to correctly identify all twenty one pictures. The first to do so will receive the recently arrived (and marked to trace counterfeiters) CSR Culture Award, the only internet honorarium that is a simultaneous source of excitement and disappointment. (Life do have its ups and downs, after all.) 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.

    Thanks for following my blog, Chandler. For some vain reason, I thought you already had!
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • I had. For some strange reason known only to WordPress, several of my follows were removed without my knowledge. I was getting suspicious when no new posts were forthcoming from you, but thought you might be taking a break. Guess I should have checked. I suspect Russian involvement.

    I want to believe I know 12 out of 21 for sure, but I won’t name them for fear of embarrassment. I have to say it is a pretty difficult quiz. Some are easy to guess while others are just so difficult.

  3. I know about half of them, but don’t remember any of the titles. I also forget the names of most actors.

  4. beetleypete says:

    OK, here goes.
    1) North by Northwest.
    2) Lost In Translation.
    3) No idea.
    4) Dressed To Kill.
    5) Diamonds Are Forever.
    6) The Apartment.
    7) I never watched any of the films but recognise the actors. The Hangover? ( 1,2,or 3 I don’t know)
    8) No idea.
    9) Pillow Talk.
    10) The Untouchables.
    11) Not a clue.
    12) Ryan Gosling in ‘Drive’.
    13) Three Days of The Condor. (Great film!)
    14) Titanic.
    15) I haven’t seen it, but recognise the girl. Fifty Shades of Grey.
    16) ‘Switchblade’ something or other. Gang girls in a cult film. I vaguely recall it.
    17) Lift To The Scaffold. 1950s French film.
    18) Thoroughly Modern Millie.
    19) Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas.
    20) Lady In A Cage. (Classic!)
    21) No idea.

    So 16 confident, one so-so, and four unknown to me. I’m happy enough.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    You scooped me, Chandler! I was going to have an elevator quiz too!

    Hmm.

    2: Lost in Translation? I remember Murray being in Japan in that movie.
    4: Dressed to Kill
    6: The Apartment
    5: Diamonds Are Forever
    13: Three Days of the Condor
    15: Fifty Shades of Grey?

    Couple of others seem real familiar but I can’t make the full synaptic connection. I think I need to eat the Skittles first.
