Ups 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), the 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.
