   In deference to the mass fraud being perpetuated on a global scale by the proponents of  the British Tourism Council in which we find True Love (Tower of London-Style) being reduced to a three-ring circus (sans tigers and elephants, thanks to progressive activists who would better serve society as shark chum) in which the nuptial sharing of a couple’s favorite tune is regally replaced by a more stoic and traditional proffering (no, not Sinatra’s version of “The Second Time Around”); after all, what speaks the languagedogsGIF of young love more than a hardy liturgical chant (?), we bring you a special edition of America’s (that’s right, we’re still a feisty and rebellious bunch of Colonial hooligans) favorite self-righteous application of Constitutional freedoms, the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you, in this special Royal Wedding Edition (what?), by SKITTLES, America’s favorite non-prescription oral contraception substitute. (And if you can decipher what any of that meant, send your transcription, in a SASE, to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Washington, D.C.) In this edition, we celebrate the True symbol of the greatest love of all: the furry pooch (Unless they’re wet, then they smell like a pack of New York Yankees fans on a crowded E Train.) and their appearance in the cinema. (Wasn’t it Robert Burns who said “No greater Love has Man than for that which has kibble breath”? Maybe not.) The following twenty images feature those lovable little lugs who will surrender to eternal allegiance without the necessity of a ceremony more costly than the annual GDP of Denmark. (In actuality, it’s a lot less than that; usually amounting to little more than an open bag of Snausages.) It is your job to identify the twenty films in which these frisky little furballs appeared,  and let us know (without the use of wiretaps, if you please) your findings. The first to correctly identify all twenty films will (eventually) receive the coveted CSR Culture Shock Award, unavailable for bridal registry in department stores near you. 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. Brilliant selection of crazy dog pictures. I’ve been trying to get excited by the royal wedding. The best I can do with it is be glad it isn’t another school shooting or something bizarre said by He Who Shall Not Be Named.

  2. Alex Good says:

    I can provide a little assistance here. I don’t know movies that well, but I love dogs.

    Just adding to what Pete has done (and making one correction):

    3) Sleeper
    6) The Plague Dogs
    12) The Road Warrior (or Mad Max 2)
    18) A Boy and his Dog

      Sleeper? The Woody Allen film? I have seen that, and don’t recall the dog at all. Must be getting old. Mad Max, I only saw the first one, and a bit of ‘Thunderdome’. At least I was in the right ball park. 🙂 The other two I have never seen, so don’t mind not getting those.
      Thanks, Alex. Best wishes, Pete.

      • Alex Good says:

        Yes, it’s the Woody Allen film. I think the robot dog’s name was Rags. He was pretty useless and as I recall when the police came calling all he could do was bumble around saying “Hi, I’m Rags!”

        It’s interesting what stays in your head and what doesn’t. I haven’t see The Omen for years, and I wouldn’t have thought that image was particularly memorable, but as soon as I saw it I got it immediately. Meanwhile I’m pretty sure I’ve seen 4 but I can’t place it now.

  3. Like Pete, my brain let me down with several of these. Number 2 and number 11 are foreboding shots. I hope you will give the answers soon.

  4. beetleypete says:

    Despite having owned many dogs over the decades, (and I have one sitting next to me now) I don’t fancy my chances much this time. Unless it is Asta in a Thin Man film, or Marley and Me, because my wife likes it, my only personal favourite dog films are ‘Bombon El Perro, (2004) and the tear-jerker, ‘Hachi’ (2009). Gets me every time! Here goes nothing, in reverse order.

    20) Disney’s The Shaggy Dog. My Mum took me to see that. I don’t remember anything about it, except the title.
    19) That’s Pee-Wee Herman’s dog, from Big Adventure. I watched that with my step-kids a long time ago, and would not have recalled the dog’s name. Fortunately, ‘Speck’ is written on his bowl.
    18) No idea.
    17) Lady and The Tramp. I should know that one.
    16) The sepia suggests a silent film, but I can’t get it.
    15) Cujo? (Guess, sort of) I read the book, and watched it on VHS. Not sure though.
    14) The Thing. Now you’re talking, Chandler!
    13) The Artist. (Can’t remember the dog’s name though)
    12) Mad Max. The shotgun was the clue!
    11) It’s familiar, but my brain let me down.
    10) Wizard of Oz. That’s Toto.
    09) Nope.
    08) The Omen. I have seen that more than a few times.
    07) Ah, Umberto D. Never forgotten that, must be 50 years…
    06) Not a clue.
    05) As good As It Gets. I have a real soft spot for that film.
    04) No, didn’t register.
    03) Looks like a robot dog, but I am none the wiser.
    02) Maybe some desert warfare, but the title eludes me.
    01) Miller’s Crossing. It took a while, but the old car helped.

    So, not great, as predicted. I make that 11/20, plus the guess of Cujo. Maybe 12. Poor indeed.
    Good challenge, Chandler.
    Best wishes, Pete.
