Stayin Cool: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, Special 4th of July 2018 Edition, Vol. 1776

underwater11Cool and Refreshing:  Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, Special 4th of July 2018 Edition, Vol. 1776

With the current East Coast heatwave setting record temperatures exceeding those of the last time we had a warm day (it’s not really global warming, it’s called Summer… get a calendar), it seems a opportune time for a bit of relief for those in the Great Undeveloped Northeast who have yet to understand the concept of installing air conditioning in buildings (“But Summer is only a few months of the year”, say they. The logical response being, “So is Winter, so why have heat?”), but instead retreat to beach areas where the sand is only likely to magnify the temperature tenfold. (MIT grads, all.): So,underwater GIF for those sweltering in the holiday heat (awaiting the inevitable pseudo-arson fires that are bound to checker the local neighborhoods throughout the night due to injudicious usage of homemade bottle rockets in the living room, in celebration of yet another American holiday that has been vulgarized to resemble little more than car sales and yet another occasion to perform a perplexing Russian musical composition as the unofficial overture for what is undoubtedly our most significant American holiday), we present a brief, cool and refreshing respite from the sun with a very special edition of the Founding Father’s favorite pastime (though such a addictive distraction, they deliberately excluded  all mention of it in the Declaration of Independence), the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you today by the makers of SKITTLES, America’s most patriotic breakfast candy. In this edition we celebrate the cooling effect of complete immersion in liquid in the cinema. Your task is to view the following sixteen images and to identify the movies from which they have been sourced. The first to successfully do so will receive that obvious replacement for the Order of Lenin, the CSR Culture Shock Award. 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.

    Hmm…I don’t tend to watch many underwater films, save for The Abyss, and Splash, but I must have come across some, in over 55 years of regular film-going.. Here goes, without looking at the other comments.
    16) Not a clue.
    15) The Descendants. Saw that on TV.
    14) The Deep. Who could forget Ms Bisset’s t-shirt?
    13) I’m thinking ‘Fantastic Voyage’, no idea why. 🙂
    12) Splash. The lovely Daryl Hannah.
    11) Jaws.
    10) I know this is A Cure For Wellness, as I have seen a trailer. But I haven’t seen the film so no claim.
    09) No idea.
    08) Amphibian Man. A 60s Russian film that I saw decades ago at the NFT in London. Weird.
    07) 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. Classic stuff.
    06) The Lure. Polish mermaid strippers! 🙂
    05) Winslet in a Shakespeare adaptation, but don’t know which one.
    04) Creature From The Black Lagoon. Great 50s stuff!
    03) Thunderball. Connery as Bond, when I still watched Bond films. I was only 13!
    02) A cute film with a dolphin, that I have never seen!

    10/16 at best. good tricky one, Chandler.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    Happy 4th Chandler!

    I don’t think I’ve seen many of these.

    2) looks like Sean. Playing Bond? Underwater? Best guess is Thunderball or Never Say Never Again. Haven’t seen either in twenty years.
    3) one of the Creature from the Black Lagoon movies. I’ll guess the first.
    4) Branagh’s Hamlet
    6) this one I have seen, but can’t remember it
    7) 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
    10) Cure for Wellness
    11) Jaws
    14) the boobs make me think it’s an Andy Sidaris movie, but it probably isn’t.

  3. Fantastic post, Chandler. Perfectly thought out for the season. I do wish you’d share the answers. Whats number 4? Obviously, Kate W. But I can’t place the film. #14. Really. Ha! What woman would wear that scuba diving? LOL. Thanks for #2–my eye candy.
