Seasons Gratings: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, 2018 Advent Calendar Edition, Vol. 50% off
In observance of this festive holiday season, the good folk at Chandler Swain Reviews have decided to desist from the usual obvious jabs at Hillary Clinton, Maxine Waters and the rest of that cadre of cauldron stirring crones to whom the hashtag #MeToo is useful only as a response to the musical question: “who else would like a bribe”? And with that bit of magnanimous conciliation we present this month’s special edition, brought to you in special CSR Daytime Savings Time (special glasses needed to participate are available at 7-Eleven locations nationwide, free with any purchase of a specially up/down marked Florida Orange Recount Slurpee), of America’s most popular reason for giving up the Internet, the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you, as always, by those good folks who provide the world SKITTLES, America’s favorite breakfast candy. In this edition we present the cinematic equivalent of a Christmas Advent Calendar, with a twenty six photo countdown to the Day of Yule (Brynner?) with letters substituting for numbers. Don’t look for candy behind the flaps as that great social scientist Michelle Obama, famous for imposing the ” Lunchtime Purging Project” on the nation’s schoolchildren with the introduction of kale-rich menus, quietly forced lawmakers (through threats of removing the Congressional Martini Bar with a buffet of cruciferous vegetables) to enact Congressional Resolution “AH485911647-0019287756 which provides that “no online advent calendar may offer any other than samplings of sarcasm rather than pleasing, sugary treats, exempt are WH Executive editions which may grant offerings of yummy half smokes and tobacco products to Oval Office participants”, an elitist and inhumane proclamation roundly applauded by our caustically antisocial editorial offices. Way to go, babe. But I digress… The following twenty six images are randomly selected from our extensive (a whole drawer full!) photo archives of useless movie stills. There is to be no thematic connection among the pictures to be inferred beyond that of our usual motive in attempting to baffle, confuse and otherwise annoy the whole of the Internet reading world, with a special attention given to one particularly crabby Brit (and Alex). The challenge is the usual one of identification of the films depicted, this time with a twist. In deference to the difficulty with which these puzzles are met by those who don’t have the answers right in front of them when putting them together, we have devised, for this edition, a kind of excogitative cheat sheet in labelling the photos with an alphabetical rather than numerical designation. The name of the film will correspond with the letter of the image, thus providing a valuable clue in aiding the correct completion of the puzzle. The first twenty to correctly identify all twenty six film will receive the often imitated and more often declared a public health hazard, the CSR Culture Shock Award, suitable for framing or dipping in a tasty onion dip. Good luck.
