67 Years and No Relief in Sight: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, March 2019 Edition, Vol. 1952



NEWS FLASH: The prototype Feather ‘N’ Tickle Cinema was to be given a lucrative test run in the quiet village of Beetley until a 2018 meeting of the Parish Council reminded the citizens of the national English ban on fun and pleasure.

67 Years and No Relief in Sight: Classic Film Photo Quiz, Mar. 2019 Edition, Vol. 1952

    Some men are born to greatness. Some have greatness thrust upon them, And some just won’t go away. Which brings us to yet another edition of America’s (The Former Colonies for those who have not kept up with their The Federalist subscriptions.) favorite irritant that doesn’t require relief with a topical ointment, the Classic Film Images Photo67gif1.gif Quiz, brought to you, as always, by those fine folks who distribute SKITTLES, America’s favorite breakfast candy; also available at the Beetley Q8 Petroleum (along with a selection of “funny” magazines under the counter; use the code word: WHIPLASH) In this edition we celebrate the life and legacy (well, the presence anyway) of one of CSR’s most persistent reader contributors (AKA anarchistic instigator) and as such may be legitimately eligible for intensive therapy as medically certified by that great and vast social experiment known as Chandler Swain Reviews. However, in celebration of our same good buddy from the far shores of Beetley (and we do suggest you visit his site at:  https://beetleypete.com, one of the most literate and readable havens on the Web) we present a look at his 67 years as reflected in the cinema. The following sixty seven images each represent a year in the life of our pal Pete, though we suspect without the occasional pictured lingerie. Your task is to correctly identify all sixty seven photos. The first to do so will receive the relatively new but still adolescently difficult CSR Culture Shock Award, transferable for one free seat at the Thursday Night Vatican City College of Cardinals Poker Night. 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.

    OK, here goes. As I am 67 on the 16th of this month, I will try this in reverse order.
    67) OK, I haven’t seen it, But read a preview. ‘Dumbo’, with Michael Keaton.
    66) Lizzie. The film about Lizzie Borden. (only seen a trailer though.)
    65) In The Fade. (My kind of film)
    64) Elle. (A Verhoeven film.)
    63) Carol. (I loved that film, but most people didn’t.)
    62) Nope. Too dark for these ageing eyes!
    61) Blue Is The Warmest Colour. (Loved that film!)
    60) The Big Short. (I don’t normally watch Carrell, but have seen that. It’s a guess though.)

    03) Nope. (You got me good there!)
    02) A Guess. Susan Slept Here. The Dick Powell film?

    Phew! That was not only the longest blog comment ever, but it finally busted the scroll wheel on my mouse! Eight Nopes, and a good few guesses. I have no idea how many I got right, but will be happy if it got close to 50. Dinner is late tonight, because of this. (7 pm here, and I haven’t started cooking.) 🙂
    Thanks again, and best wishes. Pete.

    Many I know, many I don’t…but, aside from the great nod to Pete, it also reminds me of the enduring power of cinema – these images capture the energy, passion and drama of motion pictures, such a unique experience!

  3. Alex Good says:

    There are so many of these that I’m just not firing on. I’ll only pick a few low-hanging fruit and not go crazy guessing.

    1) The Band Wagon
    16) Rosemary’s Baby
    36) The Unbearable Lightness of Being
    48) American Psycho

    Well I am suitably honoured by your kind words, and this wonderful tribute to my rapidly advancing years, Chandler. But feeling the pressure to get more than 19 or 20 of these, of course. I am going to need more coffee, and a day of abstinence from wine too. I will get back to you on this mammoth quiz, when my brain is sharper than it is right now. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
