Stars Behind Bars: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, May 2019 Edition, Vol. 10 – 20
With the recent collegiate scandal involving several prominent Hollywood actresses doing their thespian best to convince a disgusted populace that their attempts to inflict their less than stellar progeny onto an unsuspecting graduating class of (as seen through Celebr-o-vision) garden variety commoners who just happened to actually apply themselves to the task of educational advancement was actually an act of academic altruism, it has become apparent that instead of enduring yet another installment of the favored perennial exercise in prevarication by the Democrat ruling class, which promises a mass Exodus to the hinterlands of the Marshmallow Fluff of the League of Nations- O Canada -yet never delivers the promised change of address notifications, that they might instead seize upon a fortuitous opportunity and choose to contribute in Making America Less Grating Again by mimicking the example of the unfortunate House of Laughlin by traveling the express exit from polite society and booking an extended stay in the Big House, which would not only separate the cultural snowflakes from imposing their lunatic ideals on a genuine working class from five to life (though the latest Sanders delusion, born- no doubt -of an excess of Vermont cheese, would still afford them the opportunity to write in their favored ethnocentric Maoist even in the comfort of solitary confinement) and thus save the rest of us from having to endure one more electoral season of their interminable irrational clucking? And with that extended introduction, we present yet another version of America’s most trusted model for anti-immigration legislation, the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you by those wonderful border smugglers of SKITTLES, America’s favorite breakfast candy. In this edition, we glory in the very thought of as many Hollywood denizens finding citizenship in a cell block, and feature the many films in which a character is depicted as enjoying such residency. Your task is to observe the following twenty five images and identifying from which films they were sourced. The first to correctly identify all of the images will receive bail in the form of the coveted CSR Culture Shock Award; better than a Presidential Pardon and enjoyable without the danger of itching or unpleasant facial eruptions. Good luck.
A good idea to confuse us with the bars! I have actually watched a great many prison films though. There are quite a few I know straight off, but I suspect some will evade me.
1) Breaker Morant. A great film that I bang on about ever since it was released.
2) Riot In Cell Block 11. (I can’t see Neville Brand, but I reckon it’s that)
3) Boys From Brazil. She was great!
4) A Man Escaped. Classic Bresson film.
5) Rio Bravo. Seen that one a LOT.
6) Brute Force. Burt Lancaster was in that one.
7) Caged. A sort-of guess, but a confident one.
8) Trading Places. Murphy was the clue.
9) Planet of The Apes. The original of course.
10) Birdman of Alcatraz. Lancaster again.
11) Mighty Joe Young. (Too small for King Kong.)
12) 99 Women. Lesbians in prison? Of course I watched that one!
13) Each Dawn I Die. George Raft was a very good clue.
14) House Of Women. As you can tell, I watch any film about women in prison!
15) Jackson County Jail. A woman in prison again, and Tommy Lee Jones was in it.
16) Cry Baby. Had to be, as it’s johnny Depp.
17) Nope. (A very dark still for these eyes)
18) Escape From Alcatraz. No Eastwood, but I guessed it would feature.
19) Fury. A Fritz Lang film. Spencer and the dog gave it away.
20) Nope. Sexy girl in prison, but too dark for me again.
21) One-Eyed Jacks.
22) Nope. Looks ‘military’, but it beat me.
23) I want To Live. I recognised Susan Hayward.
24) Take The Money And Run.
25) Hunger. That’s Fassbender.
So, 3 nopes, mainly due to poor eyesight. And a reasonably confident 22/25.
But tell me I’m wrong… 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
Lordy, but you are wrong on so many levels: morally… well, let’s stop right there ’cause that’s the fun stuff. But on this, Mr. Show Off, you are impeccably right. Must be the pain medication. (Have you seen a doctor yet?) I am looking into having a local seamstress knit you a Nerf Suit to prevent any further dog related “accidents”.

I had to look up what a Nerf Suit was.
Actually, I am 50% better today, and maybe the huge build-up of over the counter pain killers did sharpen my brain. Or more likely I have just seen far too many prison films in the last 60+ years.

Aha. So as usual, my posts not only provide succor for education and enlightenment, but also impart dubious life lessons. I have no idea what I’m talking about. A life lesson for us all.
