Variety is the Spice of Life: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, June 2019 Edition, Vol. 57

    In keeping with the CSR tradition of taking an entire month to upgrade, update and perform a much needed Spring Cleaning on the site, regular readers may note with puzzlement that nothing has much changed since we have last published. Honestly, this is due to the fact that we’ve spent most of our off-time implementing a long gestating political plot (known in MI5 circles as “Codename: Ollie”) to harass certain disappointing global players through the surreptitious ordering of excessive amounts of pizza for the Breckland district and billing all deliveries to Number 10. (The history books, John Cleese and the stockholders at Domino’s Pizza, Inc. will thank us.) And with that in mind, we present this month’s edition of the EU’s favorite Brexit Party favor, the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you this month by the distributors of SKITTLES, America’s favorite breakfast candy, and by Typhoo, the preferred beverage of Parliamentary twits. In this edition, we celebrate the annual emptying of the archival dustbins with the presentation of a few pictorial odds and ends, meaninglessly strung together in an attempt to advance the illusion that we care about this silly diversion anymore. The following twenty five images reflect a selection of films that we find moderately interesting enough to include in this puzzle. Your task is to identify all twenty five films. No hints. No clues. The first to do so will be granted first rights of refusal to ownership of that most coveted of limited edition fireplace mantel knick knacks, the CSR Culture Shock Award. 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.

    The only thing I might be able to add to Pete’s list is 23, which I think is Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.

    OK, grass cut, and I am back! (I really did cut the grass!)

    1) Last Tango in Paris. (Pass the butter, Marlon)
    2) Vivement Dimanche. (The lovely Fanny Ardant)
    3) Seven Men From Now. (I worked back from Randolph Scott in a western, remembered Lee Marvin was in it, and looked up the title. Up to you if you credit this one.)
    4) You Can’t Cheat An Honest Man. (I love WC Fields)
    5) The Terror. (Boris Karloff, as I recall)
    6) Tom Horn. (That’s a good McQueen western)
    7) Paper Moon. (I’m singing the song now…)
    8) Mister Roberts. (Great Cagney film)
    9) Hot Enough For June. (Awful spy spoof!)
    10) The Mummy? (I know it’s Hammer, and Yvonne someone. So I looked up Yvonne and Hammer films, and got the Mummy. Bit of a cheat really)
    11) The Smallest Show On Earth. (Love that film!)
    12) The Ceremony. (Huppert/Chabrol. Great stuff!)
    13) The Wolf Man. (Lon Chaney Jnr original perhaps?)
    14) How To Marry A Millionaire.
    15) Red Beard. (Kurosawa, one of the best!)
    16) You beat me. (I know it’s Antonioni, but I cannot remember the title)
    17) The Bonnie Parker Story. (Dorothy Provine was better looking that the real Bonnie. Then so was Faye Dunaway)
    18) Curse Of The Werewolf. (Hammer again!)
    19) Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines. (Vintage nonsense)
    20) Inga. I saw this at the NFT. (It was considered ‘pornographic’ at the time! 🙂 )
    21) The Railway Children. (Who doesn’t want to see Jenny remove her bloomers?)
    22) Nope. Too dark for my eyes.
    23) Nope. Not a clue.
    24) Day For Night.
    25) La Peau Douce. (Truffaut again)

    Well, I was low on coffee, and hadn’t opened the red wine. I will leave you to mark my paper this time. I need to get in the bath and get all the bits of grass off. Then there’s a bottle of Merlot with my name on it.

    • You have an astonishing twenty one out of twenty five identified correctly (with only one mistaken guess). Such an occasion probably merits some sort of commemorative gesture, but then again you were putting the moves on Bea Arthur so you may have been rewarded enough. Did you ever think about cutting the grass with a scythe? Then passing tourists could say, “look, it’s that crazy old guy from Beetley”…, then again, the scythe probably wouldn’t add anything to the story, so forget it.

        They wouldn’t see me, as the grass is at the back. Besides, there are no tourists in Beetley anyway. 🙂 Thanks for my score.

    I agree with Pete that it’s time to cut the grass: I only knew a few of these right off, but I know one thing – it’s a GREAT collection of moments from classic films – bravo!

  4. beetleypete says:

    Oh-oh. This looks tricky. I have recognised a couple from scrolling through quickly, and I have to say that Bea Arthur looks quite good with a black bob. (Shows I’m getting old…)
    But I have to go and cut the grass, so will have to return another time.
    (Any excuse to avoid the inevitable brain-ache)
    Best wishes, U Thant.
