“That’s Where the Money Is”: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, Oct. 2019 Edition, Vol. 2%


WHERE’S THE NIGHT DEPOSIT SLOT?: If you open an account at Fort Knox, do you receive a promotional toaster? Just one of the many questions you’ll never get an answer to in this month’s edition of the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz.

“That’s Where the Money Is”:  Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, Oct. 2019 Edition, Vol. 2%

Consistent with our desire to occasionally present what might be leniently considered a public service in order to maintain a favorable tax status and to fool WordPress into thinking this site is anything but an obvious candidate for immediate expulsion for the good of society at large (unless, of course, we name names-  in essence become a whistle blower  -which we can assure all guilty parties we would never do, not due any inherent code of honor, but merely due to the fact that we don’t care enough to pay attention and notice who you are anyway), we present this very special (not really, although souvenir programs are available for purchase in the lobby) edition of America’s favorite monthly bipartisan cerebral slugfest, the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you by those fine folks who bring you SKITTLES, America’s favorite breakfast candy which has also been recommended by 3 out of 4 doctors as a safe and effective substitution for vaping. In this edition, we look at the logic of Willie Sutton’s comment as to why he robs banks and its application in the world of cinema. The following twenty five images reflect Hollywood’s hearty obsession with financial success without the bothersome need for legitimate effort and remuneration through that time honored tradition of bank robbery. (This same formula might also apply in the film depiction of lawyers and politicians, but even CSR has some standards not to endorse repulsive materials.) While CSR certainly doesn’t endorse the premature withdrawal of a bank account you’ve yet to open, we always enjoy indulging in exposing the industry of hypocrite moral watchdogs wallowing in the production of material which promotes antisocial behavior (which, ironically- signals the need for more-  dare we say it?  -lawyers and politicians). ‘Tis a shifty business, but CSR is on top of it. In the meantime, your task, should you decide to accept it, is to correctly identify all twenty five films. The first to do so will receive the CSR Culture Shock Award, a trophy the equal of the Nobel Prize though having the advantage of the recipient not having to be breathed on by those pesky Swedes. 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.

    Don’t know how Pete does this. I mean, I’ve seen Cash on Demand but I would never have made the connection.

    Okay, the wine doesn’t get opened until 6 pm, and it’s only 4:20.

    5) The League Of Gentlemen

    Best wishes, Ed Wood.

    I still don’t know how I did last time, and get the feeling this is going to give me a headache. I will be back later, before I open the wine!
    Best wishes, Dom Pierre Perignon.
