Alone Again, Unnaturally:  Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, Apr. 2020 Edition, Vol. 4077

Emerging from a self-imposed exile just in time to notice that the rest of the world seems to have cribbed our idea for a temporary avoidance of socialization (there would be a pending lawsuit for violation of intellectual property except that China is involved and we know that quarantined ship has sailed far too many times for comfort), we here at CSR have decided to be a world leader (since the example set by the Center for Disease Confusion appears incapable of explaining as to just what useful preparatory and preventative measures they’ve spent billions of dollars and supposedly dedicated decades of study on except possibly in renting several copies of  “Outbreak”) in the administration of the correct employment of social distancing for fun and profit. (We have been lauded as pioneers in ignoring Vermont for years.) Just consider that the marshaling of all the collected knowledge and wisdom of global governments and medical experts being reduced to a simple “don’t go near your neighbor”, while we’ve been doing exactly that that for years and but have unjustly been regarded as “effete snobs” (thank you Spiro Agnew) for our efforts. With this bit of skewered social engineering in mind we present this month’s edition-  and return of  -America’s most antiseptic source of brain mold, the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you, as always, by the distributors of SKITTLES, America’s favorite breakfast candy. In this edition, we consider the humble occasion of solitary confinement as documented in the motion picture (sort of like sitting in one of the empty movie houses dotting the globe, only without the rodents and the prerequisite gummy floors). Your task (and remember, a task is as good as a sucker bet… whatever, we’re film critics, not theologians) is to correctly identify the twenty five images and the titles of the films they are sourced from (nice try Butch, but just acknowledging there are twenty five pictures doesn’t win any bouquets). The first to correctly identify all twenty five will receive the 99.9% germ free CSR Culture Shock Award. Good luck.

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.

    Good to see you back in your role as QuizMaster, Chandler. Unfortunately, I haven’t got any better with these. Bunch of obvious ones here I’m not getting. All I could come up with:

    1 The Great Escape
    5 White Heat
    8 Papillon
    14 Carrie (original version)
    15 Bronson
    24 THX 1138
