In Black and White: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, June 2020 Edition, Vol. -30-

   What’s black and white and red all over? Pravda naturally. However, when it comes to Hollywood, the answer would more likely be Panda Tartare (being the selflessly dedicated environmentalists they profess to be and all), none of which has anything to do (well, in a roundabout way it does) with introducing this month’s edition of America’s favorite brain buster, the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you, as always, by those amusing folks who bring you SKITTLES, America’s favorite breakfast candy. With apologies to the film industry which is certainly populated by functional illiterates (the only explanation for the terrible scripts moved into production, which surely no one could have possibly read), this edition features the process of reading (“Put down your NOOKS you pathetic losers and crack a real book!” -a message from the American Library Council of Greater Boston and The South Boston Society of Excess Drinking & Historic Public Vomiting) both magazines and newspapers as depicted in film; obviously an activity which is as foreign to the millennial generation as manual typing, dialing a phone or critical thinking, but Life is neither easy nor fair so stop your blubbering, pay attention and learn. The following sweet sixteen images portray a cinematic depiction of using a magazine or newspaper for its intended purpose. Your task is to identify all sixteen films and possibly win (if you’re the first correct contestant) the coveted and sugar-free CSR Culture Shock. 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.

    I lost one of my oldest and best friends to Covid-19 on Saturday. To be honest, I was going to give your quiz a miss. But then I imagined him telling me to ‘just get on and do it’. So here goes, in reverse order.

    16) Lured. (Douglas Sirk, love him. And that’s Lucille Ball)
    15) Shattered Glass.
    14) On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. (Lazenby as Bond. I hate Bond films)
    13) I Wake Up Screaming. (My mum had a thing for Victor Mature)
    12) The Big Clock. (Charles laughton)
    11) I Love Trouble. (Average at best, but Nolte before his face collapsed.)
    10) Death Wish. (I think that’s Bronson)
    09) The Man In The Grey Flannel Suit. (An early look at PTSD, as I recall)
    08) The 7 Faces of Dr Lao. (I think. Strange film, and not great.)
    07) Call Northside 777. (Must have seen that 10 times!)
    06) Sex And the Single Girl. (Fonda and Curtis)
    05) Foreign Correspondent. (Hitchcock reading the newspaper.)
    04) Batman. (1989) (The newspaper gave it away)
    03) Alvin And The Chipmunks. (It must be, from the cover of the magazine. I haven’t seen it)
    02) Rear Window.
    01) Fahrenheit 451

    Okay, I have no idea how I did, but in honour of Brian’s memory, I tried them all.
    Best wishes, Pete.
