Mirror, Mirror:  Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, July 2020 Edition, Vol. XI-IX

    History seems fated to repeat itself. The Age of the Selfie is the direct antecedent of the Golden Age of Mirror Gazing and both depend on the unbecoming ability to be fascinated by one’s own image while simultaneously remaining unaware that the latest series of Botox injections have relieved the elasticity from your natural features and left you with the pop-eyed grimace of a Tiki head. Then again, the rest of us can use a chuckle. With this anecdotal introductory note in mind, we present this month’s edition of America’s most persuasive excuse for the conversion of all secondary schools into heavily fortified reform facilities, the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you, as always, by those fine folks who market SKITTLES, America’s favorite breakfast candy. In this edition we cast our typically gloomy eye on the simple mirror and its narcissistic abuse in the cinema (And believe us when we tell you, we haven’t even scratched the surface.) Your task is to correctly identify all twenty five images and to let us know. Otherwise it’s a rather fruitless venture if you keep it to yourself. The first to correctly identify all will receive the ever-prestigious CSR Culture Shock Award, now fortified with Vitamin B12 and Riboflavin. 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.

    Here we go again!

    1) The Wrong Man. (Fonda)
    2) The Fearless Vampire Killers. (I saw that dubbed into French!)
    3) The Lion In Winter.
    4) House Of Dark Shadows.
    5) Supergirl. (That’s her being ‘normal’)
    6) The Dark Mirror. (Olivia de Havilland, 104 this week!)
    7) Nope.
    8) Frankenstein.
    9) Nope.
    10) The Devil Sisters. (I think. Sure I saw this at the NFT.)
    11) Must be James Bond, so Skyfall?
    12) Nope
    13) Dead of Night. (Love that film!)
    14) Suspiria. (The new version)
    15) Corridor of Mirrors. (A British film!)
    16) Nope.
    17) Modesty Blaise. (Not a great film!)
    18) It’s a Dracula, but which one?
    19) Black Swan.
    20) Prince Of darkness. (John Carpenter film)
    21) Rose of Washington Square. (That’s Alice Faye.)
    22) Nope. (It’s Meryl Streep, but I haven’t seen it.)
    23) Psycho.
    24) Divergent.
    25) The Servant. (Great film!)

    Well, I am suitably ashamed. After my recent good showings, I have 5 ‘nopes’, and one Dracula fail.
    Mirrors are obviously my weak spot, as I try to avoid looking at my own reflection whenever possible.

    Best wishes, Rene Lalique.
