     It is with great sorrow that we at Chandler Swain Reviews regret to inform you that our traditional method of signaling the opening of the calendar month with the release of an all new Classic Film Images Photo Quiz will continue. Regardless of the thousandsalaborgif of pleas to desist from our loyal reader, as well as one particularly curious promissory threat of hostilities, delivered from a country to remain unmentioned but located in the Pacific Rim by diplomatic pouch, advising an immediate cessation to our monthly exercise in quizmaster frivolity, we shall continue. Granted, one of the primary burdens in compiling a monthly photo quiz which is both challenging and interesting to the reader is the invention of a theme which will allow for the compilation of images that are aesthetically nurturing to the eye as well as compellingly connective to that theme in a way which will enhance the puzzle solving experience, but in this month’s edition we have discarded any such laborious notions. So, without further ado we bring you this month’s edition (didn’t we just say that?) of America’s favorite cerebral exercise without the benefit of Jell-O or female wrestlers, the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you as always by those grand folks who bring you SKITTLES, America’s favorite breakfast candy. In this edition, we have simply, once again, dug our ink-stained little paws into our photo archives and have retrieved whatever fate determines to be a baseless and totally random series of interesting but nevertheless unconnected pieces to a larger puzzle. So, it is up to you to identify all thirty of the following images from the world of cinema without the assistance of a thematic clue. Ha! The first to correctly identify all thirty films will receive the all-knowing, all-seeing, all-digestively regular CSR Culture Shock Award; an internationally recognized testimonial to the fine art of wasting time with panache. 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.

    I only got a couple of these, and none of the ones Pete whiffed on. Though I did Google 17 just out of curiosity. I’m really out of practice.

    Nice to know that the virus didn’t get you. I kept wondering where you had gone!
    No prize for me this time! In reverse order.
    30) Nope.
    29) Conversation Piece. (I’ve had a thing for Silvana ever since seeing Bitter Rice. Can’t get that film on DVD anywhere. She was so hot in that!)
    28) The Wilby Conspiracy.
    27) The Tall Blonde Man. (That doesn’t feel right, but I saw a film with a title like that in the 70s)
    26) Phffft. (Not sure how many ‘f’s)
    25) Trouble Man. (A ‘Blaxploitation’ film that wasn’t very good)
    24) Black Sabbath. (I never forget a film with women putting on nylons. Or taking them off)
    23) Berberian Sound Studio. (I have that on DVD, so I should be right)
    22) Anatahan. (Thanks to the NFT Japanese season for that)
    21) Straw Dogs. (It’s the remake, and I wouldn’t watch it. The first one was nasty enough)
    20) Land of The Pharoahs. (A young Joan Collins!)
    19) The Seven Minutes. (I went to see this as it was a Russ Meyer film, and I expected to see lots of huge-breasted women. But none appeared, and it was awful!)
    18) The Prince and The Pauper.. (Mark Lester was an awful actor, but Raquel Welch was in it…)
    17) Nope.
    16) A Cold Wind In August. (I thought it would be sexier than it is)
    15) I know it is called ‘Antibirth’, but I never bothered to watch it.
    14) Nope.
    13) Prime Cut. Classic stuff from Marvin.
    12) The Appaloosa. (John Saxon)
    11) Nope.
    10) In The French Style. (Jean Seberg)
    09) Nope.
    08) Your Cheatin’ Heart.
    07) Harry And Walter Go To New York. (Awful!)
    06) Nope.
    05) I think it’s a King Kong film, but which one escapes me.
    04) Nope.
    03) Prometheus. (Unlike most people, I really like that film.
    02) Next Stop Greenwich Village.
    01) Little Women. (Don’t know which version but it has to be)

    As you can see, my form is off. It must be the unusually awful weather for August currently bothering me in Beetley. It’s cold!
    So, 7 nopes, and a few shaky titles. A score I would just as soon forget.
    Best wishes, Anthony Fauci.
