horror0#MeBoo:  Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, Oct. 2020 Edition, Vol. 36-24-36-43

    Amid all of the fuss of the current extended job interview between two fellows who, in the real world, would be underqualified to handle the complexities of being given the responsibility of bagging groceries at the local Trader Joe’s (Thank goodness politics happens to be the lone professional pursuit which mandatorily requires neither experience nor a discernible skill set.), the world seems to have forgotten (or have been mercilesslyhorrorgif distracted from, by the private designs of a shamelessly mind deadening mass media) the critical social issues which just mere months ago were aggressively hammered into our collective skulls as being of such importance that any casual dismissal of said issues would forever corrupt and diminish our very characters into the dustbin of infamy. And so, in the spirit of renewing our commitment to addressing grievous societal ills (though without any commitment to take said ills seriously), we present this month’s edition of Boston’s most revered pastime not containing references to either chowder or taxation, the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you, as always, by those wonderful folks who bring us SKITTLES, America’s favorite breakfast candy. In this Halloween-themed edition we present a celebration of female empowerment and independence as represented in the cinema in the form of horrible, dangerous (often murderous), often supernaturally generated figures of dread and horror (with a special emphasis on one particular-  though unnamed  -individual who all dedicated readers of CSR will certainly not fail to recognize). Your task, is to endure the twenty five frightful images which follow, and to correctly identify the titles of all of the corresponding films. The first to do so will receive the nerve-racking CSR Culture Shock Award, the perfect substitution for an expensive cordial on a dark and stormy night. 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 have the Flu, and I am hating WordPress with a real vengeance. But i will have a try at the answers anyway, just to stop me running screaming into the local river.
    25. Guessing. (Bad start. It looks like Liz Taylor, so could it be Secret Ceremony?)
    24) The She-Creature
    23) Vampire Circus
    22) The Howling (I think)
    21) X, Y and Z (Michael Caine, if I remember right)
    20) Night Of the Living Dead. (Classic!)
    19) Hammersmith Out. (Burton with his wife again)
    18) Clash Of The Titans (That’s Medusa, so it must be the remake)
    17) Winter Kills (I enjoyed that one)
    16) The Beyond (A TV watch for me, not great)
    15) The Flintstones (I prefer the cartoon)
    14) The Witches (Angelica Huston)
    13) The Honeymoon Killers (I have that on DVD)
    12) Identikit (An older Liz, still attractive)
    11) Whoever Slew Aunti Roo? (Shelley was the clue!)
    10) Spirits Of The Dead (A 1960s ‘trilogy’ film)
    09) Looks like Liz again, but it’s a Nope.
    08) The Blue Bird
    07) The City Of The Dead (Christopher Lee)
    06) Hellhole (I had forgotten about that one until I saw the still)
    05) Il Toscanini (I think. I haven’t seen it but I recall the fuss about her blacking up to play an opera singer)
    04) It’s a shipwrecked horror thing, but the title escapes me. Nope.
    03) A Little Night Music
    02) Night Watch
    01) Brides Of Dracula

    Two Nopes and a couple of lame guesses. Maybe 21 correct, if I am lucky. I think I missed your last quiz because I was on holiday and had no computer.

    Best wishes, Peter Cushing.

    Hey, who’s afraid of Liz? She was even OK in a couple of movies.

    • Terrifying woman…. terrifying. Must get an exorcist to cleanse my mind. Dominus vobiscum.

      • Alex Good says:

        Et cum spiritu tuo. I actually know a few of these so I’ll have to get my answers posted. As soon as I figure out what they’ve done to WordPress that makes it so hard to operate now.

        • Not only is their new editor ridiculously complicated, but the informational tutorials they put out remind me of the hieroglyphic interocitor instructions from “This Island Earth”.

          • Alex Good says:

            What is it with this “block editing” nonsense? I don’t write in blocks.

            Your quiz is my refuge from all this madness. I’m not very familiar with Liz’s oeuvre so I’ll leave her alone. Among the others.

            1) Brides of Dracula
            7) City of the Dead
            11) Whoever Slew Auntie Roo?
            14) The Witches
            16) The Beyond
            18) Clash of the Titans (remake)
            20) Night of the Living Dead
            22) Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf

            10 and 15 look familiar but I can’t pull the trigger. Actually, if I got all these right this is probably my best quiz yet (I’m no Pete!). I’m hoping to start my quizzes up again next month, but that will depend on whether or not I can learn these new protocols. I may just decide to pack it in.
