Family Ties: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, Nov. 2020 Edition, Vol. 2.4

familyties0Family Ties: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, Nov. 2020 Edition, Vol. 2.4

    Recently it was reported that America’s most prominent Chicken Little,  Dr, Anthony Fauci was informed by his family that due to the conditions of the pandemic, they would not be traveling to join him for this year’s Thanksgiving festivities. Predictably, within hours, Fauci announced a warning to the nation that any gathering of family around a table featuring turkey, giblet gravy and yams was tantamount to a death wish. Following such an obsessively fixated trail of imposing public policy from the jaws of private frustration, one hopes that the day never comes where the good doctor runs outfamilytiesgif of toothpaste, lest he devise a national mandate that everyone’s teeth be extracted for the sake of public health. So with these familial restrictions for the holidays in mind (which thankfully for the Clinton household is not inclusive of escorts, strippers and mistresses), we defy the laws of common insensibility and present this month’s edition of America’s favorite figurative mask against the literal intrusion of intellectual pandemonium, the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you, as always, by the New England distributors of SKITTLES, America’s favorite breakfast candy. In this edition we present a celebration of that which has been the direct source of patients subject to entire lifetimes of billable pyshotherapy session hours: the family. Your task is to identify the twenty five films from which the following images have been sourced and to relay that information directly (answers delivered through Congressional whistleblowers will be disqualified) to the offices of CSR (that’s right here, lest this is all be too obscure). The first to complete this task with the correct information will receive the handcrafted and water resistant CSR Culture Shock Award, a thing of beauty and a joy forever. 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 am rather preoccupied with some family issues right now, and after looking down your selection, I am far from confident. Still, here goes.
    25) Known in the UK as The Haunted and the Hunted. A Roger Corman film.
    24) Breaking Away.
    23) Little Women. The remake with Winona. I prefer the first one.
    22) Nope.
    21) La Buche.
    20) Panic In Year Zero.
    19) Nope.
    18) Holiday. Great cast.
    17) A Happy Event. French film.
    16) Nope.
    15) Used People. Cathy Bates.
    14) Nope.
    13) Sounder. 70s film.
    12) Fiddler On The Roof.
    11) The Lion In Winter.
    10) Le Petit Nicholas. French film.
    09) Godzilla.
    08) The Russians Are coming.
    07) Nope. Angela Lansbury, but I don’t know it.
    06) The Big Country.
    05) Rocco And His Brothers. A great Alain Delon film.
    04) Belissima. I love Anna Magnani.
    03) National Velvet. A young Liz gave it away.
    02) It’s a ‘Blondie’ film. But which one? Half nope.
    01) Please Don’t Eat The daises. Niven and Day.

    So, five Nopes, and a ‘Blondie’ half. Not great, but as I said, I have a lot going on at the moment.
    Best wishes, J. Biden

    Looks like a whole bunch of classic films that I should know but that I can’t place. Which makes it all the stranger that one of the only ones I did twig to was 25, which I think is Dementia 13. 11 is the Lion in Winter. I think 20 is that thing with Ray Milland with his family surviving the Bomb. 23 might be Little Women because that looks like Winona. Sorry, I’m no Pete.

    Hope you got out to vote!

    • I credit you with 5 out of 5 good buddy. (Sorry, I lapsed into a CB radio flashback for a moment.) A funny thing about Pete, I usually include one or two photos which I consider giveaways yet those are the ones he gets stumped on. (That is, when he gets stumped.) Hope you are doing well, and yes, I voted today (and often) so you may blame or congratulate me on any oddball directions the future may bring.
