Pedalers: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, Oct. 2021 Edition, Vol. 400.6


    In deference to the assertions of those who derive from great glee from splashing rain puddles onto the sidewalk strolling CSR editorial staff as they zoom by in their monster SUVs (decorated with a vast assortment of environmental bumper stickers meant to induce a finger wagging Green consciousness onto those who can’t quite read them as they’re wiping the highway drain residue out of their eyes), that the world will end tomorrow (if the apocalypse begins in Martha’s Vineyard, then we might have irrefutable proof that, indeed, there is a God) unless we heed their wolfish howls and surrender to their strategy of redressing supposed environmental abuses by burning through as muchbikesgif cash as possible (it’s a science thing that we anti-ozone taxpayers wouldn’t understand because we’re not empowered female Nobel laureates like AOC or Jerry Nadler), we present this month’s edition of America’s most bawdy game of intellectual flummery, the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you, always, by the makers of America’s favorite breakfast candy, SKITTLES, the last of the world’s edible confections not purloined by mainland China for use as an aphrodisiac. In this edition we present cinematic representations of an antiquated mode of self-propulsion-  the bike   -heretofore condemned by the Biden Administration as injurious to the White House’s continued pleading with OPEC for the makings of more combustible fuel (as explained by WH memorandum: “The reliance on non-consumptive vehicular transport would put an unjust, and frankly unAmerican, burden on the investable income of many of Congress’s most reliable contributors of kickbacks, a symbiotic shortfall which would prove detrimental to continued Congressional stagnation but is also probably Islamophobic, xenophobic and racist, and we’re not Trump!”) or impractical under AOC’s Green New Deal which discourages any mode of propulsion unencumbered by either windmill or solar panel. However, the following twenty five images are taken from films showcasing the use of pedaled conveyance in the years before America has capitulated to the sweet tranquilizers of insanity and stupidity. Your task is to mask up and identify all twenty five films (without the use of offensive pronouns, if you please) and convey your findings to our now suitably dry staff for evaluation. The first to correctly identify all twenty five films (no second place participation trophies here, Chuckles) will receive the all-powerful CSR Culture Shock Award, still protected by the Second Amendment, though non-transferable for cash or Ponzi scheme bond issues. 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.
