When Your Fingers Did the Walking: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, March 2022 Edition, Vol. 411
In a world in desperate need of all of the humor one can muster, it never fails to entertain to seek out a coffee shop clique of young seekers (formerly known as “suckers” in carnival parlance) of advanced academics and place a dial telephone in the center of their table, asking for a demonstration as to its use. (The ensuing perplexity is as predictably assured as that of death, taxes and Joe Biden coughing phlegm into his hands.) With that in mind, we now announce the unnecessary yet equally predictable presentation of yet another edition of America’s favorite monthly source of brain seizures, the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you, as always, by those diligent folks behind the duty-free distribution of SKITTLES, America’s favorite combination breakfast candy and antacid. In this edition we take a nostalgic look at the telephone used for purposes other than taking self-portraits or filing every detail of your personal financial information for the purpose of feigning alarm when it is appropriated by a New Jersey basement dwelling prepubescent hacker with a sweet tooth for online subscriptions to German fetish sites. The following twenty- five images represent a fraction of the cinema’s depictions of the classical use of Alexander Graham Bell’s gizmo for moderately priced chitchat without the need for two tin cans and a long string. Your task is to identify the films from which all twenty-five images are sourced and tell us of your suspicions. The first to correctly identify all of the images will receive the treasured CSR Culture Shock Award, the first recorded honorarium useful as both a source of bragging rights and a topical dandruff medication. Good luck.
