NEW MOVIE QUIZ - BACK TO BASICS

PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR ANSWERS IN A COMMENT, OR YOU WILL RUIN THE QUIZ FOR EVERYONE ELSE.     POST THEM IN A PRIVATE NOTE TO ME, BUZZ OF THE ORIENT, AND I WILL REPLY WITH YOUR SCORE AND THE CORRECT ANSWERS.

Don't forget that I am on the other side of the world (of most of you) and I could be asleep when you send your answers, so be patient - I will get to your PN as soon as I can.

The two-picture clue system worked okay, so here we go again.  Same as previously, the symbols or pictures represent either the title of a movie or an important item or aspect of it or is in some way representative of it.  None of the image clues are actual screen shots from the movie films and I try to use clues that do not make it easy to do a web search, and since this is a test of your movie memory, web searching is cheating anyway.  Some of the questions are about relatively well known movies, but some classics and lesser known ones are included.  A few of the movies may be repeats - ones I've used before, but with different clues.   So give it a try, have a WHALE of a time and NAME THESE MOVIES.

Please number your answers the same as the images.

Some are easy, some are hard, some are well known, and some are not, but give it a try anyway - everyone who does says it's fun.

I'm somewhat disappointed that only 3 members have provided their answers, as I had two days ago personally notified 12 members who had participated on previous quizzes, and the questions are not impossible, as 17 of the 20 movies have already been correctly identified (some by one or another of those who tried).

Buzz I looked at the clues and not much of it was ringing a bell. 

I think I know 9 or 10 of them.    I will fill it out in a while.

It's getting harder to find movies I know and where clues are possible that are not too difficult or too easy with each quiz I prepare, so I have to reach a little farther every time or just keep repeating the same movies with different clues..

This quiz is not impossible - only one question has evaded being answered at this point.

I dug pretty deep for some of them, but most of those had more recent remakes with the same name anyway.  Give it a try, Kathleen, you can't win them all, but you know it's still fun to try.
