MOVIE QUIZ - GREGORY PECK FILMS

GregoryPeck_Car_16x20.jpg

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.

PLEASE, PLEASE, READ WHAT IS BELOW IN ORDER TO GET A BETTER SCORE.  I HAVE DECIDED TO BE MUCH MORE LENIENT IN MY SCORING AND HAVE DONE AWAY WITH MANY OF THE RULES. .

For this quiz, besides the two image clues, the third clue is that the movie MUST be one in which Gregory Peck acted, and it could be any genre.  Since Peck acted in no more than around 70 movies this should be an easy quiz to zero in on the answers.  None of the movies are TOO old.  I have only seen half of these movies myself, so for a lot of them just identifying the clue images should give you a good idea what the movie is, but as always, some clues are of an item or scenario that is a primary object in or otherwise indicative of or important to the plot  and you will probably have to have seen the movie to identify it. Some of the movies were included in previous quizzes, but even if so I tried not to use the same image clues, and as usual I don't think any of the image clues are actual screen shots from the movies.  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 using web programs that identify movies from naming the clues is cheating, but once you think you know the answer I recommend that you check to make sure it is correct.  Participants keep losing points because they fail to do that.

THE RULES  

I am being much more lenient and you will not lose score for not capitalizing or using proper punctuation or adding an extraneous or leaving off a "the" or "A", but I may have to make a decision between you're just naming what the clues are and the actual movie name. Just identifying the images does not necessarily mean that you know the name of the movie, which is why I recommend that you check to make sure the name is correct, because the images may only be a CLUE to the ACTUAL name of the movie. Remakes of original movies with the same name will be acceptable.  As well, I previously used clues of a star and a war scene and any Star Wars movie was correct, and likewise for Robin Hood where my clues were a golden arrow and an image of King Richard the Lion Hearted, in which case any Robin Hood movie was okay.  If you name movies that I feel the clues identify as well or better than the ones I used, I have been accepting them as good answers as well, although in the case of a specific actor quiz like this one I don't think that will happen.  TV programs and TV series such as West Wing are not answers, but I will accept TV movies like QB VII (which is an adaptation of a novel) or some miniseries if they are an adaptation of a novel that is too long for one showing and are spread out, like the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice.  

There are some hard ones to guess, and also some very easy ones, so give it a try and NAME THESE MOVIES.

Please number your answers the same as the images.

I chose that particular picture of Gregory Peck for under the title because I LOVE that Bentley he's leaning on.

Since I no longer have access to IMDb, which I need to run genre quizzes, I think I'll try doing quizzes restricted to certain actors/actresses like this one for a while.  Let's see how this one works out.

There are changes in the introduction because of this new quiz method, so please read the introduction info and the rules, then, as always, please remember...

PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR ANSWERS HERE 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.

Did you mean you knew 5 of the movies so far, or is it a reply to my comment just before yours because in fact at this point in time 5 members have sent in their answers.  It should be encouraging for all to know that the lowest score among them was 14 and 70% is nothing to sneeze at.

No serious harm done, but next time I would appreciate it if you would read the large font bolded warning I post in two colours on the top of the quiz and in the first comment.  You're not the first person who has failed to realize that they could be spoiling the quiz for everyone else, and, unfortunately I don't believe will be the last.

Just sent you a PM.   Do not think quiz was affected or that anything improper was intended, just did not want comments that might give something away,

The movie quizzes are fun

Thank you, Charger, for your quick action when the postings occurred, and for your information.  Now that I know what was posted I can say that no answers for the quiz were exposed, although it reduced the total of Peck's work from which choices were to be made.  What happened will require me to expand the warning to include the posting of any movie names, alternative clues or hints, although I have no way to make anyone read it except to post it in flashing neon lights and I wonder if even that will work.

Fun Fact -  Gregory Peck was the model for the hunter in Bambi.....

Ok, ok.. I made that up.  Just trying to keep this on the front-page so more people see it.  Come on in guys,  the quiz is fun...

I just saw that - a real loss as far as I'm concerned and to many MANY others.  I intend to post an article about him.  He did not act in enough movies for a quiz.  However I do intend to combine two famous actors for my next quiz - Audrey Hepburn and Paul Newman. I'll give this concept one more try with those two, but no more if not many try it, since only 7 members have sent their answers for this Gregory Peck one.

You sure did.  Now we are eight. 

(In the original The Magnificent Seven, when Chico (Horst Buchaltz), standing up in the village church steeple, screamed at the timid hiding villagers that they were chickens, and asking what kind of welcome were they giving to "my compadres and I", Chris (Yul Brynner) said "Now we are seven."

The week is up, and so this quiz is now closed.  Nine members played and five got perfect 20 out of 20 scores, which tells me that either participants are becoming movie experts or I'm making the quizzes too easy.  Next one may be a little harder.  The five winners, in the order in which they submitted their answers are Veronica, Kathleen, Split Personality, Charger 383 and Nowhere Man.  In second place with 19 is Perrie, and Snuffy came in third with 18.  Honourable Mention goes to Vic Eldred with 15.  The only one who played that I didn't mention was Raven Wing who just missed being in the winners' circle by one point, having achieved a score of 14.  Thanks to all who played, hope you all had fun.

Here are the answers:

1.  Arabesque - a man in Arab dress & hieroglyphics (Peck's character was an expert in them)
2.  Twelve O'clock High - a clock showing 12 o'clock & WW2 bombers
3.  Moby Dick - a vintage whaling ship & a sailor with a peg leg
4.  Cape Fear - a (geographical) cape & a scared person
5.  Duel in the Sun - image depicting the Spielberg movie Duel & the sun
6.  Roman Holiday - a man typing (a journalist?) & a princess
7.  The Snows of Kilimanjaro - a snow scene & the actual Mt. Kilimanjaro
8.  Other People's Money - a wire and cable factory & getting a person's money
9.  The Scarlet and the Black - Gone With the Wind screen shot of Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh) wearing a scarlet dress & a black colour
10. The Sea Wolves - image of the sea & wolves
11. The Boys From Brazil - boys & Brazil nuts
12. I Walk the Line - man walking a tightrope line & a moonshine still
13. Mackenna's Gold - Apache Indians & gold nuggets
14. Marooned - person getting oxygen & an untethered astronaut in space (not sure if that might be a screen shot from the movie)
15. The Guns of Navarone - 2 cannons & an armada of warships
16. On the Beach - inside a submarine & a beach
17. Pork Chop Hill - a pork chop & a hill
18. Captain Horatio Hornblower - a sea captain's hat & a person blowing a horn
19. Yellow Sky - a yellow sky & a ghost town  (the first clue is all anyone needs)
20. To Kill a Mockingbird - a courtroom and a finch (as in Atticus Finch )

The next quiz is already posted, it is on the movies of Audrey Hepburn who acted in around 40 movies and those of Paul Newman who acted in around 60 movies.  Both are popular actors and I'm sure that most of those who regularly participate in the quizzes have seen many of their movies.  I have watched 18 of the 20 that I listed.  In case it gets pushed off the Front (Home) Page by the political hacks here is the link to it. -> ->

Had The Omen been one of the answers, due to the exposure of it in a comment here, I would have had to substitute a different movie for that question, deduct the score given to anyone who answered it and given them a chance to guess the substituted movie.

back in the mid 60's while on a family vacation, our ski boat was about 10 feet across the fuel dock from a ski boat with cary grant sitting in it. we were at the national recreation area where mackenna's gold was being filmed. at my age I had no clue who he was, but watched my mother become a totally awestruck mumbling wreck when she had recognized him. we didn't figure out what was wrong with her until later when she had regained her composure and told us.
