Do you actually think that sort of blatant sarcasm is going to play well? 

To me, the format of the quizzes is played out. It was fun at first , but after so many I just lost interest. Another type of movie quiz I might take part in.

As in Rhett Butler's final words to Scarlett.....

John, you bitched about damn near every quiz I produced that you played, and have started bitching about the quizzes that you don't play.  Yes, I was sarcastic, and frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.

Yet, you continue to comment on quizzes that you've "lost interest" in doing. Strange!

Will you PLEASE stop doing that!!!!  Did you not read this in the introduction above?

you mentioned her name in the 2nd question, einstein, and my comment has nothing to do with the quiz, but only my desire to play hide the salami with her. lighten up and feel free to take me off the PN list for future contests.

On a previous quiz you were even worse at exposing an actual answer with a quotation from the movie.  I warned you then to stop doing that and now you AGAIN ignored my request as if to say "Fuck you, I'll pay no attention to your rules and fuck up your quizzes if I feel like it"..  You don't have to ask me to remove your name from my notifications list - it's done.  Don't come back.  There are a lot of members here who enjoy doing these quizzes whom I'm sure don't appreciate your sabotage.

Buzz ... Ignore what I said in my PM. I found the new quiz (obviously!). This is a different format, so maybe it will attract more people.

Thank you again for taking time to create these [deleted]

This group, and the quizzes, are at least one of the few places on NT where all political sides come together.  Talking about "coming together", I just saw that the SOB who killed John Lennon was again refused parole.  Let him rot in prison and die there, IMO.

NOTICE:  It was pointed out to me that I made an error in number 12, because it was the COAT that the little girl was wearing, not the DRESS, that was a colour that contrasted with the B&W rest of the image.  However, fortunately my error did not mislead anyone to make a wrong answer.  I have now corrected the question.

The quiz has been up for 2 days, and although I expected a swarm of responses to this one only 5 have participated so far.  Even though not everybody got a perfect score, each question has been answered so nobody can say this quiz is too hard.

This quiz is now closed.  Ten members participated, and all of them are in the winners' circle.  Sharing the top spot of perfect answers with a 20 out of 20 score are Snuffy, Split Personality, Jasper 2529, Just Jim  NC TttH, and Perrie.  Tied for second place with scores of 19 each are Vic Eldred, Kathleen and Charger 383.   Ed-NavDoc is third with a score of 17 and Raven Wing gets Honourable Mention with a score of 14. Thanks for playing and I hope you all had fun - but the quiz that I'm posting momentarily, called The Really Tough Movie Quiz is going to be a much greater challenge, and the scores of those who try it are bound to be less.  Are you going to be too scared to see your names posted with low scores?   A low score will probably be the top winner.

Here are the answers for the quiz posted above..

1  True
2.  (c) Julia Roberts
3.  Fonda
4.  Rome
5.  False
6.  (b) yellow
7.  chariot
8.  World War 2
9.  False
10. (d) baseball
11. Rosebud
12. red
13. False
14. (b) Mexico
15. Falcon
16. E.T.
17. False
18. (d) Frodo
19. iceberg
20. a ham
