Quiz the one hundred-and-twenty-sixth: Cover story (Part one)

Could it be that magazines will soon go the way of all things print, consigned to the dustbin of history and leaving us to play with our cell phones while sitting in waiting rooms? If so, my boxes of old movie magazines may finally be worth something. But, alas, there may not be many more quizzes like this week’s incredibly easy offering.  So enjoy this walk in the park, film fans!

        Scores can only be tabulated once comments have finished being screened by our moderators. This may take several days. We appreciate your patience.

    Well, it’s impossible for me to win, right? That’s disappointing. I think you should just keep Dix’s comments in moderation till the end of the day to give others a chance. That’d be funny.

      All comments are still being moderated!
      Plus, this quiz isn’t finished. So you could easily get one of the pictures that was too hard for him . . .

        If I said then he’d know, and it’s better that he remain in darkness. He’s got four wrong though, and there’s four he passed on. Basically he just picked all the low-hanging fruit.

      2. Over-The-Shoulder

        You’re no help. Sigh. It’s too late for me to think. Remind me tomorrow morning and I’ll have a go at the tough ones, but I’m not sure I’ll get many.

        Chandler was actually doing these quizzes long before I started, and he’s always had a rule that he doesn’t give hints. He doesn’t even say what ones you get right or wrong. And I think that’s a good rule. It leaves things more open down the line. So if all of someone’s guesses are right I say so, but if some are wrong I don’t like to say which ones are wrong. Suffice it to say that Eddie slipped up a few times.

        Chandler? As in, Chandler Bing? I thought it was Ross who did the quizzes. Keep up, old man. We can’t have you lagging behind.

        You are an incredibly difficult quiz master. I should just host my own quiz and make it really difficult for you. Yeah, how’d you like that? Just keep all your comments in moderation or something. Ok, I’ll try to have a go. Give me a couple of hours…

        Well, I wasn’t expecting you to know it. I was just pointing it out.
        I leave answers on Chandler’s quizzes and he does on mine so I’m sure he knows. Think it’s a pretty general idea though.

      6. Over-The-Shoulder

        I never seen Chandler here before. Is he good? Has he ever beaten Dix?

        Do you recommend his blog? Should I check him out? Or are you scared I’m going to smash you in his quizzes?

        He’s a really good writer, and drops in occasionally to do some of the quizzes. On his quizzes there’s a guy named Pete who usually cleans up.
