I sometimes worry that the pictures I include for these quizzes are too small. But I guess they’re big enough for people to work with. A related problem is when they’re too dark to make out, and there’s nothing I can do about that. In any event, you can always enlarge them. Or, as here, use a more traditional tool, which you’ll often see in the hands of classic film detectives.
1) Angels & Demons
2) The Mummy
4) The Mole People
5) Downfall (and many,many youtube parodies)
9) The White Sheik
12) The Deadly Mantis
15) On hour Photo
16) ? Leprechaun 2
18) The Prophecy
22) Blow Up
23) Valerian City of a 1000 planets.
24) Quatermass and The Pit.
25) Charlie Chan somewhere doing something.
Most right! Some interesting misses. I like the guess for 16 but it’s off by a bit. Well, a wide margin. 9 and 18 also miss. And you’ll have to be more exact to get 25! What with all the work I put into covering the CC canon . . .
9) Bay of Blood
I was kinda right with 18, The Omen, but it’s called The Prophesy in Spanish, same movie. (Stupid me I’ve seen it too!)
25) CC at Monte Carlo (had to work hard for that one!)
Arrrrrgh! How many Charlie Chan moves can you guys guess and still not get it? And even with a hint? That’s it, I’m going to cry now.
Dammit, I went searching for co-stars, was sure I had the right chap!
He is the right chap, probably. But I think Harold Huber was in about five CC movies. *sigh*
AH right. Well it’s one of those then.
Finally. Now you should have to go watch it!
I sort of figured you were getting a translated title there. But I can’t accept Spanish titles!
No veo por qué no, tuve que hacer uno japonés para su concurso hace un par de semanas. No me parece justo excluir el español.
Because it’s not a Spanish movie!!!
Don’t you mean “faneca”?
Estoy empezando a pensar que no eres español.
Tu pourrais avoir raison.
25. Charlie Chan’s European Vacation
He’s not even in Europe! And that’s all the clue you’re going to get.
Charlie Chan in Honolulu, at the Olympics, On Broadway, Goes Skiing, Murder Over New York
*sigh* Even my clue was of no assistance. My labours in covering the CC canon have been in vain.
I didn’t recognize even one.
As a movie aficionado I’m a complete failure! * cries into hanky *
Oh wait, that’s because I’M NOT a movie aficionado. Man, that was a close one!
25. Charlie Chan Looks Down His Monocle While Not In Europe
It’s not a monocle!
25. Charlie Chan Covers His Own Canon
I have a Canon. Good camera.
25. Charlie Chan’s Excellent Adventure?
Only in the Multiverse.
No, that is definitely Charlie Chan Faces the Music…..
You’re thinking of Charlie Chan Chapter 3: Parabellum.
Man, I get those two mixed up all the time!
Thanks for setting me straight….
#16 is the 1972 version of “Sleuth”.
Excellent Chandler! You’ve restored my (I know, misplaced) faith in humanity.
