You want me to hold the chicken?

OK, I surrender. Everyone likes thinking about movies more than about Trump or Israel or even biblioclasm.

Here’s a pop quiz. Random scenes, some iconic, some not, from random movies. Can you name the movie and the principal actors in the scene? No cheating with that Google thingy you kids are always playing with, either. They’re mostly pretty easy, especially for people who have been around a few years, so have fun.

Get 15 out of 20 right and you win a gold star from Stewie. Get them all and you receive a PhD from Trump University.

  1. No one got #8, which is Arabesque, a fun thriller with Gregory Peck and Sophia Loren. Whose side is she on?
    That’s a very young Michael Moriarty in Bang the Drum Slowly. So sad.
    The kid in 1000 Clowns is Barry Gordon.
    The actors in Bicycle thief are not professionals (!), so no points taken off there.

    1. Wow! Great job. You get the gold star and a Masters from Trump. U. Just missed the PhD by a hair, but the thesis committee is deliberating. Gonna have to step up my game to fool the smartest girl in class! Kalifornia is right BTW, but it’s Brad Pitt’s movie, all the way.

      1. Thanks, SG! You could do an entire blog on movies. One way to avoid the miserable sadness that Ms USA is experiencing. Latest: the Kushner family is moving into a house formerly owned by a Putin buddy. Gag. Glad Lincoln and my father aren’t alive.
