Back to the front: answers

June 20, 2011 in Movies, Quizzes

Here endeth the post created last Thursday, Back to the front.  My apologies for the delay in posting the answers.  I feel as if I am in the plot of a Richard Curtis movie as, within the last two months, I have been at four weddings.  Well, the fourth of those took place last weekend and it knocked me out of my ol’ routine.  Heck, even my little Friday podcast was only uploaded this morning.

I mentioned last week that this month’s Kelly’s movie quiz was won by ‘Things to do in John Denver when you’re dead’. And well done to them.  They almost pulled off a clean sweep of the available prizes but were beaten to the top spot in the ‘Best Team Name’ competition, as voted for by audience applause, by the (hopefully) inaccurately named ‘Three Men and a Massive Slut’.  Mind you, the team was made up of a 3:1 male-female ratio…

The poster included in the previous post was from the 1978 film, The Wild Geese.  It was the only one of the ‘Photoshopped Posters’ round that eluded us.  I must check it out sometime, it has quite the cast.

Answers:

  1. In Monty Python’s Life of Brian, what covert organisation does Brian Cohen join? A> People’s Front of Judea

The people at Kelly’s are doing a great job running this quiz and the crowd that turns up every month is testament to that.  At the end last week there was talk of another quiz in July but I haven’t got confirmation of that yet.  I do know that the same people are hosting a Simpsons quiz on Monday, June 27.

* I was wrong by the tiniest of margins here.  I was full sure his third name began with a P. 🙁
