Round 10: The B*st*rd

October 10, 2011 in Movies, Quizzes

The title of this post is the name by which the quiz master at the Kelly’s monthly movie quiz always refers to the final round.  He’s clearly proud of it.  He must spend a lot of his week before the quiz going through Halliwell’s Film Guide, looking for the most obscure movie facts he can find.

Normally we do ‘ok’ in this round – by which I mean 6 points, or thereabouts. However, if you’ve read my post from last week, you won’t be surprised when I reveal that we scored a miserable 3 points this time out.  I’m going to include the whole round below, as a separate set of questions to let you have a go.

We had been joint-leaders at half-time on 35 points but, after that final round, we ended up third on 64 points.  That being said, we only lost by 3 points.  Everyone else must also have found the final round to be a bit of a b*st*rd…

The final round:

  1. Who played the part of the vampire Jerry Dandridge in the original Fright Night?
  2. Who has, in his career, been killed on-screen by a terminator, a predator and an alien?
  3. Who played the part of the “last American hero” in the 1971 film Vanishing Point?
  4. What cover company does James Bond and his fellow 00 agents purport to work for?
  5. What phrase stops the robot Gort in the 1951 film The Day The Earth Stood Still?
  6. What was the name of the superhero alter-ego of Dom DeLuise’s character in Cannonball Run?
  7. Peter O’Toole was nominated for an Academy Award for which 1980 film?
  8. What film was directed by Wim Wenders, starred Mel Gibson and was written by Bono?
  9. The character of Lili von Shtupp in Blazing Saddles was based on which actress?
  10. What engraving is on the lighter George Smiley lost to a Russian agent in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy?

Some other questions:

  1. What was the name of the criminal gang in the 1991 film Point Break?
  2. What 1945 film featured the first ever scene of human actors interacting with animated characters?
  3. In what year does the film Super-8 take place? *
  4. On what date do the characters in One Day meet every year? *

Identify the film from its tagline:

  1. In Space, no-one can hear you scream.
  2. Eigth legs, two fangs and an attitude.
  3. Crime is a disease. Meet the cure.
  4. Neo-Tokyo is about to explode.
  5. Mischief. Mayhem. Soap.
  6. He was dead but he got better.
  7. Love means never having to say you’re sorry.
  8. Resistance is futile.
  9. Trust me.
  10. He spies, he flies, he death-defies.

Picture round (five actors, five films):

The quiz also included the usual film score extracts and movie posters with the titles removed.  However, I didn’t get around to recreating those.  Sorry.

Answers to all that of the above though, will follow tomorrow.

* We got these but I like them.
