    # 19 & # 20. Both images are from the same British film. Fact and fiction appear here. Anyone?



    # 21. From an obscure Bela Lugosi f



    Sorry I knew these two films would be hard but decided to include them anyway on the off chance someone could answer them. As it appears no one knows them the answers are as follows.



    19 & 20 are from Eyewitness ( 1956 ). Interestingly both scenes are outside the Coronet Theatre. The first image shows advertising above the entrance of a made up film with a fictitious title and stars names, and the second image has the film being advertised as the real life film  The Rose Tattoo ( 1955 ).




    # 21 answer is The Death Kiss ( 1932 ) featuring Adrienne Ames in the image I  had posted.

    #'s 22 & 23 appear to be harder than I thought they would be, so clues are that the releasing years of the films were 1985 and 2009.

    I tried that.  I think many of us realized the Jeep picture was the key.  I was doing a search for '2 WACs in Jeep movie image', but thought it was another woman in back.  I also picked the wrong branch of the service.

    Correct. Good work Jay as this film isn't a very well known film.

    Another clue for # 23 now is that this film is fantasy.

    #23 - Brazil?  Cant find the image, but several similar ones.

    I initially thought the guy was Robin Williams and was leaning toward One Hour Photo, but the year was all wrong.

    Sorry but not Brazil. Same year but not the correct film title. Let me say that you do know the answer Jay. A final clue then.

    OK, Purple Rose of Cairo.  I rejected it earlier, silly me.

    # 23. The Purple Rose Of Cairo ( 1985 ) is correct. One of Woody Allen's favourite films that he has made.

    For Pancho to possibly answer or anyone else who may recognize this scene taken from a poster publicizing a very well known film ?

    #25: The Tingler (1959).  I was 10 and all my friends were all over how edgy this one was.  My folks wouldn't let me go see it.

    Correct Jay. A very much censored version of the film was originally screened in Australia. No percepto gimmick used here in Australia. At a screening of the film at a cinema in Australia two middle aged women were talking about the film being screened as a support to the G rated main attraction film Surprise Package, that starred Yul Brynner and Mitzi Gaynor. They were upset that a film such as The Tinger would appear on the same programme.

    Clue for unsolved # 24 is that the pictured man should have stayed away from attending the cinema,

    Clue for # 26 is that it was a follow up to a successful film.

    Final clue for #24 is Manhattan Melodrama .

    Final clue for #26 is that it features the last screen appearance of a screen legend.

    # 24. Unbelievably no one answered this one with clues practically supplying the answer. Dillinger ( 1945 ) is the answer. Manhattan Melodrama was the film John Dillinger attended before he was killed by federal agents.

    # 26. The answer which was harder is Creepshow 2. Dorothy Lamour's last screen appearance.

     29

    Another recent film that shouldn't present a problem, unless you haven't seen the movie of course.

     30

    A film from this decade.

    # 29 is indeed The Shape Of water. Good question Jay and I thought it odd that there wasn't any patrons in the cinema. In another part of the film when water leaks through the ceiling and falls on theatre patrons during a screening there appeared from memory to only be a handful of them in the cinema,



    Clue for remaining unanswered # 30.
    Lawrence
  • HONDOHONDO Member, Wizard of Aus Posters Posts: 8,201 ✭✭✭✭✭ Elite Collector

     31 32

    One well known and one lesser known film to ponder, and let's not forget # 30.
