    Wow good quiz... Sure this didn't belong in the 'worst artwork' thread...

    1. Two Weeks with Love, Jane Powell

    I'll see if I can find the others later if no one else does...



    That second mouse in the bowl of cream we call life...

    3. Estelita Rodriguez - Tropical Heatwave
  • HONDOHONDO Member Posts: 9,249 ✭✭✭✭✭✭ Le Grande Collector

    Excellent start.

    Jane Powell in Two Weeks With Love is correct  for image one  as is  Estelita Rodriguez in Tropical Heat Wave, who was sometimes as in this film billed solely as Estilita from image two.

    After a flying start we have hit a brick wall. A clue is the featured actress along with her male co-star in the film had a number 3 hit in the Billboard charts in 1951.

    Sorry the clue given above was for the first film not the third so one should be able to work out the answer now.

    Correct but John has already beat you to it but I know you knew if and didn't realise the question hadn't been answered earlier. 

    The remaining number two image is of Debbie Reynolds in The Affairs Of Dobie Gillis.

    It has now been over four years that this quiz has been just sitting here in the forum in a dormant stage. I  thought I would revive this quiz that covers a popular genre and give it another run. 

    Two of the images are from very well known modern musical films, but the other two, well... good luck.

    #7 I immediately recognized as the cover of The Great Ziegfeld program book (surely because I have auctioned 15 of them, and I am the one who does the condition description on program books!).

    #4 I just remember from the movie I saw in the theater, Chicago. Someday I should watch Roxie Hart, with Ginger Rogers, based on the same story.

    All correct, with your memories working very well.

    # 4. Chicago ( 2002 ). Loved this movie.
    # 5. La La Land ( 2016 ). Should have officially won the Best Picture Oscar.
    # 6. King Of Jazz ( 1930 ) . Looks interesting.
    # 7. The Great Ziegfeld ( 1936 ). Viewed the movie many moons ago when screened in an early morning television broadcast timeslot. I don't remember that it was a great movie, but interestingly nevertheless. The film runs only a short 75 minutes which wasn't the norm for major studio releases in 1942.

    Wow, been offline three days and missed this completely.  So embarrassed as I am supposed to be the musicals nut.

    You should check out the new restoration of King Of Jazz. Criterion have released it on BluRay and it's a stunning restoration (mostly) from the original two colour technicolor negative.

    Here's another shot of Jacques Cartier from the Rhapsody In Blue sequence.



    And a clip here -

    Great clip of King Of Jazz. Thanks for sharing.



    I like this impressive German ''A1'' film poster.

    I'm going to take a shot at posting some.  I expect these first ones will be easy, but hopefully I get better.  All images are scanned from my collection. and of well known musicals  Be gentle.

    I will answer this one. JNJ3 is Stage Door Canteen ( 1943 ).

    Both correct.  Figured Hondo would be the one to get JNJ3.  Don't see many instances where Harpo Marx appears alone.

    I knew Easter Parade as well but Ves beat me to the punch. The remaining two unanswered ones have me stumped though as to what they possibly could be.

    Both are musicals based on Broadway plays from the 60s and 70s.

    O.k. then JNJ4 is surely Man Of La Mancha ( 1972 ).

    OK, let's try the full image (less title).  The actual lead is shown toward the right

    JNJ2 is a complete mystery to me.  Even after being given the Broadway connection clue and the extended image absolutely nothing, so it is with some reluctance I will have to give up trying to fathom this one out.

    Would that be Gypsy with Rosalind Russell?
  • jayn_jjayn_j Member, Singin Dancing Fool, Lobby Master Posts: 807 ✭✭✭ Daybiller
    That's it.
    Gypsy (1962) Rosalind Russel, Karl Maldin and Natalie Wood

    Good job, and I obviously made it too hard here.  I'll work on it for next time.

    Great selection Jay and I am looking forward to your next entries, and I do like a strong challenge. Before this happen to take place though, here are three more images that I have had lined up to present here for some time now. A mixed bag of musical styles presented here.

    8 ( top ) ,  9 ( middle ) and 10 ( just above ).

    CORRECTION.

    I don't know what happened here  but the following comment that I included  above in my # 7 validation  was referring to Roxie Hart and not The Great Ziegfeld. Sorry about that.

    ''Viewed the movie many moons ago when screened in an early morning television broadcast timeslot. I don't remember that it was a great movie, but interestingly nevertheless. The film runs only a short 75 minutes which wasn't the norm for major studio releases in 1942.''

    I have also noticed that the original numbering of the four images when first presented is now out of whack with the images for some reason ot another.
