    Correct. Rock Around The Clock from 1956. Johnny Johnston and Lisa Gaye appear together in the scene below. Lisa Gaye was the real life sister of Debra Paget.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            
  • X3 is Monolith Monsters.
  • Rick said:
    X3 is Monolith Monsters.

    Correct.The Monolith Monsters from 1957. Well worked out.

     


  • I have that lobby card so it was a rare easy one for me
  • The two remaining film images  will most likely prove to be a little difficult in finding answers for, so a little assistance follows. 

    Clue for X2 is the same genre as The Monolith Monsters. 

    Clue for X4 is that the film was based on well publicised true life events.

    Correct. Cell 2455, Death Row from 1955.

    Correct as well. The Land Unknown from 1957.

     

    It is certainly understandable that with some entries that will be presented here on this new and bound to be harder quiz, that clues on occasions will most likely be required. I am pleased that my clues, as a rule work when required in assisting in the quest to find answers.

  • That lot were too hard for me but keep them coming and I'll try harder.

  •  X5  X6  X7

    Back with this harder quiz that feature scenes from lesser known films. The images show three actresses that would have been certainly known by many moviegoers at the time of their film's being released. 
  • You young'uns can't realize what a stir the ending of the Mike Hammer book, I, the Jury, made on young men in the 1950s! The movie version (in X5) was not as good as the book, but did an admirable job.

    Correct, and well summed up.  I, The Jury from 1953.

     

    An original U.S.A. 3-D one sheet film poster, and an original 1953 first edition Signet  movie tie-in book.


  • X6 clues are once worked with Elvis, and has a connection also with X7.

    X7 clues are set in a big city and has also a connection with X6.
  • X6 looks like the weird glasses the woman on the poster wears in A Cold Wind in August, but I know nothing about the movie.

  • Bruce said:

    Correct and well figured out. A Cold Wind In August from 1961. The actress is Lola Albright an underrated actress who will likely be most remembered for her role in the television series Peter Gunn (1958 -1961 ). She also appeared in the Elvis Presley 1962 film Kid Galahad.

      

    The more exposed costume that was depicted on poster advertising above and a scene from Peter Gunn.  Singng was another tatent that she possessed.
  • HONDO said:

    Final clue is that the featured actress also appeared in a  Marilyn Monroe 1950's film.
  • I am pretty sure X7 is The Killer That Stalked New York. It wasn't your clues. I just remembered that odd unsexy black dress from the lobby cards.

    I hope I am not wrong!

    Your good memory has proven to be correct once more. The Killer That Stalked New York ( aka Frightened City ) from 1950..

    My initial clue given of being set in a big city of course referred to New York, and the X6 connection was that actress Lola Albright appeared in both films, The final clue of the featured actress who appeared in a Marilyn Monroe film was for Evelyn Keyes who had appeared in the cast of The Seven Year Itch ( 1955 ).

      X8
    I just love this one. Any idea what the film may be.?

  • As the image for X8 will most likely prove very difficult to identity, I am sure some help will not go astray then. I only included the image here due to the fact it reminded me of E.T.

    A clue is not yet a month.
  • X8 The 27th Day?  Google search and I know nothing of this film

    Correct. The 27th Day from 1957.

     X9
    A legendary actress from the golden years of Hollywood appears in the above image.

  • These are hard!


    Peter
  • These are hard!
    Sorry. Some clues to hopefully assist are that there is a legendary actress in a 1950's film noir. 

  •  X9 

    An extended image to work on that hopefully will assist.
  • edited May 2023
    A final clue for image X9  is that the sleeping male actor appeared in two Stanley Kubrick films.
