Film Quizzes: B/W Adaptations from Plays

As I’ve done a film quiz based on short stories, reviewed a film based on a French play and recently bought a book of August Strindburg, it’s about time I did a quiz based on films that were first seen on stage. There are so many great plays into impressive films that I’ve divided them into two groups. See how many of the black and white films below you can get, with the colour ones coming up soon.

    • I want them to change the last line. The only thing wrong with the film. Stalag 17 really is a wonderful film if you get the chance. And last but not least, great score 🙂

  1. I knew 12 Angry Men and that’s it!!!! hahaha

    I was trying to get which one would be Streetcar but I guessed the second image, not the third to last. Good stuff Alex

  2. 5/6 for4 me. Missed His girl Friday.
    Stalag 17 and 12 Angry Men are two of my favorite movies!!
    Ive never seen Streetcar but was able to recognize it anyway

    • I watched Intolerable Cruelty. Very entertaining film but it shows how hard it is to get a screwball comedy to perfection. I salute you for the two films you highlight 🙂
