Film Quizzes – Robert de Niro

With de Niro’s 72nd birthday yesterday, I did a celebratory reblog of one of my first ever features. But one post was never going to be enough for such a film icon, so I’ve added an extra-sized quiz in tribute.

Alex Raphael

Quite simply, an acting institution. Robert de Niro has been in been in some of the world’s most iconic films, worked with directing greats and uttered some of cinemas most memorable lines. In a remarkable career spanning over 50 years (and counting), we take a closer look at eight of his best films. Scary to think of some of the ones we left out.


Raging Bull

Going right back to 1931’s The Champ, Hollywood has always loved the skilful yet brutal dichotomy of boxing, so it takes something pretty damn special to stand out from the others.
