12 Angry Men

Juror #8: Let me ask you this: Do you really think the boy’d shout out a thing like that so the whole neighbourhood could hear him? I don’t think so – he’s much too bright for that.
Juror #10: Bright? He’s a common ignorant slob. He don’t even speak good English.
Juror #11: He *doesn’t* speak good English.

Henry Fonda, Ed Begley and George Voskovec in the superlative courtroom drama 12 Angry Men (1957). A truly astonishing film that has continued to inspire and provoke debate about the justice system and those chosen to help carry a verdict. I’ve included the film in my blog numerous times. As well as the recent Scorching Hot Weather Film Quiz, it’s also been in my Favourite Films and B/W Adaptions from Plays quizzes, as well as being on a guest film post.

Film Quizzes: Scorching Hot Weather

It was the hottest day of the year here yesterday, so after my recent Songs with Rain post, it was the right time to do something with a far sunnier theme. Have you seen them all? How many could you work out? Feel free to suggest your score, any favourites from the set or others you might think of.

Film Quizzes: My Favourite Films Part 1

I’ve done so many film quizzes since this early feature on New York, that I thought I’d continue the bloggerversary theme by putting films that just blew me away when I first saw them. Originally I thought about putting a mix of good and bad films, but I’ll save the shockers for another day. Whether they had me in hysterics, the edge of my seat, in deep thought or close to tears, these films really left an impression when I first saw them. Unsurprisingly I couldn’t fit them all into  one post, so look out for part 2 soon.

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.
