Film Quizzes: #StevenSpielberg

After seeing the documentary Spielberg, based on the legendary Ohio director, it got me thinking about the huge array of work Steven Spielberg has directed. In one of my early posts I created a quiz based on films he’s been involved in away from the camera, but he’s certainly earned a more full-scale celebration.  How many do you recognise?

Film Quizzes: World War 2 Films

After seeing the superb Dunkirk last week, it got me thinking about what other depictions there had been of World War 2. There are some pretty famous ones I’ve left out, which you’re more than welcome to mention in the comments section. I wanted a wide range  that covered different aspects of the war. Fighting on the ground, being under attack under water, aerial warfare, resistance fighters and the struggle within concentration camps among them. See how many you can get. A bonus point if you can guess my favourite among them.
