Thanks for participating! 10 out 15 is not too bad!
The Oscars are next Sunday. I looked through the list of past Best Picture winners and chose my favorite 15. Let’s see if you can guess them by the quotes from the movies I chose.
Here’s how to play…Identify these Best Picture Oscar winning movies and leave a comment with the # and movie, and I’ll cross it off the list. No Googling, that’s cheating and no fun! To help you out these are in chronological order (the first one winning an Oscar in the 1930′ s and the last one winning in the 2000’s)
1. “What she needs is a guy that’d take a sock at her once a day, whether it’s coming to her or not. If you had half the brains you’re supposed to have, you’d have done it yourself long ago.” It Happened One Night (1934 winner)
2. “Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.” Casablanca (1943 winner), Mark
