Writers in Film Quiz

There are many movies that have writers as main characters.  Let’s see if you can figure them out.  Each movie title is worth 10 points and you have until Thursday night to submit your answers. I hide your answers until then.

Here are the rules… 1. Open to everyone.  Play once or every week, that’s okay.  I’m happy to have you here today.

2. No cheating.  No googling, other internet searches or looking at other commenter answers.  Yes, we’re going by the honor system

3. Your first answers will be the only ones accepted.
