Authors aren’t always overlooked on the big screen. I’ve pictured 10 actors who have portrayed famous writers on the big screen and I’ve also give the year the movies came out so you have some frame of reference (but not to help you cheat :)) Tell me the author being portrayed for 5 points and/or the name of the movie for another 5. You have until noon Friday to submit your answers. Same prize as last time.
No cheating. No Googling, researching, or looking at other commenter answers. Yes, we’re going by the honor system Your first answers will be the only ones accepted. Play every week or just one time, you are always welcome It only takes once to be eligible for a prize.
