15 Movie Questions

Taking the baton from Tim, Annie and Rol, here are my choices. Feel free to do your own!

1. Movie you love with a passion.

Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train.

2. Movie you vow to never watch.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind or any of that new American indie bollocks.

3. Movie that literally left you speechless.

The Vanishing (1988). Speechless and breathless.

4. Movie you always recommend.

Atlantic City.

5. Actor/actress you always watch, no matter how crappy the movie.

Bette Davis.

6. Actor/actress you don’t get the appeal for.

Audrey Hepburn.

7. Actor/actress, living or dead, you’d love to meet.

Groucho Marx, though I'd be shit scared.

8. Sexiest actor/actress you’ve seen. (Picture required!)

Irene Jacob.

9. Dream cast.

The Once Upon a Time in America cast.

10. Favorite actor pairing.

Was going to say Michael Redgrave and dummy in Dead of Night but one of them isn't made of flesh and blood. So, Burt Lancaster and Susan Sarandon in Atlantic City.

11. Favorite movie setting.

12. Favorite decade for movies.


13. Chick flick or action movie?

A specific action movie: Clouzot's The Wages of Fear.

14. Hero, villain or anti-hero?


15. Black and white or color?

Colour. Especially the brilliant colours of the Powell/Pressburger films in the 40s.


  1. You have a friend in forties films here.

    AND you've just made me want to see Atlantic City again.

  2. My favourite line is when Burt says "I'm a lover!"

  3. Snap with no.5! I have her biography to read now.

  4. She was good, wasn't she?

  5. One of my favourites was 'Dark Victory'... and of course 'Now Voyager'.
    I got hooked watching the Sunday Matinees on BBC1... years and years ago.

  6. Sunday's best for matinees. Never understood the Wednesday matinee thing.

  7. Great post... may I steal it.
    I am in THE VANISHING (USA version). I still get checks.
