THE Film quiz (with prize)!

Okay, had enough of music? It’s time for the films:

Them there rules:

  • No googling: it’s much more fun if you win fairly.
  • There are three (or more) numbers in brackets after the quotes. The first is the points for the film, the second, the actor(s)/actress(es) and the next the name of their character(s).
  • The quiz will run until next Friday (30th March) or until all films have been guessed.
  • Guess as many times as you want. First correct answer gets the point(s)
  • Bonus point can be gained for each film of you tell me a piece of trivia I didn’t previously know (without searching on the net for it).

  • Have fun!
