That's Vincent Price on the ladder in the first image. He's everywhere!

Certainly, current B&W films make a short list.

That reminds me of playing Trivial Pursuit years ago. One of the players whined, "I'd be doing a hell of a lot better if you asked me questions I knew." He was serious when he said it.

I was going to use the little girl with the ice cream, but thought that might be too recognizable because of what happens next: shot in the chest, big blood splatter. I don't suppose it could be made today; times change.

For what it's worth, Carpenter said she really enjoyed doing it.

Hmm...long shot here, but it looks to me like Anthony Hopkins in Titus, based on Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus.

Correct! Give the man a point!

And a tip o' the hat to Bill McClain, for starting this thread and sticking with it for 100 pages (and who knew the answer, but was gentleman enough to let another have a chance)

Excellent! I picked up a British blu-ray of this and The Four Musketeers - such a great cast!

For the weekend...

These images are from one film, selected and arranged randomly. The seven image versions all seemed too easy this time, so I've increased it to nine.

We number them from top to bottom: (1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9).

Give the correct chronological ordering.



Answer:

The forum software is sometimes screwy in the way it sizes image attachments. Here is the original hosted off-site. I'll put it in a spoiler because it is a biggish image:
