Well...that's hard to say with absolute certainty. I update the score manually but automatically, which means more or less unconsciously, meaning it might not have happened. Is the current number off? I'll trust you if you've been keeping track this round.

The current tally for me (8) is right and accounts for everything. I just went back and counted my correct guesses. All is good.


EDIT: I was counting my City Lights guess as well. A little presumptive since North Sky only acknowledges my answer in the next post, but it was obviously correct. My total is 8, as it should be.

Lol. I just happened to hit the site as you posted it. And I just happened to actually recognize one for once without going "That looks familiar...what was the name again?"

Welcome to AVSForum.

Is that a movie title, and what challenge does it go with? I can't find it in the IMDB.

See this, if you haven't. Classic hardboiled detective story set among highschool drug dealers with priceless dialogue as if written by Hammett or Chandler. Played straight, with about as much humor as the originals. The ending is right from The Maltese Falcon.

You are kidding right? It's all there, on that picture frame. Someone who saw it would recognize it, right away.
And if you did not see it, that picture frame (from post number 3497 ) has all the "clue" you'll ever need.
* You don't know any actor/actress from that frame? You can do it Bill, I know you can.

I'm not kidding. No one's gotten it yet. If people here don't recognize it you can't just repost the same photo. You have to offer new clues or post another image.
