A Sideways Glare at Contemporary Society
Meanwhile in Vancouver, Canada, the snow has turned to freezing rain. The streets look like somebody spilled a gigantic dirt and dishwater daiquiri. It’s been a week since I’ve done anything but shovel. I’ve eaten all the chocolate, all the cookies and all the leftover Christmas candy. This is my last bag of Doritos and my last Pepsi. Now I know how the boys of Terra Nova felt. (Too soon?) But, if I’m going to go down, I’m going to go down swinging, testing the mettle of my electronic friends.
This is a movie quote puzzle. Here are 11 quotes from 11 movies and the 11 actors and actresses who spoke them. You have to match the quote to the actor or actress and then name the movie. This is moderately difficult. Hint: Use the process of elimination.
So, if you like, answer all the questions correctly and use Contact Me to send me your answers. The first person to get all of them correct (100%) will be awarded a signed copy of The Woman in the Window — everybody else will bask in the knowledge that they did a good job. The contest ends at noon on Monday Feb. 13, 2017 (Vangroovy time.) Answers next week. Good luck!
