Hmmm - I won't disclose my result then!

These are the kind of questions that rarely surface at Pub Quizzes, alas. I'm still waiting to be asked about films pre-1970, and/or Popular Music That Will Live Forever.

"Your final score is 10 out of 10.

You're doing well!

Try again"

Whaddaya mean? Shouldn't it read 10 out of 10, you are a guru. Typical Bebb talking it down!

Maybe they mean:
Now try Spot the Musical, guru. ;)

5 out of 10 on the quiz. How come Mr Miracle above knew all 10?

The man who knew too much?

But I notice he hasn't submitted his score for "Spot the Musical"...

3rd time doing that quiz and I still got less than 10. But then, at least I did get to see this nice result again:

"Incorrect, it was A Matter of Life and Death"

What a pathetic quiz. I got 11 out of 10.

Ask some hard ones why don't you Aunty Beeb?

For example:

Who was originally slated to direct "If" before Lindsay Anderson?

Of which British actor (and in what film) did a reviewer say "Even his teeth are funny."

What film marked the screen debut of both Dick Lester and Peter Sellars?

What was the name of the hit film based on the book by the only British novelist executed for treason last century?

Which film has Terence Stamp appeared in twice - ie: from two different eras at once?

Name the park where David Hemmings photographed something strange in "Blow Up"?

Which Archers' film did Winnie want banned during WWII?

Who played James Bond before Sean Connery?

An easy one now. Which film starred an ex-WWII commando, a South African politician and a former East-End barrow boy?

Which US director was Michael Reeves absolutely obsessed by?

Which theatrical adpation of a VS Naipaul novel helped inspire Monty Norman to write the James Bond theme?

What is Charlotte Rampling's email address?

NB: Aside from the Charlotte thing above, every other question has a real answer.

I think you should flog this quiz at AGB.

Failing that, I wish you could write the questions for a Pub Trivia gig.
I don't mind scoring 0/10 if the questions are good.
