Best Picture ChangeaLetter AP game quiz
"It's simple: I'll give you the year a film won Best Picture, a cryptic clue, and a letter. Change one letter in the title of the movie to that letter to get an answer corresponding to the clue. Example included. Spoilers in the interesting info!"

15 Points Per Correct Answer - No time limit  



1. Here's an example to get you started:
Change one letter in the title of the 1991 Best Picture Winner to an "A" to get a film about Tibetan monks who never talk?

The 1991 Best Picture winner was "The Silence of the Lambs," but even if you haven't memorized Best Picture Winners by year, you could probably decipher the word "lamas" from Tibetan monks, and "The Silence of the Lamas" isn't that hard of a stretch. Some clues will favor your knowing the title of the movie, but it's usually easier to work backward to figure these out. Your answer will NOT be a real movie title, but it will have a meaning similar to the cryptic clue that I give you. "The Silence of the Lamas" would be the correct answer for this question.

Your real first question uses the next letter of the alphabet; all 26 letters will be used in this quiz and its sequel.

Change one letter in the title of the 2005 Best Picture Winner to a "B" to get a film about boldness and audacity?

The answer will be title of that movie, with one letter changed to a "B," to get a word meaning "bold."
    Answer: (One Word: Detective Waters has a car accident in the film.)


2. Change one letter in the title of the 1935 Best Picture Winner to a "C" to get a film about a rebellion against the local government of an area?

So, once you've figured out the movie, change one letter to a "C" to get your answer. Alternatively, you can try to find synonyms for the word "rebellion" until you come up with a fake title similar to the clue given. Hints are provided, use them!
    Answer: (Four Words. Captain William Bligh is a major character in the film.)


3. Change one letter in the title of the 2009 Best Picture Winner to a "D" to get a movie about a nice shoe that has been kicked against the wall a few too many times?

Again, your answer will be the title of that movie, with the letter "D" replacing one letter in the title to get an answer referring to the cryptic clue above.
    Answer: (Three Words, including "The." The film is set in Iraq.)
