Fun Trivia
As early as the 1930s, filmmakers were remaking movies that had been made before, whether to add sound to a story previously told silently, or to showcase new stars in tried and true tales. As time passed the practice continued, and the quizzes to be found here examine some of those remakes. (Quizzes about individual movies whether original or remade will be found in the appropriate alphabetical subcategories.)   

There are 12 quizzes and 120 trivia questions in this category.
