1 At the beginning of the movie "Secondhand Lions", Walter's mother, Mae, drove him up the long driveway leading to the house in which he would spend the summer with his great-uncles. Posted along the sides of the driveway were many warning signs. Which of the following signs was NOT posted?
Answer: I'd Turn Back If I Were You

The movie does not actually tell the viewer why the signs were posted, but inferring from the movie, Hub and Garth probably posted these signs because they were getting old, and they wanted to live out their years without being bothered by visitors. Hub and Garth also had a lot of money hidden in the barn, and they may have posted the signs to prevent people from going onto their property and searching for it.
"I'd Turn Back If I Were You" was a sign outside the Wicked Witch of the West's castle in "The Wizard of Oz". There was a sign on the side of Hub and Garth's driveway that said, "Turn Back Now". The other three answers were all signs along the driveway.
