Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Who is the director of the film whose title is hinted at by the photo?

Answer: Alfred Hitchcock

The film is "The Birds" (1963) in which there is a series of massed bird attacks on people in Bodega Bay, California over the course of a few days. The film was partly based on a 1952 book of the same name by Daphne du Maurier.

British film maker Hitchcock was involved in making films for nearly 20 years before moving across to Hollywood in 1939. He was known for his psychological thriller and suspense films, producing more than 50 films over his long career. These include "Rear Window" (1954), "North By Northwest" (1959) and "Psycho" (1960). He was also known for cameo appearances in most of his films. He married in 1926 and had a daughter Pat, who became an actress and appeared in some of his films.
2. Who directed the film suggested by the photo?

Answer: Steven Spielberg

The shark's head gives you the film "Jaws" (1975), Spielberg's interpretation of Peter Benchley's book of the same name.

Born in 1946, Spielberg started off professionally with TV movies in the 1960s and became a box office name with "Jaws". He has since gone on to make many award-winning films such as "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" (1977), "Raiders of the Lost Ark" (1981) and "Schindler's List" (1993). He was reported by Nickelodeon Magazine as saying his career started in 1958 when he made a nine minute film to earn a Boy Scout's badge.
3. Which director fits this film?

Answer: Martin Scorsese

If you look closely, you can see the hands of the driver. This gives you "Taxi Driver" (1976). There are some other Scorsese films you could get from this photo. For example, the taxi is marked NYC, which stands for New York City from which you could get the 1979 film "New York, New York". It could also point towards "New York Stories" (1989) since taxi drivers often like to talk. All were Scorsese-directed films.

Born in 1942, American director Martin Scorsese has an Italian heritage and is considered one of the directing greats. His interest in films can possibly be attributed to his childhood asthma, which lead to much time being spent in movie theatres instead of on sports fields. Many of his films portray American crime, gang violence and exploring his heritage. He is noted for his collaborations with such actors as Robert de Niro, Harvey Keitel and Leonardo DiCaprio.
4. Bearing in mind the genre of book suggested by the photo, which film director/producer does it point you to?

Answer: Quentin Tarantino

Although this particular book was written in 2009, it is intended to be reminiscent of pulp fiction, the name given for the mass of American escapist fiction stories printed on cheap paper in the first half of the 20th century. Detective thrillers such as this one were typical of the genre. It is also the name of the 1994 film directed by Quentin Tarantino. The woman with the gun could point to the 2004 film "My Name is Modesty", about the former crime boss turned secret agent Modesty Blaise. Tarantino was producer for this film.

American director Quentin Tarantino, born in 1963, is known for his mixing of film genres, the stylized use of violence and the way he uses music in his films. He has won two Oscars, both for Original Screenplay, for his films "Pulp Fiction" (1994) and "Django Unchained" (2012).
5. Using your fingers here should lead you to this actor. Who is he?

Answer: Morgan Freeman

The film was the 1995 thriller "Seven" (or "Se7en"). You could also get the 2010 film "Red" since the planes are from the Red Arrows display team and are coloured red. The arrows part could also lead you to "Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves" (1991) in which Morgan Freeman also appeared, but perhaps that is a bit of a stretch.

American actor Morgan Freeman, born in Tennessee during 1937, has acted in films since the early 1970s and includes many box-office hits in his appearances. He gained an Oscar as best supporting actor in the 2004 sports drama "Million Dollar Baby", a Clint Eastwood-directed film. A car accident in 2008 caused nerve damage to his left arm and left him unable to move his fingers on his left hand at the time.
6. Who is the director of this toothy film?

Answer: Francis Ford Coppola

The film was "Bram Stoker's Dracula" (1992) and featured Gary Oldman as the man with the teeth.

An American director, Coppola has been making films since the 1960s and, amongst his various award-winning films, is the 1974 American crime drama "The Godfather Part II" which is notable for being the first sequel to win an Oscar for Best Picture, one of four Oscars won by the film. Coppola has been active outside the film world as well: for example, making Californian wines since late 1970s, owning various hotels and resorts around the world, and founding a literary magazine.
7. Who provides the link to this picture?

Answer: Woody Allen

The photograph shows some ants which points to the films "Antz" (1998). In the animated film "Antz", Woody Allen provided the voice for the character Z.

Born in 1935, Woody Allen has been making films since 1965 either as director, writer or actor, or a combination of the three. In fact he has combined these three roles in 30 films, as of 2013. He has also been a lifelong fan of jazz (hinted at by the soundtracks to many of his films) and has played the clarinet with his New Orleans Jazz band for many years.
8. Who directed this film connected to a jazz legend?

Answer: Clint Eastwood

"Bird" (1988) is the name of the film. It looks a bit like it is doing some "Tightrope" (1984) walking. Eastwood directed both films and was the lead character in "Tightrope". "Bird" is a tribute to jazz saxophonist Charlie 'Bird' Parker.

Clint Eastwood made his name acting in spaghetti westerns during the 1960s and then added directing, producing and composing songs to his repertoire. He has been active in politics for some years, being elected mayor of Carmel-by-the-Sea, California in 1986 for a two-year term and being appointed to various state government positions since then.
9. Which actress appeared in the film indicated by the photo?

Answer: Julia Roberts

In this Steven Spielberg film, Julia Roberts played the character Tinkerbell. This, the 1991 film "Hook", could be considered a film sequel to the J M Barrie's 1911 book "Peter Pan".

Julia Roberts started making a name for herself as an actress from around 1989. Since then she has appeared in more than 40 films including "Steel Magnolias" (1989), "Pretty Woman" (1990) and "Erin Brockovich" (2000), for which she got an Oscar. She has spent time supporting a number of charities as well as UNICEF, the UN humanitarian programme.
10. Who directed this classic?

Answer: Stanley Kubrick

The controversial 1971 film "A Clockwork Orange" is an adaptation of the book of the same name by Anthony Burgess.

Stanley Kubrick (1928-1999), the American director of the film, is considered by some as one of the world's greatest film makers. Most of his films have been nominated for an award of one form or another. His films include "Spartacus" (1960), "2001: Space Odyssey" (1968), "The Shining" (1980) and "Full Metal Jacket" (1987). Kubrick was married three times, his third lasting for over 40 years until his death. He had a stepdaughter and two daughters by his third wife Christiane.
