Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. A tramp in love with a blind flower girl was the theme of which 1931 silent film, ranked number 10 by the AFI?

Answer: City Lights

Although Hollywood was well into the era of sound, Charlie Chaplin's popularity as the Little Tramp enabled him to release this silent film with recorded music. In an effort to show that the blind flower girl thought that the mute Little Tramp was a wealthy person, Chaplin re-shot the scene 342 times.
2. Oliver Barrett, a wealthy college hockey player, and Jennifer Cavalleri, a poor music student from the other side of the track fell in love in which 1970, number nine ranked film, that coined a 70's cliche?

Answer: Love Story

Based on Erich Segal's bestseller, "Love Story" was 1971's number one box office money maker. Surprisingly, several young actors, including Beau Bridges, Jon Voight, Michael Sarrazin, Michael Douglas, Michael York, Peter Fonda, Jeff Bridges and Keith Carradine, turned down the role of Oliver and the opportunity to say the famous line, "Love means never having to say you're sorry." Instead, Ryan O'Neal of television's "Peyton Place" was cast opposite Ali MacGraw.
3. In which 1946 movie, ranked 8th, did an angel named Clarence assist a despondent man named George Bailey in the review of a community's life without him?

Answer: It's a Wonderful Life

An angel trying to earn his wings showed a suicidal man how dismal the town of Bedford Falls would have been had the man never been born. The holiday classic was produced, financed, directed and co-written by Frank Capra and starred James Stewart and Donna Reed. The movie did poorly at the box office and at the Academy Awards, due largely to the fact that it debuted a week after "The Best Years of Our Lives" which won seven Oscars.
4. The Bolshevik Revolution was the setting for the love triangle of Yuri, Lara and Tonya in which 1965 film ranked number seven on the AFI list?

Answer: Doctor Zhivago

Although the sprawling epic David Lean film lost out as Best Picture, the 3 hour movie won Oscars for art direction, cinematography, costume design, music score and writing. Omar Shariff played the married Russian poet doctor who fell in love with the beautiful Lara, played by Julie Christie.
5. In which 6th ranked, 1973 film did a liberal Katie Morosky and conservative Hubbell Gardiner have an on-again off-again relationship, stretching over a period of decades?

Answer: The Way We Were

Composer Marvin Hamlisch won Academy Awards for the title song as well as for Original Dramatic Score. Barbra Streisand and Robert Redford starred in director Sydney Pollack's story of the relationship of a communist political activist and a Hollywood screenwriter during the McCarthy era.
6. Nickie Ferrante, a dashing playboy, and Terry McKay, a beautiful night club singer met on a cruise ship and agreed to meet again in six months, in which 1957 film ranked number five?

Answer: An Affair to Remember

Cary Grant was left waiting atop the Empire State Building when Deborah Kerr was struck by an automobile on her way to meet him. Of the top ranked AFI romantic films, "An Affair to Remember" is the highest ranked film where the lovers end up together at the end.
7. In what number four ranked 1953 film did a European princess fall in love with an American reporter?

Answer: Roman Holiday

Audrey Hepburn won the Best Actress Academy Award for her portrayal of a young princess who became bored of her official duties on a state visit to Italy. After sneaking away, she met an American reporter, played by Gregory Peck, who showed her around Rome, while secretly intending to get an exclusive interview.
8. Gang violence was the backdrop for Tony and Maria's romance, in what 3rd ranked 1961 movie?

Answer: West Side Story

The slums of New York City were the setting for this musical version of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet". Instead of the rival Montague and Capulet families there were the street gangs Jets and Sharks. Tony, a former Jet, fell in love with Maria, the sister of the leader of the Sharks.

A predictable tragic story and ending followed. The film swept the Academy Awards with wins in 10 categories, including Best Picture.
9. A turbulent love affair between a gentleman from Charleston and a manipulative southern belle was carried out during the American Civil War, in what 1939 film classic, rated number two on the AFI list?

Answer: Gone With the Wind

The classic dramatization of a southern woman's struggles during the Civil War, the legendary epic ran just shy of four hours and had more than 50 speaking parts and used some 2400 extras. Although Clark Gable failed to win an Oscar for his portrayal of the dashing Rhett Butler, Vivien Leigh won Best Actress as Scarlett O'Hara and the film gathered seven other Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
10. While mainly known for his tough guy roles, Humphrey Bogart starred in the number one greatest love story of all time. What was the name of the movie about a saloon owner during World War II?

Answer: Casablanca

Rick Blaine was a cynical expatriate operating a nightclub, when the former love of his life showed up with her husband in 1942's legendary film "Casablanca". Originally entitled "Everybody Comes to Rick's", the movie won the Best Picture Academy Award as well as Oscars for its director, Michael Curtiz and its writers, Julius Epstein, Philip Epstein and Howard Koch.

Interestingly, only three of the cast members were American born, Bogart, Dooley Wilson, who played Sam, and Joy Page who played the young Bulgarian wife. Wilson did not know how to play the piano so all of the music was done behind a curtain by a real piano player.

This was Joy Page's first film appearance. It didn't hurt her career that her step-father happened to be the head of the studio Jack L. Warner.
