Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "Hey Johnny, what are you rebelling against?"

Answer: The Wild One

In 1953, Marlon Brando, Mary Murphy and Robert Keith starred in "The Wild One", a cinematic take on "The Cyclists' Raid", a short story by Frank Rooney that was published in January 1951 in "Harper's Magazine".

Brando plays the leader of a motorcycle gang that drives into a California town during a race and immediately causes mayhem.

A romance with the daughter of a cafe owner (Murphy) follows. The arrival of a rival gang causes more trouble and violence.

The question is asked of Brando during a scene in which young people are dancing. Brando's reply is "Whaddya got?"

(The line is sometimes misquoted as "What are you rebelling against, Johnny?")

Extra interesting information, "The Wild One" was banned in the United Kingdom until 1967 for being seen as dangerous and harmful to society.
2. "You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?"

Answer: Dirty Harry

An unforgettable line by Clint Eastwood playing the detective Harry Callahan in "Dirty Harry".

The movie was made in 1971 and was set in San Francisco. Eastwood plays a cop seeking to capture a serial killer, "Scorpio", (played by Andy Robinson).

The killer shoots a young woman and sets out to blackmail the city authorities, demanding $100,000 or he will kill one victim each day until the demand is met.

The quote occurs twice in the movie. It can first be heard when Callahan observes a bank robbery in progress. He intervenes and kills two of the robbers and wounds a third. Callahan then asks him: "I know what you're thinking: 'Did he fire six shots or only five?' Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kind of lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do you, punk?"

Afterwards, Callahan's search for Scorpio becomes more desperate and the killer's demands escalate.
3. "Why'd it have to be snakes?"

Answer: Raiders of the Lost Ark

Harrison Ford played intrepid archeologist Indiana Jones in a popular and profitable series of movies.

"Indy" is an action hero archaeologist, a description that will probably make proper archaeologists wince.

While he is courageous and handy with a bull whip as a weapon, what Indy does not like is snakes; he has a phobia about them. (Sorry, no bonus points for knowing its proper name is Ophidiophobia.)

Made in 1981, "Raiders of the Lost Ark" is the first instalment in the franchise. In it Indy takes part in an expedition to trace and take the Ark of the Covenant from where it has lain lost and hidden in Egypt before the Nazis can get their hands on it.

When he locates it, he finds the hiding place is swarming with snakes.
4. "Did you ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?"

Answer: Batman

The question comes from the 1989 movie "Batman".

Michal Keaton plays the caped crusader battling to keep Gotham City safe for the good and the pretty.

His chief opponent is "The Joker", played by Jack Nicholson, who gets to utter the question.

Batman's task is to stop The Joker, who is terrorising Gotham City by lacing hygiene products with a deadly chemical that causes victims to die laughing. He also kidnaps the luscious Vicky Vale (Kim Basinger.)

The bat and mouse chase to track down and capture The Joker comes when Batman confronts him on the roof of the cathedral.

"Did you ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight" is a question The Joker asks one of his victims when he is about to kill them. Do I hear you ask "what did he mean"? I have not got a clue, but there are several debates on the Internet that you should be able to check out.
5. "You talkin' to me?"

Answer: Taxi Driver

Made in 1976, "Taxi Driver" stars Robert De Niro, Jodie Foster, Harvey Keitel, Cybill Shepherd, Peter Boyle and Albert Brooks.

De Niro plays a US Marine veteran who takes up driving a New York city cab in order to handle his acute insomnia.

He falls for campaign worker Cybill Shepherd, but their dating is unsuccessful and he plans to kill her boss, a would-be presidential hopeful (Leonard Harris).

Despite his growing anger and violent thoughts, he has a soft spot for a teenage prostitute, Jodi Foster, and adds her pimp, Harvey Keitel, to his list of targets.

"Taxi Driver" is considered to be one of the best movies ever made and was nominated for four Oscars, winning none.

"You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? Then who the hell else are you talkin' to? You talkin' to me? Well I'm the only one here..." De Niro says in an imaginary conversation to himself in a mirror.
6. "Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me. Aren't you?"

Answer: The Graduate

Anne Bancroft, Dustin Hoffman and Katharine Ross star in the 1967 movie "The Graduate", based on a novel published four years earlier.

Hoffman is a college graduate who meets an older woman (Bancroft) at a party thrown by his parents. He drives her home and once inside her house she attempts to seduce him.

Initially he rejects her approaches, but gradually a relationship begins. Everything becomes even more complicated when he dates her daughter (Ross), much to the disapproval of Bancroft.

As well as providing a major boost to Hoffman's career, the movie did no harm at all to that of the folk-oriented duo Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. Their song "The Sound of Silence" was used throughout, and Simon provided a new song "Mrs Robinson", which, in an altered form, was to be a huge hit for the duo.

The line in the question has often been misquoted as "Are you trying to seduce me, Mrs Robinson?"
7. "Mama, what's vacation mean?"

Answer: Forrest Gump

The 1994 movie "Forrest Gump" is based on a novel of the same name written by Winston Groom in 1986.

It stars Tom Hanks, Robin Wright, Gary Sinise and Sally Field in the story of a rather simple young man, Hanks, who joins the US Marines during the Vietnam War and becomes a hero.

Gump grows up with a walking difficulty in rural Alabama. After throwing off his crutches and his war service, he goes on to be an inspirational person, even meeting the President.

Throughout all of it, Gump remains largely unaware of the impact life is having on him, and the impact he is having on the lives of others.

"Forrest Gump" was nominated for 13 Academy Awards and won six, including Best Actor and Best Picture.

The question is asked by a young Forrest (IQ 75) of his mother, Sally Field: "Mama, what's vacation mean?
Mrs. Gump: Vacation?
Young Forrest Gump: Where daddy went?
Mrs. Gump: Vacation's when you go somewhere...and you don't ever come back."
8. "You really think he's innocent?"

Answer: 12 Angry Men

"12 Angry Men" was a 1957 movie based on a CBS play in the series "Studio One" broadcast in 1954. It was then re-written for the stage in 1955.

The movie stars Henry Fonda, Lee J. Cobb, Ed Begley, E. G. Marshall and Jack Warden. It is the story of a group of strangers thrown together as a jury in a criminal trial. (This was the 1950s, so, naturally, all were male.)

The case they are trying is of an 18-year-old boy accused of stabbing his father to death.

The question is one of those posed when the jury retires to consider their verdict.

"12 Angry Men" is sometimes cited as being a precursor to many movies and TV shows based on the American legal system. It lifted the lid on personal relationships between people brought together in a strange and pressured situation.
9. "Do you really think you have a chance against us, Mr. Cowboy?"

Answer: Die Hard

Made in 1988, "Die Hard" is the first in a series of movies to feature Bruce Willis as New York City cop John McClane.

In the movie, McClane is off duty and on holiday in Los Angeles when a group of criminals led by Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) seize a building and hostages, including McClane's estranged wife (Bonnie Bedelia).

With the FBI and LAPD seemingly ineffective in thwarting Gruber's plans to steal $640m in bearer bonds, it is up to McClane to succeed.

The quote is in a conversation between Hans Gruber and John McClane:
Gruber: "...who are you? Just another American who saw too many movies as a child? Another orphan of a bankrupt culture who thinks he's John Wayne? Rambo? Marshal Dillon?
McClane: Was always kinda partial to Roy Rogers actually. I really like those sequinned shirts.
Gruber: Do you really think you have a chance against us, Mr. Cowboy?"
10. "Well, Clarice, have the lambs stopped screaming?"

Answer: The Silence of the Lambs

Jodie Foster, Anthony Hopkins and Scott Glenn star in the 1991 movie "The Silence of the Lambs", which is based on a novel of the same name written in 1988 by Thomas Harris.

The movie and novel are the second outing for serial killer/cannibal Hannibal Lecter (though the name is spelt differently in each).

In the first, "Manhunter", to feature the sadistic killer, he was captured and imprisoned.

In "Silence of the Lambs", a young FBI trainee, Foster, is drafted in to interview Lecter (Hopkins) in a bid to learn something about the mindset of people like him.

Lecter, a trained psychiatrist himself, has a way of getting inside the head of people who interview him. His question comes after an earlier conversation between Lecter and Clarice in which he got her to admit that she tried to run away from her farm home after hearing strange sounds one morning.
Hannibal Lecter: "And what did you see, Clarice? What did you see?
Clarice Starling: Lambs. The lambs were screaming."
