Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Picture this: a scene in an Arab market place. A man with a scimitar is making threatening gestures at our hero. The hero draws a gun and shoots him. What's the film?

Answer: Raiders of the Lost Ark

This is the first "Indiana Jones" movie, filmed in 1981. The director was Steven Spielberg.
The plot concerns the attempts by a group of Nazis to find the Ark of the Covenant, and Indiana's determination to stop them. It's a real rip-roaring adventure story, thrilling and funny.
I just love the look of complete boredom on Indie's face as he watches the fancy swordplay, clearly designed to terrify - and shoots the swordsman before walking off without a backward glance...it shouldn't make you laugh, but it does.
2. "'Tis but a scratch!" In which irreverent 1974 comedy do we see a black knight fight King Arthur?

Answer: Monty Python and the Holy Grail

"The Holy Grail" loosely follows the exploits of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table in their search for the Holy Grail. King Arthur comes across the Black Knight who is guarding the plank of wood fording the stream he needs to cross. During the sword fight the Black Knight, despite having all of his limbs severed, refuses to give up the fight.
In 2011, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" was voted second best comedy of all time in a poll conducted by the ABC and People magazine. It was beaten by the 1980 movie "Airplane".
3. What woman wouldn't like to have two men fighting over her? Name the 2001 movie that featured Mark Darcy and Daniel Cleaver fighting in the street, a restaurant, and across diner's dinners?

Answer: Bridget Jones's Diary

"Bridget Jones's Diary" (2001) is a romantic comedy based on a novel of the same name by Helen Fielding. For the role of Jones, Renee Zellweger put on a stone in weight, worked with a voice coach to perfect a British accent and worked undercover at a London book publishing company.
The character of Mark Darcy was deliberately written with Colin Firth in mind. Fielding admits to having developed a crush on him in the BBC's "Pride and Prejudice" where he played...Fitzwilliam Darcy.
Interestingly, both Colin Firth and Hugh Grant (Cleaver) were mentioned in the original novel.
4. There's something a bit unusual this time. Two children are walking through a wood in the dark, one of them wearing a 'ham' costume. A man attacks them with a knife and is fought off and killed with his own knife. What's the name of the film?

Answer: To Kill a Mockingbird

Adapted from the classic book by Harper Lee, this 1962 film starred Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch and Robert Duvall as the recluse, Boo Radley.
In the racist atmosphere of the American South, Atticus has been defending a black man accused of the rape of a white woman, Mayella Ewell. Her father, Bob Ewell has vowed revenge against Atticus and chooses to attack Atticus' children. He follows them through the woods, knocks Scout over and attacks Jem with a knife. Jem tries to fight him off and his arm gets broken. Alerted by the screams, Boo Radley comes to their rescue. Scout can't properly see what's happening because she's trapped in her costume, but Boo stabs Ewell with Ewells's own knife and kills him.
In order to protect the vulnerable Boo, the sheriff decides to say that Ewell fell on his own knife.
5. "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2", contains a great set-piece battle in which the Hogwarts Students, Staff, members of the Order of the Phoenix and the Hogwarts' statues fight the forces of Voldemort. Molly Weasley fights off a Death Eater, and shouts 'Not my daughter!' Who is she fighting?

Answer: Bellatrix Lestrange

The plot of this film is the continuing battle between Harry Potter and his friends against Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters.

Bellatrix Lestrange is the insane Death eater who has been responsible for the torture and killing of many people.
Molly Weasley's son, Fred has already been killed in the battle. Molly, generally the gentlest of women, is not about to lose another child to the forces of evil, and confronts Bellatrix, who is about to attack Ginny Weasley. Summoning all her powers, Molly utterly destroys Bellatrix.
This was the last film in the "Harry Potter" franchise and was released in 2011.
6. This is the film that introduced the crane kick to children everywhere. Which film featured this move in the classic good kid versus bad kid showdown?

Answer: The Karate Kid

This 1984 film, starring Pat Morita and Ralph Macchio, is a classic tale of how a picked on kid learns martial arts. Ralph Macchio plays the child picked on by bullies at his new school. Pat Morita is a handyman, who just happens to be a martial arts master, who teaches him karate.

When the final showdown between the picked on kid and the leader of the bullies happens, he unleashes the secret move, the crane kick, and wins the bout. Pat Morita was Oscar and Golden Globe nominated for Best Supporting Actor.

The film spawned two sequels, was re-vamped in 1994 as "The Next Karate Kid" and was remade in 2010 with Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith.
7. Where would the movies be without swashbucklers? In which film did Errol Flynn and Basil Rathbone go head to head in an epic sword fight?

Answer: The Adventures of Robin Hood

Made in 1938 "The Adventures of Robin Hood" features Errol Flynn as Robin Hood and Basil Rathbone as Sir Guy of Gisborne. Their epic sword fight scene features swinging from lights, fighting up and down stairs, leaping over tables and each others swords, and just about every other acrobatic device ever envisaged by a fight coordinator. The plot is based on the English legend of Robin Hood, an outlaw living in Sherwood Forest with his band of men, who fought injustice and robbed the rich to give to the poor. It is set at the time of the Crusades when King Richard was away in the Holy Land and his brother, Prince John, was regent, with ambitions to be King.

The film also starred Olivia de Havilland as Maid Marion and Claud Rains as Prince John. It was awarded three Oscars, Best Art Direction, Best Film Editing and Best Original Score.
8. You can always rely on John Wayne for a good fight scene. In which film does he play a man reluctant to fight, but who is eventually pushed into it? This scene spills over until it encompasses the entire village.

Answer: The Quiet Man

This 1952 film teamed John Wayne with Maureen O'Hara. He is the Quiet Man of the title. He is an Irish American who travels to Ireland to reclaim his family land. He falls in love with and marries Maureen O'Hara, but her bullying brother refuses to pass over her dowry. John Wayne is reluctant to fight him for this, as he is an ex boxer who killed someone in the ring.

This estranges him from his wife. When he is eventually pushed into fighting, the fight spills out over the entire Irish village. John Wayne, of course, wins both the fight and the girl. John Ford received Best Director Oscar for this film.
9. In a scene in "Kill Bill" "The Bride" takes on an entire Japanese gang as well as a hammer wielding school girl. Who plays the Bride?

Answer: Uma Thurman

"The Bride" is out to revenge herself on those who carried out a massacre at her wedding, leaving her for dead. This was done on the orders of her former boss, Bill. In her quest for revenge she hunts down and kills all those involved. In the scene in a restaurant in Japan she takes on the Tokyo Yakuza, leaving enough severed limbs lying around to satisfy the most bloodthirsty audience. Quentin Tarantino chose to release this film in two parts, one in 2003 and the second in 2004. This was due to the total running time of just over four hours. David Carradine appeared as Bill.

Uma Thurman also appeared in "Pulp Fiction", another Tarantino film, most remembered for the dance scene between her and John Travolta. She was nominated for a Golden Globe Award, an Oscar and a BAFTA, all as Best Supporting Actress for "Pulp Fiction".
10. A moving train is always a good setting for a fight. In which film does Sean Connery, as James Bond, have a train fight scene?

Answer: From Russia With Love

This 1963 film was the second "Bond" film, and the second outing for Sean Connery. The plot is a fairly simple one. Bond is helping a female Russian agent defect to the west, and an organisation known as SCEPTRE is trying to prevent this. The train fight scene is set on board the Orient Express, on which Bond and the Russian are escaping.

The fight between Sean Connery and Robert Shaw is only two minutes long but manages to pack in a booby trapped briefcase, a broken train window, enough punches to satisfy anyone, and a final stabbing and strangling.

The cinematographer, Ted Moore, won a BAFTA and the theme song was nominated for a Golden Globe.
