Classic Movie Quiz : Pioneers of Cinema

I'll try to do a weekly quiz if time permits. Here is the first one on the early years of cinema. All the questions are multiple choice apart from one as an experiment. You shouldn't need to fill in your name if you don't want to. Please have a go :

Yes I put Edwin S Porter (and a few variations but without the .) as the right answer sorry about that.

On question three, I wrote the answer as Edwin S. Porter, and my answer was judged wrong! Do I get credit? If I do, then I got 8 out of 10.

I'm suprised as well. My guesses were right but the ones I was convinced I knew - I got wrong!!

I think it should give you a report at the end of the quiz which tells you the questions you got right and wrong. You just pan down on the screen where you get your score. I could in future set it up to give the correct answers after each question instead of at the end. I looked at the TCM site, their filmography of Griffith doesn't appear to be in release order (like imdb its listed in reverse but the shorts aren't in order).

Please don't cheat but the answer to the Griffith question can be found on this page under Milestone :

D.W. Griffith

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
