This won't be no easy game for the casual movie fan, but each shot should give you enough clues to narrow the field down to a certain year/decade/genre/actor if you're clever enough. And to entice you to throw out your guess - no matter how wild it is - we're giving away a FREE ORIGINAL MOVIE STILL from Silverbanks Pictures to anyone who can name that film!
Here's the details to the game :
1. Name that Film begins the moment the post is posted. If you make a guess before we post the screenshot you don't win anything. You'll just be a fortune teller.
2. Only one comment per comment box please. If we tell you you are wrong and you want to guess again, go right ahead! Just don't string your guesses all together in one box. Cheater, cheater, cheater.
3. All films are either UK or US releases from pre-1975. If a television movie and foreign film screenshot is being used we will state so. We're not that sneaky.
4. The game will remain open until a winner is announced. If no winner is announced, the game is still going.
5. There is only one winner for each screenshot. First one to correctly guess wins. What is the prize? Any original movie still in the Silverbanks Pictures eBay store - up to a $6 value. Yeah, we're generous people. ( Actually, 90% of the inventory is under $6, so you don't have to feel too badly ). We'll cover shipping in the continental U.S. If you decide to purchase more than one still ( bully for you! ) shipping is still free...we'll just deduct $6 from your purchase total.
6. If you are announced the winner you have up to three weeks to contact us ( Contact Us is located on the menu below our blog's header ) to receive instructions on how to claim your prize.
Are you thoroughly confused yet?
Then let's begin with the first Impossibly Difficult screenshot :
Good luck guessing!
Update Aug. 21, 2013 :
GAME IS OVER.
The winner is Caftan Woman who correctly guessed "Flame Over India" aka "Northwest Frontier" ( 1959 ) starring Kenneth More, Lauren Bacall, Herbert Lom, Wilfred Hyde White, "Gupta", and the REAL star....Victoria, the Empress of India! She was the original Little-Engine-That-Could. In this scene the little engine and her stalwart crew had just entered the city after completing a successful escape mission.
