QUICK CUTS: MOVIE QUIZ
With Michael Arruda
Not too long ago, the movie DYLAN DOG: DEAD OF NIGHT (2011) came out, about a detective who battles vampires and zombies. So, it’s a good time to remember one of the most famous film detective icons of all time, Humphrey Bogart.
Bogie’s unforgettable performances as gumshoe Sam Spade in THE MALTESE FALCON (1941) and as Philip Marlowe in THE BIG SLEEP (1946), as well as his performances in such powerhouse movies as CASABLANCA (1942) (considered by many to be the best movie of all time, where there seems to be a famous quote spoken by someone every five minutes), and THE AFRICAN QUEEN (1951), for which Bogie won his only Oscar, are just as powerful today as they were then. Bogart remains one of the most recognizable film icons even today, more than 50 years after his death in 1957.
So, in honor of Humphrey Bogart, here’s today’s quiz:
1) Among Bogart’s 80 movies, he starred in a horror movie only once. What was the name of that horror movie?
2) What was the name of the original movie to which Bogart’s film was a sequel? (at least in name only, as the two movies have very little in common.)
3) Who played the title character in the original, and who played the title character in Bogart’s sequel?
