20:07 Guess The Movies

screenshots from the 20th minute and 7th second of a movie
I can't guarantee the same results at home (different players/timing) I use a VLC

This is the 90th episode of the 20:07 series. Whew. It's time to say goodbye * Your pleas to continue have been noted... so special 20:07's will pop up from time to time but I can't manage a daily series when I have so many other fun projects to share here and Oscar season coming up. Thanks -the management. To end things with a bang, here's some images that I didn't use. 20:07 isn't usually your typical screenshot quiz but it is this time.

COMPLETED Thanks for playing. Only one still was never guessed by anyone. And it's #10, the 60s musical



#1 MOGAMBO (1953) somebody's crying. And that somebody is Ava Gardner who got her first and only Oscar nomination here. Correctly guessed by kingroper (Fun wrong guesses: All That Heaven Allows (the color), Silkwood (the porch), or Johnny Guitar (almost the right year!)

#2 JULES ET JIM (1962) Correctly guessed by John T and Marissa. (Wrong guesses: Rebecca, The Seventh Seal, Rashomon, Wild Strawberries, Persona)

#3 RING (2002) Guessed correctly by Justin, Garen and Michael B --that image is Naomi Watts realizing that there's a time pattern to those teenage deaths (Fun wrong guesses: Brick, Pretty Persuasion, John Tucker Must Die, Zodiac, Mean Girls)

#4 NASHVILLE (1975) One of my favorite movies of all time... the giveaway is the mobile political sign on the car in the rear, a recurring image throughout the movie. Correctly guessed by Paul, Dr. G, Nick and StinkyLulu

#5 BATMAN BEGINS (2005) It's Liam Neeson and Christian Bale fighting on the ice. A friendly fight but still a tussle. Correctly guessed by Michael B, Mikadzuki, Dr. G and Daniel A. (Fun wrong guesses: Brokeback Mountain and Fargo)

#6 STORMY WEATHER (1943) "he's got educated feet!" Guessed by Deborah (author of The Ultimate James Bond Fan Book) Fun wrong guesses so far: It's not The Jazz Singer or The Littlest Rebel which was a good guess since it also starred Bill Robinson.

#7 MY FAIR LADY (1964) I could've been really misleading with the clue here and said "a musical number is NOT about to take place" which is true...believe it or not. But then you'd all think it wasn't a musical. Correctly guessed by Michael B, David, jrbyrne, Roy, JLT/JLT, Paul, Dr. G, Nick and StinkyLulu (Fun wrong guesses: Age of Innocence, Oliver! and Gangs of New York)

#8 DRACULA (1931) A lot of this ship's inhabitants are not going to survive this ocean journey. Correctly guessed by goatdog.

#9 BLUE VELVET (1986). Trivia: Did y'all know that Woody Allen thought this was the best picture of its year and said so when doing press for his Oscar nominations for Hannah and Her Sisters? Correctly guessed by Mikadzuki, JLT/JLT, John T and Nick (Fun wrong guesses: Animal House, Cry Baby, Twin Peaks)

#10 I told you that this image was from a 60s musical but one that was not nominated for Best Picture. It was a tough one given the tablecloth and the movement... so what's underneath that tablecloth...
[cue musical number] "You Two!" It's Dick Van Dyke's towhead motherless moppets in CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG (1968) --guessed correctly by no one. (Wrong guesses included: State Fair, Oklahoma!, Oliver!, Sweet Charity, Umbrellas of Cherbourgh, Dancer in the Dark, Thoroughly Modern Millie, The Young Girls of Rochefort and The King and I)

CAN YOU NAME THE UNGUESSED MOVIES?


Here are my dozen favorite episodes of this fun journey in screen captures: Bob & Ted * a journey * Judy & Jim * Meerkat * Mirrored / Married * Miss Wang * Movie Making * A Poetry Reading * 'Poor Terry' * A Strange and Extraordinary Person * "Tasty!" * The Whole Bloody Affair ...and shed a teardrop for the only episode that prompted no comments whatsoever "Goodbye to Blueberry Pie"
