Daily Trivia Question - Honor System

Post by packpaljs on Tue Apr 21, 2009 3:44 am

This is a new game:

Every day I will post a new multiple choice question about a movie. There's no way to keep people from cheating so we'll play by honor system rules and just assume we're in this for the fun. I'll keep track of who gets it right and who get's it wrong. The person with the most points after 14 questions will then be able to pick a movie that the rest of us will try to watch. You can pick anything from your personal favorite to something completely ridiculous that everyone will hate. Your call.

4/20 Question:
In what 1932 film does a character played by George Raft continually flip a coin in the air?

A. Some Like It Hot
B. Ocean's Eleven
C. Skidoo
D. Scarface

New question will be posted around the same time tomorrow 4/21, Good luck and remember honor system.

Short Circuit referenced the film but with Johnny 5 flipping a washer instead of a coin.

D. I know because the commentary (or was it a special feature?) on De Palma's references him.

I didn't know that one. I haven't seen the Wild Bunch in 4-5 years or so and have never seen the others.

Not everyone is responding everyday so it might be fine. I've only done 2 of 14 and we'll have other rounds.

I will go with C also. I know he was D. "It's good to be the king." LOL
Unless it is a trick question and he was a different king.

Oh well, C anyway.
