THE BIG FIFTEEN ON FRIDAY – 09/11/07

I once ran a quiz in an old job called The Big 50 on Friday that was 50 questions spread over five or six subjects with picture rounds and all sorts. I guess I had a lot of spare time in that job as I’m going to slash the quiz in its new format from 50 to 15. Also, all questions will be solely film-centric and phrased or presented in such a way so as the answers are not easily Googled on the intermaweb, not that I’d suspect for one minute that my loyal readership of two would sully their reputations and blacken their souls with such nefarious skullduggery. Oh no. Anyway, stick your answers in the comments and the first to guess correctly will get their name emblazoned ‘pon this hallowed tome in fancy neon with cherubs and shit, or not….
