Beats me. Popeye? Mary Poppins? Chitty Chitty Bang Bang?

OOOH! I'm guessing Mary Poppins!

I thought Bert's hat was more of a top hat in Mary Poppins. That looks more like a police hat. But I don't have a guess.

Wow. A skirt that buttons down the back, and seams on the back of her stockings. That dates it a bit!

Someone has either been opening gifts, or trying things on at a very posh store. Probably New York or Chicago, because that cop on the roof wasn't wearing a bobbie-hat.

For no better reason than a hunch, I'll say breakfast at tiffany's for now. But I think I'll do better with clue number 3.

I got it right away! But then, I have an advantage. I can say "have I seen this?" (Quite often I haven't.) So there's a clue, guys. I've actually seen the movie.

It's clearly an older film. The next clue is coming at 2, and should clinch it for anyone who has seen this film.

And if you haven't seen this film, shame on you! Roll to save against your movie buff cred.

That skyline and lighting reminds me of Vertigo but I've only seen about ten minutes of it. Yes, I know... shame, shame.

Hmm... could be a Hitchcock. I don't remember a scene like that in vertigo, but hell, I even got the Jaws one wrong at first, so I'm not reliable with this sort of thing.

this is Vertigo. one of my favorite movies ever.

I've been trying to rent classic movies that we're all "supposed to" have seen but most of us never have. I watched that opening scene 5 or 6 times before I stayed awake long enough to see the rest of the movie.

Final image is up.

A classic shot of a famous bridge.

Yep: all those who guessed "Vertigo" - you're correct.

This is one of the best romantic movies I know. OK, tragic, but romantic.

This would be a classic that I have not seen, which explains why I didn't get it. Ah well, there's always next time. :-)

Posted by: Chuck S. at October 19, 2004 2:34 PM

I haven't seen it in years. I remember the rooftop scene and I remember the bridge scene, but not the scene from the second picture.

Brilliant movie, but I didn't like it much. A little too tragic for my tastes.

I have loved this movie ever since I saw it in college. Beautiful shots, Kim Novak, Jimmy Stewart, that crazy dream sequence, anguish, mental illness, love... It's awesome.

Anyhow, the second picture is when Scottie (Stewart) is getting Judy Barton the right clothing so that she will look more and more like Madeline (Novak).

Oh finally a movie I recognized early and I'm on vacation? No fair!

Posted by: B.O.B.(bob) at October 21, 2004 8:22 AM

I throw Vertigo up on the "Name That Movie" and you guys don't post. I told Maggie, "They must be on vacation."
