First of all I would like to congratulate Daniel Crooke for winning June’s Daily Trivia Contest and thanks to everyone who participated!
July’s Daily Trivia contest gets off to a late start today with a new theme and a new prize. For those of you who are unfamiliar, one of the usual features at Film Misery is the Daily Trivia Contest (which can be found under the â€œInteractiveâ€ tab above). Every day, Monday through Saturday, I will post a question or a clue and your job will be to name the movie and submit by filling out the form. Each correct answer is worth a point on the scoreboard. At the end of the month, whoever has the most points wins the prize. Tiebreakers are decided by who submits first on the last day of the contest.
The theme for July: LET’S SCORE!
This month’s contest in Film Misery will require you to listen closely. Each day I will be posting a new clip from a famous film score and your task is to name that film.
Simple enough. Head on over to the trivia page and give it a shot!
The prize for this month is the Dirty Harry Two-Disc Special Edition DVD. Set in San Francisco in 1971, Dirty Harry is the gritty and suspenseful film that follows the story of Inspector Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood), who earns the moniker ‘Dirty Harry’ for his reputation of handling the dirtiest homicidal cases. The City by the Bay faces the terror of a serial killer known as Scorpio (Andrew Robinson), who viciously snipes at innocent victims and demands ransom through notes left at the scene of the crime. Callahan is assigned to the case along with his newest partner, Inspector Chico Gonzalez (Reni Santoni) to track down Scorpio and stop him. Using humiliation along with cat and mouse type games against Callahan, Scorpio is put to the test by the cop with the very dirty attitude. Includes new commentary by Eastwood biographer Richard Schickel, several featurettes, interviews with Patricia Clarkson, Joel Cox, Clint Eastwood, Hal Holbrook, Evan Kim, John Milius, Ted Post, Andy Robinson, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Robert Urich, and more!
