We Describe the Spy Movie (in 3 Words or Less)...You Name It!

Surely, I'm involved with this quiz!
For this quiz, we've shorted the movie descriptions to three words or less. Your mission--should you decide to accept it--is to name the films. Each answer is a spy flick made prior to 1970. A few of them are easy, but  three of them are pretty difficult. Please include the question number with your answer and limit your responses to no more than three--so other people can play, too. Good luck!

The phone in #4.
1. Bowler hat.

2. Rusted nail.

3. Chocolate.

4. Distinctive phone ring.

5. Wine.

The "bed-slide" in #7.
6. Oven.

7. Bed-slide into bubbles.

8. Code name "L".

9. Anti-gravity device.

10. Volcano.

  3. Hey, Rick, here are my guesses:
    Bowler Hat: GOLDFINGER
    Distinctive Phone Ring: IN LIKE FLINT and OUR MAN FLINT
    Wine: NOTORIOUS
    Oven: TORN CURTAIN
    Volcano: SPY KIDS 2
    Chocolate: TOP SECRET!

    That's all that leaps readily to mind. Thanks for the fun quiz, and for having done such a great job at the CMBA! You're the best! :-)

    1. Dorian, you are right on all counts except for SPY KIDS 2 and TOP SECRET. They don't fit the pre-1970s criteria.

  4. Gosh, that "anti-gravity device" rings a bell, but my bell isn't working too well today...

    3. Arabesque ( or was that a candy wrapper? )

    1. Very impressed that you got THE SECRET AGENT! There's a better (but more obscure) answer to #9. (Besides, one Matt Helm pic per quiz is all that's allowed!)

    1. Well done! I thought that was the hardest question of all. I remember enjoying this film, aka LICENSED TO KILL, starring Tom Adams as agent Charles Vine.

  8. The Liquidator is available thru Warner Archives. I remembered them singing The Second Best Secret Agent in Tinker Taylor. I liked Tom Adams, I remember he did an Avengers, with Mrs. Peel, i think. This was a really good quiz. Thanks!
