What's the Movie? We Describe It...You Name It!

This is our 3rd edition of this type of quiz, so you probably know the drill. If not, well, the rules are easy: Name each film below based on our (rather) vague description. Be sure to include the question number with your response. Please don't answer all the questions so others can play, too. There is one film that is the single, best answer to each description.

1. Hitchhikers make good use of bed linens.

2. Man visits his best friend, Morgan, every night--but Morgan won't let the guy in the house.

3. Why is that glass of milk glowing?

4. Seawater ruins healthy plants.

5. Cake raffle goes all wrong!

6. Guys kidnap women--everyone falls in love.

7. Vip!

8. Don't belittle Raquel Welch in this movie.

9. Ah, the old postmaster-who's-a-homicidal-master-of-disguises trick!

10. Huey, Dewey, and Louie.

11. Dead man swimmingly narrates the film.

12. Young, single woman moves in with seven guys.

13. You can do more with mashed potatoes than just eat them!

14. On the one hand, there's love...

15. Irresistible impulse.


  1. #1.It Happened One Night(1934). With Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable.

  2. #7.Lover Come Back(1961). With Doris Day and Rock Hudson.

  3. #12. Ball of Fire with Barbara Stanwyck and Gary Cooper.

    I made it in time..:)

  5. #5: Ministry of Fear

    #6: Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

    #15: Anatomy of a Murder

  6. CW, you and Dawn have gotten this quiz off to a rousing start!

  7. Working at this while making Sunday lunch...
    #3 is Suspicion
    #5 is Ministry of Fear
    #6 is Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
    #8 is Fantastic Voyage
    #11 is Sunset Boulevard
    #13 is Close Encounters of the Third Kind
    Hoping to keep working at the other clues later today. Great Quiz!

    1. Right on all counts! (I thought the Raquel Welch one might be a little--get it!--difficult.)

  8. #7 Lover Come Back!
    #12 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs-how'd I overlook that one?!
    Yeah, my first guess for Raquel was One Million B.C., but than I caught the clue word you used!

  9. Great clues.. I also knew, 8,11 and 13.

  10. Replies
    1. Impressive! It's an interesting movie. Haven't seen it in years. I think Douglas Trumbull's special effects were consider state-of-the-art at the time.

  11. Back for a few more answers: #1 is It Happened One Night
    #2 is The Last Man on Earth
    #14 is The Night of the Hunter
    #15 is Anatomy of a Murder

    #s 4,9,10 have me stumped!

    1. Nice job, especially with THE LAST MAN ON EARTH (an underrated horror pic in my opinion).

  12. Number 4: Day of the Triffids

    Fun quiz!

  13. 4-Day of The Triffids
    5-Ministry of Fear
    10-Silent Running

  14. Number 9 may be Sherlock Holmes and the Scarlet Claw.

    1. Great job, Yvette. You are correct and I believe that was the last unanswered question.
