    Brit Cinema Quiz

    A new quiz for BritMos. This is one encompassing the entire spectrum of Brit cinema. From actors/actresses, directors, producers, to studios, film location. In fact, basicly, anything that comes to mind. You can use either a synopsis, biography or a screenshot. I will get the ball rolling.

    Name this Brit cinema icon?

    “They don’t call me Rockefeller, y’know! I don’t OWN Dawson and Whittaker's, y’know!”

    You mentioned "Which two film series made in the UK" but films made in the UK are often (or even usually) shown around the world so box office figures could apply around the world

    I was sarky as that member was being sarky to me. I am usually a calm person but seems to me there is a lot of criticism of the way these games are presented and run.
    I think you're looking to get barred. You've got very argumentative recently

    Straightforward if you had included mention of UK in the question

    I reactivated a dead thread. I do not see admin or mod next to your name.
    Don't get sarky. And it would be more polite to say that there hadn't been a post since 2 Oct & that's why you're reactivating what you consider to be a dead thread

    Overly technically detailed or not enough detail in the question. Which country/ies are you counting them in? . Wikipedia. Some of the films with the largest ever box office returns have been made in the United Kingdom, including the second and third highest-grossing film series. A perfectly straight forward question I would have notioned. perhaps a touch trivial but still one pertaining to the thread theme.

    Anyway, floor was open to either of 2 other contributors, you have to wait your turn (giving a correct answer or acknowledgement of open floor from previous successful contributor).

    I wonder what it is that Tom Howard is holding back in post 237?

    It looks like some kind of spooling machine rather than a special effect.
    I think it is a 35mm eight-perforation double frame horizontal Mitchell movement, what was used in the VistaVision and Technirama cameras.
