Movie Quiz - 2

Movie Quiz - 2

I can’t promise you the Oscar or a plot in Hollywood
Or a tryst with Kevin Costner who starred as Robin Hood
But if you’re into movies and want to have some fun
Try and guess these Movie Stars who’ve had an awesome run

He played the Great Dictator and also played the kid
You’ll find him in the Gold Rush though in Modern times he hid
The Tramp who wore a bowler hat was loved by one and all
Silent in his movies and yet he did enthral

In a Streetcar named desire, you’ll spot this movie star
On the Water front the wild one drove his classic vintage car
In the last Tango in Paris – a role which one him fame
The Godfather won accolades as well as huge acclaim

Go ahead, Make my day Or Dirty Harry’ll scowl
The good, the bad and ugly might even make him howl
With a Million Dollar baby he escaped from Alcatraz
And silenced folks where Eagles dare with panache and pizzazz

In the heat of the night, he saw a patch of blue
While she sang to sir with love and he wondered what to do
He watched the lilies of the field which stretched towards the sun
And thought the best thing he could do was go for one long run

While you dated some goodfellas and the Father of the bride
I tried to find the Raging Bull who took you for a ride
Avoid the Taxi Driver who wont play by the rule
The gangs who roam the mean streets don’t like to play the fool

On a dog day afternoon Donny Brasco felt the heat
And called the Devil’s advocate who was beyond deceit
Scarface threatened Serpico who made a righteous kill
Was the scent of a woman that gave him one bigthrill

The hunt for red October from the Rock with Dr No
Proved the man who would be king was box office mojo
Though diamonds are forever Goldfinger always reigned
On his last crusades with Indie Jones, once more he entertained

I loved Shawshank Redemption and liked the power of one
Invictus and the Bucket list were also cool and fun
But if you want to kiss the girls and drive Miss Daisy back
Stop by in Last Vegas after seven at the shack


He thought if one flew over the Cuckoos nest at night
A few good men in China town would watch with sheer delight
The knight in shining armour knew that something’s gotta give
When Batman punched the crossing guard who didn’t have long to live

If you like the Man on fire, the Inside Man might smile
Unlike the bone collector who did seem quite hostile
He didn’t agree with Malcolm X and missed his flight to Rome
And reached too late on Training Day so had to go back home

If you burn after reading, Oceans 12 might do the trick
Though the men who stared at goats proposed to every pretty chick
They looked up in the air and cried “Oh brother where art thou”
And wondered about gravity while flying to Macao

The fugitive on Air force one watched Star Wars on his screen
While the raiders of the lost arc jumped high on the trampoline
In clear and present danger the blade runner was quick
To hide from every witness while their cameras went “click”

The mission was impossible but Jack Reacher tried hard
A Top Gun in the Firm he dodged and hoodwinked Scotland yard
Eyes wide shut he stretched and sipped his cocktail while fought
To win more risky business before he tied the knot

Seduced by Mrs. Robinson, the graduate was hooked
And Tootsie said that tickets for the Kramer show were booked
He could have gone for Papillon but Rain Man wasn’t keen
To meet the Midnight Cowboy who did not come out clean

The kick-ass Fight club was so cool, I liked it more than Troy
And though a river runs through it, it seemed just like a ploy
To meet Joe Black in Babel who loved his Moneyball
The Mexican was hiding with the Legends of the fall

Now for your final Movie Star –you have to guess this right
If not he’ll silence all the lambs and give you one big fright
He’ll wear the mask of Zorro but I strongly recommend
That you stay away from Hannibal until the very end.
