This is a very good trivia book and surprisingly a big book (about 600 pages). I have always been a classic movie buff and watch a lot of old movies and know a few things about them. But I have to say most of these questions are just way toooo difficult and hence one star off! I just want to be able to get a few of them right on my own so to boost my confidence a bit!! Regardless of that, if you are a fan of old movies and want to know more, get this one.

HASH(0x9dca23a8) out of 5 stars "Tough Movie Trivia" for $1,000, Alex! Feb. 11 2012
By Hal Jordan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an entertaining book. It consists of short (one page) accounts of different movie decades, movie actors, and movie genres accompanied by 4,000 multiple choice trivia questions. The text is interesting, although most of the material will be familiar to movie buffs. But, man, are the trivia questions hard. Here are a few examples (all found on the same two-page spread, so I didn't hunt around for particularly hard questions):

"What is the name of Rudolph Valentino's second wife?"

"In what year was George Marshall born?"

"At the age of thirteen, Lupe Velez was sent to live in a convent located in which U.S. state?"

"Who played Anna May Wong's husband in 'Bits of Life' (1921)?"

"In how many Laurel and Hardy shorts did Jean Harlow act?"

I consider myself a fan of old movies, but I had no clue about the answers to these questions. There are about 10 or 11 questions per page and I would be doing well if I could answer one or two questions on a page. In many cases, I had never even heard of the movie or actor being asked about.

Still the book is a fun read and is illustrated with a good number of neat black and white photographs.

One final point: It took me some searching to find who wrote the (non-question) text in this book. Robert Osborne -- the host of TCM -- contributes a forward and his name is on the cover, but he didn't write the text. The next to last page of the book indicates -- if I'm interpreting it correctly -- that Frank Miller, a professor at Georgia State, wrote either most or all of the text. It's kind of ironic that in this era of hyper crediting in movies -- even the guy who brings the director a ham sandwich during a break gets his name in the end-of-movie credits -- this book makes obscure the most important credit a book can have -- the name of its author.

HASH(0x9dca25f4) out of 5 stars Fun Fun Fun ! Dec 8 2011
By Raymond Salazar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is chalk full of fun and interesting information about ALL kinds of movies. The chapters begin with a "Spotlight On..." essay with a short "quiz" on what you've just read. Lots of obscure trivia as well as the expected. The multiple choice format is perfect for those long drives- two people required. A great (big) stocking stuffer ! Hours of fun.

HASH(0x9dca25b8) out of 5 stars Very hard! Jan. 8 2012
By minda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Beautiful book! My daughter is a huge movie nut and this item was on her list. I was very pleased with the book at face value and the questions are great but very, very hard. It is fun to play trivia with this book but sometimes a little disheartening because it seems most of the questions are so so hard. Anyway, it seems that way to me. You learn a lot, though, I guess!

HASH(0x9dca290c) out of 5 stars Lots Of Stuff: Too Much? July 29 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Informative, comprehensive volume. Not set up to use for TRIVIA, but packed with movie info. Might have been written in a more interesting manner. I'm a big fan of TCM, and love the Robert Osborn tid-bits on TV. This needed more of that.
