Random Factoid #295

19 05 2010

Yesterday, in my history class, we played a game based on guessing themes from movies. ┬áThe tunes ranged all the way from “Gone with the Wind” to “Avatar.”

My group got 29/40 (73%) but that still wasn’t enough to be top dog in my section (31/40) or in all the classes (34/40).

Here are some of the themes that slipped us up – AKA I didn’t know them:

“Ben Hur”

“Breakfast at Tiffany’s”

“The Bridge on the River Kwai”

“Out of Africa”

Shamefully, I missed the themes of four movies I had seen – “Batman,” “Forrest Gump,” “The Last of the Mohicans,” and “The Terminator.”
