[b]In what year was I born?[/b]

40 posts in this topic

Okay, I got this idea the other night as I was watching one of my favorite movies. I found that the movie was released the year I was born. Think you can identify the year of my birth by a list of some of the movies released that year? If you're interested, then give it a try!! The first to guess correctly can add a list of his/her own.

 

Okay, in no particular order, here goes . . .

 

 

Mister Roberts

Blood Alley

The Seven Year Itch

Oklahoma

East of Eden

The Trouble with Harry

Bad Day at Black Rock

Marty

To Catch a Thief

The Rose Tattoo

 

Not a bad year, movie-wise!!

 

I listed 10 movies from my birth year, but any one else should feel free to list as few or as many as you'd like!

1955! This might be fun, but you should know that there is already an age confessing thread in the General Discussions folder. Some will, and some won't, admit their age.

 

Films from my birth year include:

 

The Apartment, Elmer Gantry, Inherit the Wind, The Magnificient Seven, Psycho, Spartacus

 

Not a bad list either;-)

 

What year was I born?

path I mean no disrespect but I thought just got the impression you were older than the early 60s due to your love and knowledge of movies please don't take offense. I could look in my book but I'll venture a guess is it 1961?

Nope, and no offense taken, gwtw;-)

 

I didn't make up this game, I was merely its first participant. Since we haven't heard from owl, and you only missed it by one year, how about you share some films from your birth year?

Okay, I'm back. Couldn't get back sooner because my 4 month old granddaughter was here. She demands undivided attention. (And of course, she gets it!!)

 

I figured the most logical way to progress is for the person guessing the correct year to post the next list. Other than that, I didn't have any specific rules in mind. As long as the progression makes sense and we can keep up with it.

 

Oh, of course, path was right--1955!! BTW--The movie I was watching was Blood Alley. Just got it on DVD!

Yes, ML I was born in 1969. My mother had me in December and because of that I'm younger all the time like this my 36 year but I'm 35 and turn 36 at the end and then I'll be 37 all during my 37th year. Cleaver of my momma don't you think?

Shaina, 1978? That's not what I was expecting either! I was under the impression that you were much older, and I'll bet you thought the same about me - most people do.

Shainabluegirl, take a time out for a second and give me some badly wanted info. Where did you get your smiley face emoticon and how can you use it on a forum? I desparately want my own set of these cuties but haven't come up with where you can find them or where to put them once you do find them. Help?! Back to the topic at hand: Re: In what year was I born?.......... and I guess I'll throw my hat into the ring as well--in what year was I born?????
