Name/Film Title Association Game


Recommended Posts

I was noticing over the weekend that if a star?s name is mentioned, one film title would immediately pop into my head. That?s what this ?title association? game is about. For example, if you see the name ?Bette Davis? and the first title that immediately comes into your mind is Dark Victory, then that is it. If you find yourself thinking, ?Bette Davis?Dark Vic --- no, The Letter,? don't list The Letter. Your immediate response was Dark Victory. I?m looking for immediate title association. It could be even a bad film. It?s just a fun exercise to see what you most associate with a star. Here are the stars, one producer and two directors. You list the VERY FIRST TITLE that you associate with them. Leave blank any you don?t know.

My own list. It surprises me when I realize what the first title is that pops into my mind for some of these people. Like why did Prince and the Pauper come immediately to mind when I think Errol Flynn, when I don't even care for the film that much. There are a few titles on here I wouldn't even consider watching again but still they popped first into my mind.

 

Did any of you find yourselves surprised with what you wrote down?

This is really an interesting exercise. So far, there is not one film that our minds all immediately associate with one star. I thought that maybe it would be Vivien Leigh in GWTW or Karloff in Frankenstein or Welles in Citizen Kane.

 

Keep them coming.
