Seen about half.  Thought 2619 terrible (and too loud).

Not a fan of the music in the film? I rather enjoyed it.

Seen all of them, except maybe 2620.

2611 and 2612 I like very much. 2618 is very much watchable, if only for Al Pacino's performance.  2619 I can watch on occasion.

Believe it or not, I have never seen THE BLUES BROTHERS. Just scenes of it here and there but never the whole movie.

A lot of people consider it a classic. To me, it's watchable, but it wouldn't fall under my list of best movies of all time.

I think there are moments of absolute briliance in it. Ones that still make me belly laugh if something reminds me of them even if I haven't seen the movie in 30 years. But there are also long moments where I don't laugh. So, I'd grade it as somewhere between slightly above average to well above average.

Woah, was a new list posted that I didn't guess on? I definitely could have identified the last four, and I've seen all of them. I've also seen The Notorious Landlady, though having a good self-awareness of my guessing capabilities, I doubt I could have identified it from the still. So, I've seen a whopping five of these.

2616--"The Blues Brothers", I lived in Chicago when they made this film and some of my dance friends were extras.

2617--"Fedora", one of my favorite films for William Holden, one of my favorite actors with one of his favorite directors, Billy Wilder. Captures a very European style for a movie all about Hollywood.

2618--"Scent of a Woman", Stars Al Pacino in his Oscar winning role, one of my favorite actors who should have won two or three Oscars before this one.

Agreed. He was especially dynamic as Michael Corleone in THE GODFATHER films and as Sonny in DOG DAY AFTERNOON.

2625 Several times (my Mom knew Judy Holliday - Peter Lawford with her - one of 2 films she made with Jack Lemmon)

2627 - Saw it and its sequel (which won Newman his Oscar - only actor to win an Oscar for reprising a role)

2629 - Yes

2630 - Not sure (but, if it is Mel - I hate Jews - Gibson) I watched it before he showed his true colors

Waiting for cheat sheet!

2626 is fun and 2627 is hands down an time classic in my book.

2629 is watchable thanks to an electrifying performance by Lou Diamond Phillips.

2625 not quite a classic but still entertaining enough. 2624 was just okay.

The rest I'm not quite sure I've seen.

2622--"Suzy"is a mediocre Jean Harlow film that I got to see when it came out on DVD. It's claim to fame-- Cary Grant kinda sings one song. 

2623--WB's wartime benefit, "Thank Your Lucky Stars". Some stars sing and dance better than others, or not well at all. Of course, Bette was good.

2625--"It Should Happen To You"--One of Cukor's gems with Judy Holliday. Historically noted also as Jack Lemmon's feature film debut. BTW, Jack was quite funny. 

2629--"La Bamba"--Lou Diamond does a great job portraying an early rock legend, Ritchie Valens.

Started to post here yesterday before the cheat sheet was revealed, but I was too late into the night to finsih. Bedtime called. 

I've seen It Should Happen to You but couldn't identify it.

I've seen The Hustler and could identify it.

I haven't seen North Dallas 40 but could identify it

La Bamba I've seen bits and pieces of on pay cable when I had an infinite number of movie channels, but I never saw it the whole way through, so I won't count it as one I've seen. But I could idenitfy it.

Bird on a Wire I've never seen, but given the two stars, I think I could have identified it.

So, there are only two of these I've seen all the way through.

LA BAMBA is a very good musical biopic. It would make a great double feature with WALK THE LINE (2005).

Along with RAY and COAL MINER'S DAUGHTER. You might even want to throw in SWEET DREAMS and THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY in there as well.

My mom loves WALK THE LINE. I enjoy it too. We're big Johnny Cash fans.

Oh, I've also seen Thank Your Lucky Stars, alhtough it's been quite a while. Couldn't identify it from the photo. So, I've seen three from the most recent list.

Sometimes I use a less obvious photo. Like for THE SOUND OF MUSIC, I used a photo with Christopher Plummer and Eleanor Parker and deliberately did not choose one with Julie Andrews as that would be too "easy."

2637.   Looks like the 1967 Western HOUR OF THE GUN.

2640.   Looks like the 1988 comedy DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS.

Wish I was better at ID'ing these flix from the pix!  (But I'm not . . . ).  😜

Yes, those two are correct.

Not the first to post on this, I see, but here I go, augmented by the previous guesses already confirmed to be correct:

2634 looks to be a Tarzan movie ... with Van Johnson as some kind of slimy interloper? I don't know. I haven't seen it, whatever it is.

2638 is it Rollerball? Was Ernest Borgnine in Rollerball?  Looks like Borgnine and an actress at least half his age, like his pairing in The Poseidon Adventure, although possibly even more dramatic. I saw Rollerball many years ago. Reasonably uncertain this is it.

I've seen both Hour of the Gun and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

Well, I can confirm I've seen two of these, maybe three if my crazy Rollerball guess is correct.
