Missed The Great Escape (never saw it) and The Graduate (think I watched most of it, but it was a long time ago). But I did get the 7 Year Itch and Goldfinger in spite of never seeing either of those, either.

Wow, you've GOT to see The Great Escape! Other than featuring 2 American POW's (McQueen & Garner) instead of Aussies in an attempt to make the film more appealing to American audiences, they stayed very true to how the whole escape went down. Oh yeah, and James Coburn's attempt at an Australian accent was cringe-worthy, but still, it's a must-see movie, IMO.

I really liked the Great Escape, too. The first half was a little like Hogan's Heroes, but the last half was serious. And there is an abundance of great actors in addition to those already mentioned - Charles Bronson, Donald Pleasance, David McCallum, Richard Attenborough, Gordon Jackson... I was never as impressed with The Graduate as others are. I am glad I saw it once, but I could watch the Great Escape over and over.

^ Same here. I simply love "the Great Escape" and cry each time as David McCallum dies. Especially poignant since he lost his wife (Jill Ireland) to Charles Bronson during the making of the movie.

There are several on here I've never seen, either - Anchorman, 300, Fight Club, Office Space, Basic Instinct, and A Christmas Story. I watched The Big Lebowski just because it appears so often in these quizzes. It was fun, although not as appealing to a grandmother as some of these others. I like British period films, anything by Jane Austen, musicals, dramas, romantic films, etc. Not too many chick flicks on this list, but still a good and fun mix.

I've finally seen A Christmas Story. It was a fun movie, but I'd still like to see some new films added to the movie quizzes such as Steel Magnolias (SO many memorable scenes and lines), Sense and Sensibility, Fried Green Tomatoes, Love Actually, The Reader, etc. I would have added The Englishman who Went Up a Hill but Came Down a Mountain to that list but I'd guess the title makes it too long for a quiz. (I realize the phrase "chick flick" is no longer politically correct so I'll just call them "movies that appeal to me, a retired grandmother.")

I think it catches flame before it turns into the mockingjay wings. Not 100% sure

You guys are right about the dress catching fire (lol) and the audience applauding, but the clue in this quiz says a red dress, and she wears a white dress in the second film, which later turns into the mockingjay color.

I agree with Jacktheguy because it was her wedding dress. And yeah, it was totally in Catching fire. RIght before the Quarter Quell.

It's been a long time since I saw it. I was trying "Never Say Anything", "Say Something," but I just couldn't get the correct title. I saw several of these but the right combo of words just wouldn't flow from my brain.

Some great choices and movies. And I decide to complain anyway: it seems there are better iconic scenes in both Lebowski and Fight Club.

I'd say the scene in Fight Club is pretty darn iconic; but, every scene in Fight Club is iconic. The Big Lebowski one maybe less so but it was at least memorable.

Missed the Great Escape because I couldn't place it, and the Hunger Games, because I've never seen it. I feel like that's the cultural phenomenon that marked when I passed into middle age and lost touch with pop culture. Never saw the movies. Never read the books. Don't really feel the urge to do either.

I'd give Anchorman a 7/10. But it's one of those movies that is just so ridiculously quotable. Other examples: The Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, The Big Lebowski, The Princess Bride, etc...

I don't think so. "PC Load Letter" is an error message from the old HP printers. I remember thinking how hilarious that scene was, because I remember seeing that same error message on my old printer and getting just as angry about it.
