Cool quiz, but Jaws is not set off the coast of Maine. The book is set off the coast of Long Island and the film was shot off the coast of Martha's Vinyard in Massachusetts. I got the answer correct anyway due to the clue, but still, Jaws has nothing to do with Maine.

Locals in the movie are Islanders. Brodie admits he's NOT an Islander. The movie centers around the effect the shark has on the local population. Nobody in Massachusetts is called an Islander. Only Long Islanders are called Islanders. That's why the professional hockey team took the name Islanders. The movie may have been filmed in or around Massachusetts waters, but the story centers on a Long Island community. Should a quiz about Casablanca mention anything about Flagstaff, AZ, since that's where the film was shot?

Don't tell that to any English speaking person who lives on an island anywhere, like Hawaiian Islanders. Long Island's not so special it can claim a common word as its own demonym over every other island on earth.

Sorry pweent. At least anecdotally, I'm with QM. Never heard of M, 9, 10, Ben, Ran, Heat, Love, or 1776 (though I could guess what a few of them might be about). 8MM got fair exposure in the US, but I couldn't tell you what it was about, and 42 I think was the Jackie Robinson movie.

I'm sure QM knows there are others that could potentially be on here.

42 is the Jackie Robinson movie that came out a few years ago. Not very good. Heat is, by far, the best-known of that lot. It's a Michael Mann movie from the 90's, starring Al Pacino and Robert De Niro. It did well at the box office, and it's an awesome movie. Not sure why it doesn't show up on cable these days. I know some of the others pweent mentioned, but I'd deem them too obscure for the quizzes.

Heat was quite a hit. I'd agree about others sadly not being so well known. M and If... are must see classics.

?? I've heard of all of those movies except I think for "Love." One is a famous film starring Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro. One was a big-production Nick Cage vehicle. One a famous film with Dudley Moore and Bo Derek. Another starred Harrison Ford. Not exactly super obscure.

Anyone who wants to see the best of these movies and doesn't mind subtitles should seek out Ran, Akira Kurosawa's incredible take on King Lear in feudal Japan. I was lucky to live near a civic cinema which screened such films when it came out in '86. Wonderful.

Define "nobody". There are a LOT of good movies in that list. M (starring Peter Lorre) is a masterpiece.
