Mistakes happen when you post most of the quizzes. Mick you like answering but you do not pose too many questions. So how about it. Why do some other members of this site not play the quiz? Rather a puzzle that.

No probs Baggers, i thought you may have been referring to Guns of Navarone but then got thrown out by thinking to deeply about the synopsis.
I did come back a few times last night to see if you had answered.
WW2 movie, Jude Law plays a young Russian soldier who becomes a legend during one of the biggest battles of the War.

Actually filmed twice in 1964 & 1998, it was the 2nd one you were referring to, had a much higher profile cast and was filmed in Northern Qld, so all the extras are actually Australians.

A tip Mick. If playing with Mike make the clues as remote as poss. He must have seen every bloody movie ever made. Correct Mike?

The Plumbers been and gone so i can play again. I think i was thinking about both of them. Das Boot though a German language film and have to watch with sub(pun there)titles is the best Sub movie ever made.

What has Will Wheaton done mate? Jerry O'Connell has a so so career..Corey Feldman was a junkie at one stage I recall reading. We all know what happend to River Phoenix. Could say Stand By Me was somewhat of a jinx film.
