If you heard the latest installment of my Friday afternoon radio program on Hood College’s exclusive online radio station, “Blazer Radio,” there’s another trivia contest in store for fellow listeners everywhere.
Classic Film Trivia Quiz #1: On the Sept. 23rd edition of “Yours Truly, Chris Hamby,” the following question is related to one of the hit films of 1934 (which the blog writer /disc jockey is currently watching with several friends of the Matinee in the college’s “Reel Journalism” class). Here is the question:
What 1934 Frank Capra comedy was the first motion picture to win all five major Academy Awards?
-Capra’s screwball comedy featured Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert.
-It won five Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Actor (Gable), Best Actress (Colbert), Best Director (Capra) and Best Screenplay (Robert Riskin).
-This was the film that helped put then-poverty row studio Columbia Pictures on the map.
Prize: A Blazer Radio tote bag!
Know the answer? Enter online at the comments section of “Silver Screen Reflections,” answering via Twitter (using @chrishambyfilms or @blazerradio) or through my e-mail address (email@example.com). The winner will be announced on this Friday’s edition of “Yours Truly, Chris Hamby.”
Best of luck to all!
Be sure to listen to “Yours Truly, Chris Hamby” (one of many fine radio programs on Hood College’s exclusive online radio station, “Blazer Radio”). An hour filled with groovy music, interesting facts/tidbits about classic and cult film (along with TV shows), company/conversation and special guests (depending on time and availability of guests)!
