1.  What movie is the picture from?

2.  What movie is this quote from?

"And what are you? So full of hate you want to go out and fight everybody! Because you've been whipped and chased by hounds. Well that might not be living, but it sure as hell ain't dying. And dying's been what these white boys have been doing for going on three years now! Dying by the thousands! Dying for *you*, fool! I know, 'cause I dug the graves. And all this time I keep askin' myself, when, O Lord, when it's gonna be our time?"

3.  What movie is this?

 It was directed and produced by John Wayne.  He did not intend to star in his directorial debut, but the studio refused to back the project without Wayne starring.  Wayne deserves a lot of credit for overcoming every obstacle to finish a project that was obviously important to him.  He assembled a good cast and did a competent job as director.  He also put a lot of his own money into it and did not recoup his investment.  The movie did not do particularly well at the box office but did get Oscar nominations for Sound, Cinematography, Editing, Score, and Song.  The set took two years to construct and looks more authentic than the original.  


  1. 1. Breaker Morant
    2. Glory
    3. The Alamo

    The first two I am more sure of than the last one, but John Wayne didn't direct that many movies so it's a good bet.

  2. I agree with the above. Breaker Morant is one of my favorite movies.

  3. Wasn't sure about #1 but Breaker Morant would have been my guess. 2 & 3 I knew...

  4. All are correct! In the Breaker Morant image, note the striking morning photography. The light is quite lovely, and among other production qualities, helped convince even South African viewers that the film was shot on location and not in Australia (as indeed it was). Edward Woodward was never better.


Please fell free to comment. I would love to hear what you think and will respond.
