1.  What movie is the picture from?

2.  What movie is this quote from?

Hello, hello, York? I want you to get twenty-four B-25's and volunteer crews down to Eglin Field as soon as you can. The job'll take 'em out of the country for about three months. Tell 'em it's a secret mission. They won't know where they're going until they get there. Thats's right, volunteers. tell them they're not to talk to anybody. That's an order!

3. What movie is this?

 This is the 1939 version of the oft-made action/adventure film.  Obviously it is considered to be best version.  It is based on the novel by Percival Christopher Wren.  The book was aimed at the teenage boy in all of us and the movie puts this to film.  It was one of the first movies to link war and adventure.  But in an entertaining twist, the book and film add a dash of mystery.  It explores the themes of loyalty, duty, and honor.  The movie was a big hit and helped launch the subgenre of the French Foreign Legion film.  It is unique in that it features four actors that would subsequently win Oscars as Best Actors or Actresses (Cooper, Milland, Crawford, and Hayward).  Interestingly, considering that line-up, the acting honors go to Brian Donlevy as the sadistic Markoff.  He was nominated for Best Supporting Actor.
