Starring …

Find the correct film for each of the first two actors in each question (e.g. for Burt Lancaster and Elizabeth Taylor in Q1), but beware the possibility that one or two might actually be correct! There are two sets of questions, for Oldies or for Newbies – choose one set or the other as your task; mixing them might confuse you…
