I did pretty badly but still scored better than half the people who took this. I guess most people don't know directors very well.

Also I was very pleased to see that "Shamalamadingdong" was accepted for the second answer. Were you following my lead? I made that an acceptable type-in on one of my own quizzes...

I thought I was the only one that called him shamalamadingdong :)

I'd only heard of 7 of them so I guess I don't know my directors very well :(

This was an issue of recall versus time.

Orgy of the Dead was directed by Stephen Apostolof/AC Stephen. I believe Ed Wood did the screenplay for it.

10/22 but pleased to see 5 of my answers were among the least guessed.

John Woo was a little unfair. I guessed "Wood" for Ed Wood and John Woo filled in automatically. I think I would've gotten it anyway, but it might be worth changing one of them.

Maybe change Cameron Crowe too, he's also on the Quiz #3.

Barry Levinson (Rain Man, Diner, etc.) could get some love.

Looks like there aren't many, but nice to see you found one woman to include as well.

22/22. Hard? Ha!
Level 65
Dec 11, 2015
I did poorly as a reult of the fact that I don't watch the movies and the only directors I can name are Hitchcock, Spielberg, Cameron, Tarantino, Kubrick and Michael Bay.

Scorsese? Nolan? I would hope you've at least seen their work, even if you didn't realize it...

That seems half the battle here. Many of these I've seen, but the director just isn't usually something that sticks in the mind for most people, including myself.

Nolan who? Ryan?

not very helpful to know for this quiz though as none of these are here which is I think the OPs point

Difficult but excellent quiz. Everyone once and a while, you have to have one that humbles the most cocky. Well done.

Found this one considerably harder than the first 3! It's a great memory exercise though and I wanted to beat myself once I saw the answers because at least half the ones I'd missed I should have known perfectly well.

Ugh. Coffee And Cigarettes is the most mind numbing waste of an eclectic cast ever recorded. Great talents throwing out predictable, dull lines in earnest.

"Orgy of the Dead". Sounds like one of my family reunions.
