Overtired, I literally have no idea how you made this quiz (or any of your quizzes, they're all amazing), but I think you just blew all your competition out of the water! Nominated!

Did you make these silhouettes yourself. I had a similar idea to do for Anime but worried about it getting down due to copyright issues.

Great quiz as always (。•̀ᴗ-)✧

Half I traced from pictures, by hand or with the trace bitmap tool. Others I found from free svg/fan art sites and adapted if needed. (Most look traced too.) As far as I'm aware it's OK. This cartoon silhouettes quiz has been up since 2016.

I only got it because it is a classic 80s movie after all, so I thought, might as well give it a try. I got lucky.

It was the last one I got. I kept thinking it was a manatee, then it dawned on me that it was a car.

Despite thinking it was from the 90s, I typed Shawshank Redemption first. Double-checked my spelling. Then looked more closely at the silhouette and recognized Willem Dafoe, not Tim Robbins. Great quiz, great selections!!!

How do you recognize ANY actor from just that silhouette?

Well, you can't recognise the face but it's the most famous image of the film and has been on pretty much every poster and home video cover for it, including in silhouette.

It's fine that it isn't accepted because the movie is from the late sixties, but I was convinced that the silhouette from Platoon corresponded to the final scene of The Planet of the Apes.

It’s sad that only 1 in 5 people know Platoon. It’s such an iconic movie and that’s an iconic image. If you haven’t seen it, go and watch it now!

My best guess was Charlton Heston at the end of Planet of the Apes, but that wasn't the 80s.
