Quiz of the Month – February 2013

The 85th Academy Awards presentation will take place on Sunday, February 24th, so I decided to see if you can recall some lines from some famous movies that were based on books, and plays.  Here’s your mission – should you choose to accept it:  Name the film the quote is taken from, the work the film was based on, and the author of the work.  Free of charge I’ll throw in the year the movie was made and the year the book or play was published.  Find the answers at Quiz Answers.
