Quiz of the Month – May 2014

Many movies that are based on books take the name of the book as the title of the movie, but some movie titles have little or nothing in common with the titles of their source material.  So if you want to read the books that were the sources for Goodfellas, Die Hard, It’s a Wonderful Life, and Mean Girls, you will have to do a little research.

Below are the titles of 30 works that were turned into movies.  Your mission, should you accept it, is to name the movies.  You can find the answers on my Quiz Answers page.
