Quiz of the Month – February 2015

The 87th Academy Awards ceremony will take place on Sunday, February 22, 2015.  Many motion pictures based on literary works have won Academy Awards and many more have been nominated but have lost.  As I mentioned in an earlier post, Turner Classic Movies (TCM) is broadcasting 31 days of movies that won or were nominated for Academy Awards.  Below you will find a list of 25 movies that are being aired on TCM.  Name the authors of the works the movies were based on.  For extra credit name some of the leading actors in the movies.  Some movies have been remade, so when considering cast members names, note the dates of the movies I have in mind.  You will find the answers on my Quiz Answers page.
