Mother of mercy, is this the end of Film Quiz Friday? Nope, but this week’s film’s quiz does cover some movie characters’ famous last words.


Try three issues of Film Stories magazine – for just £1: right here!

This week’s selection of 30 movie-related questions includes a pleasantly morbid quotes round about the last things movie characters say before snuffing it. Personally, I’m hoping to go with something memorable, like “Hey everybody, watch this”, but whether it’s singing Daisy Bell as my diodes go out or uttering Rosebud to give some journalist a tough time with their post-mortem profile, the movies set us lots of other terrible examples.

Once you’ve completed all three rounds, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. This is just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 30 this week!) and send any other lovely feedback. Non-lovely feedback is also welcome, but if you strike me down now, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine…

We’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe, but can you name each of these movies from one of its character’s last words before dying, and the year it was released?
