It's not uncommon for actors to take all kinds of odd acting jobs early in their careers.

A few films hold up just as well as when they were first released while others are remembered more for what they did wrong than what they did right.

6/12 Some of these movies I've never heard of. My older sister took me to a theater to see the Blob when I was about 7 years old (early 60's, the movie had been out for a while)...that movie gave me the creeps for a long time!

You can go back, reload the page and do the quiz again. I've had some "screen jumps" in the past that made me accidentally click the wrong answer myself.
