Can you recognize these Top 10 movies from the fall of 1979?

From Star Trek to rock musicals, it was a great season for film.

Grab some popcorn! We're in the year 1979, so it only costs $1.50. 

Summer blockbusters are fun, but any cinephile knows that autumn is when the real quality stuff hits screens. The fall of '79 offered up some true classics.

The movie QUADROPHENIA wasn't a rock opera. It wasn't even a musical.

10/10! Most of these were DUHS because the wrong answers weren't 1979! 9 is really DUH because the correct answer ts right there on the poster 3 times [not to mention we all saw the FX show with Sam Rockwell]!

I must really be dumb, then. #9 is the only one I missed! I got all the others right. I remember all the hype about "All That Jazz" at the time, but I never actually saw it. I just can't believe that I didn't notice the name "BOB FOSSE" in ALL CAPS on the poster they showed here!

Yep, he wrote, directed, and co-produced it! And really, Jolson's film was 30 years earlier!

Not really but sorta! The producers created a fictional character because they couldn't get the rights! Still a great movie!

1 or two of those I never saw the sting one and being there a couple I guessed on too but still got a decent score. LOL.
