10 out of 11. And the 1989 movie The Wizard has nothing to do with magic. It's basically Rain Man for kids and a big commercial for Super Mario Bros 3. That's the only reason late GenXers and early Millennials like me watched that dull, piece of garbage movie.

9 out of 11. Sometimes you just pick the one that you've never heard of. Did that on 7, 8 and 11 was a pure guess. #5 knew it wasn't the other two since Timothée Chalamet was in Dune and Matt Smith in Dr. Who and other movies.

9/11! missed 2 & 3! You confused me with duplicate answers on 3! Bonus Questions: [1]What Role did Frank Morgan play in Kansas? [2]Who played the title role in 4? Hint: He's a well-remembered singer who died too soon!

He played the fake crystal ball reader who convinced Dorothy to go back home rather than run away. He appeared at the very end of the film as well, playing the same character, checking to see if Dorothy made it back home all right.

Well, I thought of him as the medicine man because he had one of those vehicles!

4 of 11. No wizardry here! I was only sure of one answer and got lucky guesses on 3 others. After I aced through the Jimmy Buffett quiz, I'm back to my journey on the Walk of Shame!!
