Popcorn Pop Quiz: Greatest Movie Performances

Popcorn pop quiz

Premiere put out a list of the greatest movie character performances of all time in 2006. Of course, the list is concocted by Premiere, so it is based on their own opinions, but let’s turn this into a game. All you need to do to win this PPQ is to put the following three titles in the correct order they appear on Premiere’s list.

Which one is spot #8, which is spot #47, and which is spot #70?

Jack Nicholson as Randle Patrick McMurphy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975)

James Stewart as George Bailey in It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)

Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

– You can answer by commenting here, but remember, someone’s answer you see just may be wrong.
– This is the opinion of Premiere magazine. You may not agree with them. I for one don’t…
– Don’t cheat! Trust the answer that comes to you. “Just follow your heart. That’s what I do.” (Napoleon Dynamite)

  1. And the winner of the Popcorn Pop Quiz is…. Lisa MacCallum! And for those of you w ho know she is my sister, this is definitely not what Jack Black would call “a little nepotizzz.” She won it on her own merit. Congratulations Lisa. I may just take advantage of where you live, however, and just give you the popcorn instead of mailing it.

    • Ugh, what was I thinking? Thanks David. Here is the answer:

      #8 James Stewart as George Bailey in It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)
      #47 Jack Nicholson as Randle Patrick McMurphy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975)
      #70 Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

      And just FYI, #1 was Veto Corleone from The Godfather.
