Friday Film: Jane Austen Fine Eyes Quiz

This quiz is extremely hard. Your success will be on how familiar you are with the Jane Austen films, and the actors and the characters they play. I could name only a few, and I must have seen all the films several times!

To Play:
Watch the video below and try to guess which character, actor and film the 75 pairs of eyes belong to.
Put your guesses in a comment.
Guess as many times as you wish.
For bonus points, try to guess which Jane Austen films the five dance songs - Old Fashioned Charm

Honestly, I just watched the 2009 Emma, and was not even particularly fond of it. Then again, it is my least favorite Jane Austen piece.

Mom Walds Place and Kristin, I will ask Miss Laurie to score your guesses! Thank you for playing!

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Thank you for playing! Vic asked me to total up your score and I'm glad to do it.
None of your guesses were completely wrong. Both guesses on the songs were correct. Twenty-four of your guesses were completely correct and nineteen were partially correct. Your total score is 120 points, good job! :)

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Mom Wald,

Four of your guesses were completely correct, four of your guesses were partially correct, six of your guesses were unfortunately incorrect and your guesses on the two songs were correct. Your total score is 29 points.

Vic said...

Thank you, Miss Laurie! I found the quiz so daunting that, ahem, I am remaining quiet!!

S and family said...

Wow! I found Hugh Grant but never found Colin Firth. I was surprised how many I recognize, but since I'm horrible with names, I won't even attempt a list. Thanks for the fun quiz!

Jean | Delightful Repast said...

Oh my, I did horribly on that quiz! Got perhaps a dozen points out of a possible 225!
