Just thought I’d let you all know what’s been going on with the Mystery Pic scores…
Out of 32 competitions, 23 have ended, with eleven films correctly identified.
Phil C is the runaway leader, with four rounds under his belt, whilst Eugene Byrne, Eva, James Barlow, John Serpico, Mat D, Nigel and Scunnert share the crowded second place rostrum with a single win each.
In addition there are nine other games still open (#023-028, #030-032).
Decode the picture and identify the film – place your answer in the comments.
PhilC nailed it with the second guess – it’s Nick Love’s 80s Costa Del Crime flashback The Business.
Rikki Coleman (Rhoda Griffis)
Vanessa Lembeck (Jennifer Beals) is found unconscious and in a pile of her own mess in actually-not-too-bad Grisham adaptation Runaway Jury.
Thanks to Audrey Horne in the comments for pointing out the ID error!
If you know what film this, kudos to you… Place your bets below.
Sorry folks, don’t think anyone’s going to get this – it’s Meatloaf vehicle Roadie (which is actually quite good).
Recognise the smile? If you know the film, add a comment below…
Phil just nailed it – it’s Joseph L Mankiewicz’s screen version of Anthony Shaffer’s cuckold mind game play Sleuth (that’s Michael Caine behind the mask).

Merry Christmas, NYC cop-style.
I love all the internet chatter around how the C4 explosives in the film are apparently sporting inauthentically coloured wrappers.
