  1. Oh, c’mon now…the ‘freedom of the press’ card was outstanding! And I was Sam in the first quiz, and a draw in the second (I had an ‘I don’t know’ for one of the questions). And of your video recommendations, without a doubt, ‘Roman Holiday’.

    And as for my pick for a romantic film, I think I’d go with ‘Notorious’. Or at least, the ending of ‘Notorious’.
