Film competition – part 3

Thursday, 15 September 2011

Another still from Jacques Tati’s Les Vacances de M. Hulot.

At first, Monday’s still stumped everybody! But then, to be fair to BTWT’s readers, it was from a rather uncharacteristic shot that only lasts a few seconds. A day later, the answers started rolling in. Gavin Whitelaw and Mike Winslow correctly identified the still as being from Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday. Above is another still with a typical incident from this very funny film. Gavin was first with the right answer, so he takes the point.

If you have not got a copy of Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday then you may be interested in buying the film. It has recently been digitally remastered by the National Film Institute and is available from Amazon UK for £10:93 (including delivery in the UK). Buying it by clicking the link below gives BTWT a small percentage of the proceeds.

Judging how well BTWT readers have coped with quite obscure films, the next still should produce dozens of correct answers. If you want to take part in our competition, and can identify the film from the still below, then post the answer as a comment as quickly as you can.

Today’s mystery film should be easy!
