Episode 6 Scoreboard
And with that, the race is on! Mrs. Thuro doesn't know her Almodovar, thus Rhys and Buckle both make big gains and come within striking distance of the Trivia Queen of Series One.
Also quite happy to welcome Allison the Nerd Vampire to the game who made an impressive showing for her first entry by being the second person to email in!
It's anybody's ballgame right now, and something tells me next week's episode will egg on the race even more with a director our listeners know a bit more intimately.
Here are the results after six rounds, with everyone's point pickup for this episode listed in parenthesis...
Rachel Thuro 85 (0)
Rhys Bendeix-Lewis 65 (+10)
Andrew Buckle 64 (+20)
Courtney Small 38 (+6)
Duke 32 (+0)
Alison 18 (+18)
Shane McNeil 18 (0)
Jess Rogers 4 (0)
Andrew Robinson 3 (0)
Prior to directing, Almodovar worked for twelve years as an assistant at Telefonica (a Spanish phone company).
CARNE TREMULA was the last film that Almodovar acted in.
BAD EDUCATION was the last Almodovar film adapted from a book.
The silent film in TALK TO HER is called AMANTE MEGUANTE aka THE SHRINKING LOVER.
ALL ABOUT MY MOTHER ends with a stage curtain coming down; TALK TO HER begins with that same curtain going up.
"Volver" means "Return"
