Europe Movie Locations Quiz

Jump to last reply

Since no quiz has been posted yet today, I thought I would try one of my own.

1. The Russian revolution epic “Dr. Zhivago” (1964) was primarily filmed in this country, ruled at the time by a well-known dictator and former ally of Mussolini. Bonus: The film included alpine footage from which Canadian national park as a substitute for the Urals.

2. Keeping to a Russian Revolution theme, “Reds” (1981), Warren Beatty’s retelling of the John Reed story, used this Scandinavian capital to stand in for St. Petersburg.

3. A dining hall in this British university town provided the setting/inspiration for Hogwart’s Great Hall in the Harry Potter films.

4. The huge downer film “Trainspotting” (1996) portrayed heroin abuse in Edinburgh slums, but primarily was shot in what other British city (hint: it’s not Milton Keynes).

5. The Mozart film “Amadeus” (1984) was primarily filmed at sites in this country, then behind the iron curtain, as substitutes for Vienna and Salzburg.

6. The Colin Firth film “Railway Man” (2013) showed scenes of which two famous bridges, both of which appear on the backs of different Scottish currency notes.

7. What 1960 Fellini film showed Anita Ekberg wading/strutting/posing/cavorting in the waters of Trevi Fountain?

8. “Argo,” the Ben Affleck film (2012), substituted this city for Tehran.

9. Although “The Sound of Music” (1965) exteriors were mostly filmed on location in Salzburg, the famous opening scene of Maria spinning on a mountaintop meadow, arms outstretched, with a helicopter borne camera zooming in as she peals out “The hills are alive…”, was filmed nearby above what popular German resort town.

10. The Normandy landing in “Saving Private Ryan” *(1998) was shot not in France, but on a beach in this country.
