19. Salome (1923. Of course, you don't mean the later Technicolour one... o_O)

Edit - New Testament. Probably wrong considering your new clue.

I considered Salome as well but discounted it as I couldn't see relevance to any last dance.

Mind you, I also discounted The Magic Box as it was a really obscure Indian film!

No, sorry.

I may be able to help further by suggesting that it's not who danced but what she performed with....

I'm afraid my monochrome memory struck again. I only checked on IMDB which shows B&W images of 'The Magic Box' starring Robert Donat, which was the one I had in mind. Anyway, the next quiz will be all silent movies, so I should be on safer ground LOL.

Thanks, I didn't know that. However, you are taking away the edge of uncertainty buried within my quizzes... :-rofl2

Indeed. When I'm checking on IMDB I press the 'End' key and then one press of the 'PgUp' key takes me to the Technical Specs area..

Ah, sorry about that - 'Movies with black & white screen-grabs on IMDB quiz' isn't quite as witty as your usual titles :( :p

So, that's the end of this one...next, (when I think of some questions) an all silent movie edition. I have tried to avoid ones that have been colour tinted...

Thanks Pete. I'm sure that if you put your mind to it you'll be able to find a silent film in colour.
