The image you see below contains elements from ten different films. The theme is transportation (obviously!).

Here's how the contest works: The first unedited post that correctly names all ten films determines the winner.

Here's the prize: You'll get nothing and like it!

Don't send me e-mails or PMs, just post your guesses in the thread - if you think you know them all (or just want to help the others out). There is no time limit.

Good luck! This is intended to be a fairly easy group of shots.

I definitely don't know all 10, so this is just to help others I guess. :)

The easy ones (for me) are:

Planes, Trains & Automobiles
Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
Terminator 2 ?
Road Warrior (or Mad Max)

I'll never identify all of them, but I'll help out. Albert Brooks on the right there is from one of my favorites, Lost in America.

Heat
Terminator 2: Judgement Day
Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Lost in America
Planes, Trains & Automobiles
The Road Warrior
Thelma and Louise???
Easy Rider???

I can't figure out where the 'Frosty' van is from unless it's from Comfort and Joy or Trees Lounge, which I doubt...

Shot #10 (the one behind Albert Brooks' head) is too tiny and nondescript to be identifiable (by me anyway).

Just for clarification, the pickup truck and the white car on the right hand side are from the same film. It's not very clear, but the right side passenger in the truck is holding a paddle (total giveaway for somebody there).

Ahhhh...so what I thought was Easy Rider is actually Dazed and Confused.

I thought that the pick-up was the redneck with the gun from the end of "Easy Rider"

So where is the 10th shot?????...is it the little crouched figure in yellow on the far right?

The small, yellow figure on the far right is following the big rig... some energetic Rossini music can be heard playing. :)

I never would've noticed the small yellow figure, which I realize from Brad's clue is from Breaking Away.

I thought the Cinzano emblem on the truck would be the giveaway for that shot.

Your teamwork has allowed you to compile nine of the ten films. Who will be the person to name the tenth film and claim the title?

Right actor, Dave. Wrong movie.

I'll leave that round unresolved and go ahead and post the next round. It's a party and everyone is invited! I freely admit that a few of these are quite difficult, but I won't be as likely to cough up clues as I was in the first round.

Once again, the first unedited post that names all ten films earns the poster the title of grand master poohbah, king of all screenshot contests.

Congratulations Bill. I dub thee, "Sir Bill, Earl of Screenshottery"! :D

Thunderbolt and Lightfoot is the elusive final film from the first round. It has a few strange moments, but any Clint Eastwood or Jeff Bridges fan owes it to themself to watch this film. It's the directorial debut of Michael Cimino.
