Trivia Tuesday: Name That City

I'm still recovering from the weekend, but I hope to share some fun anecdotes from the festival in the next few days. In the meantime, today is Tuesday, so you know what that means! Your challenge today is to name the city based on the descriptions below. Good luck!

1. 1990 Sydney Pollack film starring Robert Redford

2. 1975 and 1996 musical adapted into 2002's Best Picture Oscar winner.

3. Popular 70s/80s band known for its hit "More Than a Feeling."

4. 1993 Jonathan Demme film, nominated for 5 Oscars.

5. 2003-2008 NBC drama starring James Caan and Josh Duhamel

6. Emmy and Golden Globe-winning HBO historical drama airing for two seasons between 2005-2007

7. 2005 historical fiction film directed by Steven Spielberg, starring Eric Bana

8. 1942 classic film starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman

9. (town) 2004-2006 western-drama television series created, produced and almost entirely written by David Milch. (I also enjoyed playing blackjack at their $3 tables in 1999.)

10. 1975 Oscar-nominated Robert Altman film about music and politics.


As always, please leave your answers in the comments section and do not use the internet. In case you are wondering, we scored 9 out of 10 and are still kicking ourselves for missing #4.

Sorry for the late reply.

lacochran - No ? needed. Chicago & Casablanca are both correct.

Neena - 8 out of 10. Nicely done!

Nichole selected the correct Tennessee city for #10.

Should I leave the answer for #1 here or do you just want to look it up?

I think 1 is San Francisco for the movie Sneakers - one of my favorites.

Marc - Sneakers is a great movie, but that's not the answer for #1. We were looking for Havana.
