So, how did you get on? Lots of people wrote Young Rajah rather than The Son of the Sheik for 15. I say that’s a good punt – so you score half a mark for that. You also get half a mark for The Cameraman for 25. I’t’s all about the order of the emojis. And kudos to everyone who pointed out that The Goat could also be The Kid!

  1. This was a lot of fun. I would also say that “Cops” could also be “Police.” I guess it’s another one for the Keaton fans and the Chaplin fans to fight out amongst themselves!

  2. Thanks for this quiz. Frustrating but fun! 🙂

    I think I didn’t get some as I thought the clues were too obvious others I misread the moji. for example – I didn’t recognise no 2 as being a “circle”, I thought it was a button! >.<

    Anyway, congrats to the winners and well done Silent London for putting this together! 🙂
