Good evening. Sleepy, but can’t fall asleep? May we suggest a book before bedtime? You’re advised to stay away from thrillers–they have a tendency to keep one awake. However, some of the books that were a part of Hitchcock’s films had the potential to put their readers–or their readers’ victims–into a deep sleep. In fact, sometimes into an everlasting slumber, as you’ll find see when you delve into this week’s quiz.
Good luck, Mr. Thornhill, wherever you are…Take the Quiz!
(*The quiz title was inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s North By Northwest: “Something wrong with your eyes?” “Yes”, says the sunglass-clad Roger O. Thornhill (Cary Grant), “They’re sensitive to questions”. Locked up in the bed compartment aboard the 20th Century, Roger is asked by Eve if he is bored. “Don’t worry. I’ll catch up on my reading,” he replies.)
