From All the Presidents Men to Saturday Night Fever, the 1970s produced some great movies. This quiz invites you complete the titles of the decade’s top films.

We’ll give you the first few words of the title and it’s your job to add the rest. For example, “One Flew over the Cuckoos…….”. There, of course, is only one right answer but have a laugh too. If you want to shout out, “One flew over the Giant Elephant” – go for it! Who knows, it might have been on the table once.

Quizzes are always great fun, and this one taps into memories of visiting the cinema and watching these greats. Enjoy with just one person or in a group.
