“Shine” directed by Scott Hicks, goes with “The Beverly Hillbillies.”

Some films have to match Forest Whitaker and Berry Gordy (Mahogany).
Forest Whitaker should go with The Cabin in the Woods

I think I missed that Cruising is wrong. I thought SSS might have gotten this one.

Hint: It's an Italian film.

That fees up Benji and Camp.

And Quentin Tarentino, director of Hateful Eight, is at the vanguard of the new Camp.

I'll take it, but there' a director on the list who's even more associated with camp.

I just realized that it wouldn't work anyway.

Camp isn't the title, it's the director. It would have to be Benji.

Have we used Hateful Eight at all yet?

To make it a little easier to see, what we haven't used at all are:

11. Benji - directed by Joe Camp
25. The Hateful Eight - directed by Quinton Tarantino
70. Anatomy of a Murder - directed by Otto Preminger
100. All the President's Men - directed by Alan J. Pakula

Also we have used 18 movies twice, so there should be two more.

Polyester is pretty campy.

Henry V could go with Tarantino, since Quentin literally means "the fifth."

Not sure how those last two would connect, though.

Two of these form a match. It involves a principle already used in two other matches

Two need to be paired with movies that are already paired.

This one especially pleased me because Preminger was considered particularly hateful.

I thought I responded to this.

Mr K is correct, EVEYTHING by John Waters is camp.

We may be done ...

*13. COCKTAIL directed by Roger Donaldson.

Sam Donaldson reported on the Saturday Night Massacre, which is a key element to 100. ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN

Good job!

Here are the ones I intended that you didn't get:

Ted Post was intended to go with All the President's Men

William Wellman was actually billed in his movies as William A. Wellman - which was intended to go with The Scarlet Letter

Scarlet Letter director Victor Seastrom was intended to be another match for Pelle the Conqueror

And the Samuel Fuller match was unintentional.
