A comprehensive set of questions covering the movie "Thirteen Days" about the Cuban Missile Crisis. 138 questions in all! The 138 questions are divided into two full sets of questions. One set is divided into files that address very specific timed portions of the movie, so if you show from the start to 25 minutes in, for example, you will have an assessment ready to go for just that portion of the movie. The other set is made up of general files that don't have time-stamps on them but cover approximately 1/4 of the movie each.
See the free preview file, which has 20 True/False, 11 Multiple Choice, and 1 Numeric Questions. This file is a general one that covers about the first fourth of the movie.
I have organized the files into "time-stamped" and "general" so that you have TWO complete sets of movie questions. You can use one set as quick assessments during the showing, and the other as a final assessment, and have confidence that the final test is not made up of the exact same questions students have already worked with.

ABOUT THE "time-stamped" files
The sections overlap a bit in order to accommodate various patterns of showing the movie over the course of several days.
Here is the breakdown on those 6 files, along with information on the questions:
CQ Section 1 = start of movie to 25:00 (6 questions: 5 T/F, 1 Mult Ch)
CQ Section 2 = start of movie to 38:00 (10 questions: all T/F)
CQ Section 3 = 25:00 to 1:10:00 (5 questions: 4 T/F, 1 Mult Ch)
CQ Section 4 = 37:00 to 1:26:00 (11 questions: all T/F)
CQ Section 5 = 1:26:00 to 1:49:00 (6 questions: all T/F)
CQ Section 6 = 2:05:00 to the end of the film (7 questions: all MC)
In all, the "time-stamped" files contain 44 questions designed to be used as quick assessments or reviews of specified portions of the movie.
ABOUT THE "general" files
These four files go in order through the movie and Part 1 covers approximately the first fourth of the movie, etc, but I don't have specific time-stamps on EXACTLY which minutes each file covers. Additionally, they may overlap a bit - that's what I mean by "general." The four files DO NOT each cover the entire movie, however.
Thirteen Days Part 1 CQ: 32 questions (20 T/F, 11 Mult Ch, 1 #)
Thirteen Days Part 2 CQ: 17 questions (12 T/F, 5 Mult Ch)
Thirteen Days Part 3 CQ: 21 questions (19 T/F, 1 Mult Ch, 1 #)
Thirteen Days Part 4 CQ: 24 questions (15 T/F, 8 Mult Ch, 1 #)
In all, the "general" files contain 94 questions.
Showing the movie in sections, you could use the time-stamped files one by one as you proceed through it. Then you could use the general files as a final assessment activity to measure what students now know about the Cuban Missile Crisis. This is in part why there are two sets of files. It gives you some choices about how to assess students and guarantees that they are not using the exact same questions after the movie that they answered during the movie.
--->Examview .tst so you can print tests out or use them with CPS/Examview electronic testing systems
--->Examview .bnk so you can combine the various question banks in any way you please to make your own tests (For example, combine one set of files to make a during-viewing paper/pencil worksheet and combine the other set of files to make a post-test.)
--->.rtf Microsoft Word and other word processors can open these files. The rtf files are perfect for making worksheets or adding other enhancements to the files.
