Crossword puzzle with word bank and solution based on the film noir classic starring Robert Mitchum and directed by Charles Laughton.
There are 27 clues. These are the names of characters, locations, and artists involved in creating the movie. To see the words used in the puzzle, download the preview file. This is the solution grid.
This resource/activity could be used as an in-class assignment or as homework, to help revise the text, or just for fun. It is a summary quiz, designed to be used after viewing/studying the movie. It's an exercise that works well for group/pair work. Students seem to love the puzzle format, and many don't even see it as work.
I've specifically written the clues to help students learn/remember key facts about characters and places, by including a lot of detail. In this way, it's not just a time filler.. it's an active learning tool.
