The Holidays are upon us and it is time for an article from the Registry of Deeds that builds upon the joys of our holiday season. It is about time a writing that is light and not so serious is written in these “Good Deeds” articles. There can always be more of that in our day to day lives.
One go to article theme readers of “Good Deeds” may have noticed over the years has been trivia. There have been trivia questions about historical figures of Norfolk County such as the four Presidents of the United States born here in Norfolk County. There have been trivia challenges involving naming one of the 28 communities making up Norfolk County as the answer to some notable person who hailed from that community. The Norfolk County Registry of Deeds has seen its share of Hollywood filming which has taken place in and around the beautiful Registry of Deeds Building. There was an old television show “The Practice” starring actors Dylan McDermott and Michael Spada. Four episodes of this show were filmed in and around Dedham. “Ironman” Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall made use of the Norfolk Superior Court and the Registry of Deeds Building front pillars and steps in the film “The Judge”. Recently Rosamund Pike and Eiza Gonzalez used the books and beauty of the renovated Registry of Deeds Record Hall to film “I Care A Lot”. Rosamund Pike won a Golden Globe for her performance in this movie which can be seen on Netflix.
So I thought I would combine the Christmas Season, trivia and this link to movies to challenge the reader to some Christmas Movie Trivia.
