These maverick questions were made up, thrown, branded and run in here by OWDR contributor, Danny Ramblin’ Jack O’ Connell. Some are just smooth and easy, like a nice spring ride. Some of ‘em are stubborn, mean and nasty, like an old range cow under a cedar tree on a stormy late fall roundup. Just read ‘em up and decide for yourself which is which. Give it a good try before you go to the Movie Answers page.
