This was my first Schmidt brand puzzle and boy what fun was this to put together! After taking deep breaths trying to sort the puzzle into meaningful piles (faces, body part, words, edge pieces-which at times I wasn't seeing any which gave me momentary panic, etc.) as I do with any 1000 piece puzzle I got to work. Oh what a joy and memory throwback experience it was! For most of the pieces it was exciting to come across a piece and remember who's face it was-be it actor or director. You could not mistake Daniel Craig's pout or Tarantino's profile to name a couple. It was funny at times especially when I grabbed almost 4 or 5 "crotch" pieces in a row and then it was like oh, who's crotch is this? Oh, ok it's James Dean, John Wayne, etc. You'll get the full gamut of films here ranging from black and white classics all the way to 007, Marvel, DC, and Star Wars movies. As for the puzzle quality itself, there were a variety of puzzle piece sizes, good thickness, great image quality, avg puzzle piece size, no question where pieces go, and has a semi-gloss finish. Scmidt is now one of my favorite brands!
Black and white is a challenge. Great fun and good memories.
This puzzle was challenging but not so hard that we ever felt it was impossible. We had fun naming the various movies and actors and directors that were on the puzzle. Thanks, Galaxy- this was a good one.
