Test Your Film Knowledge with the Steven Soderbergh Obscure T-Shirt Guessing Game

Test Your Film Knowledge with the Steven Soderbergh Obscure T-Shirt Guessing Game

As we mentioned earlier, recently-retired director Steven Soderbergh has launched an odd new website hocking everything from tote bags to photos to the promise of Singani, a favorite Bolivian liquor of the Oscar-winner. Though there are many peculiar aspects of the site, one of the most intriguing appears in the “Threads” section. Here, Soderbergh describes a desire to wear film shirts that are more obscure in their origins than many of the products available at other sites. The 27 t-shirts available for purchase are his “attempt to address these issues,” and he even goes so far as to challenge fans to name one specific film that even he thinks is ridiculously out there.

Challenge accepted. Below you will find images of the shirts available at extension765.com. List your guesses in the comments section, and we’ll see who can earn the right to called “REALLY good” by Soderbergh himself. We’ll get you started — the New York Daily Inquirer is the newspaper a young Charles Foster Kane acquires in “Citizen Kane,” while Black Pony Scotch, per Soderbergh, is a nod to a brand of whiskey glimpsed on a table in Otto Preminger’s “Laura.”
