Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information

Swensen. Anna was introduced as 'Anna Swensen' in 'Heaven to Betsy', and never referred to by last name again.
Fudge . Since Betsy, although thin as a stick, eats fudge by the gallon, this is a very big sacrifice.
Maria Callas. Julia is crazy about Grand Opera for most of the 'Betsy-Tacy' books. She goes to Minneapolis to hear Caruso and Farrar and even stays in the same hotel as them!
Six. Her name was, according to Gaston: 'Betsy Warrington Ray Humphreys Markham Edwards Hunt Brandish and so on.'
Eight D. Betsy did not seem to care that her sorority's name did not really mean 'Eight Devils', and didn't try to change it.

Dark blue. Isobel is the fashionable belle of 'Carney's House Party', and Carney has some qualms about inviting her.
Cab. Sam is a pirate, Tom is an Indian Chief, and Larry is still in California at this point in the book, so that leaves Tom.
Mrs. Gardenia. Lily Gardenia was one of the first woman lawyers in New York. Up until the plan for the devil to have a baby with a mortal woman, she had considered satanism to be "a harmless pastime." That was why the coven killed her.
She drugged one of her watchers. She hid the tranquilizers Dr. Sapirstein gave her and put them into Leah Fountain's coffee. She covered up the taste by saying how bitter this pot of coffee was.
All of the above (She could hear a baby crying through the walls, The coven members had her pump her breast milk into a clean cup, When she heard the crying, her breasts began to leak).
|When Rosemary no longer trusted the herbal drink Dr. Sapirstein prescribed for her, what did she drink instead?||Rosemary's Baby, the novel
Milk, cream egg, sugar and sherry. Nowadays, with salmonella so prevalent, no pregnant mother would even touch a raw egg!
All of the above (A sharp pain that went on for months, She began to eat her meat almost raw, She couldn't tolerate any salt).
Charles Grodin. John Cassavetes played Guy Woodhouse.
|Rosemary left her obstetrician, Dr. Hill, to be treated by Abe Sapirstein, a friend of the Castavets. What made Rosemary realize that Dr. Sapirstein was also a member of the coven?||Rosemary's Baby, the novel
His nurse complimented Rosemary on her new perfume. She said Rosemary's Detchema smelled so much better than "her usual" scent (tannis root) and that Dr. Sapirstein should change aftershave scents, too, since he often came to work smelling so strongly of tannis root that she couldn't bear to be near him.
"All of Them Witches" ("But Witches Believe", "Witches Every One", "Witches Among Us"). The title wasn't very fair to legitimate practitioners of pagan religions! From this book, Rosemary learned that Roman Castavet was really the son of Adrian Marcato. His was an anagram for "Steven Marcato."
Andrew John. She planned on naming a girl Jenny. Adrian Steven was the name Roman Castavet wanted to name him after himself and his father.
|When Guy told Rosemary he wanted to go ahead and have a baby, they planned a romantic evening for October 4, which he calculated to be her fertile day. What did they have for dinner?||Rosemary's Baby, the novel
Swordfish steaks, salad, stuffed mushrooms, carrots and chocolate mousse. Guy's favorite dessert was Horn & Hardart's pumpkin pie, but he forgot to buy it. During dinner, Minnie rang the doorbell offering pots of "chocolate mouse" (sic) that she'd made too much of. (Guess why!) Rosemary thought the mousse tasted as weird as the Boston cream pie had, so she covertly ditched half of it while Guy wasn't looking. As a result, she remembered many parts of what happened later that night. As a result of this question, I'm suddenly starving.
She killed herself. She jumped from the Castavets' window in the Bramford. Rosemary and Guy met the Castavets' after Teresa committed suicide. To thank the Woodhouses for being so kind over Teresa's death, the Castavets invited Guy and Rosemary for dinner. The food was awful and Rosemary thought the Boston cream pie tasted very, very odd.
|The Castavets offered Guy fame, wealth and success in exchange for his cooperation. What was the first thing they did for him?||Rosemary's Baby, the novel
Blind the actor who got the part Guy wanted. Roman claimed his father knew Mrs. Fiske, Forbes-Robertson, Otis Skinner, Henry Irving and Modjeska -- legendary theater people who all were dead before Guy was even born. The blinded actor was named Donald Baumgart, a name Guy made fun of (because he hadn't changed it as Guy changed his own).
A silver ball filled with tannis root. The tannis root smelled awful and Rosemary hid it, wrapped up in aluminum foil, inside her jewelry box. She didn't wear it until Guy made her feel guilty for hurting the old couple's feelings. The tiny sculpture of Teresa was part of Rosemary's nightmares.
|Roman and Minnie Castavet were Rosemary's and Guy's new through-the-wall neighbors. Who was living with them when the Woodhouses moved in?||Rosemary's Baby, the novel
Teresa Gionoffrio. When she introduced herself she said, "Don't bother trying to spell it because I can't!" Teresa and Rosemary agreed to do their laundry together, since both found the basement so creepy. (What do you mean, "Who's Julia Sugarbaker?")
Sherman Peden. Guy Woodhouse married Rosemary Reilly after she moved to New York. Merle Johnson is Troy Donahue's real name (and the one under which he appeared in "The Godfather II").
