All I know is I was doing your (wonderful) quiz, and at the same time talking to Purple Fan on MSN (She is Canadian). I said "Name a province of Canada" and she said "Manitoba"
That was it really. (This may go down as most riveting trivia fact of the week,eh?)
Anyway it was a lovely quiz, again Howie, thanks...

Round 17/Monday

1. Bobby Kennedy and his wife Ethel had 11 children together, 7 of which were boys. Pick one of Bobby/Ethel's sons.
2. "Jelly Belly" has 50 official flavors for its jellybeans. Pick one of them that tastes like an alcoholic beverage/mixed drink OR a variety of coffee.
3. Name a host, past or present, of "Jeopardy", "Wheel of Fortune" or "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" (USA versions).
4. Select an opponent that boxer Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini had a title fight with in 1981 [there are 6 of them to pick from].
5. The 1939 classic "Gone With The Wind" is generally recorded with Victor Fleming as its Director which is definitively inaccurate. George Cukor started it, Fleming did most of it, and Sam Wood finished it. I'm looking for a scene which Cukor directed that made it to the final 'cut' of the movie. He only filmed 33 minutes of footage and 17 of it managed to survive the editing process. Note: No need to get too specific about the scenes (unless you want to ) - there are only 8 and I'll know which one you chose with a brief description.

This will close by Thursday sometime. Need any help, feel free to ask, especially on (maybe) #5. It may look like mud to find but, trust me, it really isn't. Anyone who has ever looked up a "who was in what movie?" question is already familiar with the site where this info can be found.
