Round 16 "Katharine Hepburn"
12 dazzling players!

1.) Kate won an Oscar for her stirring portrayal of Queen Eleanor in "A Lion In Winter" (1968) - a Queen twice, no less (married and divorced to Louis VII of France and then in quite a mixed-up mess with that rascal Henry II). In the midst of much chaos and assorted not-so-nice varieties of things, Eleanor managed to give birth to a total of ten children. I'm just needing the name of one of her sons or daughters, please.

For 10 points:
Marie, William, Geoffrey, Eleanor.
For 5 points:
Richard (3), Matilda [or Maud] (3), Alice [or Alix] (2).

The others were Henry, Joan and John.

2.) Women of breeding, good taste and a fierce desire for knowledge/independence have been known to attend one of "The Seven Sisters", a group of liberal arts women's colleges. Hepburn was an alumnus of Bryn Mawr but there are six more of "The Seven Sisters" universities. Pick one, if you would.

For 10 points:
Barnard, Mount Holyoke.
For 5 points:
Wellesley (3), Radcliffe (3), Vassar (2), Smith (2).

3.) Katharine was at her best in the film "The African Queen" (1951) and being a prim and proper missionary stuck on a boat in wartime Africa with the unyieldingly annoyed (and mostly annoying) Charlie Allnut turned into one of the most unlikely but endearing film romances in history. While she had no business with any of this refreshment, Charlie liked his gin. His travelling companion, in a bible-thumping snit, poured it out piously . Too bad, really. According to "Cocktail Times" there are 23 Most Popular mixed drinks that can be made using gin. Select one of those....[you may find two lists there - pick from the "Popular" list and not the "Classical" one].

For 10 points:
Slingarce Sling, Boomerang, Red Gin, Queen's Favorite, Negroni.
For 5 points:
Bermuda Rose (3), Lily Pond (2), Pacific Breeze (2).

15 others on the list, including the Gin & Tonic, Tom Collins and, of course, the Martini .

4.) Hepburn did an early film called "Alice Adams" in 1935. The critics loved it and loved her performance, too. The novel the film was based on was written by Booth Tarkington, who had a good body of work. Name another novel by Booth that has a man or woman's FIRST name in its title, OK? Note: if it has a first and surname in it, that'll work, too.

For 10 points:
"Seventeen: A Tale of Youth and Summertime and the Baxter Family, Especially William", "Presenting Lily Mars".
For 5 points:
"Mary's Neck" (2), "Penrod and Sam" (2), "Kate Fennigate" (2), "Gentle Julia" (2), "Claire Ambler" (2).

5.) Kate was nominated for a whopping 12 Academy Awards as Best Actress and won four of them (none of which she picked up in person, by the way). This time I need a character's name Hepburn was nominated for playing (but failed to win the Oscar for playing her), which means there are eight characters from which to choose.

For 10 points:
Violet Venable from Suddenly Last Summer, Alice Adams from Alice Adams, Mary Tyrone from Long Day's Journey Into Night, Rose Sayer from The African Queen.
For 5 points:
Lizzie Curry from The Rainmaker (5!), Tess Harding from Woman of the Year (3).

No one selected Tracy Lord from The Philadelphia Story or Jane Hudson from Summertime....

The Results!

bethfay....40 points!
denni19, Engadine, glamel, Howie72, MaggieG....35 points!
cujimmy, Frøya, JaneMarple, ren33....30 points!
Mugaboo, srini701....25 points!

What a grand contest! It was close all the way through and decided right at the very end. Well done, folks! I bow in light of your skills. A special "congrats" to our winner bethfay!

Continue with your donuts now and see you next time !

I managed to coax my husband away from the computer and luckily my daughter has gone away for the night - so I am now able to post the answers to Round 11.

9 people played

1) Give me the name of any Giant Panda who is currently living in a zoo outside of China.

Worth 10 points
Su Lin, Syu Hin, Lun Lun, Yang Yang, Jia Jia, Gao Gao, Bai Yun

Worth 5 points
Liang Bin/Rau Hin (2)

Liang Bin/Rau Hin (one website had Lau Hin) is the female bear born on the 6 Sept 2000 at Adventure World in Japan. I am not sure why she has 2 different names.

2) Give my the name of one of the atolls that make up the Maldives.

Worth 10 points
Laamu, Gnaviyani, Shaviyani, Dhaalu, Alif Dhaal, Thaa

Worth 5 points
Gaafu Alif (2)

Worth 10 points
Laamu, Gnaviyani, Shaviyani, Dhaalu, Alif Dhaal

3) Give me a species of toucan

Worth 10 points
Many-banded Aracari, Tawny-tufted Toucanet, Channel-billed Toucan, Spot-billed Toucanet, Fiery-billed Aracari

Worth 5 points
Hooded Mountain Toucan (2), Citron-throated Toucan (2)

4) Give me that date and location of one of the 10 worst plane crashes of all time.

Worth 10 points
Tenerife 27 Mar 1977 (583 people killed), Lockerbie 21 Dec 1988 (270 people killed), Strait of Hormuz 3 July 1988 (290 killed), Chicago 25 May 1979 (273 killed)

Worth 5 points
Dehli 12 Nov 1996 (349 killed) (2), Atlantic Ocean off Ireland 23 Jun 1995 (329 killed) (2)

I had to disallow the answer "July 3, 1988 at Chicago's O'Hare airport (American Airlines DC-10)" as the location is where the American Airlines DC-10 crashed but the date is wrong. The date is for another crash (the above mention Strait of Hormuz disaster in which a Iran Air plane was mistakenly shot down by the US Destroyer Vincennes).

5) Give me the name of an Australian who has won a Nobel Prize

Worth 10 points
Macfarlane Burnett, John Eccles, John Coetzee
