Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Western character actor, sidekick to Roy Rogers

Answer: Andy Devine

Andrew Vabre Devine (1905-1977) had a readily-identified raspy voice that became his trademark in over 400 films, including ten as Cookie Bullfincher, a character whose profession and relationship to Roy Rogers varied from film to film - but the comic relief element was constant.

His lengthy career spanned radio, film, and television. He made his stage debut in 1957, as the captain in a Jones Beach Theatre production of 'Showboat', and delighted a new audience with his voice acting of Friar Tuck in Walt Disney's 1973 animated 'Robin Hood'.
2. radio and television journalist with a regular segment on '60 Minutes'

Answer: Andy Rooney

Andrew Aitken Rooney (1919-2011) presented the segment 'A Few Minutes with Andy Rooney' as part of the CBS weekly program '60 Minutes' from 1978 until a month before his death in 2011. His career started with writing war reports for the US Army newspaper 'Stars and Stripes' during World War II, work which earned him several medals.

In 1949 he started writing for the radio and television shows featuring Arthur Godfrey, and then progressed to writing television essays (in the early days, with Harry Reasoner doing the narration) which garnered multiple awards. His short segment at the end of '60 Minutes' discussed topics ranging from the trivial (annoying relatives) to the controversial (comments on race, same-sex relationships, and other areas).
3. actor who portrayed Andy Taylor and Ben Matlock

Answer: Andy Griffith

Andy Samuel Griffith (1926-2012) may be most familiar to many from these iconic television roles, which still can be watched around the world, but he was also a Tony Award nominee for work on the stage, featured in some highly successful dramatic movie roles, and recorded music in several genres. He started university studies intending to become a preacher, but changed to attain a Bachelor of Music, and spent some time as a music and drama teacher before moving on to a performance career.

In 1955 Andy Griffith made his television debut in 'No Time for Sergeants', and portrayed Will Stockdale in the subsequent Broadway play (which gained him a Tony nomination) and the 1958 film, where he first worked with Don Knotts. 'The Andy Griffith Show', which ran from 1960 to 1968, featured Andy as a small town sheriff, Don as his inept deputy, and a very young Ron Howard as his son.
4. singer and television show host whose trademark song was 'Moon River'

Answer: Andy Williams

Howard Andrew Williams (1927-2012) started off singing with his three older brothers, enjoying a very successful career with them before going solo in 1953. He landed some steady television work, and recorded a string of minor hits, but it was 1962's cover of the award-winning song Henry Mancini wrote to be the theme song for 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' (where it was sung by Audrey Hepburn) that really set him up as a star. It was never released as a single, but the album on which he recorded it ('Moon River and Other Great Movie Themes) was a chart success.

Between 1962 and 1971 he opened his television variety show 'The Andy Williams Show' by singing the start of 'Moon River'; the performance venue he established in Branson, Missouri, in 1992 was named Moon River, as was his production company. Then there was the autobiography, '"Moon River" and Me'. He had a lot of other major hits over the years, producing 43 studio albums and a number of compilations, but this was the big one.
5. pop artist famous for soup cans and '15 minutes of fame' quote

Answer: Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol (1928-1987), born Andrew Warhola Jr, started as a commercial illustrator before gaining recognition as a significant, if more than slightly controversial, artist. His NYC studio, The Factory, was set up as a place for him to pursue his own silk screen work, but also served as a creative hub for other visual artists, musicians, and filmmakers between 1963 and 1987.

Andy Warhol was a prolific artist, so it does not really do him justice to keep reminding everyone of the soup cans, but they do capture the aim of pop art - to turn a reflective eye on the everyday aspects of a consumerist life using images from popular culture and mass media, removed from their original context. 'Campbell's Soup Cans' is a collection of 32 20x16 inch silkscreen images produced in 1961-2, one of each of the 32 types of canned soups then on offer from the company. They became a theme for his work.

Andy Warhol is also associated with the statement, "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes." This first appeared in the program for a 1968 exhibition, but apparently he never actually said or wrote it. But as the curator for that exhibit apparently said, "If he didn't say it, he could very well have said it."
6. lead guitarist and singer with The Police

Answer: Andy Summers

Andrew James Summers (1942- ) was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003 as a member of The Police, a group of which he was a foundation member in 1977, along with Sting and Stewart Copeland. They performed until 1984, and produced a number of massive international hits, including 'Roxanne', 'Message in a Bottle', and 'Every Breath You Take'. Andy Summers won two Grammy Awards for Best Rock Instrumental Performance with his work on 'Regatta de Blanc' and 'Behind My Camel'.

Aside from multiple reunions of The Police, Andy Summers pursued a solo career (recording and touring) mostly as a jazz performer, wrote the music for several films, produced several collaborative musical projects with other soloists, and gained a reputation as a photographer.
7. 'anti-comedian' who was the subject of the biopic 'Man on the Moon'

Answer: Andy Kaufman

Andrew Geoffrey Kaufman (1949-1984) preferred to call himself a song-and-dance man, not a comedian - but millions of fans who watched him perform on 'Saturday Night Live' (and other sketch-comedy shows) and portray the character Latka Gravas in the television series 'Taxi' between 1978 and 1983 certainly got plenty of laughs.

In 1992 the band R.E.M. released a tribute song titled 'Man in the Moon'; the title of that song was used for the 1999 film about him that starred Jim Carrey. The title is a reference to the widely spread rumor that Kaufman's death from lung cancer was actually an elaborate hoax, which would definitely have been in character!
8. Cuban-born actor who portrayed Sonny Corleone's illegitimate son in 'The Godfather Part III'

Answer: Andy García

Andrés Arturo García Menéndez (1956- ) was nominated for a Best Supporting Oscar for his portrayal of Vincent Minelli in the 1991 film 'The Godfather Part III', but will also be familiar for the role of Terry Benedict in 'Ocean's Eleven' (2001) and its two sequels. He was executive producer as well as star of the 2022 remake of 'Father of the Bride', this time with a Cuban-American family living in Miami.

A keen supporter of Cuban culture, Andy García produced a documentary film about the Cuban musician Cachao (credited with creating the music style known as mambo) and several albums that brought an end to nearly twenty years of obscurity in exile for the brilliant musician.
9. musician whose older brothers formed the Bee Gees

Answer: Andy Gibb

Andrew Roy Gibb (1958-1988) was born about the time his much older brothers formed the family group, and was never a part of the family group, although he did perform with them on several occasions. When he was 19, his single '(Love Is) Thicker Than Water' replaced the Bee Gees' 'Stayin' Alive' on top of the Billboard Hot 100, only to have their 'Night Fever' take over a few weeks later.

In 1981 Andy started working in the theatre, including the role of Joseph in 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat' on Broadway. While he was described as a fine actor, his presence proved too unreliable due to his drug problems. His career went into decline, despite several attempts at rehabilitation, seemingly successful for short periods. His sudden death was from natural causes, but the extensive abuse of drugs was the underlying factor behind his weakened heart succumbing to a viral infection.
10. actor known for motion capture roles such as Gollum

Answer: Andy Serkis

Andrew Clement Serkis (1964- ) was born in England, but split much of his childhood between London and Baghdad. His mother was Iraqi-English, and his Iraqi-Armenian father often worked in the Middle East, leaving the children with their mother. He discovered acting at university and had established himself in steady work when he was offered the chance to portray Sméagol / Gollum in Peter Jackson's 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy.

He then became something of a specialist in motion capture and voice-over roles - not only for these films and the prequel 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey', but also for such characters as the chimpanzee Caesar in 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' (2011) and its two sequels, and Supreme Commander Snoke in the final 'Star Wars' trilogy (2015, 2017, 2019).
