Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Author of "The Boston Cooking-School Cookbook"; first known to feature standardized measurements in recipes

Answer: Fannie Farmer

Fannie Farmer was born in the mid-nineteenth century in Boston, Massachusetts (USA). She had complied and published her book, "The Boston Cooking-School Cookbook", hoping to, as she printed in the preface of that book, offer "condensed scientific knowledge which will lead to deeper thought and broader study of what to eat". Skeptics were not confident her book would sell; it proved to be an immediate success. Apparently, it had some lasting appeal as well - in 1996 the thirteenth edition of that cookbook was re-issued to celebrate its 100th anniversary.
2. Spanish general during the Spanish Civil War; ruled Spain from 1939 to 1975

Answer: Francisco Franco

Francisco Franco was commander in chief the Nationalist forces that overthrew the Spanish democratic republic in the Spanish Civil War (1936-39). Immediately after his victory, tens of thousands were either executed or imprisoned. For nearly four decades Franco ruled Spain in what has been described as a "repressive dictatorship".

In 1969, Franco named his successor to be Prince Juan Carlos de Borbón, who he believed would be most likely to rule as he had ruled. However, very soon after Franco's death in 1975, Juan Carlos I set about dismantling Spain's authoritarian institution and reintroduced political parties.

In mid-1977 the first elections were held there since 1936; Spain became a democracy.
3. One of the most influential filmmakers of all time; "Spirits of the Dead" (1968), "Fellini's Casanova" (1976)

Answer: Federico Fellini

Italian born filmmaker/director, Federico Fellini, was known for his blend of fantasy and/or dream-like scenarios with realism and earthiness to create his films. A style of film making that flourished - particularly in Italy - in the post-World War II era was described as "Neorealism", (in Italian: "Neorealismo").

This style greatly influenced Fellini's work, yet he developed his own distinctive techniques and methods that were well respected by those in the industry and critics, alike. Fellini was nominated for 16 Academy Awards and became the first director to win four Oscars in the category of Best Foreign Language Film.
4. Actress/model; films include "3:10 to Yuma" (1957); second wife of actor, Jack Lemmon

Answer: Felicia Farr

Felicia Farr began her modeling career as a model of lingerie in the late 1940s - at an age that she said many years later was much younger than had been assumed. By the mid-1950s she was starring in successful motion pictures with Hollywood heartthrobs, Glenn Ford and Richard Widmark. Those movies include: "Jubal" (1956) and "The Last Wagon" (1956).

When she married actor Jack Lemmon in 1962, it was the second marriage for both of them, and they would remain married until Lemmon's death in 2001.
5. Texas born American musician; "Before the Next Teardrop Falls", #1 song during 1975

Answer: Freddy Fender

Freddy Fender, whose birth name was Baldemar Garza Huerta, was born near the border of the United States and Mexico in the town of San Benito, Texas. He began singing on local radio stations at age 10, and continued his musical aspirations by performing (mainly) Spanish translations of (other artists') country music favorites.

The late 1950s marked a legal name change from his birth name to Freddy Fender - which he said was in honor of Fender guitars. Success would come for him, but slowly. During the 1970s and 1980s Fender would have more than 20 songs on the U.S. Hot Country Singles charts.
6. American teen idol of the 1950s/1960s; gold records for "Turn Me Loose" and "Tiger"

Answer: Fabian Forte

Years before there was Cher or Madonna or Bono, there was (simply!) Fabian. Fabian joined a host of singers who became actors in the late 1950s and early 1960s to win the hearts of many young fans. Fabian often explained that he became an entertainer by circumstance, not necessity.

He was still in his teens when his father suddenly became too ill to work and since he was the oldest of three brothers, Fabian felt responsible to earn money for his family. With the urging of a local (to his hometown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) talent manger and record label owner, Fabian was groomed to follow in the foot steps of heartthrobs like Frankie Avalon and Bobby Rydell. Fabian was a frequent guest on Dick Clark's "American Bandstand".

His movies included: "North to Alaska" (1960) and "The Longest Day" (1962).
7. TV/film star; part of original cast of "Charlie's Angels"; red swimsuit poster

Answer: Farrah Fawcett

For years after the mid-1970s the mere mention of "Farrah Fawcett" conjured the image of a blonde, blue-eyed beauty with a bright smile wearing a striking red one-piece swimsuit. As well it should! After its release in 1976, what became known as "the Farrah Fawcett red swimsuit poster" sold more than six million copies its first year.

It would eventually sell more than double that figure. It was during that same year Farrah Fawcett was a part of the new television series, an American drama titled "Charlie's Angels".

She died of anal cancer in 2009. As a part of her final wishes she bequeathed all of her art work to her alma mater, University of Texas, where she had studied art in the mid-1960s.
8. American rapper; member of hip-hop group Public Enemy; reality TV "Strange Love" (2005)

Answer: Flavor Flav

Flavor Flav was the stage name of an artist and entrepreneur whose birth name was William Jonathan Drayton Jr. He was born in March of 1959. He became an incredibly gifted and talented musician. At an age as young as five years old, he began teaching himself to play the piano and before many years had passed he had mastered not only the piano but the guitar and drums, as well.

As an adult Flavor Flav was said to have been able to play - and, play well - as many as fifteen different musical instruments.

His contributions to the entertainment industry did not go unnoticed. Flavor Flav was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013 and was given a Lifetime Achievement Award as a part of the Grammy Awards in 2020.
9. American actress; TV series include: "Murphy Brown" and "Hope & Faith"

Answer: Faith Ford

Faith Ford began her professional career before she was eighteen years old. Her early castings in TV shows saw her in "One Life to Live" (1968-2013), "Another World" (1964-1999), and the short-lived sitcom, "The Popcorn Kid" (1987). It was the vast popularity of the American television sitcom, "Murphy Brown" (1988-2018), and her work on that show as "Corky Sherwood", that allowed Ford to become a much-sought-after actress.

She starred, along with Kelly Ripa, in their own comedy series titled, "Hope & Faith" (2003-2006) and continued her work - mainly on television - well into the 21st century.

In 2004, she published a cookbook titled "Cooking With Faith" which she described as a collection of updated Southern traditional recipes with a "fresh healthy new spin".
10. American professional baseball player; member of Atlanta Braves World Series winning team in 2021

Answer: Freddie Freeman

Freddie Freeman was born in California (USA) in 1989 the son of two Canadian parents. He was a gifted baseball player from a very young age and seemed to excel even when placed among other players who were a few years older than he. After his high school graduation rather than accept a college scholarship he signed a lucrative contract with Major League Baseball's Atlanta Braves where he played n their minor league system for two years.

The next year (2010) and for an additional eleven years he was an important asset to the Braves - as mentioned, even as part of their pennant winning year, 2021.
