Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. This 'Guy' was an English film director, writer and producer and was married to Madonna from 2000-2008.

Answer: Guy Ritchie

Particularly widely known for his direction of such blockbusters as "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" and "Sherlock Holmes", Guy Ritchie married the American pop singer Madonna in Dornoch Cathedral in the north of Scotland in 2000. They had one son, Rocco John Ritchie, before adopting Malawian child named David.

Following his split with Madonna in 2008, Ritchie later met model Jacqui Ainsley, with whom he has two children.
2. In English folklore, which 'Guy' has often been portrayed as a rival of Robin Hood for Maid Marian's affections?

Answer: Sir Guy of Gisbourne

The Robin Hood legends have changed drastically many times over the ages. However, even from the earliest ballads and stories, Sir Guy of Gisbourne was portrayed as an enemy of Robin Hood.

It appears to have been only in modern versions of the legends, however, that he has been portrayed as Robin Hood's love rival. For example, in the 1938 film "The Adventures of Robin Hood", Prince John is shown to have proposed Sir Guy as Maid Marian's husband, causing a duel between the two suitors. Later, in the BBC's 2006 adaptation of "Robin Hood", Sir Guy was portrayed as one of the Sherriff of Nottingham's men who, although he enforced the cruel rules of the Sherriff, loved Marian so much that he spent a lot of time trying to redeem himself in her eyes.
3. This 'Guy' was a bit of a loner who preferred his own company and never married. He did, however, leave a special bequest in his will to the hospital in south London which now bears his name. He may not have had a 'doll' as such, but many have loved him for his posthumous generosity. Who is he?

Answer: Thomas Guy

Thomas Guy (1644-1724) left a huge sum of money in his will to what is now Guy's Hospital in London. He had, in fact, set up that very hospital a few years earlier. Not only did he leave this bequest, but he also left a sum of money to a further London charity (Christ's Hospital) and another sum to be used to help the homeless and those in debtors' prisons in London.

Thomas Guy had made his fortune as a bookseller and through careful investment and speculation, especially in the South Sea Bubble. He had had a reputation as a miser. Thankfully, this reputation was clearly unjustified and his generosity lives on in the form of the hospital that bears his name.
4. This 'Guy's' first names were actually "Gaetano Alberto", but he was better known as "Guy". In 1926, just two years after he formed the band "The Royal Canadians" with his brothers, this 'Guy' married his 'doll', Lilliebell Glenn. Who was he?

Answer: Guy Lombardo

Born Gaetano Alberto Lombardo, Guy Lombardo was best known from the 1920s to the 1970s in America and Canada as a violinist and the bandleader of "The Royal Canadians". The band is estimated to have sold over 100 million phonograph records and was well known for their New Year's Eve broadcasts which continued even until two years after Guy Lombardo's death.

Married to Lilliebell until his death in 1977, Guy had a fondness for animals which perhaps took the place of the children the couple never had.
5. This Scottish 'Guy' plays bass guitar in a band and married his long-term girlfriend, Joanna, in 2004. Unfortunately they later divorced - oh well, Viva La Vida! Who is he?

Answer: Guy Berryman

Best known as the bassist for the band "Coldplay", Guy Berryman is also known for his dabblings in the antiques trade and his marathon running. He and his girlfriend of 6 years' standing, an interior designer, married in 2004, but they divorced just three years later. They have one daughter, Nico.
6. This 'Guy' was an actor who once worked with that well-known 'doll', Shirley Temple, in the 1947 film "Honeymoon". Outside of work, this 'Guy' was married twice, marrying Gail Russell in 1949 (they divorced in 1953) and then Sheila Connolly in 1960. Who was this Hollywood heart-throb?

Answer: Guy Madison

Born Robert Moseley in 1922, Guy Madison was spotted during army leave in California in 1944 by David O. Selznick, the head of Vanguard Pictures. Selznick bestowed unusual names upon all of his actors, and Guy was no exception. His first film role was in "Since You Went Away" (1944) and he went on to star in a large number of Hollywood films throughout the 1950s and 1960s. His career also spanned television where he is probably best remembered for his title role in "The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok".

Although Guy Madison died in 1996, he is remembered through two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (one for television and one for film).
7. This Canadian 'Guy' broke up with his doll, Rizia Moreira, in 2000 after ten years of common law marriage. Luckily, as the founder and CEO of "Cirque du Soleil", he has plenty of things to keep his mind off of the heartache.

Answer: Guy Laliberté

After years of street performance, Laliberté founded Quebec's famous "Cirque du Soleil" in 1984. Since then, he has been involved with every show. Now internationally renowned for its excellence as well as its grandeur, the circus has travelled to 5 continents and employs over 4,000 people.

Laliberté is also a notable philanthropist, having founded the One Drop Foundation which aims to give access to water for those that currently have none. In 2009, he became Canada's first space tourist and dedicated his flight to raising awareness of the water issues his foundation attempts to fight.
8. Saint Guy died a martyr in 303 when he was persecuted as a Christian. He was too young to have had a 'doll' of his own, but according to the legends he wasn't martyred alone, but rather with his tutor Modestus and his 'doll' Crescentia. By what name is Saint Guy better known?

Answer: Saint Vitus

Legend has it that Saint Vitus was a Sicilian boy who resisted his father's attempts to beat Christianity out of him and fled with his tutor and his tutor's wife (who was also his nanny in some versions of the story). The story goes that, after their capture and torture, they were taken to Southern Italy by an angel where they later died of the torture wounds inflicted upon them. Some stories suggest that the torture included being thrown into a cauldron of boiling tar, from which he escaped unscathed.

Saint Guy/Vitus is highly popular in Eastern and Southern Europe, where not only is he considered to be one of Fourteen important saints that give aid in times of great need, but his feast day is celebrated on June 15th. An old folk rhyme still remains: "If St. Vitus' Day be rainy weather, it shall rain for thirty days together".
9. This French 'Guy' was married to writer and poet Alice Becker-Ho. However, he is more more well known for his Situationist political views than for his doll. A founding member of the Situationist International, itself a major influence on the Paris Uprising of 1968 who was this left-wing 'Guy'?

Answer: Guy Debord

Politically active from his youth, when he demonstrated against the French War in Algeria and joined the Letterist International at 19, Guy Debord has been a significant influencer of European left-wing post-war politics.

He founded the Situationist International group in the 1960s, its prime ideals being based upon Marxism and revolutionary desires for the dissolution of Capitalism. Situationism advocated the pro-active creation of situations through which such desires could be achieved. Debord's 1967 "The Society of the Spectacle" has been suggested to have been the catalyst for the Paris Uprising of 1968, though he himself became disillusioned with Situationism in the 1970s and left the group.

Before committing suicide in 1994, Debord was well known as a writer and film maker.
10. This 'Guy' was Prime Minster of Belgium from 1999 to 2008 and had a 'doll' named Dominique Verkinderen. He was known in the 1980s as "Baby Thatcher" after a more famous 'doll'.

Answer: Guy Verhofstadt

Before becoming the Belgian Prime Minister in 1999, Guy Verhofstadt had served as Deputy Prime Minister and Minster of the Budget since the 1980s. He became known as "Baby Thatcher" because of his young age at the time and the fact that he had such strong economic views similar to those of the UK Conservative party of which Margaret Thatcher was, at that time, the leader.

After a break from politics in the 1990s, Verhofstadt returned as leader of the Flemish Liberals and Demoncrats with a much more centrist angle.
