Celebrities A-B Trivia Questions

1. Eldest son, Richard, was born in which city, most likely due to their father's occupation at the time?

From Quiz
Love the Attenboroughs

Answer: Cambridge (University fellow)

Richard Samuel Attenborough, eldest of three sons of Frederick Levi Attenborough, scholar and Cambridge fellow (1920-25), was born in Cambridge in 1923. Younger brothers David Frederick and John Michael were born in Isleworth, Middlesex (now part of London) in 1926 and 1928 respectively, at which time Frederick was principal of Borough Road Training College in that place. Frederick went on to be principal of University College, Leicester from 1932-51. While Richard and David went on to careers in the public eye, John (1928-2012) had a successful career as an executive in the motor industry.

2. What was George Burns' real name?

From Quiz George Burns: The Funniest "Straight Man" Ever

Answer: Nathan Birnbaum

Nathan Birnbaum was born January 20, 1896, the ninth of twelve children born to Hadassah "Dorah" (née Bluth) and Eliezer Birnbaum, in New York City. He grew up living in a tenement on Rivington Street, and the family was extremely poor. He became George Burns because he thought that name would look better in lights. He said he "knew that he would eventually become famous"! The "George" was after his brother Isadore, who for some reason was always called "George", and the "Burns" was after the coal company in his neighborhood.

3. Jack Benny was born Benjamin Kubelsky. What made him decide to change his name to Jack Benny?

From Quiz Jack Benny: A Tribute

Answer: He was threatened with a law suit by another entertainer.

Benjamin Kubelsky was born in Chicago, Illinois on February 14, 1894 to Meyer and Emma Kubelsky. Emma had dreamed of having a son who was a concert violinist even before Jack was born, and made him take violin lessons. Jack hated the practicing, so Emma finally gave up. In 1912, Jack teamed up with Cora Salisbury in a vaudeville act in which she played the piano and Jack the violin. They were billed as "Salisbury and Kubelsky". From Jack's book, "Sunday Nights At Seven: The Jack Benny Story", Jack writes: "A few weeks after we were on the road I had quite a jolt. The concert violinist Jan Kubelik heard about me. His lawyer said that I would be sued unless I changed my name. I told them that Kubelsky was my real name, but they didn't believe me. So I became Ben Benny until another comedian named Ben Bernie also threatened to sue me, as my name was too close to his. So then I became Jack Benny."

4. The actress known as Aunt Bee on "The Andy Griffith Show", Frances Elizabeth Bavier, was born December 14, 1902, in New York City. What was her birth name?

From Quiz My Name Is Frances - Not Aunt Bee!

Answer: Frances Elizabeth Bavier

Bavier's parents, Charles and Mary, lived in Gramercy Park, New York City. After originally planning to become a teacher, Bavier instead became involved in vaudeville, and later, with Broadway productions. At one time she used Hazel Howard as her stage name. She graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in 1925; her big break, which came in 1938, was starring in the stage production of "On Borrowed Time". She played the grandmother of the orphan, John 'Pud" Northrup. Together with her husband, they took Pud in and raised him after the death of his parents. Death, however, had other plans for Pud and his grandparents. Over her long career, Bavier appeared in thirteen films, and had supporting roles in many well-known television shows, such as "Rawhide", "Wagon Train", and "Dragnet", where she appeared in three episodes as Hazel Howard.

5. Stephen Bishop captured our hearts performing what song?

From Quiz Stephen Bishop, the Greatest Human Ever

Answer: On and On

Yes, the soundtrack of 1977 was exemplified by "On and On". Even though ten other songs managed to inexplicably beat out this, the greatest song ever recorded, on the Billboard charts, every human owes a debt of gratitude to Stephen Bishop for enriching our lives in ways we can never repay. "The Pina Colada Song" was performed by Rupert Holmes. "Spanish Pipedream" was written and performed by John Prine. "Midnight at the Oasis" was a Maria Muldaur song.

6. In which California city was Gracie born?

From Quiz The Lovely and Talented Gracie Allen

Answer: San Francisco

Grace Ethel Cecile Rosalie Allen was born on July 26. There is conflicting information about the year. Speculation runs from 1895-1906. Due to the Great Earthquake in San Francisco in 1906, the Birth and Death Records building was destroyed. It's on her tombstone that she was born in 1902. There was something very unique about Gracie's eyes. She was born with heterochromia, giving her one blue eye and one green eye. Since "The Burns and Allen" television program was filmed in black and white, it wasn't noticed, but Gracie was still a bit self-conscious about it.

7. Debby is the third daughter of which singer, actor and writer?
