5. As the daughter of famous ventriloquist, Edgar Bergen, what was one thing guaranteed to irritate Candice Bergen when she was a child?

From Quiz Interesting Facts About the Stars

Answer: Being described as the little sister of Charlie McCarthy

Charlie McCarthy's was Edgar Bergen's equally famous wise-cracking dummy, whose head was based on a red-headed imp of a newsboy and whose spine was a broom handle. He was famous for quips, such as the following, in his ongoing "feud" with actor W.C. Fields: W.C.Fields: "Quiet, wormwood, or I'll whittle you into a venetian blind." Charlie: "Ooh, that makes me shutter!" Candice Bergen, born 1946, is an American actress who has won five Emmy Awards and two Golden Globes, all of which were gleaned for her long running role as the top investigative journalist, Murphy Brown, in the sitcom television series (1988-1998) of the same name. Candice has also 35 film roles, and 25 other television roles and appearances to her credit. Her entertainment career started as a young child when she first began appearing with her father on his shows, where, comically so, she began to rather resent the fact that she was frequently introduced as Charlie McCarthy's younger sister.

6. Which ex-boxer was responsible for expressing the fear that he might "fade into Bolivian" after a bad defeat? (Hint: he didn't live up to his IRON reputation on this occasion)

From Quiz Celebs in their own write

Answer: Mike Tyson

"I might fade into Bolivian". Tyson said this after losing to Lennox Lewis ... truly a Chilean prospect for any sportsman used to the limelight (sorry). Michael Gerard Tyson became the first heavyweight boxing champion to unify all 3 codes (WBC, WBA and IBF) in 1988. His career began to go off the rails after an unexpected defeat to Buster Douglas in 1990 and a rape conviction in 1992 for which he served 3 years in jail. In 2002, when he fought Lennox Lewis (and was knocked out), he was 35 years old.

7. This actress, who played in such films as 1998's "The Parent Trap" and 2004's "Mean Girls", got caught in quite a few untruths. These included lying to police, fibbing about drugs, and not telling the whole truth about community service. Who is she?

From Quiz These Celebrities Didn't Exactly Tell The Truth

Answer: Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan was born in 1986 in New York to parents who worked on Wall Street. She began appearing in commercials and advertisements as a model before she was even three years old and, at age 15 was filming her first movie "The Parent Trap". By 2007 she had several movies credited to her but also was beginning to make the news in less glamorous ways. She was convicted for drunk driving, arrested for cocaine usage, and entered rehab multiple times. She has also been caught in various lies. In 2012, she told police that her assistant was driving on the Pacific Coast Highway in her car when it wrecked. After an investigation, it turns out it was Lindsay who was driving on parole. In 2013 she admitted she tried cocaine just a few times but in 2014 she told Oprah Winfrey it was much more than that and she did not want to be judged. In 2015 she tweeted to everyone she was back in New York City to do community service when, in fact, she was in London.

8. More famous for his tough guy roles, which actor astonished the film world by winning an Oscar for his portrayal of George M Cohan in "Yankee Doodle Dandy" in 1943?

From Quiz But I Fell in the Sink

Answer: James Cagney

Although James Cagney had begun his career as a dancer in vaudeville theatre (including on a female chorus line), his film career was based largely on playing tough guys. His Irish American and vaudeville background made him a perfect choice for the role of the playwright, composer, lyricist, actor, singer, dancer and producer that was George M. Cohan.

9. Actress Michelle Fairley may be known as the actress who portrayed Hermione Granger's mother in the film "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows- Part 1", but which "Game of Thrones" character did she portray?

While Catelyn is a loving mother to her children, she cannot tolerate the presence of Jon Snow, the supposed illegitimate son of her husband and was overly very harsh to him. Partly due to Lady Stark's behavior towards him, Jon will see himself as an outcast in Winterfell and will decide to join the Night's Watch.

10. Which singer is sighted?

From Quiz Seeing Stars

Answer: Smokey Robinson

Smokey Robinson does not need a 'miracle' to retain his ocular ability. William 'Smokey' Robinson Jr. was a major force in Motown as a pop singer, performer and songwriter. He founded the group Smokey Robinson & the Miracles (originally known as The Five Chimes) with their first album "Going to a Go-Go" in 1965. In 1972 he became vice-president of Berry Gordy's Motown records and, in 1973, went on to become a solo artist. In 1960, the group's first hit single, "Shop Around" became Motown's first million selling record. While the other choices are all singers, who have very different styles, each of them is blind.

11. This actress was born on July 1, 1916. On December 1, 2015, she is the oldest living actor who won an Academy Award and is also the last surviving major actor from the movie "Gone With The Wind". Who is she?

From Quiz Celebrities Among The Living

Answer: Olivia de Havilland

Olivia Mary de Havilland won the Oscar for Best Actress for both "To Each His Own" (1946) and "The Heiress" (1949). She played Melanie Wilkes in "Gone With The Wind", the film in which Vivian Leigh won Best Actress. Joan Fontaine, de Havilland's sister, won the Best Actress Oscar for "Suspicion" (1941).

12. Which actress got her start on the soap opera "General Hospital" and starred in "G.I. Jane"?

From Quiz Stars in TV and Movie Roles Too

Answer: Demi Moore

While all the choices above started out in soap operas, it was Demi Moore who played Jackie Templeton, an investigative reporter from New York City who winds up in Port Charles on "General Hospital" from 1982 to 1983. She was Jordan O'Neill in the film "G.I. Jane" (1997) and who could forget her as Erin Grant in 1996's "Striptease" (just about everybody)? She also won acclaim as Hester Prynne in "The Scarlet Letter" in 1995 and JoAnne Galloway in "A Few Good Men" (1992); but I thought those choices would be both too easy and too hard, respectively. She is also known for her marriages, her divorces and her children.

13. What celebrity is named as a co-inventor on a US patent titled "Model train horn control system"? (Hint: He has occasionally sung with a band formed by David Crosby and two others.)

From Quiz Celebrity US Patents

Answer: Neil Young

Canadian singer/songwriter Neil Young sang with the group Crosby, Stills & Nash on "Déjà vu" (their second album) and is included in the photograph on the album cover. Songs from that album include "Woodstock" and "Teach Your Children". Young's outstanding solo song is the beautiful "Harvest Moon" (one of my favorites). He has been named as a co-inventor on seven US patents related to model trains. Many of Young's inventions are to help his son Ben deal with Cerebral Palsy, which prevents him from grasping objects such as transformer controls or flip switches. US patent 5,555,815 was issued 17 September 1996 to Neil P. Young and three co-inventors. Historical note: Neil is known as an O-gauge model train enthusiast and at one time he was a part owner of Lionel, LLC, the designer and importer of model trains and accessories (20 percent stake in 1995). After a reorganization plan in 2008 he was no longer a minority shareholder, but remains an active consultant in the company's high-end products. Before Crosby, Stills & Nash was formed, both Stephen Stills and Neil Young had been members of the band Buffalo Springfield.

19. What was the affectionate nickname given to the beautiful singer Billie Holiday?

From Quiz Mixed Celebrities Number Two

Answer: Lady Day

Billie Holiday lived from 1915 until 1959. A reading of the life of this beautiful but completely tortured and self-destructive star is heart-breaking. She didn't have a chance right from the very beginning. Child of a single, abandoned mother, Billie already had a record in the juvenile courts by the time she was ten, at eleven she was raped by a neighbour, and by the time she was fourteen, she was working as a prostitute alongside her mother in Harlem, New York. It was here that the troubled child with the truly gifted voice also began singing at night clubs, and by the time she was in her twenties, she had become a successful recording star with her unique voice recognised world wide. She was given the nickname Lady Day by her long time friend, musician Lester "Prez" Young (1909-1959) who worked with her on several early recordings, and this nickname stayed with her for the remainder of her life. Billie died in 1959, unable to give up her lifelong addiction to alcohol and drugs. She had seventy cents left to her name. This tortured songbird sang about pain, loss and sorrow. Her art reflected her life.

Phineas Taylor (P.T.) Barnum brought human curiosities such as "General Tom Thumb" (who never reached three feet in height) and the "Feejee Mermaid" (a hoax), as well as the three-ring circus to the American public. Of his over-the-top rhetoric and promotional activities, Barnum once said "Without promotion something terrible happens...nothing!" He died in 1890 and we still talk about him, so he must have done something right.

23. This lady was the first actress to win the Best Actress Academy Award for a non-English speaking performance. Her film credits include "Houseboat", "El Cid" and "Marriage Italian Style". Have you guessed who she is yet?

From Quiz Oh My Dark Haired Beauty

24. Which movie star and adherent of Scientology, after rejuvenating his career with the likes of 'Pulp Fiction' and 'Broken Arrow', used his new-found fame and fortune to fund the near career-killing flop, 'Battlefield Earth'?

From Quiz More Money than Sense

Answer: John Travolta

Travolta first made his name in the mid-1970s in the TV show "Welcome Back Kotter", which led to lead roles in hit movies such as "Saturday Night Fever" (1977) and "Grease" (1978). He was one of the biggest stars in Hollywood but lost a lot of his lustre with a succession of poorly chosen films. By the time of "Pulp Fiction" (1994) he was practically a forgotten man but Tarantino's film changed that. Suddenly he was in demand again and a series of hit films followed. However, his hot streak came to a sudden end with "Battlefield Earth" in 2000. Based on the novel by Scientology founder, L. Ron Hubbard, it recounted the tale of the rebellion of the enslaved human race against their giant alien oppressors. It is a film that has to be seen to be believed and critics generally suggested that you didn't bother. Travolta received the Razzie for Worst Actor for his part in the film.

25. In May of 2000 a rapper was shot nine times in the legs, hands, and face. This artist is known for his album "Get Rich or Die Tryin'." Who is the artist?

26. This man is an English singer-songwriter who sang vocals in the band Dead or Alive. He is also known for his androgynous appearance and complications from lip implants. Who is he?

From Quiz Oh No! My Beautiful Face!

Answer: Pete Burns

Pete Burns was born in 1959 in England, UK, and founded the band Nightmares in Wax in 1979 - the name was changed to Dead or Alive in 1980. Pete is almost just as famous for his band, which released singles such as the UK number one hit "You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)" (1984), as he is famous for his androgynous appearance and cosmetic surgery - he has frequently worn extensive make-up and high heels. Due to the complications from lip injections, he had to spend most of his life savings on reconstructive surgery, and planned to sue the surgeon who performed the procedure; there was eventually an out-of-court settlement.

27. This comedienne resembles a puli, but only because of her dreadlocks. Pulis also have fur that resembles dreads. This sister acts, she sings, has a talk show, and is a comedienne! Who is the actress?

From Quiz Celebrity Doggelgangers

Answer: Whoopi Goldberg

Whoopi Goldberg was born in 1955 as Caryn Elaine Johnson. She first starred in "The Color Purple" in 1985. As an added clue, I said "this sister acts..." "Sister Act" was another movie Whoopi Goldberg starred in, in 1992. The puli is a medium-sized herding dog with tight curls as its coat, and they are very similar to dreadlocks. It makes the dog almost perfectly waterproof. You don't have to look very hard to see that Whoopi's hair and the fur of a puli look nearly identical.

28. What "That '70s Show" (1998) star was born with a fraternal twin and with syndactyly of the feet (webbed toes)?

Kutcher has shown his webbed toes on British television.

29. What two actresses played the role of Ms Anne Elliot in the 1995 made-for-tv movie and the 2007 ITV versions of Jane Austen's novel, "Persuasion", respectively?

From Quiz Jane Austen: Actors Who are Her Characters

Answer: Amanda Root and Sally Hawkins

Ms Anne Elliot was the second daughter of Sir Walter Elliot who gave up her first and only love on grounds of his lower status in society to please her family and her friend Lady Russell. The BBC version of "Persuasion" uses music composed by JS Bach and Chopin. (Source. www.imdb.com) While at least one Chopin piece, "Prelude No.3 in G major" is heard as background music during a scene set in Lyme, it would have been highly improbable the characters of "Persuasion" would have been familiar with his music. The events of "Persuasion" occur in 1814 and Chopin was born in 1810.

30. Many British actors have had the 'Best of Times' in Hollywood. All these are British, but who is the only one to have been born in England?

He was directed by Alfred Hitchcock on several occasions, including in 'To Catch a Thief' in 1955, where he starred with Grace Kelly, and 'North by Northwest' in 1959. The 'Worst of Times' for him came in 1966, with the film 'Walk, Don't Run', which was a flop and led to his retirement at the age of 62. Connery and McGregor were both born in Scotland and Hopkins was born in Wales.
