Celebrity Squares Trivia Questions

1. Which dimpled comedian/comedienne who also acted in "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" (1963) joined the US Army to fight in WWII for a few years?

From Quiz
American Celebrities in the Armed Forces - 4

Answer: Buddy Hackett

Buddy Hackett had suffered from Bell's Palsy when he was a child. This caused his face to become partially paralyzed, which in turn caused his characteristic lisp and movement of his lips. This didn't stop him from enlisting in the US Army when he finished high school, though. At eighteen years of age beginning in 1942, he served in an anti-aircraft battery until the war was over, at which time he started his career as a stand-up comedian and movie actor. None of the other people in the options provided in this question served in the military.

2. Which "Golden Girl" was in the Marine Corps?

From Quiz American Celebrities in the Armed Forces - 3

Answer: Bea Arthur

Bea Arthur (née Frankel) was born in 1922, so when WWII broke out, she was a young woman who wanted to do her part to help the American war effort. The United States Marine Corps Women's Reserve was developed and authorized by Franklin Roosevelt in 1942. Arthur joined up soon after. She attended basic training and was assigned as a typist in Washington, D.C. She requested a transfer in 1943 when she became a truck driver in North Carolina for the remainder of the war. After attaining the rank of staff sergeant, she received an honourable discharge in 1945.

3. What job did Benny Hill have during the invasion at Normandy?

From Quiz British Celebrities in the Armed Forces

Answer: Searchlight operator

Benny Hill was drafted into the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers in the British Army in 1942. Although he was trained as a mechanic, he did a number of jobs during his time in the military, including mechanic, truck driver, and searchlight operator in Normandy. In 1944, he transferred to the Combined Services Entertainment division to entertain his fellow troops for the remainder of the war.

6. George Harrison used his celebrity power in 1971 when a friend brought his attention to the sufferings of a war-torn nation. Which modern-day country did the proceeds from Harrison's concert benefit?

From Quiz The Power of the Benefit Concert

Answer: Bangladesh

George Harrison knew that an impressive lineup of performers would bring needed relief funds for refugees of war-torn Bangladesh, not so much from the concert itself, but from sales of a recording of the event. The event raised $250,000 while the album raised over $10 million. Unfortunately, the concert was not properly registered as a charity event beforehand, so most of the money raised was taxed and held up in court for a decade before it could be used to benefit the Bangladeshi refugees. The benefit concert was the first time Ringo Star and George Harrison shared the stage together since 1966 and was also the first live performance Bob Dylan had given in 5 years. By the way, at the time of the concert Bangladesh was transitioning away from being Eastern Pakistan to their own independent country.

14. While performing the media circuit for "War of the Worlds" in 2005, actor Tom Cruise took the opportunity to jump around on a couch on the set of what popular TV show, professing his love for then-partner Katie Holmes?

From Quiz Man Overboard

Answer: The Oprah Winfrey Show

While a lot of media stops on Cruise's "War of the Worlds" promotional tour ended up featuring some declaration of love for non-co-star Katie Holmes, the one stop at "The Oprah Winfrey Show" was perhaps the most famous due to Cruise's somewhat-manic proclamations, many of which involved jumping up and down on the set's couch while the audience cheered. The episode has since become a bit of a pop culture moment for the 2000's time capsule and has since appeared in parodist films of the era ("Scary Movie 3" comes to mind). "The War of the Worlds" ended up being a big hit for Cruise and director Steven Spielberg despite the tangential talk show topic though the TomKat marriage only lasted until 2012. Holmes barely acted during this period while Cruise continued to appear in high profile releases like "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" and "Tropic Thunder".
