Leading Ladies Trivia Questions

1. She acted on stage in London in "The World of Suzie Wong" to great success, which made her famous in England. Which actress appeared in the James Bond films, "You Live Only Twice" in 1967 and "Casino Royale" in 2006?

From Quiz
Chinese Female Celebrities

Answer: Tsai Chin

Tsai Chin (Zhou Caiqin), or Irene Chow, was born in 1933 in Shanghai. Her acting career spanned more than 60 years beginning in the late 1950s. She was the first Chinese student to study at Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London. Her best known role was in the "Joy Luck Club" in 1993 as Auntie Lido. Her single, "The Ding Dong Song", recorded by Decca in 1960, was top of the charts in Asia. In 2005, she played the role of Auntie in "Memoirs of a Geisha". After the Cultural Revolution, she was the first actress to be invited to teach acting in China.

2. In Ethel Merman's autobiography, under the one page chapter on her troubled marriage to Ernest Borgnine, how did she describe it?

From Quiz Chuckles from Leading Ladies

Answer: With a blank page

What can one say about Ethel Merman that could sum that feisty gal up in a few words? She was big, brassy, loud-mouthed, sometimes very vulgar, in your face and talented, with that extraordinarily powerful voice which paved the road to fame for her in musical theatre and film. Born in Queens, New York, in 1908, Ethel Merman died in 1984, and if a lifetime of talent could be inscribed on a headstone, hers would read starring roles in eighteen stage productions, eighteen films, twenty-two television appearances, and twelve hit records - plus four marriages, two children and a host of friends and enemies. The film most associated with this talented, loud-mouthed, vulgar, and very funny woman is the 1954 "There's No Business Like Show Business", in which she plays part of a husband and wife Vaudeville team that become famous and successful, along with their three talented children and a host of family problems. With a lifetime of hilarious quotes that this talented woman made about anyone and everything - most of which aren't suitable for this site - she did the reverse when discussing her explosive marriage to Ernest Borgnine. It lasted less than two months and, in her 1978 autobiography "Merman", under the chapter regarding that marriage - to which she devoted only one page - she left the entire page blank.

3. This Tennessee celebrity is probably better known as a country music singer than an actress, but she became known as an actress after her role in "9 to 5." Who married Carl Thomas Dean, an asphalt paver, in 1966?

From Quiz Finding Mr. Right

Answer: Dolly Parton

Dolly Parton has been married for over 50 years to the same man, and although she does not use the last name Dean professionally, it is her legal last name. Dean owned an asphalt pavement in Nashville, rarely accompanies Dolly Parton on tours, and stays mainly out of the public eye. They have no children. Dolly Parton has said about the marriage "We're really proud of our marriage. It's the first for both of us. And the last."

4. The first pair of sisters both nominated for a Best Actress Oscar in the same year were born in which country?

From Quiz Those Who Have Won a Best Actress Oscar

Answer: Japan

Born Olivia Mary de Havilland and Joan de Beauvoir de Havilland in Tokyo, Japan in 1916 and 1917 respectively, the sisters were both nominated for Best Actress in 1941. Joan Fontaine, who had adopted her step-father's surname when she started acting professionally, had been nominated for her performance in Alfred Hitchcock's "Rebecca" the previous year. In 1941, she won for her role in another Hitchcock film, "Suspicion", whilst de Havilland was nominated for "Hold Back the Dawn". Fontaine was nominated again, in 1943, for "The Constant Nymph". De Havilland also won when she was nominated for the second time, in 1946, for "To Each His Own". She earned her third nomination in 1948 for "The Snake Pit" and her fourth a year later in the title role of William Wyler's "The Heiress", for which she also won.

5. Natalie portrayed Anne Boleyn, mother of Queen Elizabeth I and second wife of Henry VIII in what movie?

From Quiz Natalie Portman

Answer: The Other Boleyn Girl

6. This future star had uncredited appearances as a dancer in 1933's "Roman Scandals" and 1934's "Kid Millions". She danced her way through several movies, but she also appeared in comedies and dramas. Who was this famous redhead?

From Quiz Nine Ladies Dancing

Answer: Lucille Ball

With a career that spanned 57 years, Lucille Ball was a pioneer in several areas. She was the first woman to head a major television studio in Hollywood, one of the first winners of the Women in Film Crystal Award, and her production company initiated several changes in filming techniques. Her company, Desilu, also made an unprecedented deal with CBS which gave the rights to the "I Love Lucy" show back to Desilu after the episodes were aired. She was nominated for numerous awards and won several, including four Emmy Awards. In 1960 she earned two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame - one for film, one for television. And, Lucille Ball was not a natural redhead - she was a brunette.

7. This actress appeared in silent films and talkies. She played in 'Min and Bill' (1930) opposite Wallace Beery (1885-1949).

From Quiz She's a Character

Answer: Marie Dressler

Marie Dressler (1868-1934) was a star of stage and screen. She played comic roles but also brought a sensitivity to roles as well. Although physically unattractive, she stole scenes from the younger and more beautiful Jean Harlow (1911-1937) in 'Dinner at Eight' (1933).

8. This actress was born in New York City in 1949. In 1963, she changed her first name after reading "The Great Gatsby". She's had a long and successful career. Which actress played the characters Ellen Ripley, Dana Barrett and Katharine Parker?

9. Who was this famous actress, who was famous for her bouffant hairdo and girl-next-door charm, and starred in some of the most popular movies of the '50s and '60s?

From Quiz Leading Ladies of Hollywood's Golden Age

Answer: Doris Day

Doris Day was a major star of Hollywood in its prime. She starred in many popular films like "Pillow Talk" (1959), her most successful, with Rock Hudson. She started off as a dancer until she shattered her leg in a car accident, and during recovery discovered her ability to sing. She became a vegetarian whom friends nicknamed Clara Bixby. Interesting note: Her son, Terry, was actually the intended victim of Charles Manson's cult killings. His old home was sold and belonged to Sharon Tate.

10. She was known for her distinctive voice. What comedic actress starred in these classic films: "Mr Deeds Goes to Town", and "Mr Smith Goes to Washington"?

From Quiz Classic Movie Queens From A to Z

Answer: Jean Arthur

Jean Arthur was delightful to watch, starring in movies opposite Gary Cooper, Jimmy Stewart and Edward G. Robinson. Eve Arden was best known for the TV show "Our Miss Brooks", but she did well in movies also, usually playing the best friend to the female lead. Mary Astor had a long career in movies, and starred opposite Humphrey Bogart in "The Maltese Falcon". Gracie Allen was one-half of the popular comedy team, Burns and Allen, with her husband George Burns.

11. In the late 1920s and early 1930s, the saying at MGM was: Norma Shearer got the big productions, Greta Garbo supplied the art and Joan Crawford _____?

From Quiz MGM's Golden Girls

Answer: made the money to pay for them both

Joan was under contract with MGM from 1925-1943. In that time she made 51 movies for MGM - most of them making a profit for the studio. Norma Shearer had most of her movies hand selected by her husband Irving Thalberg. He preferred to have her star in the costume dramas which were quite costly. Garbo only made 24 films in the United States, all of which were for MGM. The last one, "Two-Faced Woman" in 1941 was a flop.

12. Whose photograph was found among Anne Frank's collection of pictures on the wall of her room in the house in which her family hid from the Nazis?

From Quiz Crawford, Dietrich, Shearer or Garbo?

Answer: Norma Shearer

An entry in Anne Frank's diary, July 11, 1942 states, "Up to now our bedroom, with its blank walls, was very bare. Thanks to father, who brought my entire post-card and movie star collection here beforehand -- and to a brush and a pot of glue, I was able to plaster the wall with pictures." Norma Shearer was among these.

From Quiz Ladies With an Attitude - The Stars of Vogue

Answer: Something's Got to Give

"Something's Got to Give" was planned as a remake of the 1940 film "My Favorite Wife", starring Monroe and Dean Martin. Made at a time when Monroe was struggling with both health and addiction problems, the star had repeated absences for sickness over the course of her time on set, which led to her being fired in June 1962. Although she was subsequently re-hired, she died before shooting could resume. The film was eventually made as "Move Over, Darling" (1963) with Doris Day and James Garner.

17. Judy Davis has had an active career both in film and television. Which controversial film, based on an EM Forster book written in 1924 about the Raj, gave her her first Oscar nomination?

From Quiz Australian Leading Ladies

Answer: 'A Passage to India'

Judy Davis trained at the National Institute of Dramatic Art in Sydney, and was a student with Mel Gibson. Her first major role was in 'My Brilliant Career', based on the book by Miles Franklin. 'A Passage to India' was her first major international role, and she was nominated for an Academy Award, losing to Sally Field for 'Places in the Heart' (this is the ceremony where Sally Field made her famous 'you really like me' acceptance speech. Judy Davis continues to have a successful career, with her most recent role as of 2016 being in 'The Dressmaker'. 'A Passage to India' was set in India in the 1920s. Judy's character, Adela attends a picnic hosted by an Indian Doctor, named Aziz, with the aim of visiting some famous caves. Adela's future mother-in-law and chaperone becomes unwell and leaves Adela and Aziz to explore the caves with a guide. Aziz stops to smoke a cigarette and Adela disappears, to reappear shortly after running down the hill, blood stained and dishevelled. Aziz is charged with attempted rape, but at trial, Adela changes her mind and Aziz is exonerated. Both 'Howards End' and 'Room with a View' by EM Forster were made into movies with Emma Thompson winning a Best Actress Award for her role in 'Howards End', while 'Room with a View' won Academy Awards for Art and Costumes. Please note that this is the correct spelling of 'Howards End'. There is no apostrophe.

18. "I was a ballerina but I had to quit after I injured a groin muscle. It wasn't mine". Which well known American screenwriter, actress and comedian, born in 1953, made that saucy remark?

From Quiz Chuckles from Leading Ladies

Answer: Rita Rudner

Actress, comedian and writer, Rita Rudner was born in Florida in 1953. She began her entertainment career as a dancer, appearing in several successful stage productions during the late 1960s and early 1970s, before switching to performing in her own stage comedy shows from the age of twenty-five. That funny remark above is from one of her routines. By the 1990s, Rita had moved further along in her career to appearing in various television shows, and from that to screen writing and acting in movies such as the 1992 "Peter's Friends". The plot of this film is centred around a reunion between six friends, ten years after they first acted together in a comedy troupe at Cambridge University - and the loss of love and life that became their finale. Most unlike her normal entertainment persona, Rita stars as the American wife of a big name producer whose marriage is in trouble. A couple of other funny quotes attributed to Rita include the following: "In Hollywood, a marriage is a success if it outlasts milk". "My grandmother was a very tough woman. She buried three husbands - and two of them were just napping". "Men do cry - but only when assembling furniture". "I was a vegetarian until I started leaning toward the sunlight". "I wonder if other dogs think poodles are members of a weird religious cult".

19. An actress who was the first to receive $1 million for her role in a movie, portrayed a powerful queen. She married her costar of the movie, twice in fact, and was a much-awarded actress and social activist. Do you know who she was?

She received another for "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" in 1966. In the 1980s she promoted HIV and AIDS programs.

From Quiz Those Who Have Won a Best Actress Oscar

Answer: Claudette Colbert

Émilie "Lily" Chauchoin was born in the eastern Parisian suburb of Saint-Mandé. The family moved to New York City when she was just three years old and she began performing on Broadway in the early 1920s using the name Claudette Colbert, and made her film debut in 1927. Her performance as the pampered socialite Ellen "Ellie" Andrews in the 1934 Frank Capra comedy "It Happened One Night" earned Colbert her first Oscar nomination and her only win. The film also became the first to win Oscars in all five major categories (Best Picture, Actor, Actress, Director and Screenplay), a feat since repeated by "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" in 1975 and "The Silence of the Lambs" in 1991. Colbert received two more Best Actress nominations -- in 1935 for "Private Worlds" and in 1944 for "Since You Went Away".

21. In 1986, Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer and Tim Robbins were elite US Navy airmen in "Top Gun". Who could forget Kenny Loggins' "Danger Zone" (1986) hit on the soundtrack? Who played Maverick's (Cruise's) girl, Charlie, a year after her first major role?

From Quiz Who's That Girl?

Answer: Kelly McGillis

Kelly McGillis, in her breakout role, played an Amish woman against Harrison Ford's hard-nosed Philadelphia detective, John Book in "Witness" (1985). She played a radically different role as Maverick's fiery girl in "Top Gun" ("Take my Breath Away" - Berlin (1986)). Meg Ryan had a small role as Carole wife of ("ER"'s Anthony Edwards) Goose in the same movie.

Lauren Bacall was sultry, glamorous, dynamite in films with Humphrey Bogart...and she finally won her Oscar in 1977. Lucille Ball began as a model and played in many films (Top Hat", "Stage Door") before hitting it big with "I Love Lucy". Ingrid Bergman was born in Sweden, and starred in many important movies, winning three Oscars, for "Gaslight", "Anastasia", and "Murder on the Orient Express". "Casablanca" is probably her most unforgettable film.

27. In 1925 Norma Shearer played a dual role in the silent film "Lady of the Night". Which soon to be superstar had a bit part playing her double?

From Quiz MGM's Golden Girls

Answer: Joan Crawford

In 1925 Norma was the current darling at MGM. Joan was new to Hollywood and looking for good parts. She was pleased to be cast in a movie with a recognized star, until she found out all the audience would see of her was the back of her head. Thus began her competition with Norma. When casting started for "The Women" in 1939, Joan campaigned and won the part of the mistress who stole Norma Shearer's character's husband. After the movie was made, a publicity photo shoot was scheduled. Neither woman wanted to be the first to show up. Both ladies told their respective chauffeurs to drive around the block until the other got out first. After a few laps Howard Strickling (MGM's publicity chief) went out into the middle of the street and stopped the limos, telling both ladies to get out. Norma walked in first while Strickling held Joan from trying to squeeze in too.

28. Ruth Gordon! God bless her, what a talent. One of her later films, and a popular one in some circles, was "Harold And Maude" in 1971. She played Maude, of course, but who played Harold?

From Quiz R You Sure?

Answer: Bud Cort

What an odd but wonderful film! A May/December romance beyond logic, it was (or maybe that should be January/December romance). Gordon may be most widely known for her Oscar winning turn in "Rosemary's Baby" [1968] but she and her husband Garson Kanin were prolific writers and came up with many a good script long before, but young Cort, who liked funerals in the movie, played Harold.

29. At age 19 she met her 44 year-old on screen leading man and knew he would be her leading man off screen as well. The pair married in 1945, had two children, and made four movies together. Who is she?

From Quiz Women of the Golden Age of Hollywood

Answer: Lauren Bacall

Lauren Bacall met Humphrey Bogart on the set of "To Have and Have Not" in 1944. The pair married in 1945. Bogart passed away in 1957, and Bacall died in 2014.

30. Who was the last to make the transition from silent films to "talkies"?
