9. This "Grace" starred with her husband in a very popular comedy show when American television was in its infancy. She unfortunately died several years before her husband. Who was she?

From Quiz Say Grace

Answer: Gracie Allen

Recently, I was informed by a quiz taker that George Burns was the "straight man" of this duel, not Gracie. In order to confirm or to deny, I re-did my research and came across this information: "She (Gracie) met George Burns and the two immediately launched a new partnership, with Gracie playing the role of the "straight man" and George delivering the punchlines as the comedian." Passage quoted directly from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Burns I hope this takes care of any confusion. Here is my original blurb: Gracie Allen played the "straight man" for years as part of a comedy team with George Burns, her husband. Gracie would set up the jokes and then George would deliver the punch lines. They began working in vaudeville, moved into films and radio, and had their own television show called "The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show", which was also known as "The Burns and Allen Show" (1950-1958). One of the co-stars on the show was Bea Benaderet who played neighbor Blanche Morton. Ms. Benaderet would go on to appear as Pearl in "The Beverly Hillbillies" (1962-1971). Ethel Cecile Rosalie Allen was born in July in either 1885, 1897, 1902 or 1906! Ms. Allen claimed that her birth records were destroyed in the San Francisco earthquake of 1906. However, the earthquake was in April of that year; Ms. Allen was born three months later, in July. She would reply to critics with "Well, it was a BIG earthquake!" Gracie Allen suffered with heart disease most of her life. She died in 1964. George Burns followed her 32 years later.

10. U.S. Politics: This former actor spent eight years as a U.S. Congressman from the state of Iowa. He then made an attempt to "cruise" into the governorship of that state, but lost. Who was this ambitious fellow?

From Quiz Fred Who?

Answer: Fred Grandy

Fred Grandy was an actor who was best known for his character called Gopher in the television series "The Love Boat". While his acting career was going on, he also was interested in politics, a field in which he had interest since a very young age. He had some immediate ties to politics, being a roommate of David Eisenhower during his school years. He was best man as Eisenhower's wedding to Julie Nixon, the daughter of former President Richard Nixon. He also served as a speechwriter for a congressman in his home state of Iowa. In 1986, he ran for Congress in his home state, and won the seat by a scant 3000 votes. He went on to serve four terms in the U.S. House of Representatives before a failed bid for Governor ended his political career. Since then he has become a talk show host on both U.S. television and radio.

11. "Giselle" is the name of a ballet about an innocent maiden who falls in love with a nobleman disguised as a peasant. Who composed the music for this Ballet?

12. In 2007, who became Prime Minister of Britain?

From Quiz Famous Gordons

Answer: Gordon Brown

Glasgow-born Gordon Brown (b. 1951) became the UK Prime Minister on 27 June 2007. Prior to becoming Prime Minister, Brown served for ten years as Chancellor of the Exechequer under Tony Blair.

19. In English folklore, which 'Guy' has often been portrayed as a rival of Robin Hood for Maid Marian's affections?

From Quiz Guys and (Their) Dolls

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.

It is estimated that he was over 6 feet 2 inches tall which would have been highly unusual in the time that he lived. He was married to Eleanor of Castile and they had at least 14 children. When Eleanor died, her body was returned to London to be buried. Edward ordered a cross to mark the place where the cortege rested each night on its return to London - these became known as the Eleanor crosses (Charing Cross in London was named after one of these crosses).

She was treated dismissively but persevered to earn her medical degree in 1849. Since she was prevented from practicing in the US, she was advised to go to Paris. There she came down with a major eye infection, had a eye removed and a glass eye implanted. Always a fighter, she co-founded the New York Infirmary for Indigent Women and Children in 1857.

26. This famous, yet straight talking, chef is also a television personality and entrepreneur. Who is this culinary mastermind with fans on both sides of 'the pond'?

From Quiz Famous Gordons

Answer: Gordon James Ramsay

Scottish-born Gordon James Ramsay, OBE, (b. 1966) owns about 10 London restaurants and a further dozen around the world. His popular UK television series "Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares", led to Fox's "Hell's Kitchen" and "Kitchen Nightmares". He hosted another BBC show "The F-Word", for which he, himself, says "the 'F' stands for 'Food'!", although he is well known for his liberal use of obscene language! Originally from Toronto, Canada, Chef Jennifer Gordon divides her time between the Scottish borders where she owns a Bed and Breakfast - and Australia. She graduated with honors from the Humber College Chef apprenticeship program and completed her training in Ontario's finest Relais & Chateaux. She has both entered and won prizes in many pastry and chocolate competitions. American Chef Emeril JOHN Lagasse (b. 1959) is, like Gordon Ramsey, a brilliant, well-known chef and entertainer. All I have to add to that is "BAM!" Gordon Benson Ramsey (1926-2006), was a distinguised U.S. foreign service officer, composer and jazz musician.
