Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The film "Chocolat" (2000) featured Johnny Depp and starred which French actress as the character Vianne Rocher?

Answer: Juliette Binoche

The film was based on a book written by Joanne Harris, and is about a young woman opening a chocolate shop in a French village. The mayor, played by Alfred Molina, sees the shop as immoral, especially as it opens during Lent. The film also featured Judi Dench and Leslie Caron, who starred in "Gigi" (1958). The other options are also well known French actresses.
2. The operetta 'The Chocolate Soldier' was written by Oscar Straus and used which George Bernard Shaw work as its inspiration?

Answer: Arms and the Man

All the options are plays written by Shaw. 'Arms and the Man' was written in 1894, 'Man and Superman' in 1902/3, 'Major Barbara' in 1905 and 'Pygmalion' in 1912/13. Shaw himself was not impressed by the operetta, describing it as 'a putrid opera bouffe' (comic opera) according to Wikipedia, and refusing to allow Franz Léhar the rights to setting 'Pygmalion' to music in 1921. That play was eventually adapted in 1956 after Shaw's death, famously becoming known as 'My Fair Lady'.
3. The World Chocolate Wonderland theme park, featuring chocolate models of the country's sites, opened in January 2010 in which Asian capital?

Answer: Beijing

The theme park is in Beijing, not far from the Bird's Nest stadium used for the Olympic Games in 2008. It includes models of the Great Wall of China, the Terracotta Army and a BMW car, as well as clothing and porcelain all constructed from chocolate. The displays are in temperature controlled halls, and protected by glass, to prevent melting.
4. A series of horror comics, which ran from 1950 - 1961, shared its name with which brand of Nestlé chocolates?

Answer: Black Magic

The comics were published by Prize Comics and were produced by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, who created Captain America. They also worked together at DC Comics, who republished some of the Black Magic titles in the early 1970s. The chocolates named Black Magic and Dairy Box are the dark and milk chocolate versions of a mixture of chocolates inside the box. Mars and Milky Way are both brands of Mars, Incorporated.
5. The 2005 novel, 'Friends, Lovers, Chocolate', was written by which author, also known for his series about 'The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency'?

Answer: Alexander McCall Smith

McCall Smith was born in 1948 in Bulawayo, which was known as Southern Rhodesia at the time, and is now Zimbabwe. He studied law at Edinburgh University and began writing books for children in the 1980s. His most successful books have been a series of novels about Precious Ramotswe, a female detective in Botswana. 'Friends, Lovers, Chocolate' is the second novel in a series featuring the character Isabel Dalhousie.
6. Based on a novel by Laura Esquivel, the 1992 film referred to which beverage in its title of 'Like _______ for Chocolate'?

Answer: Water

Set in Mexico, the film is about the youngest daughter in a family who is not allowed to marry the love of her life as she has, by tradition, to stay at home to care for her mother. The lover marries her older sister instead, to enable him to stay close to his real love. The film was the most successful Spanish language film, by box office takings, at the time of its release.
7. Chocolate syrup was famously used as fake blood in which Hitchcock film?

Answer: Psycho

The film was made in black and white in 1960, so the chocolate syrup appeared to be the right consistency for blood in the famous shower scene where Janet Leigh is stabbed to death. The brand used was Bosco Chocolate Syrup, originally produced in 1928, and it had been used in other black and white films to represent blood.

The other films were made in 1963 ("The Birds"), 1954 ("Rear Window") and 1958 ("Vertigo").
8. Both Gene Wilder and Johnny Depp have portrayed Willy Wonka in films. Which author created the character?

Answer: Roald Dahl

Dahl's book "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" was published in 1964 and was filmed in 1971 as "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" with Gene Wilder. The film was remade with Johnny Depp in 2005, this time using the same title as the book. Dahl was reportedly unhappy with the 1971 film, believing that it strayed too far from his novel, and the trustees of his estate are said to have only given permission for the remake once Tim Burton agreed to direct the new version.
9. The 1941 film 'The Chocolate Soldier' starred which well known singer/actor?

Answer: Nelson Eddy

Although it used the title of Straus's operetta of the same name and incorporated much of his music, George Bernard Shaw refused permission for the plot of his play to be used in the film. Instead, MGM used the plot of a play, originally called 'Testör' and renamed 'The Guardsman', by the Hungarian writer Ferenc Molnár. Nelson Eddy was a huge star at that time, often appearing with Jeanette MacDonald as his co-star.

His other films include 'Rose Marie' (1936) and 'Phantom of the Opera' (1943).
10. The chocolate factory was one of the levels in the 1989 computer game 'Winter's Tail', which featured which food loving cartoon cat?

Answer: Garfield

The game was released for the Atari ST, Amiga, ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64 computers, and featured Garfield dreaming of food, as usual. The player had to manipulate Garfield on skis, in a lasagna factory and in the chocolate factory where a chicken is laying chocolate eggs. Finally, Garfield had to skate across a frozen lake in pursuit of the chicken. Odie, the dog from Jim Davis's cartoon, also appeared in the game as Garfield's opponent.
