Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which actor, who earlier made a splash as Willie Mays Hays in "Major League", began his run as an action hero by playing an undercover operative who tried to thwart a terrorist hijacking in "Passenger 57"?

Answer: Wesley Snipes

"Passenger 57" (1992) was Wesley Snipes' breakout starring role. Prior to "57", he had played a series of supporting roles and second leads in such films as "Mo' Better Blues", "New Jack City", and "White Men Can't Jump". After "57" he went on to star in "Rising Sun", "To Wong Foo ...", "Murder at 1600", and the "Blade" vampire-hunter films.

His film career was sidetracked, however, in the mid-2000s by a series of legal troubles, including a 2008 conviction on multiple counts of failing to file US federal income tax returns.
2. What is the Roman numeral for 57?

Answer: LVII

The basic Roman numerals are I=1; V=5; X=10; L=50; C=100; D=500; and M=1000. Thus, the Roman numeral for 57 represents 50+5+1+1, or LVII. The incorrect options are LXII=62; XLVII=47; and CVII=107.
3. This retired player wore the number 57 from 1973-1986 as a very successful linebacker for the National Football League's Denver Broncos, who selected him to their 50th-Anniversary Team in 2010. However, he has become even more prominent since 1987 as a sports broadcaster on ESPN's studio NFL shows, "NFL Countdown" and "NFL Primetime", both of which have won multiple awards. Whose "Jacked Up!" segment is a popular feature of these shows?

Answer: Tom Jackson

Tom Jackson was elected to NFL's annual Pro Bowl from 1977-1979 and named All Pro from 1977-1979 and in 1984. ESPN's "NFL Countdown" has won seven sports Emmy Awards. It features Jackson as the most senior analyst and has been hosted by gravelly-voiced Chris Berman. Of the incorrect answers, John Elway was an NFL Hall of Fame quarterback for the Denver Broncos and the team's Executive Vice President of Football Operations.

He is not known as Jack, although both his father and one of his sons, both also named John, have been called Jack. Jack Lambert and Jack Ham were both NFL Hall of Fame linebackers from the Pittsburgh Steelers.
4. What element, with atomic symbol "La" and whose name comes from the Greek meaning "to lie hidden", has atomic number 57?

Answer: Lanthanum

Lanthanum is well named. It was discovered in 1839 by a Swedish chemist, but was not isolated in pure form until 1923. It is a silver-white metallic element usually found in combination with rare-earth minerals; and is only produced through a complicated process. Nevertheless, it is relatively abundant on Earth, and its compounds are used in lighting and heating elements, glass-making, and medicines.

The incorrect answers are all also elements: Aluminum (Atomic Symbol=Al, Atomic Number=13); Lawrencium (Lr, 103); and Lithium (Li, 3).
5. What multinational corporation is famous for its "57 Varieties"?

Answer: H.J. Heinz Co.

The H.J. Heinz Co. and its subsidiary brands make a large variety of food products, including the famous ketchup, pickles, and other condiments, frozen potatoes, and canned vegetables and soup. It owns the Lea and Perrins and Ore-Ida brands and operates the TGI Fridays restaurants and Weight Watchers(!). With corporate headquarters in Pittsburgh, PA (the Pittsburgh NFL stadium is named "Heinz Field"), the company operates facilities all over the world: the world's largest pickle factory in Holland, Michigan; the plant in Fremont, Ohio, that produces almost all the Heinz Ketchup; and factories in Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, and India.

The slogan "57 Varieties" was never intended to enumerate the actual number of Heinz products, of which there are thousands.

It was coined by company founder H.J. Heinz in 1896 because he liked the idea of advertising a numerical range of products and was partial to numbers ending in seven.
6. Fifty-seven is a prime number.

Answer: False

Prime numbers are defined as not being evenly divisible by numbers other than themselves or 1. The number 57 can be the product of 3 and 19: 3*19=57. Therefore, it is NOT a prime number. The two prime numbers on either side of 57 in numerical order are 53 and 59.
7. How do you say "fifty-seven" in French?

Answer: cinquante-sept

"Sattavana" is Hindi. "Zevenenvijftig" is Dutch. Lastly, "cinquantasette" is Italian.
8. What world-famous entertainment venue is located on 57th Street in New York City?

Answer: Carnegie Hall

Carnegie Hall is located on Seventh Avenue at 57th Street in New York City. Opened in 1891 and financed by industrialist Andrew Carnegie, the Hall is actually a complex of recital and concert spaces. Throughout its history it has featured performances by such legendary artists as Rachmaninoff, Stravinsky, Benny Goodman, Judy Garland, Bob Dylan, and the Beatles.

In addition, it serves as a cultural museum and provides educational programs to the New York community. The incorrect answers are all also located in New York City: Alice Tully Hall is located on Broadway and 65th Street as part of the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts; Madison Square Garden is located on Seventh Avenue between 31st and 33d Streets; and The Roseland Ballroom is located on West 52d Street.
9. Already a popular publishing franchise, what classic TV series premiered in the US in September 1957 and ran in various incarnations well into the twenty-first century?

Answer: Perry Mason

Inspired by the crime fiction of Erle Stanley Gardner, "Perry Mason" was first shown in the US on the CBS television network on September 21, 1957. The series was very successful and made household names of its stars Raymond Burr as Mason, Barbara Hale as secretary Della Street, William Hopper as P.I. Paul Drake, and William Talman as D.A. Hamilton Burger. Its initial run on CBS lasted until May of 1966; but it was revived, first unsuccessfully as a series with other actors in 1973, and later as a series of TV movies, many starring Burr and Hale, from 1985 through 1995. A new series started on HBO in 2020.

The incorrect answers were all also iconic 1950s TV series: "Gunsmoke" ran from 1955-1975; "Superman" ran from 1952-1958; and "Dragnet" ran in various forms from 1951-1959, 1967-1970, 1989-1991, and 2003-2004.
10. The international direct dialing country code is 57 for which country, home to the Centro Cultural Gabriel Garcia Marquez?

Answer: Colombia

Named for the Nobel Prize winning Colombian author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the Centro Cultural in Bogota contains a library of Colombian and South American literature, large gallery and exhibit spaces, and performance halls. The international dialing code for Argentina is 54, for Mexico is 52, and for Spain is 34.
