8. In 1801, Theodosia, the daughter of American Vice President Aaron Burr, and her husband Joseph Alston, followed by Jerome (brother of Napoleon Bonaparte) and his wife Elizabeth Bonaparte, in 1804, chose the same exotic place (at that time) for their honeymoons. What was the chosen location?

Answer: Niagara Falls

More than 200 years ago, Theodosia, the US Vice President's daughter and her husband, as well as Jerome Bonaparte and his wife, chose Niagara Falls as the location for their honeymoons. At that time, the early 1800s, this was a location extremely difficult to access, especially if one recalls there were no cars, no planes and practically no access roads. With innovation in transport systems, in the 19th and in 20th centuries the location became the "Honeymoon Capital of the World". Today millions of people visit the falls annually, not necessarily on their honeymoon but as a tourist spot as they are a great natural wonder.
9. "Death of a Salesman", "The Crucible" and "All my Sons" are highly successful plays. They debuted in the 20th century. Who was the author of these magnificent works?

Answer: Arthur Miller

The American Arthur Asher Miller (1915-2005) is considered one of the leading playwrights, essayists and screenwriters of the 20th century. He was born into a wealthy family that lost almost everything in the Wall Street Crash of 1929, a fact that forced him to work from an early age to pay for his studies.

At Michigan University, his first major was in journalism which he later switched to English. At university he learned "the dynamics of play construction". His career as a writer spanned over several decades.

His main plays are: "All my Sons", 1947, "Death of a Salesman", 1959, "The Crucible", 1953 and "A View from the Bridge", 1956.

Marilyn Monroe, born "NORMA" Jeane Mortenson was born in the United States in "1926" and died in 1962 at the age of "36". She was an actress, singer and model. She was a popular sex symbol and a top-billed actress in the 1950s. She had a small role in movies "Asphalt Jungle" and "All about EVE" in 1950. In 1953, she was the main star in the movie "NIAGARA". In the same year, in the movie "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes", an adaptation of the Broadway musical, Marilyn caused a strong impression by singing "DIAMONDS Are a Girl's Best Friend" and other songs.

As early as 1953, her leading sex symbol status was solidified when she appeared on the cover and in the centerfold in the first issue of the PLAYBOY magazine. She was married three times. Her last husband was the screen player and playwright ARTHUR MILLER; they were married from 1956 to 1961. He wrote the screenplay for the movie "The Misfits", in which Marilyn Monroe was the leading actress. At a party hosted by the Democratic Party in Madison Square Garden, on May 19, 1962, when the birthday of then President JOHN F.
