Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What is the sum of the Korean parallel + Bruce Willis' monkeys?

The 38th parallel represents a circle of latitude 38 degrees north of the Earth's equatorial plane, separating North and South Korea. "12 Monkeys" is a 1995 science fiction movie directed by Terry Gilliam, and starring Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt in a post-apocalyptic future which faces a deadly plague that could destroy the human race.

38 + 12 = 50.
2. What is the sum of "Four score and seven years" + Cloverfield Lane's address?

Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address on November 19, 1863 referenced "four score and seven years"; a score is 20 years, so 20 x 4 = 80 years + 7 equals 87. The 2016 movie "10 Cloverfield Lane" is a scary film with John Goodman as Howard who takes a couple of people into his bunker, warning them that an alien attack has rendered the air outside unbreathable.

87 + 10 = 97.
3. What is the total of Samurai + the number of Molly's candles + Joseph Heller's "Catch"?

Akira Kurosawa directed the 1954 movie "7 Samurai" about a village calling upon warriors to help save them from bandits; it was updated and Americanized to become "The Magnificent Seven" in 1960 and 2016. Molly Ringwald starred in John Hughes' 1984 film "16 Candles" about a family forgetting their daughter's 16th birthday. Joseph Heller's "Catch-22", published in 1961, satirized the bureaucratic "military mentality".

7 + 16 + 22 = 45.
4. What is the sum of Kirk Douglas' days in May + Charlton Heston's days at Peking?

"7 Days in May" is a 1964 political thriller from the novel by Fletcher Knebel, directed by John Frankenheimer (who also did "The Manchurian Candidate"). Kirk Douglas and Burt Lancaster vie for the fate of the United States. Charlton Heston was the protagonist in the 1963 action flick "55 Days at Peking" which deals with the Boxer Rebellion in China in 1900.

7 + 55 = 62.
5. What is the result of the number of dalmatians + Nena's "Luftballoons"?

When you think of the animated film "101 Dalmatians", you might picture Glenn Close as Cruella de Vil, but that would be the 1996 version. The original animated film from 1961 had Betty Lou Gerson as the voice of Cruella who has her sights set on Pongo and Perdita's offspring. In 1983, the German band Nena put out an album "Nena Live" which included the anti-war song "99 Luftballoons".

101 + 99 = 200.
6. What is the sum of Martin Luther's Theses + John Buchan's Steps?

In 1517 Martin Luther posted his "Ninety-Five Theses" on the door of All Saints Church and other churches in Wittenberg, Germany. The treatise was subtitled "Disputation on the Power of Indulgences", and complained about the abuse of the power of the clergy. In 1915, Scottish author John Buchan's suspense novel "The 39 Steps" was published. It has been made into a movie several times, including Alfred Hitchcock's version in 1935.

95 + 39 = 134.
7. What is the sum of the bridge in "Feelin' Groovy" + the address of Rue Madeleine + the number of degrees of separation?

Simon and Garfunkel sang the "59th Street Bridge Song", also known as "Feelin' Groovy", released in 1966 on the album "Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme". The World War II spy drama from 1947, "13 Rue Madeleine", starred James Cagney as an officer who discovers there's a mole in his unit. Six degrees of separation deals with the idea that all worldly things are connected to each other by six steps or fewer.

59 + 13 + 6 = 78.
8. What is the total of Sleipnir's legs + Drew Barrymore's first dates + the days of Hanukkah?

In Norse mythology, the god Odin has a valiant steed named Sleipnir; what makes Sleipnir so unusual is that he is a large, muscular super fast horse with eight legs. Drew Barrymore stars with Adam Sandler in the 2004 movie "50 First Dates" where her character has lost her short-term memory and each date is like the first. In Judaism, the festival of Hanukkah is celebrated for eight days because the wicks of the menorah burned for eight days, instead of one.

8 + 50 + 8 = 66.
9. What is the sum of all the numbers on a roulette wheel + the number of the Rolling Stones' nervous breakdown?

The sum of all the numbers on a roulette wheel, from 0 to 36, adds up to 666 which is also "the Number of the Beast" or Satan. As the legend goes, Francois Blanc, a French casino owner, made a deal with the devil to learn the secrets of roulette. American roulette wheels also have a 00. In 1966, the Rolling Stones released the album "Got Live if You Want It!" which included the hit song "19th Nervous Breakdown".

666 + 19 = 685.
10. What is the total for blackjack + George Orwell's novel + William Holden's stalag?

Blackjack is a card game also known as "21" because any combination of picture cards with an ace (10 + 11) equals 21 which automatically wins. An ace can count as either 1 or 11, depending on the other cards. George Orwell's dystopian novel "1984" was first published in 1949 and warned us about "Big Brother" and "newspeak". "Stalag 17" was a 1953 movie set in a World War II prison camp, starring William Holden.

21 + 1984 + 17 = 2022.
