Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Take Kim Basinger's "Weeks" and add them to Charlie Sheen's "Men". Now divide that total by the number of "Blind Mice". What is your grand total?

(Kim Basinger's "Weeks" [9.5] + Charlie Sheen's "Men" [2.5]) / # of "Blind Mice" [3]= 4.

Kim starred in a movie with Mickey Rourke titled "9 1/2 Weeks". Charlie Sheen has received Emmy nominations for his role on "Two and a Half Men". The last reference is the Nursery Rhyme "Three Blind Mice".
2. Let's start with Bruce Willis' number of "Blocks". Take that and multiply it by the number of musical Motown "Tops". What is your grand total?

Bruce Willis' "Blocks" [16] x # of "Tops" [4] = 64

Bruce had a 2006 film with Mos Def called "16 Blocks". And the '60s Motown Group with such hits as "I Can't Help Myself" and "Bernadette" is The Four Tops.
3. Start by taking the "Angry Men" Movie number, and squaring it. From that, subtract Toto's Song Title Girlfriend number. Take that result, and divide it by Dave Clark's Group number. After all that, what is your Grand Total?

(("Angry Men" #)^2 [144]- Toto's Song Title Girlfriend #[99]) / Dave Clark's Group # [5] = 9

"12 Angry Men" was a movie done in the '50s starring Henry Fonda, and redone for Showtime in the '90s starring Jack Lemmon and George C. Scott. In the 1970s, Toto had a song where they referred to the title girl as "99". And finally, the '60s featured a rock band called Dave Clark Five.
4. Take the factorial of Will Smith's "Degrees of Separation". Or in short form, (Will's "Degrees of Separation")! What is your Grand Total?

The factorial, or "!" symbol represents taking all digits below, and including, the number in the equation times each other, i.e. 4! = 1x2x3x4=24. In this answer, (Will Smith's "Degrees of Separation" [6]) ! = 720, or 1x2x3x4x5x6.

Will Smith had one of his earliest movie roles in a 1993 film with Stockard Channing called "Six Degrees of Separation".
5. Take Raquel Welch's "Years B.C." number. Now divide that by Natalie Merchant's number of "Maniacs". What is your Grand Total?

Raquel Welch's "Years B.C." [1,000,000] / Natalie Merchant's # of "Maniacs" [10,000] = 100

Raquel starred in the 1966 movie "One Million Years B.C.". While Natalie Merchant is a solo singer now, she spent 12 years as lead singer for the band "10,000 Maniacs".
6. Take Don Adams' Agent Number. Divide it by Richard Petty's most common Stock Car number. Take that result and multiply it by Gerard Butler's number of Spartans in his movie title. What is your Grand total?

(Don Adams' Agent # [86] / Richard Petty's most common Stock Car # [43]) x Gerard Butler's # of Spartans [300]= 600

Don Adams appeared on the '60s sit-com "Get Smart" as Agent 86. Richard Petty spent, with very minor exceptions, his entire career with a big "43" on the side of his stock car. And Gerard Butler starred as King Leonidas in the 2007 film "300".
7. Take Warhol's "Minutes of Fame" number. Divide that by the number of theatrical "Godfather" Movies. Take the result to the power of the number of Steve Martin's "Amigos". What is the Grand Total?

(Warhol's "Minutes of Fame" [15]/ # of "Godfather" Movies [3]) ^ (# of Steve Martin's "Amigos") [3]

Andy Warhol's famous phrase states "everyone will be famous for 15 minutes". "The Godfather" had three releases in its trilogy. And Steve Martin starred with Chevy Chase and Martin Short in the 1986 film "Three Amigos".
8. Take Fred Gwynne and Joe E. Ross' Car number. Add to that Jason Priestly and Luke Perry's ZIP Code. What is the Grand Total?

Fred Gwynne and Joe E. Ross' Car # [54] + Jason Priestly and Luke Perry's ZIP Code [90210] = 90,264 or 90264

Fred and Joe starred in the early '60s police sit-com, "Car 54, Where Are You?". And Jason and Luke got their big break on the quintessential teen drama "Beverly Hills 90210".

10. Take Zager & Evans' "Year". From that, subtract Sherlock Holmes' Address number, without the "B". Divide that result by the number of "Tons" Ernie Ford loaded. What is the Grand Total?

(Zager & Evans "Year" [2525]- Sherlock Holmes' Address # without the "B" [221]) / # of "Tons" Ernie Ford Loaded [16] = 144

Zager & Evans earned the title of One-Hit Wonder with the #1 hit of 1969, "In the Year 2525". Sherlock Holmes' address is 221B Baker Street. And Tennessee Ernie Ford had a #1 hit in 1955 with "Sixteen Tons".
