Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Pry Doff Rang Inns Tine

Answer: Elsa Lanchester

The 1935 movie "Bride of Frankenstein" begins with Mary Shelley (Lanchester) telling her husband Percy and friend Lord Byron what has happened after Frankenstein (Colin Clive) and his monster had supposedly died. Of course both have survived the climax of the original movie, with the monster on the loose and the professor about to marry. Enter evil Dr Pretorius (Ernest Thesiger), whose goal is to provide a bride for the monster (Boris Karloff). When he eventually succeeds, Lanchester plays her too.

Elsa Lanchester (1902-1986) was born in London, England and had a long career in movies before dying in Los Angeles aged 84. She was twice nominated for Best Supporting Actress Oscars, for "Come to the Stable" (1949) and "Witness for the Prosecution" (1957). Though she didn't win the Oscar, she did receive a Golden Globe for the 1957 movie.
2. Dull Id Dull Prints Hess

Answer: Shirley Temple

In "The Little Princess" (1939), Shirley plays a little girl whose father (Ian Hunter) has gone off to fight in the Boer War, leaving her well-provided for in a boarding school for girls. Things go wrong when he is listed as missing in action and his cheques stop arriving at the school. Though she is no longer treated like a little princess, the youngster doesn't give up hope and with the help of her friend Bertie (Arthur Treacher) keeps looking for her father. Temple and Treacher perform "Knock'd 'em in the Old Kent Road" together in this movie.

Shirley Temple (1928-2014) was born and died in California. Her acting career began at age three, and before she was 20 she had made over 50 movies. She made only a few more after that age, and her greatest success was as a little girl with ringlets in movies such as "Curly Top" (1933), "Wee Willie Winkie" and "Heidi" (both 1937). She received a Juvenile Award from the Academy of Motion Pictures in 1935, recognising her work in the previous year.
3. Tug Ray Ups Over Hath

Answer: Jane Darwell

Jane Darwell plays Ma Joad in "The Grapes of Wrath" (1940), and though her Oscar is for Best Supporting Actress, she is the female lead of both the movie and the Joad family. Henry Fonda stars as her son, Tom Joad, and they try to hold the family together during their cross-country trek from the dust bowl of Oklahoma to California's promised land. Darwell has the closing lines of the movie: "They can't wipe us out; they can't lick us. We'll go on forever, Pa, 'cause we're the people."

Patti Woodard, from Palmyra, Missouri became Jane Darwell (1879-1967), and died in California at the age of 87. Her career began in 1913 when she appeared in a number of short movies, and her last film appearance was as the Bird Lady in "Mary Poppins" in 1964. In between she appeared in about 200 other films and TV series.
4. Oh Quinoa Smythe Ali

Answer: Maureen O'Hara

Knowing that "quinoa" is pronounced "keenwa" will have helped you to identify "How Green Was My Valley" (1941) as the movie here. Maureen O'Hara plays Angharad Morgan, who initially helps her mother care for her father and coal mining brothers in their Welsh valley, and later marries the mine owner's son (despite having feelings for Mr Gruffydd, played by Walter Pidgeon). Among the movie's five Oscars is the big one - Best Picture.

Maureen O'Hara, nee FitzSimons (1920-2015) was born in Ireland and died in Idaho, aged 95. Her many movie credits included "Jamaica Inn" (1939), "Miracle on 34th Street" (1947), "The Quiet Man" (1952) and "McLintock!" (1963). She received a Lifetime Achievement Oscar not long before her death.
5. Hank Hers Haw Hay

Answer: Kathryn Grayson

In "Anchors Aweigh" (1945), Grayson plays a singer with an operatic voice who hopes to audition for Jose Iturbi. She's also in charge of her little nephew (Dean Stockwell) who wants to join the navy, and the object of attention of two sailors (Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra). The child doesn't get to join the navy, but pretty much everything else works out satisfactorily. This is the movie in which Gene Kelly dances with Jerry, the cartoon mouse, a number not to be missed if you are a fan of either.

Kathryn Grayson (1922-2010) was Zelma Hedrick when she was born in North Carolina. She died aged 88 in Los Angeles. Her singing voice was showcased in films like "Showboat" (1951) and "Kiss Me Kate" (1953).
6. Tallest I'm Eyesore Bear His

Answer: Elizabeth Taylor

"The Last Time I Saw Paris" (1954) is told in flashback, as the former American soldier, Charles (Van Johnson) recalls his life in Paris just after WWII, when he is married to Helen (Taylor) and attempting to be an author. Their life together deteriorates and ends tragically.

Well-known for her many marriages and her beautiful violet eyes, Elizabeth Taylor (1932-2011) was born in England and died in Los Angeles aged 79. She began making movies at age ten, and starred in "National Velvet" (1944) two years later. She made the transition to adult roles more successfully than many child stars, going on to star in "Father of the Bride" (1950), "Giant" (1956), "Cleopatra" (1963) and many other films. She won Best Actress Oscars for "Butterfield 8" (1960) and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (1966), and was nominated on three other occasions.
7. Billowed Hawk

Answer: Doris Day

"Pillow Talk" (1959) is a romantic comedy in which Jan Morrow (Day), an interior decorator, shares a telephone party line with Brad Allen (Rock Hudson), a song writer with a taste for chasing women. They don't like each other, but he takes advantage of the telephone situation to pretend to be someone else and complications ensue. Doris sings the title song.

Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, and celebrated her 96th birthday in 2018. As Doris Day she had an acting career that started in 1948 with "Romance on the High Seas" and continued until 1973 when her self-named television show came to an end. She was Oscar-nominated once, for "Pillow Talk". Her voice has continued to be heard in TV and movie soundtracks.
8. Doll Hung Hissed Hay

Answer: Irina Demick

"The Longest Day" (1962) is an all-star epic telling the story of the 1944 D-Day invasion of Normandy through vignettes spotlighting many of the participants: British, American, French and German. Demick (aka Demich) plays a French resistance member, Janine Boitard, who is (in real life) credited with having saved 68 downed airmen from capture. In a largely male cast, Demick is one of the few featured women, having one prominent scene on a bicycle.

Irina Demick (1936-2004) was born in France, and died at only 67 in Indianapolis, Indiana. She had been a model, and having made one French film was 'discovered' by Darryl F. Zanuck and given the role in "The Longest Day". She made fewer than 20 movies, many of them in France or Italy, with "Up from the Beach" (also about D-Day) and "Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines" (both 1965) probably being the best known to English-speaking audiences.
9. Cher Aid

Answer: Audrey Hepburn

"Charade" (1963) is a delightful caper movie full of romance, murder and philately. Hepburn is recently widowed Reggie Lampert, who is caught up in problems of her late husband's making. Helping her fend off the bad guys is a suave gent of many names (Cary Grant), with whom she inevitably falls in love. I'll leave you to watch the film to find out where the philately fits in.

Audrey Hepburn (1929-1993) was born in Belgium and died far too young (63) in Switzerland. Her movie career spanned 40 years, 1949 - 89 and included roles in "Roman Holiday" (1953), "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (1961) and "Always" (1989). She won an Oscar for "Roman Holiday" and received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award posthumously.
10. My Reap Hop Hens

Answer: Julie Andrews

"Mary Poppins" (1964) is a feel-good, happy movie that can also bring a tear to the eye, especially if you are feeding the birds. Julie Andrews plays the title role, a magical super-nanny who arrives just when the Banks children need her most. She and her friend Bert (Dick Van Dyke) take them on some wonderful adventures, and solve all of the Banks family's problems, leaving them happily flying kites and singing about it.

Note that although both Elsa Lanchester and Jane Darwell also appear in this film, neither of them star (as required by the title), and also that this is the only possible match for Julie Andrews.

Julie Andrews was born Julia Wells, in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, England in 1935 and began performing a young age. Her wonderful singing voice soon took her to both the London stage and Broadway where she starred in "My Fair Lady" and "Camelot". Having lost the movie role in "My Fair Lady" to Audrey Hepburn, Julie turned her film debut in "Mary Poppins" into an Oscar-winner. She went on to star in "The Sound of Music" (1965), "Victor Victoria" (1982) and many others, including voicing the Queen in several "Shrek" movies in the early 21st century.
