Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. As my first guest passed the plate of succulent, tender roast beef, which he thought to be awesome, to one of my other guests, he quickly exclaimed, "I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse!" Which actor is credited with making that very statement?

Answer: Marlon Brando

Marlon Brando played the role of Don Vito Corleone, in "The Godfather" (1972). He was well known for the memorable phrase, "I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse!" Mr. Brando was born on the third of April, 1924 in Omaha, Nebraska, USA. As Don Corleone, he was the head of the Corleone crime family.

His voice was raspy, he was cunning and his family was a large part of the Mafia empire. The quote "I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse" meant that his offer would be given with a threat to obey or else suffer some ugly consequences.

This was how he decided that he would convince a producer to put Johnny Fontane (played by Al Martino) in the movie that Johnny wanted to be in.
2. Readily accepting the plate of roast beef, the next guest replied with a smirk and a furrowed brow, "Go ahead, make my day", as he happily helped himself to a couple of slices of the tender roast and asked the piano player to play "Misty"! Which of my guests said that?

Answer: Clint Eastwood

Clint Eastwood, an icon of macho movie stars, was responsible for the quote while in the character of Harry Callahan, in "Sudden Impact" (1983). The catchphrase was written by Joseph C. Stinson. Harry Callahan went into a diner to have a cup of coffee and discovered a robbery in progress.

After a shootout, one surviving robber held a gun to the head of the waitress. This was when Harry pointed his .44 Magnum revolver at the culprit and said "Go ahead, make my day." The "Make My Day Law", passed in the U.S.A., got its name from this phrase. Clint Eastwood played the part of Harry Callahan in "Dirty Harry" (1971), "Magnum Force" (1973), "The Enforcer" (1976) and "The Dead Pool" (1988) as well. Eastwood's career has been highly successful for more than 40 years.

He was born on May 31, 1930, in San Francisco, California, USA.
3. Claiming to be a grossed out by all of this "meaty" talk, my next guest, a beautiful Southern belle, who dwelt on a cotton plantation called Tara, lost her appetite. Without even thinking, she exclaimed, "As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again." Which actress, seated at my dinner table, made this remark?

Answer: Vivien Leigh

Vivien Leigh made the statement, "As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again." in her role as Scarlett O'Hara in "Gone with the Wind" (1939). This was her vow, as she swore to rise above the losses she faced. When Scarlett returned to Tara she found that her mother had died and the slaves had gone.

Her plantation "Tara" suffered losses caused by the Civil War and the Yankees had taken everything. Her father had lost his mind so Scarlett had to work very hard in the fields to make money. She made her family do the same, so they could all look after themselves.

This dramatic quote referred to how hungry they all were because there was nothing left behind and how they would surely rise above the despair. Vivien Leigh was born on the fifth of November, 1913 in Darjeeling, West Bengal, British India (now known as India).

Her birth name was Vivian Mary Hartley. She received an Oscar Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role, for her part as Scarlett O'Hara. She later received a second Oscar Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her part in "A Streetcar Named Desire" (1951).

She died on July 7, 1967.
4. Feeling amused by the over exaggeration by our previous guest, my next dinner guest quickly blurted out her own remark of "Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death!" Which of my dinner guests, who once played the part of Rose Hovick, the mother of Gypsy Rose Lee, made this statement?

Answer: Rosalind Russell

In the movie "Auntie Mame" (1958), it was Rosalind Russell, as Auntie Mame, who uttered the line, "Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death!" She declared this to be her motto, when she tried to calm Agnes with a glass of whiskey, since Agnes was to be Mr. O'Bannion's date at a party. Rosalind Russell entered the world on June 4, 1907 in Waterbury, Connecticut, USA.

She was the middle child out of seven children. Ms. Russell won the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture Actress in a Musical/Comedy for her role in "Auntie Mame".
5. When the arguing was seemingly about to begin, on whether or not to eat, my next guest cleverly stated, while waving his cool hand, "What we've got here is failure to communicate." Who was this wise guest of mine?

Answer: Strother Martin

Strother Martin was quick to squelch the arguing when he said "What we've got is failure to communicate" which was one of his lines as the prison Captain in "Cool Hand Luke" (1967). He said this to Paul Newman "Luke" while beating him for his refusal to conform to the chain-gang life. Strother Martin was born on March 26, 1919 in Kokomo, Indiana.

He was an active actor from 1950 to 1980. Some of the films in which he acted included "Rooster Cogburn" (1975), "The Sons of Katie Elder" (1965) and "Nightwing" (1979). Strother Martin died of a heart attack in 1980 when he was only 61 years old.
6. I agreed with my wise guest and steered the conversation in another direction as I brought out a fine dessert! Eying the double fudge chocolate cake, this guest's eyes melted and his tongue licked his lips. He surely was thinking 'batter up' as he said "Today, I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the Earth." Can you please tell me which of my guests made this comment?

Answer: Gary Cooper

One of Gary Cooper's lines as Henry Louis 'Lou' Gehrig in "The Pride of the Yankees" (1942) was "Today, I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth." The story was based on the true story of Lou Gehrig. The quote was made in the beginning of a speech which was given by the character of Gehrig. The speech was made from home plate at Yankee Stadium, when Gehrig retired.
The life of Frank James 'Gary' Cooper lasted from May 7, 1901 to May 13, 1961. Mr. Cooper won separate Oscars for his roles as Will Kane in "High Noon" (1952) and as Sgt. Alvin York in "Sergeant York" (1941).
7. With that being said my next guest, drooling with anticipation, quickly quipped a splendid remark of his own. With glowing eyes and a cue to Sam, the piano player, he said, "The stuff that dreams are made of" and took a large bite out of the double fudge chocolate cake. Who was this guest?

Answer: Humphrey Bogart

Humphrey Bogart's line, "The stuff that dreams are made of", came from his role as Sam Spade in "The Maltese Falcon" (1941). Spade had just called the police so he could turn in the fake falcon and the money that Gutman had given him. He could also turn Brigid in to the police. Detective Sergeant Tom Polhaus picked up the fake statuette and asked what it was, which is when Spade said the famous quote. Humphrey Bogart was born on Christmas Day in 1899 in New York City, New York, USA.

He died on the fourteenth of January, 1957. Bogart usually played roles of cynical characters who ended up showing the viewer their noble sides. Bogart had a lisp when he spoke and a distinctive nasal voice.

Some of the great films that Bogart played roles in included "Casablanca" (1942), "The African Queen" (1951) and "To Have and Have Not" (1944).

When he died, at the age of 57, he weighed only 80 pounds.
8. Feeling full enough from dinner and wanting to keep her girlish figure, as long as she could 'turn back time' that is, this actress used a line from one of her movies, as she refused dessert. She said, "Bobo, take the cart away." Who said this?

Answer: Cher

The character Loretta Castorini in the film "Moonstruck" (1987) was played by Cher. When her character was in the restaurant with Johnny Cammareri (played by Danny Aiello) the waiter named Bobo (played by Robert Weil) had come by with the dessert cart. Johnny had just asked Loretta to marry her, so she didn't want Bobo there interrupting things. Cher was born on May 20, 1946 in El Centro, California, USA.

She was born Cherilyn Sarkisian LaPierre. Some of the great films she has acted in include "Silkwood" (1983), "Mask" (1985), "The Witches of Eastwick" (198) and "Mermaids" (1990).
9. Well, dessert was over and now it was time to serve my guests some after dinner drinks. Out of the blue I heard this delightful Scottish guest mutter, "A martini. Shaken, not stirred." Who said that?

Answer: Sean Connery

Sean Connery was born August 25, 1930 in Scotland. He is best known for his suave, sophisticated role of James Bond. Before Connery was an actor he held many jobs, such as a laborer, a milkman and a coffin polisher. Some of the films in which Connery has had a part in included "Darby O'Gill and the Little People" (1959), "Murder on the Orient Express" (1974), "The Untouchables" (1987), and "Finding Forrester" (2000), aside from his many films in the role of James Bond.
