Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which movie follows the lives of amateur athletes Harold Abrahams and Eric Liddell as they train for the 1924 Olympics?

Answer: Chariots of Fire

Cambridge University student Harold Abrahams and Scotsman Eric Liddell, born in China and destined to return there as a missionary, were sprinters representing Great Britain at the 1924 Olympics in Paris. However, the much anticipated matchup between Abrahams and Liddell never took place. "Chariots of Fire", although based on fact, does take some liberties with the characters and details of the competitions.

The film won four Oscars, two Palmes D'Or and the BAFTA Award for Best Film.

Question by player Humanist
2. Which of the following films did NOT feature Meryl Streep?

Answer: Dead Man Walking

Considered one of the greatest American film actors of all time, Meryl Streep began her feature film career in 1977's "Julia" and was still turning in performances in critically-praised and financially-profitable films well into the 21st century. Streep won Academy Awards for playing a mother seeking custody of her son (Supporting Actress) in 1979's "Kramer vs. Kramer"; a Holocaust survivor (Best Actress) in 1982's "Sophie's Choice"; and English Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (Best Actress) in 2011's "The Iron Lady".

However, Meryl Streep did not appear in 1995's "Dead Man Walking". The lead actress role in that film, and an Academy Award, went to Susan Sarandon.

3. Which of these movies from 2012 revolves around a college a capella group?

4. With a name which rhymes with the name of Mickey Mouse's pet dog, who was Popeye's burly rival for the affection of Olive Oyl?

Answer: Bluto

Bluto is the large beefy character with whom Popeye is usually brawling over Olive Oyl. Bluto was the name originally assigned to this character, and later he was also referred to as Brutus for reasons which escape me. Nevertheless, the conflict between the two occurred over the affection of Olive Oyl.

When all seemed lost to Popeye, that wonderful power food "Spinach" would enter the equation, and redress the balance. Popeye would prevail yet again.

5. Directed by and starring Clint Eastwood, which 2000 film also starred a former maverick as Captain, the Reverend, 'Tank' Sullivan?

Answer: Space Cowboys

A science fiction/adventure film, "Space Cowboys" takes four retired USAF members back into space to prevent a Soviet communication satellite from falling to Earth. In addition to Clint Eastwood, the film stars Donald Sutherland, Tommy Lee Jones, James Garner (who starred in the television series "Maverick" from 1957 - 1960) and James Cromwell.

6. After Tom Hanks played a character with romantic feelings for Sally Field's character in "Punchline" (1988), what was the nature of their relationship in "Forrest Gump" (1994)?

Answer: Tom Hanks played Sally Field's son

1988's "Punchline" featured Tom Hanks and Sally Field playing characters who were both stand-up comedians, and although Lilah Krytsick (Sally Field) was married to another man, her unwavering support in their comedic pursuits won Steven Gold (Tom Hanks) over, and he developed feelings for her in the film.

The two had quite a different bond in "Forrest Gump", where Sally Field played Mrs. Gump, the mother of Forrest (Tom Hanks). She supported Forrest and dispensed all the wisdom she could for Forrest to navigate life, his love for her revealed in all his "Mama always said..." comments.

8. Eddie Bracken is mistakenly taken for a God in this film. Can you name it? Here's a small clue. It is a colourful place!

Answer: Rainbow Island

He plays the part of an American pilot during WW2 who is shot down with his co-pilot (Barry Sullivan) on an Pacific Island. The natives are about to execute them when they notice that Eddie is the spitting image of their God "Mo-Mo" They release him and that's when the fun starts.

9. Michael Jackson sang the theme song 'Ben' from the 1972 movie of the same name. What kind of creature was Ben?

Answer: Rat

'Ben' stars Lee Montgomery as Danny, a boy who befriends a wild sewer rat. Ben the rat is the leader of a pack of rats who attack and kill people in this seventies horror/ thriller sequel to the movie 'Willard'. The song enjoyed more success than the film, reaching #1 in the U.S. for one week and winning a Golden Globe for best song, as well as receiving an Academy award nomination for best original song in 1973.

Question by player Paul1405
10. What children's movie, based on a Roald Dahl book about a neglected child, did Danny DeVito direct?

Answer: Matilda

All the movies mentioned are based on Roald Dahl books.
"Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" (1971) was directed by Mel Stuart. It is not about a neglected child, but about a poor one who, by pure luck, gets to live out his dream. "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" (2005) was based on the same story, and is a more faithful adaptation of the book. It was directed by Tim Burton.
"James and the Giant Peach" was directed by Henry Selick. It is about a young boy who has to live with his mean aunts after his parents die. After saving the life of a spider, a giant peach starts to grow in the garden. He enters the peach and has many adventures with the spider and other creatures.

"Matilda" (1996) is about an astonishingly bright young girl who is neglected by her family. Shortly before entering school, she finds out that she has magic powers. After honing her powers, she uses them to end the tyrannical rule of the current headmistress, and also help her teacher, whom she grows to love. Danny DeVito pulls quadruple duty on this film. In addition to directing, he also produced the film, appears as Harry Wormwood and does the narration throughout.
