Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What was the name of the house which featured in the 1940 film, "Rebecca"?

Answer: Manderley

"Rebecca" was a novel written by Daphne du Maurier that was first published in 1938. It featured the famous opening line, "Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again", quoted about the house, which featured so prominently during the story. The main characters in the book were the jealous housekeeper Mrs Danvers, the house owner Maxim de Winter, his deceased first wife Rebecca, and his new second wife Mrs de Winter, who also narrated the story.

The 1940 film version featured Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine.
2. Which of these taglines is associated with the 1996 film "Emma" that starred Gwyneth Paltrow in the lead role?

Answer: Cupid is armed and dangerous!

The tagline "Cupid is armed and dangerous!" was meant to infer that the title character Emma played Cupid, the Roman god of love, by using devious tactics to match-make between the men and women in her life.

Gwyneth Paltrow played Emma Woodhouse, the main protagonist of the film. Lively, compassionate, but ever so slightly spoiled, her aim in life was to match-make for her friends and family. That was until her neighbour, Mr Knightley, towed her into line with his gentle criticism and feelings of love. The tagline "Five good reasons to stay single" was from "Four Weddings and a Funeral" (1994), "Love is in the hair" was from "There's Something About Mary" (1998), and "This ain't no chick flick!" from the comedy, "Chicken Run" (2000).
3. Which two actors starred in the 1962 film version of "Lolita"?

Answer: Shelley Winters and James Mason

Sue Lyon played the part of young Lolita, daughter of a frustrated widow, played by Shelley Winters. Along came a British professor into their lives, played by James Mason, who was seeking somewhere to stay during his tenure at a university in Ohio. The much older professor soon became infatuated with Lolita, and married the widow just to remain close to her daughter. Directed by Stanley Kubrick, the film was based on the story written by Vladimir Nabokov.

Double Academy Award winning, American actress Shelley Winters was known for her role in the films "The Diary of Anne Frank" (1959) and "The Poseidon Adventure" (1972). James Mason was a British actor, famous for "The Wicked Lady" (1945) and "Georgy Girl" (1966).
4. Which young actress played the title role in the 1996 film, "Matilda"?

Answer: Mara Wilson

Also starring Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman, this cute fantasy film was based on the children's book written by Roald Dahl. Matilda lived with her parents and brother but she grew increasingly frustrated by their ignorance and turned to reading books to escape real life. Forced to attend a school run by the wicked headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, it soon became evident that Matilda had magic powers and used these to comedic effect during the film to get revenge on her elders. Mara Wilson was a former child actor born in 1987 who also starred in the 1993 comedy, "Mrs Doubtfire", with Robin Williams.
5. "Iris" was a 2001 film which starred Judi Dench and Kate Winslet in the lead role. What was the surname of the famous British novelist they portrayed?

Answer: Murdoch

Kate Winslet starred as the young outgoing Iris Murdoch and the film started at the beginning of her relationship with introvert, John Bayley, played by Hugh Bonneville. The film followed their life together, including the harrowing time when the much older Iris was riddled by Alzheimer's disease.

The older version was played by Judi Dench, with Jim Broadbent as the increasingly frustrated Bayley. Broadbent won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Iris Murdoch in real life created several books from 1954 to 1995 including "Under the Net" and "A Severed Head".
6. In which 2013 film did we see Julianne Moore and Chloe Grace Moretz play mother and daughter?

Answer: Carrie

"Carrie" was a 1974 horror story written by Stephen King. The 2013 film version was the third film adaptation to be made and featured Chloe Grace Moretz in the title role. Carrie was previously played by Dakota Fanning in the 2005 version, and made famous by Sissy Spacek in the original 1976 version. Bullied at school and at home by her religious mother, Carrie used her telekinetic powers to seek revenge, which culminated at the school prom after a bucket of pig's blood was thrown over her head.
7. Which animated film included the characters Miss April Spink, Miss Miriam Forcible, and Mr Bobinsky?

Answer: Coraline

Dakota Fanning voiced the young girl Coraline in the 2009 animated film which also starred Terri Hatcher as the mother. Coraline lived in a dilapidated house with her mother and father, the two spinsters Miss April Spink and Miss Miriam Forcible, and with a retired Russian acrobat, Mr Bobinsky. Coraline found a way through a hidden door to a parallel world where doppelgangers of the real world existed. One such doppelganger was in fact a wicked witch who was after Coraline's soul and wanted to replace her real eyes with button eyes. Jennifer Saunders and Dawn French voiced the characters Miss April Spink and Miss Miriam Forcible, while Ian McShane voiced Mr Bobinsky.
8. Which of these actresses starred in the 2011 thriller, "Hanna"?

Answer: Saoirse Ronan

Described by a film critic as a "surreal fairy tale", "Hanna" starred American/Irish actress Saoirse Ronan in the lead role. The actress first came to prominence as the younger sister of Keira Knightley in the 2007 film, "Atonement". Hanna was trained from a young age to become an assassin by her ex-CIA agent father, but she became the hunted when another CIA agent tried to kill her.

The film also starred Eric Bana as her father and Cate Blanchett as the other agent who was trying to track her down.
9. Audrey Tautou starred in the 2001 romantic comedy film "Amelie". What job did she have?

Answer: Waitress

The 2001 film was a surprise hit in America, although it was spoken in French and had English subtitles. The sweet romantic comedy was about Amelie, an innocent Parisian waitress who found a hidden metal box in her apartment containing childhood memorabilia belonging to a former child tenant. Amelie located the boy, who was by this time an adult, and gave him the box. The film then followed Amelie as she bought simple pleasures to other people she met.

An elderly patron at the bar where Amelie worked took an interest in her and realised how lonely she was. It was through talking to the patron that she admitted her love for a young man she had bumped into, although too shy to approach him when she organised a meeting with him at the bar. The patron once again intervened until Amelie found the courage to follow her heart.
10. Meryl Streep and Amy Adams starred in which 2009 film?

Answer: Julie and Julia

Written and directed by Nora Ephron, the film "Julie and Julia" followed the lives of two very different women during different time periods. Meryl Streep starred as American chef, Julia Child, who studied cooking in France and authored the book, "Mastering the Art of French Cooking". Years later, Julia Powell used the book to recreate all 524 recipes over the period of a year, writing her experiences on a blog for all to read about.
