Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Mona Lisa

Answer: Neil Jordan

Irishman Neil Jordan is a man of many talents. He is a film director who won plaudits for "Mona Lisa" (1986), only his third major film, and then won an Oscar for "The Crying Game" (1992). He's also put his directorial skills to such films as "Interview With the Vampire" (1994), "The Butcher Boy" (1997), which earned him the Silver Bear Award and the BAFTA nominated "The End of the Affair" (1999).

For television, he created the hit series "The Borgias" (2011-13) for which he is the director, writer and executive producer. An accomplished author, his first collection of short stories "Night in Tunisia" (1976) would win him the Somerset Maugham Award in 1979.
2. Batman and Green Arrow

Answer: Neal Adams

Adams is an American cartoonist who has been inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame (1998), the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame (1999) and the Inkwell Awards Joe Sinnott Hall of Fame (2019), in part for some of his work in creating the modern imagery that we associate with the creations of both "Batman" and "Green Arrow".

Initially turned away by DC Comics, the owners of the aforementioned comic book heroes, he found work with Archie Comics before designing the "Ben Casey" strip for the Newspaper Enterprise Association syndicate in 1962.

He would obtain some freelance work with DC, shifted to Marvel Comics, where he worked on some issues of "X-Men" and "The Fantastic Four". In 1969 he began a collaboration with DC editor Julius Schwartz, which saw the re-invigoration of the "Batman" franchise. Together, the pair would take the caped crusader out of his campy arena and provide him with the brooding persona of the "Man-Bat" that we've come to know.

The transformation was such a success that he was then directed to create similar changes to heroes such as "Green Lantern" and "Green Arrow".
3. Sunderland Association Football Club

Answer: Niall Quinn

Quinn is a Dublin (Ireland) born striker who played soccer for Arsenal (67 games 1983-90), Manchester City (204 games 1990-96) and Sunderland (203 games 1996-2002). He would also make 92 senior appearances for the Irish national team, scoring 21 games, between 1986 and 2002. Quinn retired in 2003, briefly flirted with coaching, but then headed a consortium that purchased a controlling stake in the Sunderland Football Club.

Initially he'd installed himself as the club's manager but, after some poor results, stepped aside to concentrate on being the club's chairman and appointed Roy Keane to the manager's position.

The club found success under this partnership, re-entering the Premier League. Quinn would step down from the role in 2012.
4. Dr. Alan Grant

Answer: Sam Neill

Dr Alan Grant is, possibly, one of Sam Neill's most recognisable film roles, taking on the character in Steven Spielberg's 1993 blockbuster "Jurassic Park" and reprising the part eight years later in "Jurassic Park III" (2001).

Born in Ireland in 1947, Neill's family moved to New Zealand when he was seven. He would overcome a stuttering affliction to succeed in film, his first being a low budget New Zealand picture called "The City of No" (1971). The film world started to take more notice with success in, first, the film "Sleeping Dogs" (1977), followed by the lead male role, alongside Judy Davis, in Gillian Armstrong's "My Brilliant Career" (1979). His international break came with "The Omen III: The Final Conflict" (1981), where he played Damien Thorn, the son of the Devil. Such was his screen presence that he was looked upon as one of the favourites to take up the role of James Bond after Roger Moore, but that honour went to Timothy Dalton. He's furthered his career in film with roles in "A Cry in the Dark" (1988), "Dead Calm" (1989), alongside Nicole Kidman, and the multi award winning film "The Piano" (1993).
5. Davis Cup

Answer: Neale Fraser

Fraser is an Australian tennis legend, was captain of the Australian Davis Cup squad for twenty four years and became the first person to receive the ITF and International Hall of Fame's Davis Cup Award of Excellence. Over the course of his career he won thirty two Grand Slam tennis tournaments; seven singles, eighteen doubles and a further seven in mixed doubles.

In 1959, he was at the top of the game, being ranked the number one amateur in the world. That year he won the singles, doubles and mixed doubles at the US Open (then called the US National).

He repeated the feat the following year. Fifty nine years later, no one has managed to achieve that once, let alone back-to-back.
6. The E Street Band

Answer: Nils Lofgren

An incredibly gifted guitarist and piano player, Lofgren's career has spanned over fifty five years. During this period he has recorded twenty solo studio albums, worked alongside Bruce Springsteen as a member of the E Street Band for seven studio albums and two live sets. Adding to this, he has been an on-and-off member of Neil Young's band Crazy Horse since 1970, worked with him on four studio albums and two live sets, was a co-writer on Lou Reed's "The Bells" (1979) album and played guitar on two of Lou Gramm's solo works.

In between all this he had his own band called Grin, who recorded four albums between 1971 and 1973. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the E Street Band in 2014.
7. The Development of Logic

Answer: Martha Kneale

Martha Kneale was a British philosopher who was a Fellow in Philosophy at the Oxford University from 1936 to 1966. She became one of the first women to retain her Fellowship after marriage. She had married fellow philosopher William Kneale in 1938. Both of the Kneales would combine their talents to write the highly rated work, "The Development of Logic" (1962), with Martha's main contributions being the chapters on ancient Greek logic.

This would be the first major work produced on the history of logic since the turn of the century. Martha would continue to publish numerous works in the field of logic, preside over the Aristotelian Society in the early 1970s and raise two children, one of whom, Jane, would become an esteemed Professor of Philosophy in her own right.
8. Long Day's Journey into Night

Answer: Eugene O'Neill

Eugene O'Neill's drama, "Long Day's Journey into Night", written in 1941, first performed in 1956, is often cited as one of the finest US plays written during the twentieth century. It has often drawn similar praise to works such as "Death of a Salesman" (Arthur Miller, 1949) and "A Streetcar Named Desire" (Tennessee Williams, 1947).

The concept of realism, which rose to prominence during the 1870s, is a strong feature in O'Neill's works, a technique that he was amongst the first Americans to employ.

His works would gain acclaim from the outset. His first play, "Beyond the Horizon" (1920) would earn him a Pulitzer, as would "Anna Christie" (1922), "Strange Interlude" (1928) and the aforementioned "Long Day's Journey into Night" in 1957. In 1936, he would be awarded the Nobel Laureate for Literature.
9. Jeff Fenech

Answer: Azumah Nelson

At the conclusion of his career Azumah Nelson was seen as, arguably, the greatest boxer that Africa had produced. Certainly, he was Ghana's greatest in that time. By the end of 1978 his amateur career was winding up and he did so in style, finishing with a fifty win, two loss record and winning gold medals at both the All-African Games and the Commonwealth Games in the featherweight division.

He started his professional career the following year to little fanfare, thanks to his location. As a result, when he arrived at the Madison Square Garden in New York in 1982 for a crack at the WBC featherweight title against Salvador Sanchez he was the decided underdog despite being undefeated in his first thirteen professional bouts. He would lose the fight by a technical knockout in the fifteenth round but had gained enormous kudos from it. Two years later he would win the title by knocking out Wilfredo Gómez and then hold it for three years.

In 1988 he claimed the vacant WBC super-featherweight title by defeating Mario Martinez. However, the fight that drew the ire of the boxing world was his title defence against the Australian Jeff Fenech. Fenech was world title holder in three different weight divisions and was heavily favoured to win his fourth. In what was a ferocious fight over twelve rounds at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas the bout was declared a draw. An outcry followed as most of the boxing world felt that Fenech was "robbed". Nelson allowed Fenech a re-match in his home country (Australia), a little while later, and settled the issue by knocking the Australian out in the eighth round. Nelson would retire in 1998 with a 39 win, 6 loss and 2 tie record. Ten years later he would come out of retirement for a re-match against Fenech, however, on this occasion the result was reversed.
10. The Four Seasons

Answer: Nigel Kennedy

Born in England in 1956 Kennedy was deemed a child prodigy from an early age, able to play Fats Waller tunes on piano after listening to the recordings within his father's collection. The talent was obviously passed down the line; his grandfather Lauri was a leading cellist with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, while his grandmother Dorothy was a skilled pianist. Nigel's father John was with the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra before graduating to principal cellist with Sir Thomas Beecham's Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. His mother, Scylla, was also a notable pianist.

Nigel made his mark on the international stage with his recording of Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons" (1989), a release that sold a staggering three million copies, making it one of the biggest selling classical recordings of all time. Two years later he would stop performing publicly for almost five years. However, he didn't stop making music though he now ventured into, and experimented with, new genres. He toyed with rock music and jazz, collaborated with the likes of Kate Bush and Robert Plant and dabbled in Klezmer music with Kroke, a Polish jazz band.
