Deep Blue Something, or possibly not.

We're a bit behind on trivia because of the holidays, too. We've only been going about every other week, as the popularity at this particular watering hole has slowed down; it's just not that much fun if there are only four teams, even if we do win more often. The trivia caller is, apparently, moving his gig to a new restaurant, so we'll see if that picks things up.

1. What occurred the day before the Passion of the Christ?

2. Which comedian famously stopped aging at 39?

3. Who was the last American man to win the Olympic marathon?

4. More Olympics: who was the only American to win a gold medal during the '68 Winter Games?

5. Who played Hazel?

6. Who sang the score for the film Breakfast at Tiffany's?

1. movies usually open on Friday, so I'll guess Thursday. Or maybe the last supper.

2. Jack Benny

3. I think it was the 72 Olympics...Short?

4. probably a downhill skier or a figure skater.

5. don't remember

6. I'm not sure what is meant by "sang the score." Johnny Mercer wrote "Moon River" and Audrey Hepburn may have sang that song. Don't know about the rest of the music.

5.Shirley Booth played Hazel.
6.I don't think Audrey Hepburn sang anything. Maybe Henry Mancini sang it.

Well, according to the YouTube clip, Audrey Hepburn did sing Moon River in the movie. But then Andy Williams had the big hit of it. Was there any other music?

1. The Last Supper

3. Frank Shorter ('68)
4. Peggy Fleming (Figure Skating)
5. Shirley Booth
6. Andy Williams was the answer we were given. This is one I should have researched before posting.
