Trivia Time - Part 56 - the Answers

This is a short post because so many of you participated this week and did VERY well!

8. Name the stars of the ABC TV series, The Young Lawyers.

Answer: Zalman King, Judy Pace, and Lee J. Cobb

10. Between his work for the BBC and his feature films, Ken Russell made docudramas and films about six different composers. Name the composers.

Answer: This was difficult, and I didn't really expect anyone to get it. At the BBC: Elgar, Debussy, and Delius. Feature films: Tchaikovsky (The Music Lovers), Mahler (Mahler), and Liszt (Lisztomania). Late-breaking news: after we posted this question, I actually discovered another Russell film about a composer: a made-for-TV movie called The Strange Affliction of Anton Bruckner. Which makes seven.


  1. Darn it, I knew Ken Russell's The Music Lovers because it's one of my favorite movies. I don't know how I overlooked that. I didn't know any of the others, though. I will have to rectify that situation!

  2. Becks, the Ken Russell BBC stuff is out on DVD: "Ken Russell at the BBC", 3-disk set.
