Trivia Time - Part 59 - the Answers

I noticed in a recent post that some were wondering how I come up with my Trivia Time questions. Just to re-affirm what I've said in earlier posts...I make up all the questions myself, I don't copy them from games or books or other websites. They are the products of my twisted little mind and/or the warped mind of my rocket-scientist (no kidding!) wife.

By the way, thanks to everyone who sent prayers and good wishes; the medical issue is now resolved, but last week was pretty intense. I hope all and sundry had a Happy Thanksgiving and ate plenty of turkey (without watching too many turkeys of the cinematic variety!).

Here are the answers to the Trivia Time posted two weeks ago:

1. Who was the male star of the film, Because They're Young?

Answer: Dick Clark
