In the US "show" is another word for "movie", at least for us elderly folks. "Let's go to the show", meaning "let's go to the movie". In olden times movies were also called "picture shows". I remember my grandmother talking about going to the picture show.

#12 is definitely my mom. :rofl:

#9 I know the quote but didn't know what movie it came from...one of those Vietnam War movies. I'll just have to assume Ivan got it right, though I don't think I've seen Apocalypse Now
Apocalypse Now is a Vietnam War movie, and if you haven't seen it, see it right now, or else...

My dad always insisted I get things done "P.D.Q, chop-chop". I know that the PDQ stood for 'pretty damn quick' but I don't know where he assimilated this phrase from. Anyone seen a movie or read a book with "PDQ, chop-chop" recurring in it ?

"Chop chop" was an expression used by Charlie Chan

Here in the US there was an old tv show where there was a chinese/japanese sidekick that always said "chop chop", meaning quick. I'm too tired to remember who it was. It might have been a cartoon, or there was a cartoon that made fun of the real life character, because I seem to remember both.

I believe you and tsu are talking about the same show. Anything about a 'PDQ' in it ?

Edit : On second thought, I don't want to derail this thread...there's still unanswered questions. I'm going after #7 if no one wants it by tomorrow.

I was thinking Charlie Chan, but I wasn't sure, and there was a cartoon parody of Chan. That's it!!

Oh - so that's why you call the movie business 'show business'. I understand now. :approve:

When you talk about 'Charlie Chan', are you actually referring to Jackie Chan? :uhh:

I meant the show cited by Marlon. :tongue:

I know Mary Poppins was a movie. It was about a nun that took a job watching some guy's kids in the Alps somewhere.

I may have been wrong the first time. However, I'm sure that I'm not wrong in saying that you're wrong this time, although you're right about the actress in both movies. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Great work guys, nearly all questions are solved correctly. Here is an update for now :

1) Enrico Caruso
3) Albert Einstein
4) Friedrich Nietzsche
6) JFK
8) Aristotle
9) Robert Duvall
10) Michael Jackson
12) Jack Frost (indeed Maryy Poppins says spit spot. "Just a spoon full of sugar makes the medicine go down, medicine go down, medicine go down. In the most delightful way")

Only 2, 5, 7 and 11 remain unsolved

marlon, thanks you all for participating...I am preparing a new quizz...

regards a tutti
