Ginger Trivia, Round One...
The answers to these are posted WAY below the 'movie list' on the right-hand side of the blog...now, y'all COULD 'Google' or 'Wiki' (if allowed in your area), but what is the challenge in THAT, I ask you?
Hope this will be an enriching experience for all...and please, if any discrepancies arise, feel free to comment - as a lot of these are derived from various and sundry locations on the world-wide web, thus open for review...
Good Luck! JW

Thanks again, JW
