trivia 2/23

1. what is the oldest hamburger chain in the US?
2. what element in bananas helps prevent muscle cramps, making them a
favorite with tennis players?
3. what was studied by mary leaky and her husband, louis?
4. "gunsmoke" star james arness' played the title role in what 1951 movie?
5. which city has the distinction of being the most expensive in the world
to live in?
6. what tv crime fighter spent most of his time fighting an organization
called "THRUSH"
the movie that bank robber john dillinger had just seen before being gunned
down in front of Chicago's biograph theater on july 22, 1934, was frank
capra's "it happened one night".

1. white castle (white tower)
2. potassium (??)
5. tokyo (nyc??)
6. "the man from u.n.c.l.e." (??)
it's true that he saw a clark gable movie, but it was the gangster film
called "manhattan melodrama".
he had been set up by anna sage, a brothel madame who knew dillinger's
girlfriend, polly hamilton.
sage was facing deportation and thought the tip would help keep her in
america. she told fbi agent melvin purvis that she would be wearing red,
leading her to be dubbed "the woman in red".
dillinger was shot three times when he tried to escape, and sage wound up
being sent back to romania.
