Put Your Movie, TV and Music Trivia Knowledge to the Test
1 in stock
Created by Joe Franklin – one of show business’s enduring personalities – this book is guaranteed to provide hours of pure enjoyment for anyone who loves to be quizzed about movies, television, radio or music. Joe has created a trivia game – in book form – that provides over 1000 delightful entertainment-oriented questions. Drawing from his own unique knowledge of the entertainment field, Joe not only offers challenging questions but also includes lots of interesting information on the answers.
But there’s more. Most other books of this type irritatingly reveal the answers directly below the questions or group them together with all the other answers. This book is designed in a way that allows the reader to see only one answer at the appropriate time. This way the reader can actually play along. There are also fascinating insets throughout the book that relate wonderful show business anecdotes. And after nearly forty years of interviewing over 300,000 guests, Joe certainly has some great stories to tell and he shares them with readers for the first time. For example who was Marilyn Monroe’s co-writer on her first autobiography? Why it was a young Joe Franklin!
While other trivia books may get their questions and answers from previously published references, Joe Franklin has the unique distinction of drawing information from his long-time involvement in the business that he so dearly loves – and that so dearly loves him.
Joe Franklin began his remarkable show biz career as a New York talk-and-variety show host in 1951. His show’s format set the standard for many other shows of this type that followed. His guest list reads like a who’s who of celeb royalty: Rudy Vallee, George Jessel, Otto Preminger, Ronald Reagan, Barbra Streisand, Joan Rivers, Bette Midler, Liza Minnelli, Flip Wilson, Bill Cosby, the Jackson Five – and that’s just for starters. Joe holds the World Record for hosting the most TV shows – 31,015 in all.
