I GOOFED

Cassandra has been having difficulty posting her answers direct to the blog, so she's been e-mailing me and I have been cutting and pasting them. Somehow I accidentally published her answers to question #8 before others had a chance to answer. I have no other recourse but to cancel that question. I'm so sorry. I still don't know how I did that.

For the record, the movie was Carmen Jones (1954). The star was Dorothy Dandridge, and the actresses who spoke the lines in the quotes were Pearl Bailey and Diahann Carroll. The movie's distrinction is that it was the first to feature an performance by an African-American actress that was nominated for a leading role. Cassandra got all parts of the question correct.

Tune in tomorrow for the first of the last 3 questions.

Well dang,

I go away for a couple of days from Cyberland and look what happens! I completely forgot about the lightning round, though my little voice kept telling me to go online and check your blog. Poopies!

Oh well. I'm still in it and looking forward to the next few questions. I'm not going out like that!

I can't keep up with these ladies. They are good!!! :)

Carmen Jones is one of my top 10 favorite movies of all time. It ranks up there with A Raisin in the Sun and Sparkle.
