Third Sunday Quiz

Forgot is was Sunday for a moment there...

OK the rules are the same as last time - you need to get who the picture is of, and then have a go at the bonus question... big kudos goes to the winner!

Shiela Rowbotham, influential socialist feminist: she published a memoir in 2000, what was in called?
Huey Newton, co-founder of the Black Panthers: in '74 Newton fled the US after being accused of the murder of Kathleen Smith, a young prostitute - what country did he flee to?
Ernesto Che Guevara: Argentinian revolutionary in disguise: how did he get his nickname Che?
Lenin: Russian Revolutionary - in a fool proof disguise (by wearing a cap): where was he when this photo was taken?
Bela Lugosi: early screen actor, seen here as Nosferatu: appropriately Lugosi appeared as a vampire in a film after he had died - what was the film? How was it for you?

Che Guevara and Lenin are two of them - can't guess the rest!

I forgot to say - if you hover your mouse over the pic you get the naswer - plus the bonus question... well done on getting guevara - i think that's one that you need to know as he looks nothing like himself (proper disguise unlike lenin's)

The hovering thing didn't work with my elderly computer, si I'm hungry for the bonus question. (I assumed "how was it for you?" was the bonus). I got everyone except Che and Lenin - but by god Che's disguise is good!

This is a disaster Bob! It throws my whole quiz system into chaos!

This is what you would see for each pic...

a)Shiela Rowbotham, influential socialist feminist: she published a memoir in 2000, what was in called?

b)Huey Newton, co-founder of the Black Panthers: in '74 Newton fled the US after being accused of the murder of Kathleen Smith, a young prostitute - what country did he flee to?

c) Ernesto Che Guevara: Argentinian revolutionary in disguise: how did he get his nickname Che?

d) Lenin: Russian Revolutionary - in a fool proof disguise (by wearing a cap): where was he when this photo was taken?

e) Bela Lugosi: early screen actor, seen here as Nosferatu: appropriately Lugosi appeared as a vampire in a film after he had died - what was the film?

Stop this madness.That picture is of the vampire Orlok in Murnau's Nosferatu - played by Max Schreck. Lugosi played a much more conventional-looking Dracula (okay, he created the convention) in the 1930s and was still going strong for a posthumous appearance in Plan 9 from Outer Space.

badmatthew, this is intolerable! It's bad enough that I made a mistake, but for you to then point it out, thereby humiliating me, is an outrage.

Cough.

Of course you are correct, hrmpf.
