  4. A2, B4, C2, D3, E?, F2, G4, H1 (which is why half the girls my classes in school had my name), I2, J1 🙂

    • That is an interesting tidbit, Jennifer. I knew the movie was very popular, but never realized Aly McGraw’s name sparked a rage at the time. Fascinating! Thanks for sharing that.

  5. A. Heathcliff
    B. Wuthering Heights
    C. The Thorn birds
    D. Cleopatra
    E. 1940 (a total guess)
    F. Casanova (I bet he was tame compared to our society now)
    G. Montague (another guess)
    H. Love Story (cried so hard)
    I. I’ll say Wagner and Wood?
    J. Donald and Ivana

    I have made quite a few guesses so not sure how I went. Thanks for the fun quiz Sharon!

  6. A. Heathcliff
    B. Wuthering Heights

    E. 1936
    F. Casanova
    G. Capulet

    Love the questions fun trying to remember and looking some of it up.

  7. A. Heathcliff
    B. Wuthering Heights
    C. The Thorn Birds
    D. Cleopatra
    E. 1936
    F. Casanova and Don Juan were both known for this, although Casanova was a real person, and Don Juan was, perhaps, imaginary. Because he was a known person, I choose Casanova.
    G. Capulet
    H. Love Story ( sniff, sniff )
    I. DesiLu Productions
    J. Ken and Barbie
    Good morning, Sharon!

    This little exercise down the lane of ‘Romance’ was quite a treat! I remember so many of these movies/people, and their stories, while growing up in the 50’s-70’s; however, the saddest real-life story was, of course, the unfulfilled, and extremely anguished lives of Elizabeth and Richard. The heart wrenching movie, Love Story, is next in the line of deliciously sad movies, made for the screen, produced when I was yet a youngster. I still watch ‘ I love Lucy’ on YOutube, and, while I had several Barbies, originating when I was in grade school, I never owned a ‘Ken Doll’, in the flesh, or otherwise.

    Thanks for the great diversion on this rainy, jungle morning, in Belize C A .


    • Hey Debie! I have to say it is always such a joy and blessing to see your name! Brings back so many fond, fond memories. I love knowing you are well and happy in your jungle home. And here I think it a big deal to move from CA to KY! LOL!

      Thanks for following me, and supporting my writing. You are a dear friend and a wonderful sister in Christ. Many hugs to you. Give my love to Jim!

  8. I can’t wait to read A Season of Courtship. .. I’m addicted to everything P&P related and I am quickly becoming a fan of your writing. So glad I found the Austen Authors website and, through the site, your blog. I’m thoroughly enjoying everything I’ve read so far.

    • Oooooop, I forgot to leave my answers:

      A. Heathcliff
      B. Wuthering Heights
      C. The Thornbirds (I remember falling in love Bryon Brown)
      D. Cleopatra (she cheated on Eddie Fisher)
      E. 1936

      • Continued: I don’t know how that happened. … I’m going to take this tablet and chuck it out of the window (for the record, I hate touch screens).

        F. I always remember my mom saying Rudolph Valentino was considered the greatest lover of all time, but I am going to have to go with Casanova (although in my personal opinion, the character Valmont gets my vote 🙂 )
        G. Capulet
        H. Love Story
        I. Lucille Ball & Desi Arnaz
        J. Barbie & Ken

        • I didn’t think of Valmont as an option for lover. Good one! Of course, the difference between these lovers and Casanova is that he was a real person. Kind of tough to compare a literary lover with one who actually, ahem, did the deeds. LOL!

  9. A. Heathcliff
    B. Wuthering Heights
    C. The Thornbirds
    D. Cleopatra
    E. 1936
    F. Don Juan
    G. Capulet
    H. Love Story
    I. Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz
    J. Barbie and Ken

    Thanks for the fun contest! 🙂

I love to hear from you!
