Nik Nak‘s Daily Teaser — 6-7-2017: Sly … !

*Yawn* … 

I’m up late … 

Actually, no I’m not … 

I’m up at the usual time.

But I went to bed, late!

Which is what happens when you do late night blogging about a newly discovered TV show.

Newly discovered, I should add.

American Horror Show has been around for a while, but I’ve only just seen the first series.

And it’s rather watchable: especially Jessica Lange!


But let’s move on, shall we … ?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi* putting in her answers: scoring five out of five in the process.

Let’s see how everyone does with today’s themed questions, shall we?

Here they are, along with the How To, License and video

Q1) Sylvester Stallone was born: on 6th July, 1946.   What’s his middle name: Francesco, Gardenzio or Ignazio?
Q2) He owns a company called Tiger Eye Productions.   Which promotes what: boxing, rock concerts or plays?
Q3) Stallone lives in a city in LA County, California.   Which city: Hollywood, Beverly Hills or Pasadena?
Q4) His first starring — ahem — role was in a soft-core film called The Party at Kitty and Stud’s.   The film has since been retitled The Italian … what: Job, Lover or Stallion?
Q5) One of Sly’s early roles was Machine Gun Joe Viterbo: in Death Race 2000.   Which English actor starred in the 2008, Death Race?
Q6) 1976, saw Sly hit the proverbial jackpot: with a hugely successful about a boxer.   What was the film called?
Q7) More to the point, what was the boxer called?   (First and last name, please, for preference: we’ve possibly worked out the nickname.)
Q8) Escape to Victory saw Sly break his finger: when his character saved a penalty kick.   The ball was kicked by a character played by who: Ossie Ardiles, Pele or Bobby Moore?
Q9) Sly Stallone and Karl Urban have both played a well-known comic book character.   Which comic book character: Batman, Judge Dredd or Sid the Sexist?
Q10) Finally … Sly has made a number of films about Vietnam veteran, John Rambo.   What’s the first Rambo film called?
Here’s yesterday’s questions and answers … 

Q1) The first black man to win Wimbledon, did so on 5th July, 1975.   Who was that man?
Q2) Traditionally, 5th July is Tynwald Day.   Tynwald Day is a holiday on which of the British Isles?
A2) The Isle of Mann.
Q3) Elvis recorded his first single: on 5th July, 1954.   Which single was it?
Q4) Cape Verde gained its independence: on 5th July, 1975.   From where?
A4) Portugal.
Q5) Finally … Jean Cocteau was born on 5th July, 1889.   1946 saw him release a film version of which fairy tale?
Here’s a song that seems appropriate … 

And a thought …
“The films are realistic fantasies. Bullets are easy. You can buy them. Emotions are not. They’re priceless.”
Sylvester Stallone.
Today’s questions will be answered in tomorrow’s Teaser.

Have a good day.

*        I’m just glad to be able to help, Debbi!   I’m going to have to keep me eyes for it when it’s released!

Let's hope! I just submitted it to a big contest. If I don't find a producer, I may just produce it myself! That's the thing these days. So much can be done oneself!
