Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 27-11-2017: Bruce Lee

OK, I’m feeling just a little bit rushed.

I’ve got a dentist’s appointment this morning: and I’ve taken to email some advise … ?

Has taken longer than I thought!   (Oh, you’ll find Disk Utility handy for formatting USB sticks, Debbi: and VERY easy to use!   Easier than Pages.)

So, without much further ado … ? 

~≈§≈~

We move on …

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Olga* and Debbi† putting in their answers: with both scoring five out of five.

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

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

Q1) 27th November saw the birth of actor and martial artist, Bruce Lee.   What was his birth name?
Q2) In which year?
Q3) Bruce was born in which US city?
Q4) He was brought up in Kowloon.   Kowloon is in which autonomous Chinese area?
Q5) Lee’s best known TV appearances — in the US and Kowloon — were in which 1966 series?
Q6) Lee taught a version of Kung Fu: whilst living in which S?
Q7) His versions of Kung Fu — Jun Fan Gung Fu and Jeet Kune Do — were based on one called what?
Q8) One of Lee’s best known feature films was The Big Boss.   What’s the film’s other title?
Q9) Way of The Dragon was released in China in 1972.   It was released in the US, as what?
Q10) Finally … What’s the name of Lee’s best known film?
Here’s yesterday’s questions and answers …

A1) 1942.
Q2) The film centres on an American nightclub owner called Rick Blaine.   Who played Rick?
Q3) Rick’s former lover was played by Ingrid Bergman.   What was her name?
A3) Ilsa Lund.
Q4) Who — according to Wikipedia — was the highest paid member of the film’s cast?
A4) Conrad Veidt, as Major Strasser.   (I couldn’t swear to it, but I think is should be spelt Straßer.)
Q5) Finally … As Time Goes By, one of Hollywood’s best known songs, is performed in the film: by a character called what?
A5) Sam.
Here’s a thought …
“Truth has no path. Truth is living and, therefore, changing.”
Bruce Lee.
And a tune … 


And another: as it mentions the Big Boss … 


Today’s questions will be answered in tomorrow’s Teaser.

How a good day.




*        Hang on, Olga‡ are we talking make up for the boys, or the girls?   :D   Either way, you’re right, it’s the money: and I suspect that, even for Jude, when there’s a prom, it’ll cost Ruth a fortune!   And I’ve seen The Cabinet of Dr Caligary: Veidt’s great in it.   (I saw Nosferatu at the same time: Caligari’s the better movie.   Once you’ve seen one Dracula … )

†        Yeah: I keep thinking I should pencil in Casablanca, Debbi‡: it’s just finding the time!   Always the way!   (Oh, you’ve got email!   Yes, I know Disk Utility looks intimidating: but it’s easier than Pages to use.   It’s just knowing which drop downs to use!)

‡        Debbi, Olga, you’ve probably realised Bruce Lee shares his birthday with Jimi Hendrix.   Bruce was a martial artist.   Jimi, on the other hand, was a Marshall artist.    Sorry, sorry … !
