Well, 10 out of 20 isn't that bad considering the test is heavily US-oriented and I wasn't even born at that time. I should have been able to guess McQueen and Warhol though. As for Carter, I knew it was Linda something but Drew a blank on the last name.

I remembered Lynda Carter, blanked on Suzanne Somer, but think I did okay considering I was only alive for less than a year of this decade.

Steve McQueen is the least-guessed answer? There are ten people there I've never even heard about.

I saw it when it was in theaters - a LONG time ago. I remembered Paul Newman and William Holden but just didn't remember Steve McQueen.

He (Steve McQueen) was the fire chief (and one of the few to survive the deluge)

My brain got stuck insisting McQueen died in a car crash (because apparently he was James Dean) and wouldn't let me think of anyone except Paul Newman (who also died of cancer) for that question.

Could not spell 'Eval Kenevil' for the life of me...agree that accepting more spellings would be nice. And yes, it's Somers.

The correct spelling is Comăneci (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nadia_Com%C4%83neci...)

Fixed the spelling. The quiz accepts tons of different spellings for that one. If you get most of the consonants in the right place it will work.

I surprised so few got Ms. Carter. She is the reason they are STILL having so many problems casting for Wonder Woman... Lynda set the bar too high for everyone else.
