Couldn't Moulin Rouge fit the "Nightclub / performance venue" clue? It opened in 1889 and was still in operation in the early 20th century.

"Fraternity recruitment period" isn't general enough a clue, given the answer. You should think of a clue people in other countries and with other educational systems are more likely to get.

Relic ought to work for the last one--it was a movie wasn't it? I never heard of Memento....

You're probably thinking of THE Relic. One-word movies only.

The instructions say "single, English-language word". I'm not sure "Desperado" fits that description - not originally, anyway.

Neither does Poltergeist, as it is German for "noisy ghost".

It is of german origin but part of the english language. Not sure if that is the case for desperado. I do look at them differently, though dont know enough to say if it should or should not be included but I was surprised at it being here.

A "Speakeasy" was a bar during prohibition; wasn't aware that it was also a dancing venue.

I woyld suggest that Minions are not really henchmen. They are underlings at best.

"Henchmen" makes me think more of "Assassins" than "Minions". I believe that the Minions would be in charge of hiring the Assassin, not doing the deed themselves.

I wonder if Bodyguard would also work for Henchmen. Although it's plural so maybe not.

Ugh didnt get minons or collateral, cool quiz though, some were easy and some really made me think.

I did end up trying it but I always thought cabaret was the entertainment not the venue ( but I looked it up and apparently it can be both in english, guess it is another one of those language barrier things). It looks so weird seeing it as the answer for a building. (just as it would to you guys when a building where ballet was performed would be called ballet by someone)
