I need to do my homework :-(I didn't do too well at all... My excuse is I wasnt really awake yet :-)Great quiz though, Derek, some tricky stuff there.
I have done it at 47%, but frankly, it was difficult somewhere, and somewhere not too relevant. Otherwise good play and it should be repeated. Barnabas
Thanks for giving it a go, Vince!(And do let us know if there's anything in the quiz that surprised you.)Depending on the amount of time I have over the coming weeks, I may add the occasional quiz on specific subjects (e.g. films, recordings) at some stage. Any suggestions are welcome!CheersDerek

Sorry about the confusion, Steff. The photo was actually taken in 1946 as part of the advance publicity for the 1947 tour. Regardless, an 86% score is pretty impressive!
Hi Barnabas: I think that as well as being informative, Derek
intended the quiz to be a bit of fun, therefore, I’m surprised that you found it not too
relevant-after all I don’t think it was intended as a test for admission to a
OK! I have to stop doing these quizzes when I first wake up & impatiently answer the first answer that comes into my head, I'm only getting in the 60ish% each time :-(The "would-be mother-in-law" question almost fried my brain :-) & the aria that Mario sang in one film but didn't know in another is a great question, bravo, Derek! You should work on "Mastermind" :-)
I was not aware about "Seven Hills of Rome" being based on "Rainy Evening." I rather would have assigned that to a film like "Serenade," but of course "Serenade" was based on the novel of the same name (It was a rainy evening in "For the First Time" too, right at the beginning of the film, correct?)
Oh! It sounds like a great plan, if he had had a smooth time making "The Student Prince" everything changes, it is absolutely the key moment in his career after the 1947 Hollywood Bowl appearance.But if Mario appears in "The Student Prince" it is a big hit, I would love to think that Mario in the right frame of mind would have gone through with that plan or even a version of it...(Mario puncuates almost as badly as me...)

Vince's posting the other day of a contestant's performance on the British Mastermind whose specialty was Mario Lanza has inspired me to create my own Lanza quiz:There are thirty questions of varying difficulty, all with multiple-choice answers. Take the quiz, and then let us know how you got on!
