Trivia Questions and Answers

140 Ghosts and Spirits in Entertainment Trivia Questions, Answers, and Fun Facts

Answer: Morgan le Fay of Arthurian Legend Fata Morgana is the Italian translation of Morgan le Fay. Morgan le Fay first appears in "Vita Merlini" by Geoffrey of Monmouth. In different incarnations she is either a fairy or fairy queen and a sorceress. She became linked to the island of Sicily through its association with Avalon. Many held that Sicily and Avalon were one and the same. The name came to be applied to the mirage that forms on the horizon of the ocean. The effect can distort the image of a ship on the horizon whether it is truly in line of site or has dropped beyond the horizon. It causes the ship to appear ghostly or as if it is floating. Its appearance was viewed as a bad omen by ancient sailors. This question was created by Phoenix Rising member tazman6619.
  From Quiz: Smoke on the Water
Answer: Boo In most games Boo is an enemy. He is a little white round ghost that often frightens Mario or Luigi. Typically, he cannot be defeated by jumping on him. In some games, Boo will disappear when directly looked at. Boo can also refer to an entire species of ghosts who mostly look the same or similar to each other and whose names are usually some kind of pun on the word "boo". Boos are ruled by King Boo, a giant boo with a crown on his head. In some games, Boo can be an ally or even a playable character.
  From Quiz: A Ghost of a Chance
Answer: Clyde "Pac-Man" was developed by Namco and released in the United States back in 1980. The arcade game proved to be incredibly popular. Players control Pac-Man as he eats pellets in a maze while being pursued by the four ghosts Clyde (Pokey who is orange), Blinky (Shadow who is red), Pinky (Speedy who is pink), and Inky (Bashful who is cyan colored).
  From Quiz: Entertaining Ghosties
Answer: He could stop time Elwood explained Harvey's ability this way: "Did I tell you he could stop clocks? Well, you've heard the expression 'His face would stop a clock'? Well, Harvey can look at your clock and stop it. And you can go anywhere you like - with anyone you like - and stay as long as you like. And when you get back, not one minute will have ticked by... You see, science has overcome time and space. Well, Harvey has overcome not only time and space - but any objections." The movie revolved around Elwood's sister's attempt to get him committed to a mental health institution because of his insistence on the existence of Harvey. Elwood was played by Jimmy Stewart and the sister was played by Josephine Hull. Hull won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress and Stewart was nominated for Best Actor.
  From Quiz: Imaginary Friends
Answer: Jacob Marley In Walt Disney's adaptation of this story, "Mickey's Christmas Carol" (1983), the role of Jacob Marley is played by Goofy. In Brian Henson's adaptation, "The Muppet Christmas Carol" (1992), Jacob and Robert Marley are played by Statler and Waldorf. In the whacky 1988 adaptation "Scrooged," the title role is played by Bill Murray and John Forsythe plays the Marley role as Lew Hayward.
  From Quiz: Ghosts Who Never Really Were
Answer: The Flying Dutchman The subject of Wagner's opera "Die Fliegende Hollander", the Flying Dutchman is supposedly condemned to sail forever. There are many versions of the story, some of which say that the vessel's captain can walk on land every seven years.
  From Quiz: Famous Ghosts
Answer: The Book Thief "The Book Thief" tells the story of a young girl named Liesel Meminger, who is forced to live with a foster family after her mother gives her and her brother up for adoption. Liesel's brother, Werner, dies on the train journey to Munich, and Liesel is left to live alone with her new foster parents, to whom she warms to over time. The story takes place before and also during World War II, and is told from the point of view of Death, who doesn't like the sheer amount of brutality that goes on during that time. Death is afraid of humans, but must collect the dead because he is the only one who can do that job. "The Book Thief" was on the 'New York Times' Children's Bestseller list for 105 weeks.
  From Quiz: Death and All His Friends
Answer: Hamlet The Ghost in Hamlet is that of his father, the late King Hamlet. The Ghost informs Hamlet that he was murdered by his brother, Claudius, and that Hamlet must avenge his death.
  From Quiz: Ghosts in Entertainment

  From Quiz: Haunted Characters
Answer: Horatio The others are characters who appear later in the play.
  From Quiz: Famous Spirits
Answer: The Moonsault Vaughan, formerly known as Leah Von Dutch, made her in-ring debut as a 24 year old in 2011 against Cherry Bomb. The following year she was named by the website "DivaDirt" as one of the "Five to Watch in 2012" and she made her on-camera debut in 2013. By 2017, when she stopped to take a "break" from the game, she had accumulated five titles, including the XBW (Extreme Bombshells Wrestling) championships. Among her finishing moves is the "Moonsault", which she has christened "The Flying Dutchman" as a play on her former name. In the move she uses the ropes as a springboard to launch into the air and do a backflip to land on her opponent. The questioned was slammed into the turn-buckle for Phoenix Rising by pollucci19.
Answer: Bernardo and Marcellus The Ghost first appears in Act 1 Scene 1 to the two soldiers Bernardo and Marcellus. The Ghost disappears before it can reveal its secret as morning has come. Horatio, whom the soldiers summoned, also sees the Ghost and recognizes it as that of the previous King Hamlet. The next night, Prince Hamlet sees his father's ghost and it tells him to avenge his death on his murderer: his brother King Claudius who has now married Queen Gertrude.
Answer: A Christmas Carol Charles Dickens wrote "A Christmas Carol" in 1843. The main character of the book is Ebenezer Scrooge who is a cold-hearted businessman who detests Christmas. The book traces the character's change of heart as he is visited by four ghosts on Christmas Eve. Some of the popular movie renditions of "A Christmas Carol" include "Scrooged" (1988) starring Bill Murray, "The Muppet Christmas Carol" (1992) starring Kermit the Frog, and Disney's "A Christmas Carol" (2009) starring Jim Carrey.
Answer: Calvin and Hobbes To everyone else Hobbes was just a stuffed toy tiger, but to Calvin he was a living, breathing friend. So was Hobbes just a figment of Calvin's imagination? The strip's creator Bill Watterson explained Hobbes this way: "Some reporter was writing a story on imaginary friends and they asked me for a comment, and I didn't do it because I really have absolutely no knowledge about imaginary friends. It would seem to me, though, that when you make up a friend for yourself, you would have somebody to agree with you, not to argue with you. So Hobbes is more real than I suspect any kid would dream up." Calvin was named after John Calvin, the 16th century French Reformation theologian, and Hobbes was named after Thomas Hobbes, the 17th century liberal philosopher famous for his social contract theory. The juxtaposition between the two names and the two men was not an accident and in many ways set the tone for what the strip would become.
Answer: Oscar Wilde "The Canterville Ghost" was the first short story written by Oscar Wilde to be published. The classic rendering of "The Canterville Ghost" into film was made in 1944 and starred Charles Laughton as the ghost. There are a number of rather remarkable parallels between this story and the more modern ghostly comedy "Bettlejuice".
Answer: Banshee The Banshee is often associated with Scots-Irish families who claim the spirit's appearance is a harbinger of a relative's death. It appears in the Walt Disney film "Darby O'Gill and the Little People".
Answer: The Wee Free Men Death, in the "Discworld" series, performs the job that he is known for - guiding souls from this world to the next. As with many other depictions of Death, he is a skeletal figure dressed in black robes with a scythe. His interest in humanity is what influence him to create a house for himself, and even attempt to play the banjo. This particular form of Death appears frequently in the "Discworld" novels, but usually only has a few lines of dialogue at most.
Answer: Bob Hope Bob Hope stars as Larry Lawrence (His middle name was Larry too-His parents had no imagination), who helps the lady in distress (played by Paulette Goddard) solve the mystery of ghosts inhabiting the family's ancestral home, located on a small island near Cuba.
Answer: He doesn't know what he did wrong Kafka's character has a pervasive sense of guilt - but he doesn't quite know why.
Answer: Witches Three witches - with prophecies.
Answer: Ability to travel over land "Age of Empires" was a popular historical-based computer game focused on events between the Stone Age and the Iron Age. It spawned a series of successful sequels and spinoffs. By typing cheat codes into the chat box, players could unlock a variety of special upgrades. "Flying Dutchman" converted all Catapult Trireme and Juggernaut units to Flying Dutchman units, though the three were indistinguishable by appearance alone. Flying Dutchman units were slightly more powerful and had the ability to travel over land and water. This question was crafted by Phoenix Rising member JCSon.
Answer: Gowron Gowron is a character from the "Star Trek" franchise. "Space Ghost Coast to Coast" is an adult cartoon series that is a parody of late night talk shows. Space Ghost hosts an intergalactic guest on his show and the interview usually and quickly turns into some kind of irrelevant tangent. Brak is a cat-like alien and frequent guest on the show. Zorak is the mantis-alien bandleader and Moltar is the lava-covered producer of the show.
Answer: Ghost Whisperer Jennifer Love Hewitt played the role of Melinda Gordon from September 2005 until May 2010. The character is an antiques seller living in Grandview, New York with her husband Jim and son Aiden. Many ghosts seek out Melinda's assistance in resolving unfinished business before passing over. The show was canceled after 107 episodes and five seasons despite establishing a large fan base.
Answer: A part of Danny brought out by his psychic abilities The movie does not make the connection between Danny and Tony as clear as the novel does. Danny has psychic abilities known as the 'shining'. These abilities allow him to read people's minds and speak telepathically with other people who have the same abilities. He could also see the past, present, and future through Tony, who appeared to be an imaginary friend. Later it is revealed that Tony is actually a future incarnation of Danny. He got his name Tony from Danny's middle name Anthony. It is explained thus: 1) "'Danny ... you're in a place down in your own mind. The place where I am. I'm a part of you, Danny.'" 2) "Tony was like looking into a magic mirror and seeing himself in ten years" 3) "Tony ... the Daniel Anthony Torrance that would someday be."
Answer: Ghostbusters Slimer reappeared in "Ghostbusters II" (1989) as well as in "Ghostbusters" cartoons, "Ghostbusters" comics and "Ghostbusters" video games. Slimer is originally captured in the Sedgewick Hotel but becomes a friend, ally and sort of mascot to the Ghostbusters.
Answer: Harry Houdini Houdini was born Ehrich Weiss in Budapest, Hungary and riased in Appleton, Wisconsin (his family moved to the USA when he was four years old). In addition to being a great magician, he had a real desire to learn the truth about a potential afterlife. Houdini went so far as to arrange messages with his friends that they agreed to try and tell each other after death.
Answer: The Sandman "The Sandman" comic book series revolves around a group of seven beings, known as The Endless, who are personifications of various universal concepts. Death is one, with Destiny, Dream, Destruction, Desire, Despair and Delirium being the other six. The Death portrayed in this series is different to that of usual depictions of Death. For starters, Death is a woman dressed in normal human clothing, not a thin, skeletal man draped in black robes. She possesses a friendly attitude and a good nature, a quality that has established her as one of the most popular of the characters in the series.
Answer: The Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man "Ghostbusters" starred Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Harold Ramis as three unemployed parapsychology investigators, who set up shop to rid the world of ghosts. Problems arise when evil is released upon the city and its up to the Ghostbusters to stop Gozer and save New York city.
Answer: The death of his mother The first sentence of the novel announces his mother's death.
Answer: Kim Novak Light comedy.
Answer: Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl The original "Pirates" movie revolved around the ship the Black Pearl and did not feature the Flying Dutchman at all. The other three all featured the ship. In "Dead Man's Chest" the Flying Dutchman is captained by Davy Jones. In "At World's End", Davy Jones still captains the Dutchman but he is controlled by Lord Cutler Beckett. In the final showdown Jones is killed by Will Turner who then becomes captain of the ship. In "Dead Men Tell No Tales", Will Turner's son, Henry, dives down to the Dutchman in order to get his father to help him retrieve Trident of Poseidon and break the curse the ship and his father are under. This question was created by Phoenix Rising member tazman6619.
Answer: Rose Byrne The fourth member was Kate McKinnon. The 2016 reboot of the classic film "Ghostbusters" featured a lead cast of four women. Melissa McCarthy played Dr. Abbey Yates, a paranormal researcher. Kristen Wiig was Dr. Erin Gilbert, a physicist. Leslie Jones played Patty, an MTA worker who knew New York City very well. Kate McKinnon played Dr. Jill Holtzmann. The four women form a team of ghostbusters who investigate the ghostly appearances.
Answer: Molly Malone "In Dublin's fair city, where the girls are so pretty, I first set my eyes on sweet Molly her ghost wheels her barrow through streets broad and narrow, crying cockles and mussels alive alive oh." Molly Malone is a fictional fishmonger made famous in Irish song. This famous tune has been recorded by such famous names as U2, Sinead O'Connor, Paul Harrington, The Saturdays, and The Dubliners. Annie Moore was an Irish woman remembered as the first person to pass through Ellis Island. Rosanna Davison was voted Miss World in 2003. Brigid of Kildare is one of Ireland's patron saints. She lived in the 5th and 6th century and is considered the patron saint of babies, blacksmiths, sailors, and dairymaids, among others.
Answer: James Patterson Although James Patterson is best known for his Alex Cross series of crime novels, he has also written the Michael Bennett and Women's Murder Club series as well as other nonfiction and even romance novels. "Sundays at Tiffany's" is one of these romance novels that was co-written with Gabrielle Charbonnet and tells the story of Jane Margaux, a soon to be ten year-old girl who spends Sundays at Tiffany's with her imaginary friend Michael. But after her tenth birthday he leaves her as is the tradition. The story follows their reunion when Jane becomes an adult.
Answer: Banquo There is a sense in which Banquo functions as Macbeth's conscience in the play, convicting him of the evil of his regicide. In Akira Kurosawa's fascinating adaptation of "Macbeth" in "Throne of Blood" (1957), the role of Banquo is played by Captain Miki, who functions similarly in the movie.
Answer: Hull House Hull House was originally the home of Charles Hull, but later became a welfare center. Jane Addams, the prominent progressive era reformer, was one of the center's founders and social workers. A story circulated that Addams had taken in a devil baby which had been born after a young woman's father had said he would rather have the Devil in his home than a picture of the Virgin Mary. Addams wrote about it in "The Second Twenty Years at Hull House."
Answer: Chess Widely considered as a classic of the film world, Ingmar Bergman's "The Seventh Seal" is a Swedish film about a knight who returns to his homeland after a crusade to find his country devastated by the Black Death. Death appears to Antonius Block, the main character, and has come to take his life. Block challenges Death to a game of chess - a scene that has become one of the most recognisable in the world. The personification of Death in this film is perhaps one of the most iconic - and parodied - in the industry. A pale, tall figure dressed in black robes represents Death in this.
Answer: Gary Busey Michael J. Fox stars as Frank Bannister, a psychic private detective, who investigates a series of murders in a small community. Jake Busey co-stars as the Ghost of Johnny Bartlett. Bannister can see and converse with ghosts, including John Astin (as the Judge) and Lee Emery (Sargeant Hiles), who runs the cemetery like a military post, and Jim Fyfe as bannister's friend Stuart.
Answer: Under the floor He hears the heart beating under the floor - and flips out.
Answer: William Peter Blatty Then came the Linda Blair blockbuster movie.
