UPDATED — TWICE
I’ve been in the process of rebranding my blog and revamping my website. So, in the interest of keeping this short and sweet, I’ll go right to the teaser questions. Feel free to leave your answers in the comments. Whoever gets the most correct answers will get a signed copy of my first novel, IDENTITY CRISIS. This contest is limited to players in the continental U.S. My apologies to my good friends in Ireland, the UK, and the rest of the world, but I’m running a business, right?
So, here we go!
1. Who was the first woman to direct a film noir?
2. Which film actress was born in Brooklyn and named Ruby Catherine Stevens?
3. Which actress was known widely for her “bitch” performances, as well as the lines “What a dump!” and “Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy night”?
4. What legendary film actress got her start through early self-promotion?
5. Which of the above actresses were renown rivals?
Bonus Question: What actress appeared in the movie, River of Gold, and what did her character say before she died?
Hint: don’t worry too much, if you don’t get all of the bonus question. I may have dreamed the last part of it. I’m not really sure, but I could swear it actually happened. Really!
Also, you have until the end of the day on Sunday to submit your answers.
Now, please read the following links.
So, to all my former Facebook friends, I hope you understand.

Anyhow, back on the subject of film noir, I love the ending of this movie.

Here’s a poem called Death by Bobbie Troy.
Oh, the irony! Ha!
I’m just a human being. I’m just a writer, trying to make a living on the Internet. I’m not famous. I’m not hot stuff. I’m just me. Period.
I’ll let this speak for itself … hmm …!

Uh … why not just shoot him? Ha!
Because then there’d be no movie.
This explains everything. I guess.
Here’s an appropriate quotation:

I found the answer … Yeah, right!
