Thought I'd post some Hollywood trivia. I will give the answers next week. No prizes unfortunately since I'm broke :( but pride is on the line. These questions come from the April 1940 issue of Photoplay. Remember, the were current as of 1940, so if they had more wives or something later, it doesn't count.
