Trivia Minute Update: April 4, 2017

We’ll start off with a random trivia question: Which actors played the character of Jay Gatsby in the 1949, 1974, and 2013 film versions of “The Great Gatsby”?

We’ll have the answer later in the show.

Today is International Landmine Awareness Day, Children’s Day in Hong Kong and Taiwan; Independence Day in Senegal.

It’s unofficially World Rat Day, National Tell a Lie Day, and International Carrot Day.

It’s the birthday of musician Muddy Waters, who was born in 1915; writer Maya Angelou, who was born in 1928; and actor Robert Downey Jr., who is 52.

Now, we’ll spin the wheel to pick a year at random.

This week in 1974, the top song in the U.S. was “Hooked on a Feeling” by Blue Swede.

The No. 1 movie was “The Great Gatsby,” while the novel “Burr” by Gore Vidal topped the New York Times Bestsellers list.

 

Weekly question: What is the second fastest land mammal?

Submit your answer at triviapeople.com/test and we’ll add the name of the person with the first correct answer to our winner’s wall … at triviapeople.com. We’ll have the correct answer on Friday’s episode.
