Were you aware of a comic book villain named the Riddler, whose garb always featured one or more question marks? Did you know that, on the campy 1960s TV show Batman, the Riddler, who was usually played by Frank Gorshin (pictured), was once played by John Astin?
Are you familiar with the song Question by the Moody Blues [LISTEN], which got up to #21 on the Billboard charts in 1970? Do you recognize Questions 67 And 68 by Chicago [LISTEN], ne the Chicago Transit Authority, which got only to #71 in 1969, but was re-released and went to #24 in 1971?
Should I introduce you to the group ? [question mark] and the Mysterians? Have you heard their hit, 96 Tears [LISTEN], which got up to #1 in 1966?
Did you know that when you enter your link onto that Linky thing at ABC Wednesday, one or more of our team will come to visit your post? Were you informed that you should check the Linky link to make sure it works with your post? Have you read in the rules that your post should both mention ABC Wednesday AND have an appropriate mention of the week's letter, such as Q is for Quotations?
Am I excited to see what quaint, quirky items you are going to share this week?
I have a question! Why am I so ignorant about all these wonderful movies you mention. Do you think we don't have them here in Europe?? Anyway your introduction of Q is marvellous. I stick to my (former) Queen and country!ReplyDelete
You QUICKLY covered "Q" in a great way. KateReplyDelete
DID you know that they still show the Batmobile from the show at San Diego Comic-con? It is as beautiful and awesome in "life" as it is on the show! It truly was the classiest of the batmobiles, in my humble opinion.ReplyDelete
I well remember the Riddler and I love the photo. Fun introduction to Q.ReplyDelete
Quick and Quirky description for the letter Q!ReplyDelete
How could you forget Mr Q from the James bond Series ;)
so right, Master! questions is the first word of which I thought when pondering 'q'. I had forgotten about Moody Blues' song; glad you linked it! oh, Frank acted so eeringly well as that character!ReplyDelete
I thought of Q from James Bond too! Terrific photo of the Riddler (any more of that stare would Quickly make me Queasy:)ReplyDelete
So many Questions for the letter Q!ReplyDelete
Living in So Cal has its perks, among them was the experience of meeting Frank Gorshin at a Car Show in the 1990s.
It was at Route 66 weekend in San Bernardino and we were helping set-up and work part of the show for our car club,Mr Gorshin was setting up his table with photos and such in the autograph area. I went all fangirl on him as we approached the table saying "I didn't know you were going to be here!!!" He leaped up and leaned out across the table and shouted "I didn't know YOU were going to be here either!!!" Everyone in earshot fell apart laughing! He was a charming and funny guy full of talent.
questions is my post for this weekReplyDelete
And "question"is mine too!ReplyDelete
Quite forgotten the Riddler, a qurious qaracter indeed...ReplyDelete
I used to love the Riddler, he was such a quack! And Moody Blues, I won tickets to their concert once, is was awesome:) I'm starting to think you are something like a walking encyclopedia... I know, no q's here, so I'll sign off by saying I think you're a qool guy!ReplyDelete
