16-13.

Sugar Ray Robinson.

Spoonful of Sugar.

Emile Griffith killed Benny "The Kid" Paret in the ring, but that is another story for another day.

One each for Since You've Been Gone, a song I love and love and love.
I was in the city on Thursday, I met Sugar Ray Robinson. Someone said he was him - or - his son - or his father. I will go look it up to see if he really is.

B - Very old streetcars from the St.Charles line in this city were used to aid the 1920's atmosphere in the gangster film, Miller's Crossing.

G-L-O-R-I-A. Betya Simon does not know that one either. But that is not the point for tonight...

B - Film directors continue to show long-distance trains -- by which I mean trains going a stop or two after Poughkeepsie, and even beyond Schenectady, to places like Chicago or LA.-- leaving this New York landmark. In real life the long-distance trains aint there anymore.

G - What classic make and model of aircraft does Ingrid appear to be ready to get into, but not Bogie, at the end of Casablanca?

Q6-EXTRA- CLOSING CREDITS.

B - Whose version of "My Way' closes "Goodfellas" credits?

G --Dusty overwhelms me with "The Look of Love", in the soundtrack to this "outlier"movie, but I did not know, or perhaps, remember, until I watched its closing credits a few weeks ago.....

that the title theme song has lyrics!

The hit version was a rousing vigorous instrumental for Herb Alpert, and Brass and all.
Someone other than me wrote the word Poughkeepsie!!!!

Grand Central

no idea

Old Blue Eyes

no idea

You wrote Poughkeepsie!!!!!
