Since lockdowns seem to be easing worldwide, this will prolly be the last one of these [pause for weeping and crying from the assembled masses].  But maybe not [shouts of joy and relief].

RE: Lockdown Trivia: The Final Chapter
It's been two days, and this thread as generated about as much interest as a dead hedgehog, so here's the answers:

1.  They were all musical guests on the first season of 'Rowan And Martin's Laugh-In'.

2.  They all made cameo appearances on the first season of 'Rowan And Martin's Laugh-In'.

3.  They are all descriptions (made by either Dick Martin or Judy Carne) of the Flying Fickle Finger of Fate award on 'Rowan And Martin's Laugh-In'.

4.  There was a lapse of at least ten years between the named film and its sequel: 'Mary Poppins' - 1964/'Mary Poppins Returns' - 2018; 'The Pink Panther'- 1964/'The Return of The Pink Panther' - 1975 (there were two Inspector Clouseau films intervening, but they didn't feature the Pink Panther diamond, so they don't qualify as 'sequels'); 'Toy Story 2' - 1999/'Toy Story 3' - 2010; 'Psycho' - 1960/'Psycho II' - 1983; 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' - 1974/'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2' - 1986.

5.  All items named were the 'last' in specific categories:

-'Cars' was the last film for which Paul Newman received an acting credit during his lifetime.

-John F. Kennedy was (as of this writing) the last American president to be assassinated.

-'The Tempest' was the last play to be solely authored by William Shakespeare.

-'Schindler's List' was (as of this writing) the last film for which John Williams won an Academy Award.

-Frederick Sanger was (again, as of this writing) the last person to win multiple Nobel Prizes.

Thanks. I enjoy doing them. I used to organize pub quizzes. I prefer doing it online. Less punching involved. Smile
