2. Why is Sacchen littlefeather famous?
#She is the person marlon brando sent to receive the oscar he won for 'The Godfather'.He rejected the trophy as a protest against the atrocities meted out to american indians. Later she turned out to be a fake. Lots of hits for this one.
3.What sort of a study is monology?
#study of Stupidity. No hits, I put it in becoz it seemed interesting to me. Most people got the dictionary meaning of Monology and went on that track.
4.Humphrey bogart is ever famous for his lisp, how did he get it? There are two stories behind this of which one is more authentic. That is the one which is required.
#he joined the U.S. Navy during World War I, serving as a ship's gunner. While roughhousing on the vessel's wooden stairway, he tripped and fell, a splinter becoming lodged in his upper lip; the result was a scar as well as partial paralysis of the lip, resulting in the tight-set mouth and lisp that became among his most distinctive on-screen qualities. (For years his injuries were attributed to wounds suffered in battle, although the splinter story is now more commonly accepted.). This one is a bit vague becoz I recieived lots of answers which seemed convincing. But I have marked people who have mentioned the U.S.Navy and World War 1, there was no brilliance in battle. If anybody can supply proof for the cigarette story which came about as a common story, pls mail it to me.
