Question of the Day

May 11, 2017

Yesterday we asked: What film was J. Edgar Hoover’s assistant D.M. Ladd referring to when he wrote in a memo that “the film represented rather obvious attempts to discredit bankers... a common trick used by Communists”?

Answer: That well-known Communist propaganda film, “It’s a Wonderful Life”

Congrats to...none other than Craig Pittman, first to tweet in the correct answer.

Your question of the day for today is…What was the name of the first cat sent into space?
