A pro stunt driver, a racing analyst and a comic serve as hosts for this se- ries, which often features the trio stag- ing absurd races between vastly differ- ent types of cars. 2. On this elimination-competition se- ries, the race is between 11 teams of two people, while the course takes them around the world. 3. This 1965 slapstick comedy film fol- lows an around-the-world automobile race at the turn of the 20th century, its stakes raised by the rivalry between daredevils The Great Leslie and Profes- sor Fate. 4. Inspired by an outlaw coast-to-coast car race in the 1970s, this 1981 comedy film of the same name boasts an all-star cast headed by Burt Reynolds. 5. A remake of the 1975 cult classic star- ring David Carradine, this 2008 action thriller (and its 2010 prequel and 2012 sequel) focuses on a deadly demolition derby between prison inmates that airs as a hit TV series in its dystopian society. ANSWERS 1. "Top Gear" 2. "The Amazing Race" 3. "The Great Race" 4. "Cannonball Run" 5. "Death Race" TRIVIA CHAIN - On Feb. 26, 1564, poet and playwright Christopher Marlowe is baptized in Can- terbury, England, two months before the birth of his fellow playwright Wil- liam Shakespeare. Historians believe Marlowe served as a spy for Queen Eliz- abeth while at Cambridge. - On Feb. 25, 1862, the U.S. Congress passes the Legal Tender Act, authoriz- ing the use of paper notes to pay the government's bills. This ended the long- standing policy of using only gold or silver in transactions, and it allowed the government to finance the enormously costly Civil War. - On Feb. 27, 1915, "The Valley of Fear" by Arthur Conan Doyle is published. Sherlock Holmes had been a popular character since he first appeared in the story "A Study in Scarlet" in 1887. The detective was modeled partly on Dr. Jo- seph Bell, a medical-school teacher at the University of Edinburgh. - On March 2, 1944, a train stops in a tunnel near Salerno, Italy, and more than 500 people on board suffocate and die. The train's locomotives were burn- ing low-grade coal substitutes that pro- duced an excess of odorless and toxic carbon monoxide. Approximately 520 passengers were asphyxiated.
