    Ta da. Well done xs11e. But, I don’t think Gina should get the credit.

    Not a tie yet; doesn’t Francis have one more question?

    @David Warnick

    No, no: They were initially tied, then Francis failed to answer the Sri Lanka time question correctly and now Gina failed on this question so they are tied again.

    Don’t worry, he won’t be gone for long!

    Francis is 2nd

    But, being #2, perhaps he tries harder?

    That’s not the correct answer, although the early films did make it a popular phrase.

    Cliffhanger came about BEFORE films from when newspapers published novels, one chapter at a time (back in the 19th century.)

    Webster’s Ninth Collegiate traces ‘cliffhanger’ only to 1937. Webster’s New World says it’s an Americanism and that it originated with movie serials. The 2-vol. Compact OED doesn’t list it at all. I don’t think 19th c. serialized novels have anything to do with it.
