    In fact, Agatha Christie was an animal lover, and even worked her much-loved wire-haired terrier, Peter, into the center of an Hercule Poirot mystery, Dumb Witness, as the character “Bob”. But she died in 1976, not 1943.

    Personally, I had guessed Anna Sewell, the author of Black Beauty, because I was under the mistaken impression that she published her one novel early in her life rather than just one year before her death.

    Recycling the questions? I’ve heard several of them before, including the Potter one.

    Alex Maggio granted my wish of hoping that this week would be much better than last week.

    Oh, dear, I have no idea who Helen Twelvetrees is.

    The kids on the panel were just too young. And Trebek is too old. Did he really think they ever even HEARD of Ava Gardner? She’s to them as Helen Twelvetrees is to me, and I wouldn’t know her if she walked in the door right now.

    And I wouldn’t be too sure those kids would know Mia Farrow, either. (To be honest, she’s someone I’ve been trying to forget, myself.)

    Then Trebek thought Agatha Christie was a weak answer due to the “animal lover” angle, seemingly unaware that the real problem is they had her year of death occurring 33 years too soon.
