Quiz Question

One of a continuing series

This is number 100.

Here is a cultural literacy test. Roy Rogers made it big, starting in the 1930s as a singing cowboy, patterned after Gene Autry, the original singing cowboy. He had a famous horse named Trigger and a pretty wife, Dale Evans, who often appeared with him in his movies. But Roy Rogers, for all it’s Hollywood alliteration, was not his real name. What was his real name? Hint: it’s not a name guaranteed to throb hearts.

Post your answer as a comment below.

Update and answer

Only one person took a stab at this week’s Quiz Question. Helen had it almost correct. Roy Rogers’ real name was Leonard Franklin Slye, not something you wanted to put on a billboard.

Hardly a westerner, he was born in Cincinnati, Ohio.
