Bonus Question #5 (4:00): Some of you have heard rumors that there's a four-part triple-media bonus question that's going to be asked. The rumors are all right. In "On the Waterfront," Lee J. Cobb plays labor racketeer Johnny Friendly. Who played his four strongarm men? Now as a hint, we're telling you that all four of them were famous for something other than their movie acting. Three of them were members of the same "club." The fourth was very famous for something else. Give us the four names, and the club.To get even more specific and avoid accusations of vagueness (since there were a lot of ugly guys running around in that movie), two of the guys were the ones standing with Lee J. Cobb on the roof when the man is pushed during the first scene. One of those two, and the third person, are the two guys who hold off the longshoremen while Marlon Brando is getting beaten up. And the fourth one is the man who offers to take Eva Marie Saint home when she's at the dance with Brando.
Answer: Three of them were professional boxers who'd all been members of Joe Louis' "Bum of the Month Club": "Two Ton" Tony Galento, Abe Simon, and Tommy Moriello. The fourth was Fred Gwynne (of "Car 54" and "The Munsters").

Xanadu welcomed a "Mystery Professor," who read questions and handled general on-air duties for a half hour or so. Teams who could identify this phantom received 3 bonus points. It turned out to be Jonathan Aaron of the English Department.
Gladden was the only team announced as having gotten the three points, but other teams may have done so.
A 3-point bonus was offered to any team that could come down in person to the radio station with a three-year letterman sweater or jacket. No scores were announced.
Regularly throughout the contest, Xanadu would contact the teams by phone, and attempt to solve the five questions. Teams received two points every time they stumped the combined on-air forces of Xanadu. However, the hosts retained the power to dump a question outright if they felt it was complete minutia. The maximum amount of points a team could score in Challenge Trivia was 10.
