Thursday Quiz: Do You Know Your 1920s?

It’s no accident that “Chicago” is set in the 1920s: That decade (fueled, perhaps, by bathtub gin and the gangland violence with which it did the foxtrot) was an absolute hotbed of crime. Which of the mysteries and dastardly deeds listed below did not occur in the 1920s:

    The kidnapping of Aimee Semple McPherson

    Ruth Snyder’s “Double Indemnity murder”

    The disappearance of Judge Crater

    The murder of Bobby Franks by Leopold and Loeb

    The Cottingley Fairies hoax

    The Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre

    The kidnapping of the Lindbergh Baby

    The Piltdown Man hoax

    The disappearance of Agatha Christie

    The execution of Sacco and Vanzetti

    The disappearance of Lord Lucan

    The disappearance of Amelia Earhart

And…last week’s quiz, now with answers!
