November 15, 2007 question

Alexander IV (aka, the Not So Great) came after Alexander the Great (aka, the 3rd), and only Reg knew that. It’s gotta be a hard act to follow when the guy before you was known as “the Great.” Like after Gretzky retired. Or . . . escaping after Steve McQueen. Or all the post-’30s Depressions. How do you improve on greatness?

I don’t know. I’m still working on improving on mediocrity. But here’s today’s Great Escape question:

What was the nickname of Charles Bronson’s character, Flight Lt. Danny Velinski, in The Great Escape?
