You got 12 out of 14
You sure know your cultural history! We're guessing you're old enough to have lived through all this. Or maybe you're just super smart about history!

#7: I remember that Jim Rockford on The Rockford Files (1975) once mentioned you could mail a letter for a dime. Ethel Mertz remarked that a stamp was three cents in a Connecticut episode (1957).

12/14, Iron Eyes Cody and Diet Pepsi did me in.
Is anyone, aside from me, aware of the fact, that the "actor" that portrayed Iron Eyes Cody, did not have one drop of Native American blood in him? He was 100% Italian!

14/14! 10 in a row and yes I'm an old guy! On Question 2, the first widely available VCR was actually the Sony Betamax in 1975, the ones you mention were prototypes, one of which was used by LBJ to record the network news!!

In 1975 my English teacher in high school had one and brought it in to show us (for some odd reason) 'Fiddler on the Roof' that he had taped.

Yep, I remember watching "Brian's Song" that way. At least I only had to watch for an hour and a half, your movie was twice as long!
