CONVENTION 2000 / THE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION

Convention Quiz

August 15, 2000

Q. Los Angeles has been selected as the site for how many Democratic National Conventions?

A. Three. Sorry, it's a trick question. Besides the two real conventions now and in 1960, a reenactment of the 1924 convention was shot in the Shrine Auditorium for the movie "Sunrise at Campobello," starring Ralph Bellamy as Franklin D. Roosevelt. The filming took place in 1960 just before the real convention convened.
