But what if you've never heard the pronunciation and know French loves it's superfluous ending letters?
Almost as much as we love our superfluous apostrophe's.
All language's need their quirk's

36 right.

Fantasy & Paranormal Lit (4), Urban Planning (1), Movie Role, TV Role (5), 3 "E"S (2), Mali (4), Or Bust (4)

Lach Trash: Thomas Becket, respite, Ray Liotta, Alexander Hamilton

My very first thought was the Marquis de Sade; I knew the invention, but wasn't exactly sure how the doctor's name was spelled, but I managed to get it without the "e".

Lavoisier (with near-zero confidence). Post-game research shows me that he died by guillotine, so at least there is a connection.
More like a disconnection.

"Night of broken glass" joins the "NHOI in the top box" pile. That whole category was entirely alien to me. (ETA: "Night of Broken Glass" has only one Archive hit, and "Kristallnacht" only two, both in the bottom box.
There's only one other time where they spotted the contestants "night of broken this" and just wanted "glass". It was second box down in that case. Someone got it right, as I would expect.

This clue was polled at your request. Came in at 83%. There's your answer. Solid top box material, but second box wouldn't be inappropriate. Any lower down would be silly.

So how did 83% of people know something that's only come up once before?

It's as if we learn stuff outside of a game show.

I've been to several Holocaust museums. It was an extremely pivotal night.

I found a stupid way to get this one wrong: I said Guillot.
You're not alone. I immediately wrote down "Guillotine," then decided "ine" might be a suffix. Geez Louise.
Sprinkles are for winners.
