About This Quiz

Celebrity is tied to time as much as any human cultural element. Those who are celebrities today may not be celebrities in a decade, a year, a month, or even a day. Celebrity only exists because the conditions in the world are right at the time, so the celebrities of yesteryear could never make it today, just as the stars of today probably won't be able to make it in 30 years.

Every generation has its definitive celebrities. In the 1990s, it was boy bands, late night hosts, a few singers, and the cast of Baywatch. In the 1980s, stars from the 1970s like David Bowie changed and helped define the aesthetic of their time, while Astronauts became celebrities, and martyrs. In the 1970s, having a poster was a sure sign you were a celebrity, and in the 1960s, getting on Ed Sullivan was the sure fire way to fame and riches. No two celebrities represent the same thing, and no two stars "made it" the same way. 

Let's go back in time together, to 1924, the interwar years. You have a day all to yourself, do to with as you wish. How will you spend 24 hours in 1924? And what does that mean for your '20s celebrity?
