A Smullyan Puzzle from Jim Henson’s Labyrinth
While trying to navigate her way through the Labyrinth, Sarah finds two doors protected by two different guards. The guards inform Sarah that one door leads to the castle at the center of the labyrinth while the other leads to… dah-dah-doom… certain death! The guards explain that she can only ask one guard one yes-or-no question. Furthermore, one of the guards always tells the truth and the other always lies. What should she ask the guard in order to know which door to choose?

[UPDATE] Congrats to Andy V, who quickly dispatched of the riddle. If you were lost in a labryrinth haunted by David Bowie, you’d want Andy to be your guide! I am awaiting a theme from him.
Here is the clip from the movie.
