One thing that defines scripts and films in general is the tittle. Some titles are so iconic that once you mention them you pretty much have a full on breakdown of the story.
One funny thing about titles is that they don’t always start out the way they end up. A classic example of title changes was Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
Originally the title was Sundance Kid and Butch Cassidy. The title was switched when Paul Newman took over the lead role. The film wouldn’t have been any less successful, or less classic had the title not changed, just really odd to pronounce.
Do you ever wonder about your favorite celebrities? Do you wonder what their life is like and if they have anything to hide? Celebrities are human and like everyone else, they have their little secrets. Below are 5 celebrity secrets you did not know and may not believe.
- Seuss- It’s true, it’s true the man that invented the who, loved to fool around at times with more than two. Dr. Seuss was into extra marital affairs in case you didn’t get the Seuss style rhyme.
- Mark Wahlberg- The superstar once beat a Vietnamese gentleman unconscious while yelling racial slurs at him. Wahlberg was 16 at the time and not on good vibrations.
- Johnny Cash- Cash was a beloved superstar whose personality was larger than country music. Cash became a star of film and television, solidifying the man in black persona. Cash apparently escaped a car fire that killed 49 California condors; wonder if that’s what led him to writing Folsom Prison Blues.
- Thomas Edison- The inventor took place in the first animal death ever filmed. Edison did it out of spite for his rival Nikola Tesla.
- Eric Clapton- The great guitarist apparently hates immigrants in Britain and has rallied against them by joining politicians whose agendas include blocking immigrants.
A lot of these secrets are often denied or not acknowledged as often, incredible how heinous they seem in actual nature.
When the Wizard of OZ went into production, over 124 actors ere hired to play the munchkins. A little known story is that one of the actors experienced a little known toilet near catastrophe.
An undersized actor fell into a toilet, that’s right he fell in. The actor was trapped in said toilet until someone from the studio found him and helped him out.
While this is a more humorous and lighter story about the Munchkins, there is no doubt that the tale speaks to a lot of unfortunate happenings that plagued the filming of this tremendous classic.
Do you ever wonder about the term movies?
The fact of the matter is that the term itself did not really refer to films. “Movies” was a term used to refer to people in the industry. In other words movies were filmmakers.
The fact is that “movies” was a term used with disdain. If you were a movie you were largely and generally considered trash of the worst kind of name to call someone.
In those days filmmakers were looked upon as invaders rather than welcome individuals. Incredible to think that the term we use now was actually politically incorrect.
