MGM first wanted Shirley Temple for the lead in "THE WIZARD OF OZ" but Twentieth-Century Fox wouldn't loan her out.
Also, they first considered W.C. Fields for the wizard.

They're going about it all wrong, If it's one of the older can vending machines and your arm is fairly skinny, Just reach up into the door where the can falls through and grab the bottom of the next can and pull down and VOILA! free soda!

Four people have played Dr. Hannibal Lector:

Brian Cox originated the role in Manhunter.

Sir Anthony Hopkins played him in The Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal, and Red Dragon.

In Hannibal Rising, Aaran Thomas played an 8 year old Hannibal and Gaspard Ulliel played him as a teenager.

the sitcom "McHALES NAVY" was originally a drama called "SEVEN AGAINST THE SEA".

Ian Fleming, who created James Bond, gave him the number 007 because those were the last 3 digits of his phone number.

Dig this crazy family tree


Theodore Roosevelt is the uncle of Elenour Roosevelt, and a fifth cousin of Franklin Roosevelt. Franklin and Elenour are also distant cousins.

The producers, Mervyn LeRoy and Arthur Freed always wanted Judy Garland for the role of Dorothy - in fact, Arthur Freed obtained the rights to the book and originally began crafting the film with Judy in mind. However, the studio insisted that they test Shirley Temple for the role, since she was the #1 star at the time and had expressed interest in the part. She did test, but her singing was nowhere near as good as Judy's, and Fox thought they could compete by putting Shirley in "The Blue Bird" the same year.
