More Information

hoh_theater_screenJulie & Julia
The suitcase in the beginning of the movie is Paul Child's own personal case.

Black Narcissus
For the original American release, all the scenes of Deborah Kerr in Ireland with her boyfriend were deleted. US censors didn't think American audiences would accept a nun with a past. Of course the scenes are crucial to understanding the character and the effects of the mountains on the women.
That’s Entertainment
The "Good Morning" number from Singin’ in the Rain (1952) was originally inserted in Debbie Reynold’s hosting segment, but eventually cut before release and later placed in That's Entertainment Part II'. The segment with Reynolds' narration can be seen in the promotional short Just One More Time.
The solar eclipse that takes place during the crucifixion scene was the real thing, an event for which director Fleischer delayed shooting in order to capture the ethereal nature of the phenomenon.
Gone With The Wind
1,400 actresses were interviewed for the part of Scarlett O'Hara. 400 were asked to do readings.
Victor Victoria
To prepare for her role in this film, Julie Andrews took boxing lessons for her punch-out scene.
