Crewe:
I know we are all have useless trivial facts locked away for no reason at all, so might as well dump them here.

Ill start with this:
Harold Ramis ended up selecting Kenny Loggins to write the theme song for Caddyshack which was of course, "I'm Alright."
But did you know he originally wanted Pink Floyd to write and perform one or more songs to play over the opening and closing credits?
No? Well, now you do.
Pink Floyd had just released The Wall an declined.
Oh and as an aside, Don Rickles was originally cast as Al Czervik (Dangerfield's character) and I think he would have worked just as well.

TheNorm:
Something I had read a year or two ago and didn't know about: apparently the actors in Alien didn't know about the chest-burster scene, so when it did happen that really was them flipping out.

And in Die Hard (aka the greatest Christmas movie ever), that scene at the end where Hans Gruber falls? They released him a second before they told him it was going to be, so Alan Rickman's look of shock was real as well.

BojackHorsefella:
The scene in Alien: Resurrection when Sigourney Weaver nails the basketball shot behind her back without looking? That actually happened.

Didnt know the first bit, did know the second one. Wasn't it something like they told him "...on three" and dropped him on "two?"
