😡 Hank Azaria played "Hank Landsberg" in 2018's Maniac.

🚀 The band Duran Duran got their name from the evil scientist in Barbarella - they used to play in a club called Barbarella's, and later featured the actor who played Durand in a music video.

🐿 The movie of the Beastmaster is weird, but it isn't anywhere near as wild as the original Andre Norton book.

🦆 The Ducktales Theme Song Scorebreak. The Ducktales Theme Song: when someone says Ducktales, you have to say "woo-hoo." I don't make the rules.

👧🏻 Bernadette Peters would make a fantastic Miss Hannigan, but she actually played Lily in the 1982 John Huston version.

📺 Don't tell Dave, but The Thin Man TV series ran for two seasons on NBC in the 50s, starring Peter Lawford.

🎹 Weirdly, not everyone hates the Casablanca TV show

🪠 The Lighthouse Score Break. The Lighthouse: it's in black and white mostly to ensure that you don't notice that Robert Pattinson is doing Mario cosplay.

🤰 The first Big Bad Mama movie co-starred Tom Skerrit and William Shatner.
