Bela Lugosi was a soldier in WWI
He served as an infantryman in the Austro-Hungarian Army from 1914–16, rising to the rank of captain in the ski patrol. He was awarded the Wound Medal for wounds he suffered while serving on the Russian front.
He was shot 3 times!

The theme to jaws was inspired by the music from the star trek episode "the doomsday machine". TDM used a deep, ominous 4 note repeated tone. Jaws used a 4 deep tone note with slightly different timing and spacing. Many people do believe the laws theme was inspired by the doomsday machine music, even if the writer can't say so for fear of a lawsuit.

Olivia de Havilland secretly supported Errol Flynn during the last years of his life. Flynn believed he was living off a studio pension fund into which he'd previously paid.

The publicity for Cry of the Banshee announced that it was Vincent Price's 100th movie. 

It was actually his 76th movie. 

His next movie The Abominable Dr. Phibes was also announced as being his 100th movie.

While 2001 a space Odyssey was in theaters and A. C.  Clarke was touring Hollywood, a fan shook his hand,  slipped an envelope into it and told him he really understood the stargate sequence.  The envelope contained a astic bag with a brownish substance in it and a note assuring clarke it was 'high quality stuff'.

Flynn was partying till he puked. He was f**king an underage girl in Cuba.

The movie zardoz impressed someone at. DC comics enough to create a super character based on the movie called. 'Vartox', a cross between zardoz and vortex.  The character was based on Sean Connery's appearance in the movie.    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vartox

His next movie The Abominable Dr. Phibes was also announced as being his 100th movie. 

Price and his 100th movie brings up a great bit from the time on Hollywood Squares, when both he and Paul Lynde were on the same show.

Host (Peter Marshall): How many films has Vincent Price made?
Lynde: Well, he made 2 or 3 last week.
Price: That was more than you made all year.
Lynde: Well, some of us are choosy.
Me: ROTFL!

Whether it was true or not, the answer was suppose to be 100, which Lynde gave as his answer, with the contestant disagreeing and thus be declared wrong.

Amazingly enough Vincent price  could be on a game show and be more entertaining and classy than most modern stars are in their movies.

Movie critic and host Joe Bob Briggs was in CASINO (1999). He played an employee of DeNiro's who kept f**king up. He calls him a 'mo-mo!'  BounceGiggle
