The book The Detective was made into a movie starring Frank Sinatra.  
The book had a sequel called Nothing Lasts Forever.    That book was later adapted into a movie you may have heard of (especially around Christmas)  Die Hard.  
Due to contracts when the movie Die hard was being made, they legally had to offer the role to Sinatra first, even though he was ... pretty old at the time.  

the next THREE Die Hard movies weren't written as sequels to Die Hard at all.  

A book called 58 Minutes became Die hard 2.
A screenplay written as Simon Says was eventually made as Die Hard witha Vengeance (although the script was almost bought and made as Lethal Weapon 4 first).
Another screen play called WW3.com was chosen to be made into Live Free or Die Hard.  

A Good Day to Die Hard was the very first Die Hard movie to actually be written as a Die Hard movie.

Up until the 1980s a popular thing to do in Germany was putting a crochet "hat" over a roll of toiletpaper, proudly put on display in the rear of the car

Red dyes were so expensive in Viking-age Scandinavia that those seen wearing red clothes were assumed to be nobles.

South Dakota will let you keep a bear on your property, but domestic pigs are prohibited.

Wha?  Question Buggedout

It's a misprint on findlaw. It should read "non-domestic [i.e. wild] pigs." (Look at the grid below the article). Good catch on your part.

Between 1986 & 2006 Tokyo Disneyland had a walk through attraction based, in part, on the Black Cauldron. https://disney.fandom.com/wiki/Cinderella_Castle_Mystery_Tour

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
