 The very first CGI used was in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, where Lucasfilm Graphics Group, then a subsidiary of Industrial Light & Magic (ILM), was responsible for the "Project Genesis" demonstration sequence effect, the very first fully textured 3D CGI representation shown in the motion picture business to a general public. The Graphics Group later evolved into Pixar, in 1986.

King Kong was brought to life via stop motion, but RKO didn't want anyone to know that. Their pro-mo material said Kong was a man in a suit.

Related story from The Princess Bride. One day the cast all went to town for dinner. Andre started ordering vodka shots. Before all was said and done, he passed out on the floor of the restaurant. No one could move him, so all they could do was leave him there to sleep it off.

"Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans" is the only movie to ever win the Academy Award for Best Unique and Artistic Picture.

The award for Best Unique and Artistic Picture was only given out at the first ever Academy Awards.  The next year the awards where held the category was dropped.

Dime with a Halo was the last movie filmed at Hal Roach's old studio lot. Dime was released in 1963; the studio was torn down that same year.

    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.
