Movie Trivia

The movies are full of make believe, but some movie magic can be even more extraordinary – and in some cases downright bizarre – than most people are even aware. The famous sketch of a nude Kate Winslet in Titanic was actually drawn not by her co-star, Leonardo DiCaprio but by director James Cameron. Nor was the actress actually nude; instead Winslet was wearing a bathing suit at the time.

The shocking scene in Pulp Fiction in which John Travolta appears to slam a needle into the chest of an overdosing Uma Thurman was actually shot in reverse, meaning that Travolta was actually pulling a pre-rigged needle out of her in the scene.

Action icon Sean Connery began to lose his hair young (at the age of just 17 years old), meaning he was wearing a toupee even in the very first James Bond movie, 1962’s Dr. No.

The sound of the raptors communicating with one another in the original Jurassic Park is actually the noise made by mating tortoises, with goose hisses and horse breathing also being used in some of their scenes.
