Since the weather for the last two weeks has been iffy, I’ve been forced to binge watch a boatload of movies. Some were good, some were bad, and some were just awful. As much as I enjoy the current crop of movies with all of their special effects, I still enjoy going back 40 or 50 years and watching some of the classics. I hope the weather changes soon because truthfully, I’m getting really tired of watching movies. With that thought in mind I decided to offer up some good old movie trivia facts. I hope you find a few things that surprise you.

  1. Here’s another one…The little boy in the movie, Jaws, that pranked everyone by swimming with a fake dorsal fin is all grown up. He’s the Chief of Police in the same ocean side town where Jaws was filmed!
