The Crazy Horse sculpture in The Black Hills of South Dakota is supposed to be larger than that at Mount Rushmore if it is ever finished.

Crazy Horse was featured on a 13 cent stamp. It was issued in 1980 as part of the Contributors to American History definitives set of stamps.

In the 1960s, Terence Stamp shared a flat with actor Michael Caine before and during their rise to fame. In his autobiography, What's it All About, Caine states that he “still wakes up sweating in the night as he sees Terence agreeing to accept my advice to take the role in Alfie”.

Michael Caine's first American accent was in the film Hurry Sundown (1967). He was taught the Southern drawl by Vivien Leigh, who told him to say "four door Ford" all day long for weeks.

Vivien Leigh suffered from bi-polar disorder, according to wiki. She was also quoted as saying
Quote:
"People think that if you look fairly reasonable, you can't possibly act, and as I only care about acting, I think beauty can be a great handicap, if you really want to look like the part you're playing, which isn't necessarily like you

Perhaps Samantha Brick was comparing herself to Vivien Leigh.

Bruce Lee's family never called him Bruce. They preferred to call him by his nickname Sai Fon or Little Phoenix. It was a girl's name, deliberately chosen by his parents because they believed that evil spirits did not like boys in the family (their firstborn was a son who died in infancy). So, by giving Bruce a girl's name, they believed they could fool the demons into sparing his life.

Shel Silverstein wrote Johnny Cash's hit "A Boy Named Sue" and was arguably as prolific a song smith as he was a poet.

Johnny Cash adopted his signature all-black suits as a good luck charm after he wore a black T-shirt and jeans to his first public performance.

Members of the Canadian National Socialist Unity Party wore blue shirts, surprisingly they weren't banned in Canada until May 30th 1940.
