These ‘Breakfast Club’ Actors Dated In Real Life

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We’re heading back to the ’80s and checking out The Breakfast Club – not just a classic film in movie history but also filled with some of the most interesting and unique people. The cast members of the film became extremely close during the making of it, so it’s not shocking that maybe some of the cast members would get, uh, extra close behind the scenes.

Anthony Michael Hall and Molly Ringwald specifically got closer than usual, eventually forming a romantic relationship. According to the book about John Hughes films called You Couldn’t Ignore Me If You Tried, there were pretty big age gaps between all the actors. Hall and Ringwald were actual teens, while the rest of them were in their 20s.

“Although the entire group was growing close, Anthony Michael Hall and Molly Ringwald spent the most time together of any cast members,” the book says. “Not only because they had already worked together, but because they were the only actual teens in the cast. They were required to spend many hours together with their on-set tutor.”

The filming process continued, and Ringwald even told Hall’s mom that she was “falling in love” with her son. “Soon enough, Ringwald and Hall were involved romantically,” the book adds. “The feelings Hall had for her on the set of Sixteen Candles were being reciprocated. Hall’s mother, Mercedes (who played his mother in the film, dropping him off at detention in the morning,) remembers being on the Breakfast set “and Molly coming up to me and saying, ‘I think I’m falling in love with your son.’ I said, ‘That’s so sweet- why don’t you tell him?’ The next day, they were walking around holding hands.”

Ringwald adds that the two of them got together while filming because “we were the only people that we knew- practically in the world- that were the same age, that was doing the same thing.” So sweet!

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Sophia Loren has been in the business for decades. She has worked with some incredible stars, including ones that made her extremely nervous! She worked with big names Charlie Chalpin and John Wayne, for instance.

Sophia admitted that she was very nervous to work with Charlie. They starred in The Countess from Hong Kong together, which ended up being Charlie’s last film. He died a year after it came out at the age of 88.

Sophia shared, “I was so nervous working with him. He’s such a master. But on the first day on the set, I realized he was just as nervous. If you care and love something, you get nervous. I’m suspicious of people who don’t ever get nervous.”

Two other big names she loved working with? Gregory Peck and John Wayne. “Gregory Peck was so wonderful and people don’t know how very funny he was,” she said. “It was hard to keep a straight face when working together.” She also worked with John in Legend of the Lost. “My English was not great, the crew would sometimes make fun of me, but John Wayne always would stick up for me,” she said.

You Are Probably Saying Clint Eastwood’s Most Famous Line Wrong

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Everyone loves delivering movie quotes. Clint Eastwood’s most famous line is definitely the one from Dirty Harry. The 1971 film stars Clint as “Dirty” Harry Callaham who is a police inspector assigned to track down psychos.

You’re already thinking of the line, aren’t you? Most people say it as, “Do you feel lucky, punk?” However, that is not completely right! The line actually goes, “You’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?” Well, do you, punk?’”

Many movies including ‘Dirty Harry’ are often misquoted

This isn’t the only movie that is often misquoted. Some of the most popular movies of all time fall into this category including Titanic, Casablanca, and Star Wars. Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is a classic example.

Most people believe the line is, “Luke, I am your father.” If you listen closely, Darth Vader actually says “No, I am your father.” In Casablanca, most people think it is, “Play it again, Sam.” It is actually “Play it, Sam. Play ‘As Time Goes By.’”

Can you think of any other examples? In conclusion, watch Clint Eastwood’s line in Dirty Harry below:

‘The Twilight Zone’ Predicted The Death Of One Actor On The Series

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

The Twilight Zone was a creepy show that was packed full of guest stars. Some stars appeared more than others, seemingly loving their time on the series. This proved to be a bit scary seeing as the show actually predicted the death of one regular actor on the show.

Jay Overholts appeared in eight episodes of the original series. His characters ranged from a reporter to a cowboy and in some episodes, it was only his voice that was heard. In one episode, Jay played a taxi driver that is killed in a car accident. Sadly, Jay died in real life in a car accident when he was only 42 years old.

The accident happened in 1966 and the report said the accident occurred “in Los Angeles, when [Overholts was] hit head-on by another driver in 1966. The other driver was charged with vehicular homicide.” Before his death, Jay also appeared in an episode of Gunsmoke.

Singer-Songwriter Peter Yarrow Accused Of Raping Underage Girl In 1969

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Peter Yarrow has been accused of raping an underage girl in 1969. He is best known for performing with the folk group Peter, Paul and Mary. There is now a lawsuit with a woman named Deborah Martin. Peter is being accused of “sexual abuse of a child, negligence, assault, battery, negligent infliction of emotional distress, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.”

Deborah’s lawyer released a statement. She said, “Mr. Yarrow and his company, Peter Paul and Mary, bear obvious responsibility for his egregious behaviors towards this teenager in 1969. It’s reprehensible that he tricked her and then raped her in a hotel room. The Child Victims Act gives long-suffering adults an avenue to finally seek justice.”

The incident reportedly happened in a hotel room and Deborah was under the age of 18. Her lawyer continues, “As a direct result of the Yarrow’s conduct, Martin suffered and will continue to suffer great pain of mind and body, conscious pain and suffering, psychological suffering, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, severe and permanent emotional distress, physical manifestations of emotional distress.”

This isn’t the first time Peter has been in trouble with the law. He was convicted for taking “indecent liberties” with a 14-year-old girl in 1970. He was pardoned by former President Jimmy Carter.

Peter is best known for the group’s greatest hit “Puff the Magic Dragon.”
