I have been tagged by Mimi @ Mimi Writes....... who was tagged by Travis..

Here are the instructions for Trav's Staying Out Of The Dungeon Trivia Meme:
He said: A meme needs 'structions.OK...here's your 'structions:
Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to:
1. Choose a category from one of these: Television, Stage & Screen, Nightly News, Publishing, Lives & Times, Music
2. Find 8 bits of trivia about your selected category
3. Be sure to let me know when...ok, if...you decide to play along so I can see what you come up with.
4. You may tag, or simply offer the meme for borrowing or stealing as you like.

Here is my list of trivial facts (subject - Screen)

1. Sophie's Choice
Meryll Streep was the perfect choice for Sophie. Her performance as Sophie Zawistowska was ranked #3 on Premiere Magazine's 100 Greatest Performances of All Time!
2. Jane Eyre
Based on Charlotte Bronte's gothic romance, Jane Eyre is a film by Orson Welles who played the part of Rochester....
strangely enough I named my Daughter Charlotte....and her middle name is Jane...a friend who is a poet pointed out at the time that Charlotte Bronte had written Jane Eyre...
3. Ben-Hur was one of the most honored, award-winning films of all time. It was nominated for twelve Academy Awards, Best Picture, Best Actor (Charlton Heston - his sole career Oscar), Best Supporting Actor (Hugh Griffith), Best Director (William Wyler), Best Color Cinematography, Best Color Art Direction/Set Decoration, Best Sound, Best Score, Best Film Editing, Best Color Costume Design, Best Special Effects, and Best Screenplay (sole-credited Karl Tunberg). It was the first film to win eleven Oscars
4. In 1999 Jack Nicholson was presented the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes Award show. His reaction? To moon the crowd. Classic.
5. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest was the only film to win the Golden Globe in all major categories (Best Motion Picture, Actor, Actress, Director, Screenplay)?
6. In preparation for his role as Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver, Robert DeNiro lost 35 pounds, drove a cab and read books on Green Berets.
7. Ronald Reagan and Ann Sheridan were originally cast for the lead roles in Casablanca.
8. Pablo Picasso appears in a crowd scene in Jean Cocteau's The Testament of Orpheus [1962].
