John Wooden

Reading Fact

History Fact

The Titanic's Owners Never Said the Ship Was "Unsinkable"


Despite what James Cameron's iconic 1997 film may have you believe, the owners never said that it could never sink. Historian Richard Howells said that "the population as a whole were unlikely to have thought of the Titanic as a unique, unsinkable ship before its maiden voyage."

Movie/TV Trivia

James Woods fired his agent upon learning – after the movie was shot – that Quentin Tarantino wanted him for a part in Reservoir Dogs.

Movie/TV Quote

"I'm gonna steal the Declaration of Independence."

National Treasure (2004)

Benjamin Franklin Gates has the greatest respect for our historical institutions, which is why it's so difficult for him to imagine ever committing a crime in one of them. After a long, inspiring speech about having the responsibility to take action when you know you need to do something right, Nicolas Cage pronounces one of the most famous lines in film history. It's a great scene, charting a character's decision to do something he knows is wrong for the pursuit of what is right… and it's also a hilariously melodramatic line in a very fun, exciting movie based on a bizarre idea. Since the movie opened, this line has been memed over and over again, so relentlessly that it reappeared again in National Treasure 2: "I'm going to kidnap the President of the United States." Sometimes, you gotta do what has to be done. Sometimes, you gotta steal the Declaration of Independence.
