History Fact

Mistaken Identity

In 1945, the British Royal Air Force accidentally sunk a ship full of holocaust victims. The ship, the SS Cap Arcona was being used as a prison ship to transport prisoners of Nazi concentration camps (Incidentally, the SS Cap Arcona was the very ship used to play the Titanic in the 1943 German film). Approximately 5,000 people died in the shipwreck—three times more than in the wreck of the actual Titanic.


Movie/TV Trivia

The Shawshank Redemption

When Andy goes to the library to begin work as Brooks' assistant and Brooks' crow, Jake, is squawking, Tim Robbins had to time his line, "Hey, Jake. Where's Brooks?" so that the crow wouldn't squawk over him, since the bird could not be trained to squawk on cue. Robbins was able to adapt to this and time his line perfectly by learning the bird's squawking patterns, for which Writer and Director Frank Darabont praised him. Robbins' improvisation is noticeable, as he watches the bird carefully while approaching it, waiting for it to squawk, and doesn't begin his line until after it does so.
