History Fact

The guillotine was invented to create “equality in execution”.

The guillotine is an image that is fairly synonymous with France and the French Revolution.

Until it’s advent and widespread use, the regular methods of execution in France were rather savage.

Punishment like being drawn and quartered were common.

The idea to use the guillotine as the main method of execution was part of the movement for equality in France that spurred on the revolution.

This created an equality in death and execution for citizens from all backgrounds.

Movie/TV Trivia

The Just My Luck film poster is actually a paparazzi shot of Lindsay Lohan

Remember the film poster for Just My Luck? Probably not, but we bet you didn’t know that the shot of Lindsay Lohan holding up her sunglasses and winking was actually taken from a candid paparazzi photo of the actress? That’s right – Lindsay was stepping out and about in New York when she decided to play up for some photographers hounding her in the street.

Producers loved the image so much that they stuck it straight on the movie poster for Just My Luck.

In fact, the tagline was also changed to match the photograph and now reads “Everything can change in the wink of an eye.” Unfortunately, Lohan’s wild ways on the set of the movie sparked the beginning of her downward spiral – co-star Chris Pine later described the experience as a ‘cyclone of insanity’. Not good! Pine stated: “It was fascinating to watch, and in hindsight it’s really a distinct moment in someone’s life.

“You see what’s really wonderful about what we get to do and what’s really dangerous about it.”
