History Fact

One Hell of a Haul


The largest art heist in history occurred on March 18th, 1990 at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. A total of 13 paintings worth $500M were stolen by two men posing as police officers. Paintings by masters including Degas, Vermeer, Rembrandt and Manet were among those taken. To this day the empty frames are still hanging, acting as placeholders until the pieces are returned.


Movie/TV Trivia

Gone Girl

Production of the film had to be shut down for four days, due to Ben Affleck's refusal to follow David Fincher's vision, and wear a New York Yankees cap for a scene where Affleck's character, Nick, is at an airport. The Bostonian actor said to Fincher, "David, I love you, I would do anything for you. But I will not wear a Yankees hat." Eventually, the two settled for Ben's character to wear a Mets cap. Fincher jokingly describes Affleck's actions of this as "entirely unprofessional" in the DVD's audio commentary.
