History Fact

Diplomatic Breakdown

The Soviet Union and the United States were originally in talks to go to the moon together during the Cold War. Nikita Khrushchev was poised to accept the plan proposed by President John F. Kennedy, but pulled out after Kennedy was assassinated. The Soviets did not trust the new President, Lyndon Johnson, so Khrushchev rejected the plan.

Movie/TV Trivia

One cast member of The Exorcist later turned out to be a serial killer

As if The Exorcist wasn’t creepy enough, you might be interested to know that there was a convicted serial killer working on the set of the film. Paul Bateson actually plays an X-Ray technician in the scene where Regan is undergoing a carotid angiography procedure.

He was working as a technician at the New York University Medical Center when the Exorcist producers rolled up to shoot the scene and asked Bateson to appear in front of the camera.

Six years after the movie was released, Bateson was convicted of killing film critic Addison Verrell. We’ll spare you the gruesome details, but he then confessed to killing a number of other gay men in the 1970s after he was caught boasting to fellow prisoners about the location of the bodies.

Bateson left a grisly legacy which has only added to the conspiracy theory that The Exorcist was cursed from the very beginning.
