Apparently there's a picture in existence called Krippendorf's Tribe (it's name was changed from the original title due to actor Stephen Dorff not recognisable as that hot of a property at the time of the film's release)

Unfortunately, no. Not the best of days for Richard Dreyfuss.

Keira Knightly was in The Phantom Menace.

Indiana Jones and the Temple Of Doom was released in 1984, but was in fact a prequel to Raiders Of The Lost Ark, set approximately a year earlier.

A man by the name of George Lucas was one of the cameramen for the concert video 'Gimmie Shelter.'

Being as this was shot in California at the same time that THE George Lucas would have been in college, I've always wondered if it was him, or just some other guy...

Despite all she's done, the best way to get people to recognize Sela Ward is to say "Harrison Ford's wife from The Fugitive."

Of course, since she's only in it for 10 mins, and people still remember her, that says something.

Known this for a while, but a lot of people don't.

David Hayter is the voice of Solid Snake in the English releases of Metal Gear Solid. He is also the voice that says "EA Sports. It's in the game" at the beginning of each game from them.

Movie connection? He wrote both X-Men movies too.

Bob Balaban (of A Mighty Wind, Ghost World, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, etc.) is the nerdy kid in glasses who picks up Jon Voight outside a movie theater in Midnight Cowboy. Voight shaking him down for loose change in the men's room is one of the film's many shining moments. "No, no...not my books!"

He didn't write the final script for X2. And, he got the X-Men 1 script credit by default.
