 Did you know that EmmyLou Harris got her start with a drama scholarship at University of North Carolina in Greensboro, NC? But, it wasn't long before she switched gears and began studying music instead. She even learned to play the songs of some of the most iconic contemporary singers, like Joan Baez and Bob Dylan.

After a move to New York City and a few years of waiting tables, Emmylou finally released her first album, Gliding Bird, in 1969. Her talents quickly caught the attention of the music industry and fans alike. And although her marriage to Tom Slocum didn't last, she persevered and continued to follow her passion for music, even moving with her newborn daughter to live with her parents in Clarksville, Maryland.

Holy plot twist, Batman! In 1966, Adam West burst onto the big screen as the caped crusader in the highly anticipated Batman movie. But did you know that this actually wasn't the first Batman film? Nope, not even close. In 1943, Columbia Pictures released a serial called The Batman, which, when it was re-released in 1965, helped reignite interest in the superhero's story.

So how did West land the coveted role of Batman? Apparently, the producer saw him in a Nestlé Quik commercial where he played a spy, and knew he was the perfect fit for the part. But after playing Batman on both the small and big screens, West found himself a victim of typecasting, making it tough to find other roles. But let's be honest, he will forever be remembered as the one and only Batman.
