After the Beatles called it quits in 1970, Paul McCartney retreated to his farm in Scotland with his young family. At the time, he and his wife Linda had only been married for less than a year and here he was depressed and drinking while brooding about the lack of possibilities in his life following the breakup of his band.

Linda was raising their young child, Mary, while helping Paul get his confidence back as he slowly started working on new music. He ended up recording what became "McCartney" in secrecy on a Studer four-track tape recorder at his house in St. John's Wood.

The biggest song on the album is "Maybe I'm Amazed," an ode to Linda, the woman who helped him get back on his feet.

After fresh faced Jamie Lee Curtis took the role of Laurie Strode in Halloween she had no idea why people would want to watch such a stressful movie. After all, why would audiences want to freak themselves out?

Curtis says that she didn't really get it until she saw the movie with an audience full of people who were completely invested in Laurie's survival. She told the New York Times:

I remember going to see it in Hollywood, and in the middle of the movie, when Laurie is walking across the street to the house where P.J. Soles’s character has just been strangled, this woman stood up and screamed, 'Don’t go in there!' In that second, I understood exactly what John intended. The audience cared about Laurie.

This just shows the power of seeing a movie like Halloween with a large group of people, it absolutely beats watching a movie alone at home.
