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.

Steve McQueen may have been one of the coolest guys of the 20th century and an ace driver, but that doesn't mean he wasn't pulled over by the police on multiple occasions. In 1972, McQueen was arrested for driving under the influence while in Anchorage, Alaska. Apparently he was speeding through the city in a rented Oldsmobile Toronado.

When McQueen was pulled over and asked to walk down the white line during his sobriety test he did a full somersault and was almost immediately arrested. McQueen didn't hold a grudge, in fact he signed autographs for everyone at the station while he was still in handcuffs. After posting bail he got the heck out of town and was convicted for reckless driving in absentia.
