Saturday Night Fever picture

Trivia: When Tony Manero's father slaps him on the back of the head during an argument at the dinner table, Tony replies, "Would you just watch the hair? You know, I work on my hair a long time and you hit it! He hits my hair!" John Travolta ad-libbed this line. Director John Badham thought it was so perfect for the character of Tony Manero that he decided to leave it in the film.

The Full Monty picture

Trivia: As the finale was filming, the actors performed the entire strip routine in front of the crowd - the only time that they went 'the full monty'. To counter understandable nerves, all the actors had enough to drink beforehand to make them at least slightly drunk. Some got a bit carried away and were very inebriated, for example, when Gaz kisses Nathe, it was not scripted (look at Nathe's face), but was carried out because Carlyle was drunk.

The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall picture

Trivia: The encore with Sarah Brightman featured four Phantoms from around the world: Colm Wilkinson, who was in the original Canadian production (and was also the original Jean Valjean in Les Misérables in both London and New York); John Owen-Jones, who, with over 4,000 performances, is the West End's longest-running Phantom; Anthony Warlow, the most famous Phantom in Australia; and Peter Jöback, a singer from Denmark, who made his debut as the Phantom and later took up the role on tour. And while he didn't participate, Michael Crawford, the original Phantom on both the West End and Broadway, was in attendance.

Coyote Ugly picture

Phantom of the Opera picture

Trivia: When Claudin thinks his concerto has been stolen, he goes into a frenzy and attacks the music publisher. The publisher's assistant, Georgette, stops the attack by splashing a tray full of powerful etching acid into Claudin's face. Oddly, Claudin does not recoil when she throws the acid; rather, he leans forward, as if to ensure that it the liquid strikes him full in the face. Which is precisely what happened. To avoid having to shoot the messy scene more than once, we see actor Claude Rains deliberately leaning into the splash for a thorough dousing.
