    The Internet Movie Database (www.imdb.com) turned 15 yesterday (October 17th)

    http://www.imdb.com/features/15thanniversary/history

    A great site, if you want to look up facts about movie actors, films, including trivia and goofs ...

    Some examples....

    1. Tom Cruise originally wanted to be a Jesuit Priest

    2. Jerry Orbach a.k.a. "Lenny Briscoe" was once Mae West's chauffeur

    3. Mel Blanc, who is famous as the man who did the voice of Bugs Bunny, auditioned for the voice of C-3PO in the movie "Star Wars". Orson Welles was the Lucas' original choice for the voice of Darth Vader.
