Reminds me of a time when I was at a friend's place, and a group of us were watching some movie, I forget what, but it was from the '60s or '70s and it was directed by Orson Welles.

When the director credit came up at the end, my friend's roommate said, very seriously, "No.  Orson Welles died in 1957."  Nothing we could say could dissuade him from this opinion, not even when I pulled up IMDb on a laptop (this was early 2000s) and pointed out that Welles had, in fact, died in 1985.

One of my favourite trivia questions is along the lines of "Orson Welles' final role before his death was in a film which also starred Leonard Nimoy and Eric Idle, and which he expressed deep regrets for agreeing to. What was that film?"

Did you answer the question correctly, or did you dare to be stupid?

Actually I wrote the question myself. There's more than meets the eye to me, you know.

Isn't that a pretty well-known bit of trivia though?

I didn't realize Nimoy and Idle were part of it.

I have asked it amongst groups of quite nerdy people of varying ages, and they haven't known it. In fact, I'm not entirely sure how *I* know it, since I have no recollection of watching the movie.

"The last film roles before Welles's death included voice work in the animated films Enchanted Journey (1984) and The Transformers: The Movie (1986), in which he played the planet-eating robot Unicron. His last film appearance was in Henry Jaglom's 1987 independent film Someone to Love, released after his death but produced before his voice-over in Transformers: The Movie. "

The Transformers: The Movie (1986), in which he played the planet-eating robot Unicron.

You know, I first read that as "planet-eating robot unicorn" and, like, fuck yes I want to see that.

I predict many negative reviews of the digital version on account that they're "using the wrong rule of having Curses count a Supply pile"  ;D
