~  Only three Westerns have won the Oscar for Best Picture:  Cimarron (1931), Dances With Wolves (1990), and Unforgiven (1992).

~  The rear view mirror was introduced 100 years ago at the very first Indianapolis 500 race.  It was on the winning car, a single seat Marmon Wasp driven by Ray Harroun.  All the other cars in the race had a mechanic in the passenger seat serving as the rear view mirror.

~  "Little Women" was originally going to be titled "The Pathetic Family."

~  In 1985 Rick Springfield wrote an autobiographical song about being mistaken for Bruce Springsteen, called "Bruce."

~  In elevation, Sante Fe, New Mexico is the highest U.S. capital at 7000 feet.  (I have been there - it is a beautiful city)
