1937 The first radio drama by Orson Welles is aired.
Marlon Wayans is one of 10 Wayans children. In one of his movies, his character jokes that "she has more children than Ms. Wayans".
Slash's real name is Saul Hudson.
Daniel Radcliffe asks his fans to not send him gifts, but donate money to charity.
Orson Welles is one of my favorite actors of all time. His movie Citzen Kane was a bust at the box office, but one of the top movies of all time.
