Fun Facts V 2.0

Thought it might be fun to resurrect this thread.....Version 2.0.

I'll start.

With the recent sad news I learned something new.

The safety system that guides the Monorails is called MaPo.

It is short for Mary Poppins. Walt took the profits from that movie to build the original Monorail at Disneyland.

It takes 7 pounds of pressure at any point to fracture that skull - it takes 25 to break a window. Just a little scary and makes one rethink that geeky bicycle helmet!

Your foot is the same length as your forearm (elbow to wrist). There are more things like this, but I have only had one cup of coffee.

Costing one million dollars per minute of film--Captain EO is the most expensive film ever made when looking at the cost per minute average.

I don't believe this is true if you're looking at a pure dollar perspective. Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End cost $300 million, it was 168 minutes in length, averaging $1,785,714 per minute of entertainment. There are other films too that exceed the $1 million dollar mark per minute including Titanic, Waterworld, and Disney's own Tarzan which cost $150 million and was 88 minutes in length ($1,704,545/minute).

If you are adjusting for inflation, films like Cleopatra, Superman, etc still handsomely exceed the $1,000,000 mark.

Captain EO is still one of the most expensive films ever made, but it definately is not the most expensive.

Sorry for this misinformation then. This was a "fact" I read on IMDB when we looked up Captain Eo last week I thought IMDB was pretty reliable--I guess not.

If you google most expensive film per minute Captain EO comes up.

The 17-minute Captain EO premiered at EPCOT's Journey Into Imagination pavilion in Orlando on September 12, 1986. To enhance the audience's experience of the 3-D film, lasers, star fields and smoke effects were installed in the four theaters (at the Florida, California, Japan and France parks), bringing the total cost of the production to an estimated $30 million and making it the most expensive (per minute) film ever made.

British slang, describes something that is stupid, lame or unpalatable.

But I got that off the IMDB, so who knows if its 100% correct!
