This informative post will be posted on Saturday along with my usual writing.  We can all appreciate some of the lesser known facts from around the world.

The term “paparazzi” comes from Federico Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita.”  In the film, Marcello Mastroianni writes a gossip column, and Walter Santesso plays his coworker, a tabloid photographer whose name is Paparazzo.

Albert Einstein’s facial characteristics inspired the look of three popular film characters:  E.T. had Einstein’s eyes, Yoda had his forehead, and Emmett Brown in “Back to the Future” had his hair.

These facts have been discovered in I NEVER KNEW THAT by David Hoffman (2009).
