Death-obsessed Swedish filmmaker
Death-dealing Hollywood antihero
The meeting between Bergman and Bronson was facilitated by the Swedish auteur’s unlikely connection to the coriaceous action star. The two men shared the same agent and publicist. They met once, during Bergman’s first visit to Los Angeles in the late 1970s. Bronson was filming one of his trademark shoot ‘em ups at the time. Bergman visited him at the studio at their agent’s behest. After they exchanged pleasantries, Bergman became entranced by the squibs that were placed on Bronson’s body to simulate blood-spattering gunshot wounds. “Fascinating,” Bergman marveled. “I never knew how they did that!” “You mean you don’t use machine guns in your movies?” Bronson replied.

Secret cinema found beneath Paris
In September 2004, French police discovered a hidden chamber in the catacombs under Paris. It contained a full-sized movie screen, projection equipment, a bar, a pressure cooker for making couscous, a professionally installed electricity system, and at least three phone lines. Movies ranged from 1950s noir classics to recent thrillers.
When the police returned three days later, the phone and power lines had been cut and there was a note on the floor: “Do not try to find us.” (via)
