They trundled their belongings into the city. They settled. They took hold. They prospered in business, science, education, the arts. With nothing they came and with nothing they flourished. For six centuries there has been a Jewish Krakow. By this evening those six centuries will be a rumor. They never happened. Today is history.” – ‘Schindler’s list’

But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you.

No Great Depression. Our great war is a spiritual war… Our great depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars, but we won’t. We’re slowly learning that fact. And we’re very, very pissed off.” – ‘Fight Club’

Hollywood Facts that could be used for Instagram captions

In the movie ‘The Great Dictator’ Charlie Chaplin used his own money to make a monvie mocking Hitler because Hollywood was afraid of losing money if they took a stand.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, had a loss of 167 million dollars ‘on paper’ because of “Hollywood Accounting.” Warner Brothers made sure that the movie lost money by paying itself a 212$ million “distribution fee” off the top.

‘In Old California’ was the first movie to be made in Hollywood in 1910. It was a very short film (17 minutes) directed by legendary D.W. Griffith, who was also responsible for another film named ‘Birth Of A Nation.’

The idea of creating Hollywood Walk of Fame first came in 1953. The idea belonged to the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce’s volunteer president E.M. Stuart.

To acquire your own star on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood you have to pay approximately $30,000.

The world-famous ‘HOLLYWOOD’ sign came in 1923, when a real estate agent whose name was Harry Chandler decided to advertise properties in the local territory. And raising the ‘HOLLYWOODLAND’ sign costs him $21.000 which was meant to stay there for eighteen months. In 1949, the sign was edited from ‘HOLLYWOODLAND’ to ‘HOLLYWOOD.’ In spite of being the legend of Hollywood, the sign itself has several tragic stories associated with it, including that of broadway star Peg Entwistle, who committed suicide by jumping off the letter ‘H’. After that accident, in 1995 the Hollywood Sign Trust was set up to look after this legendary landmark.

The Academy Awards were first held in 1929 at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. This cozy and neat banquet was attended by only 270 people and 15 awards were presented on that night.

The only star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame which is not on the sidewalk belongs to Muhammad Ali. It is on the wall of the Kodak Theatre. This beautiful move was done to honor his request that he ‘did not want to be walked on.

Some cities came up with their nicknames being inspired by Hollywood. For instance, India’s Hindi language version of Hollywood is Bollywood. Canada’s film industry is called Hollywood North. And even China’s largest film studio’s name is Chinawood.
