Producer/screenwriter Eleanor Bergstein may have based much of "Dirty Dancing" on her own teenage vacations at resorts in New York's Catskill mountains, but it's not clear how accurate her memory of those days was. When scouting locations in Virginia, she was asked if they resembled the mountain resorts of her youth. She replied that she didn't remember because "I was always looking at boys."

2. Bergstein had been a dance instructor herself. "I was a teenage mambo queen," she said in 2015, "which was our alternate title if we lost 'Dirty Dancing.'" Apparently, there was some concern that potential moviegoers would see that title and expect the film to be porn.

Years after he played Dr. Houseman, Jerry Orbach recalled that the producers were unwilling to meet his asking price, so he agreed to a reduced salary in return for percentages of the movie's profits and its music sales. Both ended up being worth so much that he called it the best deal he ever negotiated.

6. The movie's $5 million budget was so meager, Bergstein said in 2006, that one day on the set, she had to help feed the crew. "There I was, feeding the extras peanut butter and crackers because we couldn't afford catering. I'd wade through them and get up on a chair and tell them: 'You are the heart and soul of this movie.'

Personality clashes between Swayze and Grey, which dated back to their failure to get along while making 1984's "Red Dawn," continued on the "Dirty Dancing" set. Filming the rehearsal montage where Johnny runs his hand down Baby's arm, Grey couldn't stop laughing, which irritated Swayze. They were supposed to be playing the scene for serious drama, but eventually, the filmmakers gave up and kept the muffed takes, resulting in one of the movie's most beloved sequences.

8. Jane Brucker, who played Baby's sister Lisa, composed her hilariously awful talent show song (Hawaiian misfire "Hula Hana") herself, and she did it on the spot. "They wanted to do a song from 'South Pacific,' and they couldn't get the rights to it." Brucker tells Moviefone. "They said, 'You have to write something or we have to cut it.' [Choreographer] Kenny Ortega helped me make it Hawaiian."

At the end of the day, however, "I got one set-up. I had two takes to get it right." An accomplished jazz singer, Brucker had to sing off-key on purpose. The number stayed, but it took 20 years for Brucker to get songwriting credit for it. Not until the song was reused in the stage musical did Brucker succeed in her legal battle to earn royalties from "Hula Hana." Which, she says, provide her to this day with "a steady income."

Robert Pattinson is undeniably great in Good Time: EW review

  Robert Pattinson is undeniably great in Good Time: EW review In one of the few quiet moments in Good Time, Robert Pattinson’s character, lowlife Connie Nikas, confesses that he believes he spent a previous life as a dog. At that point in the latest urban nightmare from the familial directing duo Josh and Benny Safdie (Heaven Knows What), the audience can’t be sure he’s telling the truth — he’ll say or do anything to survive—but we’ve started to see the canine in him too. Mangy and fiercely loyal to his mentally challenged brother, Nick (Benny Safdie, again), Connie is our guide through the film’s neon-lit New York City hellscape over the course of 24 truly horrendous hours. With fantasies of a new life in the country, Connie ropes his brother into a poorly planned bank heist. When things inevitably go wrong, it’s Nick who ends up in custody, sending Connie on a desperate odyssey to scrape together the $10,000 he needs to post bail for his brother. What follows plays out like a drug cocktail of Martin Scorsese’s After Hours and a Michael Mann-directed acid trip. As the long bad night barrels forward, Connie bounces between a series of acquaintances (including Jennifer Jason Leigh, a girlfriend to whom he’s promised a beach vacation) and increasingly bleak odds. The wild night eventually turns downright rabid, but ­Pattinson anchors Good Time, completely selling Connie from the moment he bursts into the frame and delivering the best performance of his career.
