What futuristic novel opens with the line “It was a pleasure to burn”?
Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury
(Amazingly, I actual knew the answer to this trivia question! Sometimes, I truly surprise myself with the things I know!
SCANDAL ON THE SET
After four years playing the squeaky-clean Mary Camden on 7th Heaven, the wholesome WB drama about a minister and his family, Jessica Biel wanted to be more like other teen stars and take on sexier parts. Biel tried to get out of her contract, but executive producer Aaron Spelling wouldn’t allow it. So she posed semi-nude in Gear magazine. Spelling was furious, and he removed Biel from the show. She’s gone on to appear in such hit movies as I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry and The A-Team.
(Good for Jessica Biel taking a chance on herself - you can't move ahead if you don't take risks!)
Not where you’d think: Dallas took place in Braddock, Texas.
