75 Years ago today was the great stock market crash of 1929.
Also Winona Ryder turns 33 years old today. Wow. Looking at her bio, I had no idea some of the stuff about her.
1. Her real hair color is blonde but when she made her first major film Lucas (1986) her hair color was dyed black and she was told to keep it that color and it has stayed that color since.
2. She smokes a pack of cigarettes a day!
3. She was born Winona Horowitz and named after her the town in which she was born, Winona Minnesota.
And a personal quote from Winona on the screenplay for Heathers (1989):
“It’s a brilliant piece of literature, and I call it literature because it really is. I held it up next to ‘Catcher in the Rye’ and all the great books that I’ve read.”
Happy Birthday Winona! I loved you in Great Balls of Fire.
