  2. Can't say Marilyn Monroe's death was an overdose without bringing up the Conspiracy Theory of her murder… C'mon, you guys are slipping…Because of this huge flaw you get a thumbs down!!!!

  3. In 1993 , I believe it was Black Belt magazine which reported that Brandon Lee had been shot by a live round during the filming of the Crow, which had not been cleared by the stunt team, and that he was paralyzed because the round had struck him in the spine and he was alive in the hospital for two weeks before undergoing surgery where he died due to complications.

  4. I remember crying when I watched Barry Frost being declared dead.. I just thought he'd moved on from the show or been fired, didn't think Lee was actually dead. ๐Ÿ˜“

  5. The actor that fired the gun at Brandon Lee says that he still has nightmares about it to this day. I can't imagine bearing that kind of weight, even if it wasn't my fault. ๐Ÿ™

  6. I can't believe its already been basically 3 years since Pauls death…..that guy was a legend among men.
