Trivia: The "Canada Carries On" film series started in 1940 as propaganda to boost the national and United Kingdom's efforts in World War II. The film series continued after the war and ended in 1960.

JOE LOUIS (1914-1981) was the longest-reigning world heavyweight boxing champion in history. He defended the title twenty-five times from 1937-1949. One of the boxers he defeated was former world heavyweight champ PRIMO CARNERA, who played the giant Antaeus in 408-HERCULES UNCHAINED. Usually playing himself, Joe Louis appeared in a few movies including The Fight Never Ends and Joe Palooka, Champ.

Canadian BARBARA ANN SCOTT won the gold medal for women's figure skating in the 1948 Olympics.

The comedy team of OLE OLSEN and Harold Ogden "CHIC" JOHNSON, better known as simply Olsen and Johnson, made several films together, including Hellzapoppin and Gold Dust Gertie.
