Cary Grant was born on the 18th of January, 1904 in Bristol, England. The English Born-American actor was the second child of a tailor and a seamstress (which explains why his clothes were always so good!). Be that as it may, his mother was suffering from clinical depression and his father was an alcoholic. His mother was placed in a mental institution and his father had told him, after some time, that his mother had died. Cary Grant grew up not really being very close to his parents until his father not only remarried and started a new family but he also found out when his father was dying, that his mother was still alive.

Dashiell Hammett died on the 10th of January, 1961 - but by then he had amassed a great amount of noir literature written with characters we love like Sam Spade, Nick and Nora etc. He was a great writer and ever since his birth on the 27th of May, 1894 in Maryland, USA - he has been a continuous name mentioned when we talk about the great film noir. After he basically created hard-boiled crime fiction, many thought it would be great to adapt his works into films.
On the 8th of January, 1935, Elvis Presley was born in Tupelo, Mississippi. He wasn't rich, not even close to rich - probably not even close to average earning. Be that as it may, he was found - they made the records and he became known simply as "The King". Unfortunately, in 1977 - Elvis Presley succumbed to his overworking schedule and accidentally died from taking some horrid pills. But, from when he was making the records to this day and beyond - there are still people who listen to Elvis Presley, old and young.

Dolph Lundgren is famous for playing a wide variety of roles since his acting career began in the mid-1980s. While sometimes ridiculed for the sheer number of direct-to-DVD movies he's starred in, his career saw a major resurgence with the films The Expendables and its sequel The Expendables 2. The character Lundgren plays in these films, Gunnar Jensen, really takes center stage in the sequel where he displays his vast knowledge of physics, his hand-to-hand combat prowess, advanced understanding of chemistry, and even talks about his time as a bodyguard for a beautiful, famous actress. Fortunately for Lundgren, he was just playing himself at that point.
