5.  She played the role in Touch of Evil with a broken arm.  She hid it under a coat in many scenes.  When she first told Orson Welles, he reportedly said: "Oh, that's no problem.

9. During the filming of The Manchurian Candidate, she was served divorce papers by Tony Curtis (the symbolic end of a real-life relationship).  Later the same day, she filmed the famous scene where her character meets Frank Sinatra's on a train--the symbolic beginning of a fictional onscreen relationship. The scene is noticeable for its elliptical and absurdist dialogue (full of mysterious non sequiturs), but also for the striking vulnerability and openness between two characters who barely know each other.
