In James Cameron's film Titanic, before Rose meets Jack Dawson (played by Leonardo DiCaprio), who will become her boyfriend, she is engaged to Cal Hockley (played by Billy Zane). However, these characters are fictional and were not on board the Titanic. They were created for the purposes of the film only.
Did Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey dislike each other during filming of Dirty Dancing?
They did at first, since they had worked together on the movie called "Red Dawn (1984)" and they didn't get along while filming that. So when they met for "Dirty Dancing" old resentment came to the surfaces for both. However, instead of staying that way and because both wanted to be in that movie, it was important to them both, they went into a trailer on the set, to talk about everything (or fight it out), burying the hatchet so to speak. Apparently tears had been involved because they came out with red eyes. It was after that, as Patrick has said, "sparks" flew as they danced. It was the first time outside of the connection with his wife, as he has also said, that he felt an overwhelming connection with another woman.

What happens to Penny in Dirty Dancing?
Penny got pregnant by that boy Baby's sister was chasing around. Robbie Gould is the character's name. Anyway, the doctor she hired to do the abortion was a quack. He didn't know what he was doing (I think one of Penny's friends called him a "butcher") and his instruments were dirty. She got some kind of infection or sepsis and she might've died, if Baby's father hadn't been there.
What is scarlett o'hara's birthday?
April 23, 1841 Nope this can't be. Because she was only 16 when the war Started in 1861, so that would have to have her being born in the year 1845. Also April 23 has got to be wrong, as well, because The barbeque at the Wilks' Plantation took place the day before Ft Sumter was fired upon, and that was on April 12, 1861...So that would have made Scarlett just shy of 16, but Ms Mitchell says she was already 16. Note: The Barbeque at the Wilkes' Plantation did not take place the day before Ft. Sumter was fired on. In the meeting the men have, they specifically mention the firing on Ft. Sumter and Charles Hamilton mentions to Scarlett that Lincoln has called to arms the Union which occurred on April 15, 1861, three days after the firing on Ft. Sumter. Also, the news of Lincoln's call to arms would have taken days if not weeks to reach Georgia let alone the Wilkes plantation. Georgia succeeded on January 19, 1861.

Plot summaries a walk to remember?
From website: "After a hazing incident goes wrong, popular but rebellious Landon Carter is threatened with expulsion. His punishment is participation in various after-school activities, including the spring musical, where he meets quiet, bookish Jamie Sullivan the only daughter of their church's pastor, Landon has difficulty learning his lines, so asks Jamie to assist him. She decides to help him but under one condition: Landon must promise not to fall in love with her. Landon and Jamie begin practicing together at her house after school. As they spend more time together, a friendship begins to develop. Landon discovers Jamie's wishlist of everything she aspires to accomplish in life, which includes befriending someone she doesn't like, getting a tattoo, being in two different places at once, and making a telescope. However, she doesn't tell him her number one wish. One day, Jamie approaches Landon when he is hanging out with some of his friends. When Jamie asks if they are still on for practice that afternoon, he smirks and replies, "In your dreams". His friends laugh, and Landon's smirk falters as Jamie feels betrayed and embarrassed. That afternoon, Landon arrives at Jamie's house in the hope that she will still agree to help him, but she refuses to let him in. Landon eventually learns the script by himself. In the following days, Landon tries to get close to Jamie, but she repeatedly rejects him. The breaking point comes when a few of Landon's so-called friends play a malicious joke on Jamie (The prank consisted of a photoedit of Jamie's face onto an almost pornographic image and its distribution). She is about to cry in the middle of the cafeteria when Landon comes to her aid, punching one of his now ex-friends and apologizing to Jamie while comforting her (which she accepts), calling them "animals". In his car at her house, he asks her out to dinner, but she replies that she is not allowed to date. He goes to her father in the church and asks him for permission. He begrudgingly agrees, and Landon takes her out to dinner. From that night forward, the two begin to fall in love, as Landon helps her accomplish things on her wish list. For example, he takes her to the state line, where she is "in two places at once," and gives her a temporary tattoo of a butterfly. He later has a star named after her, and learns that her number one wish is to marry in the church where her parents were married. As their relationship grows, Jamie finally reveals to Landon that she has leukemia and has stopped responding to treatments. He is initially upset, but she says that the reason why she didn't tell him was because she was moving on with her life and using the time she had left. Jamie starts to break down as she says, "I do not need a reason to be angry with God" and runs away. Eric who was Landon's best friend, but had also participated in the prank on Jamie, comes by and tells him how sorry he is and that he hadn't understood. Landon leaves dozens of flowers on Jamie's doorstep and asks her father to tell her that he's "not going anywhere". The pair makes up soon after. Jamie's cancer gets worse until she collapses one day. Her father rushes her to the hospital where he meets Landon. The next day, Landon comes to the hospital and sees Jamie being wheeled out of the ward. He asks what's going on and she replies by asking him to thank his father for the help. Apparently Landon's father arranged to pay for private home care for Jamie. Landon continues to fulfill various wishes on Jamie's list, including building her telescope. Her father, who now approves of him, helps out. After Jamie sees the comet through the telescope, Landon proposes and Jamie accepts. They marry in the church where her parents were married. With the wedding, Landon has completed everything on Jamie's wishlist. She then dies months after their wedding. Four years later, Landon visits Jamie's father and tells him he has finished college and has been accepted into medical school. He then gives Jamie's father a book that Jamie had given to him. He tells her father that he is sorry he could not grant Jamie's ambition to witness a miracle before she died. Her father replies that Jamie did see a miracle. "It was you," he says with a fatherly smile. In the end, Landon remarks that Jamie not only saved his life - she taught him everything about life, hope, faith and the long journey ahead. He ends his monologue by saying that Jamie and his love is like the wind. "I can't see it, but I can feel it." The film ends with Landon standing on a dock, staring into the sunset and smiling, as "Cry" (by Mandy Moore) plays into a fade."
