The event known as The Miracle on Ice occurred on February 22, 1980 in Lake Placid, New York. The United States Hockey Team defeated the Soviet Union Hockey Team by a score of 4 to 3, widely considered to be the biggest upset in sports history. This win did not secure the gold medal for the team, however, it was earned after defeating the team from Finland.

The Disney film, Miracle, starring Kurt Russell as Coach Brooks, portrayed this historic event to a new generation of sports fans.

His first real hit was the horror classic Halloween, which gave birth to the slasher genre and showed a then unknown Jamie Lee Curtis fighting for her life against a masked maniac.

Not a fan of Valentine's Day? If the traditional romance films aren't your cup of tea this time of year, consider the line written by Shakespeare from A Midsummer Night's Dream, "The course of true love never did run smooth."
