TENET---poster released for the Christopher Nolan spy movie.
Also, a controversy arose when Anne Hathaway said Christopher Nolan does not allow chairs on the film set, "Chris also doesn’t allow chairs. I worked with him twice. He doesn’t allow chairs, and his reasoning is, if you have chairs, people will sit, and if they’re sitting, they’re not working. I mean, he has these incredible movies in terms of scope and ambition and technical prowess and emotion. It always arrives at the end under schedule and under budget. I think he’s onto something with the chair thing.”
Nolan's spokesperson clarified the chair controversy, "For the record, the only things banned from [Christopher Nolan’s] sets are cell phones (not always successfully) and smoking (very successfully). The chairs Anne was referring to are the directors chairs clustered around the video monitor, allocated on the basis of hierarchy not physical need. Chris chooses not to use his but has never banned chairs from the set. Cast and crew can sit wherever and whenever they need and frequently do.”

TRIVIA---during World War II, legendary actor Clark Gable enlisted in the US Army Air Force where he headed a motion picture unit. He flew five combat missions as an observer/gunner on a B-17 Flying Fortress bomber on raids over Nazi-occupied Europe. On one mission over Germany, enemy flak went through his boot and barely missed his head. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross.
One of Gable's many fans was Nazi leader Adolf Hitler who ordered Luftwaffe head Hermann Goring to pay a bounty of $5,000 (over $74,000 in 2020 dollars) to any German fighter pilot who shot Gable's bomber down so he could be captured alive. Gable told his friend, actor David Niven, that if he were captured, he feared Hitler would "put him in a cage and charge 10 marks a look all over Germany". According to the LONDON SUNDAY TIMES, Gable's grandson had a letter written by Hitler offering the reward.
