PopQuizzical Daily! for August 12, 2013
How much was the first U.S. minimum wage?
Red Dawn in 1984.
Red Dawn, in 1984, was the first movie released with the PG-13 rating from the Motion Picture Association of America. There were several movies like Gremlins, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Poltergeist that slid through with a PG rating which outraged some parent groups. This put the MPAA in a real bind, so they created a PG-13 category in which parents were “strongly cautioned” that there kids under the age of 13 might suddenly be cooler to all of their friends if they see this movie. As you can tell, I turned out ok seeing these movies. You can tell, right?
