True or False Trivia: Kramer vs. Kramer


One of the fascinating pieces of trivia below is true*, the other is false. Do YOU know which is which?

Kramer Vs. Kramer (1979)

1) When Justin Henry was Oscar nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award, Henry at age 8 became the youngest ever person to be nominated for this award as well as the youngest ever Oscar nominee in any category, a record which still stands today.


2) In the original ending, in order to retain custody of his son and circumvent the decision of the court, Ted challenges Joanna to a bareknuckle brawl, winner take the child. Joanna refuses, insisting that it be knives or nothing. Ted eagerly agrees, and the two have a bloody switchblade melee throughout the streets of Manhattan, ending in the subway when Ted punches Joanna into a nest of giant rats, who carry her away screaming into the darkness as Ted laughs maniacally. As the credits roll, Joanna’s blood-curdling screams and the sound of rats gnawing can be heard for exactly 142 seconds, and then only the sounds of rats tearing her flesh asunder as blood streaks down the screen.

  1. And this concludes the terrifyingly true story of how Meryll Streep’s body was possessed by the Rat King of New York, who incidentally has a flair for theatrics and has brought much thespian honour to the Streep name the past 35 years.

  2. 3. The doofus neighbor came convulsing through the front door without knocking, said “Giddyup,” they all laughed, and then he pulled off his wild wig to reveal that he was actually Meryl Streep, at which time the academy went ahead and sent her an Oscar pre-emptively.
