She did some flying, and some climbing, and at one point, recreated a famous scene from the movie.
No, not the charcoal drawing one.
The one where she's at the bow of the boat, telling Jack that she's flying.
She does the same thing in this clip, only this time, she's leaning over a rope or a cable on the side of a mountain...

He's playing Whitey Bulger, one of the most notorious gangsters of our time, a kingpin in the Boston crime scene before becoming a fugitive for years.

Dr. Seuss, the man behind "The Cat in the Hat," "Green Eggs & Ham" and so many other childhood classics, passed away almost 25 years ago.
So when you hear there's a "new" Dr. Seuss book, you sort of scratch your head, right?
Story is, the Doc wrote it in the late 1950s and tossed it into a box. Someone just found the book in the box, and the book in the box is now on the charts...
