20 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Mission: Impossible

It’s been one of the most successful TV-to-movie adaptations, with lots of attractive people doing wonderfully spiffy spy things and Tom Cruise showing his ability to pull off many different hair cuts.

Obviously you love the Mission: Impossible films, because they are mostly excellent, but how much do you know about the first installment? This feature will not self-destruct because that would be dangerous and potentially leave us open to legal action.
