John Carpenter Trivia

John Carpenter likes to use the names of real people from his past (eg. school friends & ex-girlfriends) as the names of characters in his films. One such example is Ben Tramer from Halloween (with whom he went to school). Another is Jamie Lee's character, Elizabeth, in The Fog, who was an old girlfriend of Carpenter's.
