Catch 22

Did you know it was originally named “Catch-11.”? Author Joseph Heller tried out Catch-11, but because the original Ocean’s Eleven movie was newly in theaters, it was scrapped to avoid confusion. He also wanted Catch-18, but a recent publication made him switch titles to avoid confusion, Leon Uris’ 'Mila 18'. The number 22 was finally chosen because it was 11 doubled.
