Film eighty-two: The Shawshank Redemption

  1. The director decided not to have the deleted scenes on the DVD release of the film, because he is embarrassed by them, and doesn’t want them to be seen publicly.
  2. The last word spoken in the film is “hope”, a major theme of the film.

SOLVED!


Film eighty-three:

  1. Originally, the actors in the flashback scenes wore pants with zippers. One of the musicians pointed out that the zipper had not been invented at that time, so some scenes had to be re-shot with button-fly trousers.
  2. The film takes place in 1901, 1917, 1920, 1923, 1941, 1958, 1959 and 1960.
  3. Lee Strasberg became ill during shooting, but instead of delaying production, Roth’s character was re-written to be an ailing old man.

Film eighty-four:

  1. After months of research, all of the seven major characters in the film wound up being based on historical military members.
  2. Filming had to be stopped several times due to a shortage of horses for the final battle sequences.
  3. Toho Studios originally cut 50 minutes off the film when screening it for American distributors for fear that no American audience would be willing to sit through the entire picture.

Film eighty-five: Beetlejuice

  1. The studio originally wanted to call the film “House Ghosts.” As a joke, the director suggested the name “Scared Sheetless” and was horrified when the studio actually considered using it.
  2. The lead actor ad-libbed 90% of his lines.

SOLVED!


Film eighty-six:

  1. The special effects were generated with a Commodore Amiga computer.
  2. The title character’s first directive, “Serve the public trust”, was inspired by a fortune cookie.

Film eighty-seven:

  1. The scene in the foggy forest is a nod to the Star Wars franchise.
  2. The letter “c” is used for speed (0.6c, 0.7c); c is defined as the maximum speed, which is the speed of light, as in Einstein’s famous e=mc².
