Lots of interesting tidbits in those pages. Paranormal Activity Steven Spielberg had to stop watching the film halfway through on a home screener as he was genuinely spooked by the experience. He completed it in daylight hours the next day and loved it. Jaws "You're gonna need a bigger boat" was not scripted but ad-libbed by Roy Scheider. The shooting star that appears during the night scene where Brody loads his revolver was real, not an optical effect. Rocky Rocky is not the character's actual name. His real name is Robert Balboa - this was seen in a rough script from the second film. While You Were Sleeping Harrison Ford and Geena Davis were initially offered this film. Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring John Rhys-Davies, who plays Gimli the dwarf, is the tallest of the actors who play members of the Fellowship. He is 6' 1". Pretty Woman Edward (Richard Gere) snapping the necklace case down on Vivian's (Julia Roberts) fingers, was improvised by Gere, and Roberts's reaction (laughter) was totally natural. The filmmakers liked it so much, they decided to leave it in. Titanic The hands seen sketching Rose are not Leonardo DiCaprio's, but director James Cameron's. Alien Ridley Scott stated that in casting the role of Ripley, it ultimately came down to Sigourney Weaver and Meryl Streep. The slime used on the Alien was K-Y jelly. Exorcist The refrigerated bedroom set was cooled with four air conditioners and temperatures would plunge below 30 degrees. Godfather Marlon Brando did not memorize most of his lines and read from cue cards during most of the film. Whenever oranges appear in the film, they foreshadow death or a near death. American Werewolf in London It was filmed in sequence, with the opening scenes filmed first and the closing sequences filmed last. The Blues Brothers The Bluesmobile was actually going 118 miles per hour under the elevated train line. Stunt pedestrians were added after the first pass to add realism. Silence of the Lambs The first moth cocoon found in one of the victim's throats was made from a combination of Tootsie Rolls and gummy bears, so it would be edible if swallowed. Field of Dreams The shot of the line-drive knocking over the bag of baseballs next to Kevin Costner was sheer luck off the bat of Ray Liotta. "The Final Shot" was a big community event, enlisting 1,500 volunteers to drive for the last scene. The Thing John Carpenter and Kurt Russell both admit that after all of these years they still do not know who has been replaced by the creature and when. Exteriors were shot in Stewart, British Columbia. The temperature ranged between 0 F and -15 F during the shoot. Terminator Near the beginning of the movie the voice on Sarah Connor's answering machine is James Cameron's. O.J. Simpson was considered for the Terminator, but the producers feared he was "too nice" to be taken seriously as a cold-blooded killer. Predator The original concept for this film originated as a joke. Someone said that the only person Rocky Balboa of the Rocky series of films had yet to fight was E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. Lethal Weapon The first movie to feature a cellphone. Die Hard The Nakatomi tower is actually the headquarters of 20th Century Fox. Clint Eastwood originally owned the rights to the novel "Nothing Lasts Forever" on which the film is based, and planned to star in the film around the early 1980s. Raiders of the Lost Ark Harrison Ford actually outran the boulder in the opening sequence. Because the scene was shot twice from five different angles, he had to outrun it ten times. Ford's stumble in the scene was deemed to look authentic and was left in. Jeff Bridges turned down the role of Indiana Jones. The Well of Souls sequence was filmed on the set of the Overlook Hotel from The Shining Ghost The horrific sounds made by the "dark shadows" are really the sounds of baby's cries, played at extremely slow speed backwards. Smokey and the Bandit Was a Guilty Pleasure of Alfred Hitchcock The second highest grossing movie released in 1977 next to Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope Breakfast Club John Hughes wrote the screenplay to this movie in just two days (4 and 5 July 1982). Shawshank Redemption The film's initial gross of $18 million didn't even cover the cost of its production. It did another $10 million in the wake of its Oscar nominations but the film was still deemed to be a box office flop. The water Tim Robbins crawled though to freedom was a mix of sawdust, chocolate syrup and water.
