Some films are good, some are better, while some generate the Oscar buzz once they get released. But there are certain things, certain events about those movies that we have no idea about. Some happen behind closed doors, while some are generally kept under wraps. Some facts are deliberately leaked out by the producers in the hope that it would lead to a bigger audience. The point being, we don’t know what happens behind the set.
Let’s see some facts about 14 legendary films that you might not know:
1. The Same Newspaper
For over 4 decades, a single newspaper was used as the prop for a number of films and TV shows, some going as far back as ‘Married…with Children’, first aired in the year 1987, and some as recent as the famous 2007 movie, ‘No Country For Old Men’.
The famous marriage scene in ‘Godfather’, involved real gangsters and the Mafia. Most of them actually wanted to be a part of the movie. It also highlights the intricacies of the American Mafioso.
3. 16 Minutes
‘The Silence of the Lambs’, for which Anthony Hopkins won an Oscar, features him for just 16 minutes. Also, he does blink, unlike popular stories.
The match that was featured on ‘The Devil’s Advocate’ was actually real. It was for World Champion, and Ray Jones Jr. won it after defeating Bryant Bannon in the second round.
The name Tackleberry got famous after ‘Police Academy’ was released. A “Tackleberry” is someone who is trigger happy and thinks first with their guns.
6. Blue Shirt
The entire movie has scenes where we see Forrest first as a kid, then as an adult, and finally his son. Surprisingly, all these scenes feature someone wearing a Blue Check Shirt.
Joey actually owes Chandler $119760 over the course of ‘FRIENDS’.
The carpet present in Andy’s room in ‘Toy Story’ is the same as the one in ‘The Shining’. The scene where Jack Nicholson takes the axe to murder his wife and child shows the same carpet.
The skull in the poster of ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ actually is three naked ladies. The skull is present on the back of the butterfly.
10. The Poster
The poster for ‘Scream’ is derived from Edvard Munch’s famous painting ‘The Scream’. The resemblance is uncanny.
In ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest’ most of the scenes in the mental asylum involved real patients.
In ‘Terminator’, the scene where T1000 takes on the disguise of Sarah Connor, is actually played by Linda Hamilton’s twin sister Leslie. Linda Hamilton plays the real Sarah Connor. They used mirrors for some more scenes involving them both.
13. Pulp Fiction
No one really knows what was inside the suitcase. Although, if we shift the camera, we would have found a glowing bulb.
Most of the paintings, including the famous painting of Rose, was sketched by James Cameron himself. Also, while Titanic is quite a famous tragedy, there are certain aspects of the film we don’t know. Especially, the true story of Jack. The original Jack was in First Class, therefore rich, and had a secret affair with someone else.
