While speaking with The Daily Mail , the sisters explained that the hardest part about filming The Shining was being still while they were covered in blood:
Us lying in the blood was one of the last scenes shot for the movie and I remember being worried, not because of the blood, but because it was going to be cold. Stanley was such a perfectionist and had planned exactly how he was going to pour the blood over us, so our main concern was just staying really, really still. We only had one set of blue dresses, so we had to get it right the first time otherwise the blood would ruin the dresses. I remember that was very challenging for Stanley because he liked to do many takes.
There are a ton of fun performances in Back to the Future, but one of the most beloved cameos comes from Huey Lewis of Huey Lewis and the News. On top of appearing in the movie, his band also has a song in it.
According to Lewis, he almost didn’t take the gig because of the film’s title even after meeting with Stephen Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis. However, he finally relented. He told USA Today :
I told Bob [Zemeckis] that the next thing I wrote, I’d send to him. So we wrote Power of Love. I had not read the script or seen the film. And they used it perfectly. I didn’t even think it was going to work, so to their credit, it did.
Madolyn Smith Osborne as Pam in Urban Cowboy, 1980. ?? ??
Tight jeans, mechanical bulls, and country music; everyone remembers where they were when Urban Cowboy was released and changed the landscape of pop culture for good. Whether you saw it in a theater and went out to buy a cowboy hat or just had a closeted obsession with country music, this movie affected us all.
The film pretty much brought the western wear scene front and center, it turned plaid shirts into a way of life, and showed that John Travolta wasn’ just some flash in the pan. Read more “Michael J. Fox and Huey Lewis on the set of Back To the Future, 1985. ??”
