  1. KidChaplin

    Mr. Bean

    The Christmas scene at the store where he plays with the nativity scene had me in tears where I had trouble breathing the first time I saw it. The best part for me was where he backed the truck up to get the sheep.
  2. I've noticed all of the companies involved in movies. Sometimes you can even think the movie is starting and it's a little 15 second credit for a distribution company. Like you see a shot of an island and the camera pans to the water like something will start to happen, something is going to come up out of the water or the camera will dive in and....... And then........the company name fades in and is floating like the water. You then feel like a dweeb 'cause you just got sucked in.
  3. I was recently watching reruns of "Roseanne" and I noticed something during the opening credits. There were six to seven producers for each episode. One episode had Producer (name), Producer (name), Producer (name), Producer (name), Supervising Producers (two names), Produced By (name). Why are their so many of them and what do they all do?? Thanks.
  4. One that always stuck out to me was the back door on The Andy Griffith Show. "Let's see.....the door is on the wall where the sink and cabinets are. Hmm....let's move it a couple of feet to the left on the other wall!" I just dont get WHY? I know it's trivial and not exactly a world crisis problem. But I was just curious who came up with ideas like that. Characters, like Chuck Cunningham, I get. Character is lame, doesn't quite fit like you thought, etc., etc. But why a person, like Clara Johnson / Edwards has a name change without getting married just makes me scratch my head. Floyd being married, then not being married, again, is a character change. Bernard Milton Fife and Bernard Oliver Fife. 🤷‍♂️
  5. This is a trivial subject, but one that has bugged me for years and I was hoping someone, maybe with industry knowledge, could answer it. Why do names and places change for no reason in TV shows? Example, I am a fan of the Andy Griffith Show and notice how the Taylors address changes, Floyd is married with a kid and then he talks about dating other women and no more mention of a kid, Aunt Bee's friend, Clara had the last names of Johnson and Edwards, the backdoor in the Taylor kitchen was on the wall with the sink in the black and white episodes then was on the wall to the left in the color episodes. Why all these changes? I guess I am saying...what's the purpose? I know sometimes you can change a character's backstory, but why something so trivial as moving a door? Thanks!
  6. "You hate me! Everybody hates me!" - said Nancy three times every freakin' episode!
  7. Yeah, ham, I mean you hear the studio audience, you know Andy Griffith really isn't a sheriff, you know Adam West doesn't really change into Batman, but it's all about suspension of reality. I have read articles where members of the public have actually forgotten to leave "pretend" behind and ask celebrities where their partner is, like asking Andy Griffith where Barney is or people being really honestly mad at Alison Arngrim because they look at her and still see Nellie Olsen and how "she" treated Laura Ingalls. Some people forget the magic and pretend and take it way to close to the heart!
  8. I thought this might be an interesting thread. I was wondering if any of you dislike seeing behind the scenes of shows or movies? I am looking at a lot of behind the scenes shots from "The Andy Griffith Show" and you see the studio lights above the interior of the courthouse, the production crew all around a shot being done, etc. Do any of you stay away from this? My father hates to see it. he says it ruins things for him. He likes to suspend truth. I love it. It's never bothered me at all. Thoughts? Opinions?
  9. Dargo, I just found the Phantom of the Backlots thread. I perused it and was gritting my teeth with jealousy 😬 How lucky can you be?!?!? ON THE SET of Hogan's Heroes?! WOW! I have wondered about the normal citizens that live around a studio and hearing all of the explosions, sirens, etc. that might be in a production. I know there were houses all around the 40 Acres lot and I imagine it was quite common place to hear the explosions coming from Stalag 13. Can you imagine an out of town relative...."BOOOOM!" "What was that?!" "Oh, we hear that all the time. That's coming from behind those trees. That's Hogan's Heroes filming." 😂
  10. I know the towns and cities are all just empty structures, but I was just wondering if someone went in and laid waste to it. Something so sacrilege about it. 😢
  11. I know that some of the destruction of the Desilu 40 acres backlot was helped along by time, weather and a couple of terrible B movies, but to finish it off, was machinery brought in to just level the whole thing? Kinda makes me sad to think of bulldozers just blasting Andy Taylor's home, the Mayberry Courthouse and so on. I imagine I answered my own question, but wondered if anyone had any insight to it. I have read a lot about 40 acres online, but never seen anything about it's full on destruction.
  12. This is one of my absolute top favorites of Chaplin! I agree in calling it a masterpiece and sometimes I find the end Chaplin/Keaton scene on Youtube to see it again and again.
  13. I think one of the most famous chase scenes in a movie is the opening 18 wheeler chase in Beverly Hills Cop! The way that diesel sends cars up the electric or telephones poles! Wow!
  14. I have been very interested in the movie making process for quite awhile and am trying to learn as much as I can about the things that really intrigue me. As I asked about the car chases, I have another one... When shows like say The Andy Griffith Show shot a show, did they do all indoor scenes at once, then do all outdoor? I know some shows and movies of today can't do an order because they shoot in different locations and might have to mix things up. But something like TAGS, did they do their studios shots, then pack and head for the Franklin Reservoir lake? Or vice versa? By the car chase answers and other posts I have seen on here, I take some of you have worked in the movie/entertainment industry?!
  15. Wow, guys...thanks for all this info! I figured some of it was studio or backlot shot, like cars crashing thru big display windows, etc., but when you see cars busting it down a street and it seems to look like a real shot of a city or town, it boggles the mind! I appreciate the sharing on here!
