Hollywood at home

More Information

Annie Hall
The scene where Alvy and Annie are at their psychiatrists, which looks like a split screen scene, was actually shot simultaneously on one set with an adjoining wall.


The Last Picture Shoe
All the film's music (except for the closing credits and the live band at the Christmas party) is played in the background on radios, jukeboxes, or on a portable record player.


Kramer vs. Kramer
The strength of the performances of the two lead actors can be at least partly attributed to what was going on in their private lives at the time. Dustin Hoffman was in the midst of a divorce, while Meryl Streep was recovering from the death of her lover, John Cazale.


Risky Business
The sunglasses Joel wears are the Ray-Ban Wayfarer model. Annual sales of Wayfarers were languishing as of 1983 but skyrocketed 2000% after the movie's release.


Fat Man and Little Boy
The "Fat Man" and "Little Boy" code names (or nick names), which were originally known as "Fat Man" and "Thin Man", were derived from characters in the written stories of writer Dashiell Hammett.
