Hollywood at home

More Information

Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Steven Spielberg has stated that absolutely nothing in his life has been more difficult than editing the final 25 minutes of Close Encounters of the Third Kind.


Dr. Zhivago
Over 4000 daffodils were imported from the Netherlands and placed on the outskirts of the mountain town of Soria, where Zhivago's father-in-law's country estate was located.


There is a scene where Gandhi is insulted by some young boys while he is walking on the sidewalk of South Africa . One of the boys is none other than Daniel Day-Lewis.


Lawrence of Arabia
King Hussein of Jordan lent an entire brigade of his Arab Legion as extras for the film, so most of the "soldiers" are played by real soldiers. Hussein frequently visited the sets and became enamored of a young British secretary, Antoinette Gardiner, who became his second wife in 1962.
