This Actor Played Five Separate Roles In The Wizard Of Oz

Because of the popularity of 1939's "The Wizard of Oz," a movie that was notoriously dangerous to film, modern audiences have a great deal of information about its production. Many books have been written about "The Wizard of Oz." I recommend "The Making of The Wizard of Oz: Movie Magic and Studio Power" (1977) by Aljean Harmetz for a good historical view of film production in 1939. But even for those of us who have seen the film dozens if not hundreds of times, there may be details, lyrics, nua...

Shrek 5: Everything We Know So Far

20 years ago, "Shrek" arrived and gave the world one of the most popular animated movie franchises ever. Mike Myers managed to truly connect as the swamp-dwelling ogre in a way few could have expected. That paved the way for DreamWorks to make a series of sequels, including the all-timer "Shrek 2." To date, four movies have made it to theaters, grossing billions along the way. But it's been more than a decade since 2010's "Shrek Forever After." The good news for fans is, another entry is on the ...

Dan Aykroyd's Original Ghostbusters Script Was Vastly Different

"If there's something strange, in your neighborhood, who you gonna call? Ghost...smashers??"Yes, "Ghost Smashers" was the not-so-catchy title of Dan Aykroyd's first draft that would go on to become the 1984 supernatural comedy hit, "Ghostbusters." Ivan Reitman's blockbuster became a pop culture phenomenon and remains a perennial favorite today, yet it could have been a very, very different movie if Aykroyd's original concept had made it to the big screen.Aykroyd is a passionate spokesperson for ...

Easter Eggs And References In Muppets Haunted Mansion You May Have Missed

Creepy and goofy are not mutually exclusive experiences. The mood of Disney's iconic Haunted Mansion ride is the result of a disagreement between two Imagineers, Marc Davis and Claude Coats, in the '60s. Coats wanted to make something genuinely scary. Davis wanted the attraction to be more fun. In the end, the Haunted Mansion is both; the mansion is brimming with silly gags, but still runs chills up guests' spines using a flurry of technological and illusory wonders.In 1969, three years after Wa...
