Lately, I've been thinking of many of my favorite films that I'd like to hear a commentary on. Unfortunately, some of the stars of those films have since past on. For example, I think Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon were two of the absolute best comedic geniuses that ever graced the silver screen. My favorite films of theirs include The Odd Couple
(1968), Grumpy Old Men
(1993), Grumpier Old Men
(1995), Out To Sea
(1997), and The Odd Couple II
(1998). What a shame that they never got to record a commentary for their films. I imagine that it would have been a hilarious listen. The Grumpy tracks would probably have been full of "putz
es" and "dickhead
As a major horror fan I regret that Anthony Perkins never got the chance to record commentaries for Psycho
s 1-4. He seemed like a really intelligent man and I would have loved to have heard his comments and experiences from the films and as being forever known as Norman Bates, one of the most popular horror psychos of all time.
A bit of Psycho II
(1983) trivia from the IMDb
| Meg Tilly was never allowed to watch any sort of television as a child, and so had never seen the original Psycho (1960) and was unaware of its significance. She didn't understand why the press was giving all the attention to Anthony Perkins for his comeback role in this movie, and one day on the set Perkins overheard her say, "Why is Tony getting all the attention?" Perkins was upset, didn't talk to her during filming, and recommended that she be replaced, even though half of her scenes had already been shot. |
It's also quite unfortunate that Donald Pleasence never got to record commentaries for Halloween
s 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6. IMO, Dr. Loomis was the most important character (other than Michael Myers) in the Halloween series.
