30 More Great Behind The Scenes Photos
Pulling back the curtain on cinema's greatest movies

submit to reddit

From the people who brought you ‘30 Great Behind The Scenes Photos’ and ‘Another 30 Great Behind The Scenes Photos’ – yup, us! – comes a feature they’re calling ‘Son Of 30 Great Behind The Scenes Photos’. Read on for some rare glimpses at off-screen moments that feature some of our favourite acting / directing / producing folk. Some are spectacular, some are intimate, some have Gerard Butler is his Spartan skimpys. Enjoy.

WORDS PHIL DE SEMLYEN

 
THE BIG LEBOWSKI (1998)

Joel Coen checks in to see what condition Jeff Bridges is in on the set of The Big Lebowski. The trippy dream sequence, soundtracked by Kenny Rogers and dubbed ‘Gutterballs’, is the Coen brothers’ homage to Busby Berkeley’s 1930 song-and-dance special, Whoopee!, and plays like a really, really stoned Inception. Whoopee! was itself inspired by a Broadway musical and Ziegfeld touches abound, although it’s unlikely that The Dude knows this. Hey, the man’s got marmots on his mind.

Bogart and Wilder 'eventually made up years later...' I doubt it - Bogart died in January 1957. I suppose it depends how you define 'years later'. More

Time for another work experience bod to check some facts I think - Theron (Dominic West) didn't trot off to fight Xerxes! He stayed at home to lock "horns" with Cersei! More
