FILM 1656: SWEET HOME ALABAMA

TRIVIA: This was the first movie to be allowed to shoot in New York after the September 11, 2001 attacks.

In addition to being the first film allowed to film in New York after 9/11, this was also the first film to film in Tiffany's since Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961).

The coon dog cemetery featured in the film is a real place in Tuscumbia, Alabama (a north Alabama town just south of Florence, as well as childhood home of Helen Keller) whose story was told in The Miracle Worker (1962).

Reese Witherspoon and Josh Lucas both appeared in American Psycho (2000).





FILM 1655: FOOLS RUSH IN

TRIVIA: The role of Alex's (Matthew Perry) father is played by John Bennett Perry, who is actually Matthew Perry's father.

Before the movie was filmed, there was no Arizona/Nevada "border" painted on the highway that spans the Hoover Dam. When it was added for the movie, local officials decided to keep it intact after the filming of the movie. As of September 2005 the border painted in the street is no longer there.

Jennifer Lopez was offered the role of Isabel Fuentes but turned it down in favor of Anaconda (1997).





FILM 1654: CASTING JONBENET 

The unsolved death of six-year-old American beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey remains the world's most sensational child murder case. Over 15 months, responses, reflections and performances were elicited from the Ramsey's Colorado hometown community, creating a bold work of art from the collective memories and mythologies the crime inspired.
