the money."
I remember that Stack was offered
a piece of the picture,
a piece of the picture
or another 20 grand.
And he took the other 20 grand.
Picked the wrong door!
He thought people wouldn't be
that excited about laughing at him.
- That's me vomiting.
- That's right, that's you.
- Doing the voiceover.
- All the vomiting is Jim.
I later parlayed that into...
This is my mother
with brown hair coming up.
I remember Leslie Nielsen
at the first rehearsal
was not quite... did not quite
get exactly what we were doing
and we sent him home
with a tape.
And there was a doctor
in "Zero Hour",
and just tried to explain to him
what we were doing, the style,
and he saw that,
he took that home, watched it
and got exactly what we were doing.
From then on he was a fish in water
with all this kind of comedy.
This was a George Kennedy part.
- Most of these guys weren't our...
- Lloyd Bridges was.
Most of these guys
were not the first choice.
We tried Efrem Zimbalist
for some things, Jack Webb...
We always go to Charlton Heston.
We were thinking
of one of those TV doctors...
- Ben Casey!
- Ben Casey, whoever that was.
- Vince Edwards.
- Vince Edwards.
- We met with him.
- He turned it...
- He did a TV movie instead.
- That's right.
In retrospect probably not wise.
- But, you know...
- Who knew?
We lucked out
because we got all the right people.
Despite our stupidity.
Didn't somebody...
Some guys turned it down,
saying "I don't like their movies",
they hated "Kentucky Fried Movie".
Didn't the guy Jack Lord, maybe?
You could hardly blame him.
- To their credit.
- Exactly.
The guy who was on "Rat Patrol".
So he was like, "I would never appear
in one of their movies."
The interesting thing here
is there's no take two.
Literally.
- We called this the mirror shot.
- Two white-haired guys.
Do you remember,
there was no take two?
We were so short on time
There was nowhere else to put it.
The casting director
could not understand
why we wanted Leslie Nielsen.
He said, "Leslie Nielsen's the guy
you cast the night before!"
This is the short-pants era
of flying.
That was pretty elaborate,
gimballing the plane, wasn't it?
We didn't, I think
we just shook the camera.
- But you know, it works, it's...
- Very effective.
It's not exactly
The Perfect Storm but...
- It's time for another great story.
- Yeah.
About the premier?
The premier, yeah,
that was a disaster.
Michael Eisner insisted on having
the premier at Paramount Studios.
He didn't want
to leave the studio for it,
and that's where we had it.
And hiring those cars, you know?
And they actually
put the reels up out of order.
And it was interesting,
Jon, you tell your reaction,
but we had three
distinctly different reactions.
I, because I was so nervous before,
had gone out for some cocktails.
So all of a sudden reel five comes up
and I start thinking,
"Gosh, this really steps along.
"We were worried
about a pacing problem
"but look,
it's really moving along."
David?
I thought the movie was getting
such a low-level reaction
that I was glad for the excuse
that the reels were mixed up.
Well, of course it didn't work!
So I was relieved
there was a massive screw-up.
I ran back to the booth
and screamed at the projectionist
like George C Scott
in "Hard Core" - "Take it off!"
And the projectionist said,
"No, it's right."
"No," I said, "It's the wrong reel!"
And he'd put up the shit
hitting the fan reel too soon.
It began with
the shit hitting the fan,
so he took it off and he found...
so we're waiting for five minutes
for the next reel.
They stopped the movie, put on the
lights and rethreaded the projector.
There's Mom.
Everybody remembers that.
And... and so he
put up the right thing,
but then when they got
the movie started again,
when that reel was done
he put up the next reel,
which started
with shit hitting the fan.
So everyone said it was too much
having
