Sleepy Hollow (1999)
Star Johnny Depp adopted Goldeneye, the horse that played Gunpowder, Ichabod Crane’s horse in the film, when he heard it was going to be put down.
Each and every outfit for the film was hand-knit by one woman with tiny needles nearly as thin as a human hair. There were tiny gloves made to fit the character’s fingers, and undergarments that were never even seen in the film.
The mechanical shark spent most of the movie broken-down, and was unavailable for certain shots. This led Steven Spielberg to use the camera as the “shark”, and film from the shark’s point of view. Many think this added to the “chilling/haunting” quality in the final release saying that it would have made it too “cheesy” had they shown the shark as much as originally planned.
Behind the scenes creation of the animatronic lion, which had a performer strapped in during filming.
Robin Hood (1973)
Robin Hood was the lowest-budget Disney movie ever produced, costing only about $1.5 million. Many scenes from Snow White, The Jungle Book, and the Aristocats were taken and recycled.
The Blair Witch Project (1999)
One of the video cameras used by the actors was bought at Circuit City. After filming was completed, the producers returned the camera for a refund, making their budget money go even further.
Corpse Bride (2005)
The maggot’s voice, mannerisms and facial appearance are an impersonation of Peter Lorre.
Due to a zipper breaking, Olivia Newton-John had to be sewn into the trousers she wears in the last sequence (the carnival at Rydell).
