K-Billy’s Super Sounds of the 70s weekend just keeps on truckin’ with The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!

Today we have something rather special. These are some personal photos from the set of a tiny indie flick directed by a green writer/director named Quentin Tarantino. This film is, of course, Reservoir Dogs.

The lovely reader, who I’ll call Mr. Beige, sent these along and they show how very small this set was. Is it just more or does it feel like an extremely laid back atmosphere shows through in these pics? I especially like the first one of Tarantino talking with Steve Buscemi and the last one of him posing with his tiny, non-superstar filmmaker car.

Hope you guys enjoy these very candid stills taken on the set of one of the most important independent films of the last quarter century! Click to embiggen!






If you have a behind the scenes shot you’d like to submit to this column, you can email me at

Tomorrow’s behind the scenes pic is most non-non-non heinous!

    I read the Django screenplay

    by TheJudger

    I totally understand wanting Will Smith for the role. I really liked the screenplay.

    1 Question. What the FUCK happend to Mr. Blue???

    by Tarantinos_Forehead

  • May 17, 2011, 3:23 a.m. CST

    You dont want a use a nice car for filming

    by TheJudger

    Seriously! Sometimes Basecamp might be located in a nice cozy church parking lot. sometimes it might be in a fucking muddy field out in the middle bumfuck nowhere.. Basecamp locations aren't always nice places. What if a crew members gets pissed off at you. They might key the fuck outta your car, piss in the arm rest, throw a bag of shit in the glove box, and sugar the tank. Always drive a reliable cheap piece of shit or a rental when shooting films.

    @tarantinos_forehead : The fate of Mr. Blue

    by V'Shael

    Joe tells the group (when he arrives) that Blue is dead. Presumably, killed by cops during the robbery/escape.

    by reaper28

    Sounds like you have some personal experience in that field ... care to elaborate? ;)

  • May 17, 2011, 4:29 a.m. CST

    either he's alive, or he's dead or the cops got him..

    by Righteous Brother

    or they don't. Watched this again recently, a great fucking movie, Tarantinos best.

    This makes up for that Community photo.

    by Citizin_insane

    I've always wondered how scary it would have been trying to direct so much talent in as a first time director.

  • May 17, 2011, 6:29 a.m. CST

    19 years ....


    Fuck ... Where does it go??

    I don't tip...

    by MoneyGrabSequel

    Most quotable movie - second only to Ghostbusters...maybe. At one time I could quote the entire bathroom story. Classic

    Seeing this pic...

    by Mr Soze

    Quentin does look like he belongs behind a Blockbuster video counter talking trash.

    bloody hell. What a film.

    RE: "The Guy Looks Just Like... The Thing!!"

    by Stalkeye

    LOL yeah, that scene also include some comment about "that Invisible Bitch.." I also noticed a poster of Silver Surfer (signed by Jack Kirby.) in Tim Roth's Apartment. It's more than obvious that QT is a FF fan.

  • May 17, 2011, 9:10 a.m. CST

    I think QT drove that Geo Metro long after he needed to.

    Who was James Woods meant to play?

    by BookhouseBoy

    I heard he was offered a role in this...

    Loved Lawrence Tierney in the Movie

    by Aquatarkusman

    Although occasionally I can't remember which of his quotes came from this movie and which came from his animated guest appearance as the guard who busts Bart for shoplifting in a Simpsons episode: "If I wanted smoke blown up my ass, I'd be at home with a pack of cigarettes and a short length of hose."

    As For Most Quotable Movie..

    by Aquatarkusman

    .. didn't Miller's Crossing also come out in the early 90s? "Naw. It stayed a hat."

  • But I love that Steeler's Wheel song.

  • May 17, 2011, 10:16 a.m. CST

    TheJudger: Can you believe the rumor is QT wants Lady Gaga to play Lara Lee?


    And in a crazy way, I think it just might work. "Somebody give Miss Lara a gun." Can't wait!

    Most Quotable Movie

    by SutureSelf

    The most quotable movie is, of course, Casablanca. "We'll always have Paris," "Play it, Sam," "I'm shocked! shocked, I tell you!," "This could be the start of a beautiful friendship," "Of all the gin joints in the world...," "the problems of three little people don't amount to a hill of beans," are just a few lines off the top of my head that have made their way into everyday conversation and are recognized even by people who have never seen the movie.

    Now, THESE are some premium-grade BTS pix!

    by WriteForTheEdit

    To have been there, during the making of that film... what I would have given... And god bless Steven Fucking Wright. "...the Boyhwemeth..."

    QT & Fantastic Four

    by blunted666

    I believe he was uncredited but wrote the Silver Surfer argument scene in Crimson Tide as well

    Why Tim Roth revealed he was a cop

    by Nasty In The Pasty

    It's basically kind of a Samurai "honor" thing. Mr. Orange knows he fucked over Mr. White (who he had grown to admire), and he fessed up at the end as a form of pennance, even knowing it would likely lead to hiss death.

  • May 17, 2011, 12:40 p.m. CST


    by Tarantinos_Forehead

    Thanks, After 20yrs of watching that movie countless time i never heard that. DAMMIT A.D.D.!!

  • May 17, 2011, 12:49 p.m. CST


    by Tarantinos_Forehead

    wich is also funny because in Pulp Fiction was that chene in the diner where Abomination was trying to rob it but Nic Fury was trying to teach him the lesson of life while at the same time trying to convince himself that he should quit his gangster lifestyle while Howard Saint is just comming from taking a shit and noticed Abomination and something that looks like Morph try to rob the diner but only leave with everyone's wallets. Which explains whe QT has such a big head... He's M.O.D.O.K.

    What is the corner animation supposed to be THIS time?

    by Nasty In The Pasty

    by alan_poon

    It's a close call between this and Jackie Brown as Q.T's best effort thus far.

  • May 17, 2011, 6:41 p.m. CST

    Thanks, BTS Pic of the Day!

    by HapaPapa72

    Maybe by reminding us of how much QT accomplished by being a lover of movies and pop culture himself will motivate US all to get off our collective asses and do something equally great stemming from the things WE love. Naaaah!!!!

  • May 17, 2011, 6:42 p.m. CST

    And yeah, SUCH a damn quotable movie...

    Most quotable movie is Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Quotable does not equal gets you laid, however. Now go and boil your bottoms, sons of a silly person!
