Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Sure, this is a totally staged shot, but damn if it isn’t a wonderful staged shot. Today we have the cast of Doctor Zhivago sitting in the snow, looking over their shoulders at the camera.
Now that snow was most likely fake. My understanding is that when they shot the movie in Spain (doubling for Russia) they had an unusually mild winter and most of the snow in the film had to be faked, which is incredible to me because I swear to God I get physically cold when I watch Zhivago. That movie tricks my body into thinking the damn room is cold, so good job David Lean.
Thanks to Pat Barnett for sending this one along!
