What did you do to the Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day’s eyes?!?

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

Today’s BTS image is a rather choice shot of director Roman Polanski setting up a shot during the making of Rosemary’s Baby. I always love making-of images that show just how crazy the process of getting a shot in a movie can be. This one is relatively small in scope, with a tiny light (being held by hand) and an even smaller than expected camera, but just look at how everybody is crowding on the bed with Ms. Farrow.

Anyway, it’s a great shot from a great movie. Thanks to Pat Barnett for the image! Click to enlargen!



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

Tomorrow’s pic smells like burnt dog hair.

    Mia Farrow

    by yourebreakingthejacket

    Was definitely bangable in this. Also, Guy Woodhouse should go down as one of the best villains in history. Cool, creepy flick.

    How does one choose a name for demonic spawn?

    by Keith

    Adrian and Damian...I guess they just sound kind of right, somehow. I'd like to see a movie in which the devil's child is called Alan. Or Terry.

    How many years was this before Polanski raped that girl?

    by dancetothebeatofthelivingdead

    He raped a child. Girl could actually describe someone post-pubescent. But goody goody gumdrops, look at all the hip directors and actors lobbying on his behalf. He drugged and ass-raped a fucking child!!!!!!!

    Whens the remake coming out?

    This photo of the pedophile rapist shooting his film reminds me of one of the best and most telling Hollwood stories I have ever heard. It was in Robert Evans' doc, The Kid Stays In The Picture. Everyone knows the story of how Sinatra got wind of the kind of movie his pretty young little wife was filming and gave her an ultimatum: quit the movie or hit the road, right? Well, according to Evans, Mia came into his office crying saying she had to quit because Frank was gonna divorce her. Evans nearly shit himself because this high profile big budget movie was half filmed. So Evans calmed her down and took her into his screening room and showed her dailies. I think it was the phone booth scene, but I'm not positive on that. When Mia saw her performance along with Evans' commentary telling her how powerful her performance was and that she was gonna win an Academy Award, she immediately decided to tell Frank to get fucked. So, as everyone knows, Sinatra had divorce papers delivered to the set the next day. However, and this is the best part, MIa lobbied for the movie to open on the same weekend as Frank's movie, The Detective, which was based on a best seller and expected to be a huge hit. Well, we all know what happened, and Rosemary's Baby is one of filmdom's most iconic movies and The Detective is forgotten, although pretty good. Rosemary's Baby trounced The Detective on opening weekend, just fucking decimated it. Mia Farrow, now we all know Mia Farrow as this nice little woman who adopts poor disenfrachised children, and one of the sweetest and most generous and charitable women Hollywood has ever seen, right? Not this weekend. She took out a full page ad in Variety. The only thing in the ad was the box office results for the opening weekend. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, indeed.

    What the fuck?

    by dancetothebeatofthelivingdead

    I just wrote out this long description of this story I heard, clicked post, saw it go up on the TB, and now it's gone. What the fuck is with this fucking archaic site? Anyway, I'm bored, I'll share it again. This picture reminded me of the story that I heard in Robert Evans' movie, The Kid Stays In The Picture. Everyone knows the story about Sinatra finding out the plot of his wife's new movie and giving her the ultimatum to walk from the film or he's walking from the marriage, right? Well, there's more to the story than the famous version. According to Evans, Mia came into his office a complete sobbing mess. She told him that Frank told her if she doesn't quit the movie, that he's gonna divorce her. Evans damn near dropped dead from panic, this was a high profile project with a big budget, and it was half filmed. So he had an idea; he takes Mia into his screening room and shows her dailies. I think it was the phone booth scene, but I'm not positive about that. Anyway, Mia sees how fucking good she is in the movie and has Evans whispering in her ear about how she's a lock for an Academy Award. That's all it took, Mia collected herself and told Sinatra that she wasn't quitting. So, as everyone already knows, Sinatra had divorce papers delivered to her on the set the next day. But the story doesn't end there, the best is yet to come. Mia lobbies hard to Evans to release Rosemary's Baby on the same day that Sinatra's movie, The Detective is coming out. Evans gives in and Rosemary's Baby just trounces, crushes, decimates Sinatra's movie, which was supposed to be a big hit, btw. So Mia takes an ad out on Monday in Variety, she buys a full two page spread. The only writing on the whole spread is the box office results of the past weekend. Now we all know Mia Farrow to be an extremely charitable and giving and tender person, but fuck! Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, indeed! Now let's see if the post stays this time.

    I saw this at the theater when very young.

    by Raptor Jesus

    First time I'd ever seen naked boobies onscreen in a movie. Memorable experience, that.

    So what DID they do to its eyes?

    by spacehog

    I always found that line chilling, how open-ended it was. Did the baby have weird, demon-looking eyes? Did the cultists actually cut them out or sew them shut or something? I could never make up my mind what would be worse. What did all y'all picture?

  • Oct. 10, 2012, 10:02 a.m. CST

    @spacehog: I just thought they mismatched the eyeliner on both eyes.

    Women go apeshit over stuff like that.

    spacehog - Adrian's eyes

    by Keith

    In the novel, Adrian's eyes are described thus: 'His eyes were yellow, all golden-yellow, with neither whites nor irises; all golden-yellow with vertical black slit pupils."

    misterdarcy: thank you!

    by spacehog

    I'd wondered if the book went into detail. Although now I think I prefer the ambiguity of the movie.

  • Oct. 10, 2012, 7:06 p.m. CST

    at least i got the eye color right..
