Did You Know?
[on the death of Michael Jackson
] I was lucky enough to know and work with Michael Jackson
in his prime. Michael was an extraordinary talent and a truly great international star. He had a troubled and complicated life and despite his gifts, remains a tragic figure. My wife Deborah and I will always have great affection for him.
During the filming of The Blues Brothers
(1980) John Belushi
's drug use was at its height. On a day of filming Belushi didn't want to come out of his trailer. John Landis, who was fed up with Belushi and his antics, reportedly forced his way in to Belushi's trailer, grabbed all of Belushi's drug stash and flushed them down the toilet. Landis told him he wasn't going to be putting up this anymore.
Airport scenes in Into the Night
(1985) and Coming to America
(1988) have a call over the PA system for a 'Mr Frank Ozkerwitz' to pick up the white courtesy phone. This is Frank Oz
's real name. Landis' work frequently features Oz.
