Did You Know?
I always loved those 1960s films and the things Richard Lester
had done with The Beatles
, and I conceived An American Werewolf in London
(1981) with that spirit in mind. London was horror central, of course, home of Jack the Ripper, Jekyll and Hyde, so I wanted all that Victorian Gothic, but I also wanted to show the real London of 1981.
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.
