Trivia

Due to its controversial plot and its nomination in the competition at the 1970 Berlin International Film Festival, the jury president that year, the American director George Stevens, demanded that the film be removed from the festival. This caused such controversy that the festival directors offered their resignation and the festival broke down before it ended. See more »

Shocker
12 August 2006 | by (Costa Rica) – See all my reviews

Hi there, by chance I saw a documentary about Mr. Michael Verhoeven about a week ago. While writing him, I also looked up the IMDb for data, and stumbled across your comment on his film "OK".

I was the sound engineer who dubbed and mixed the film back then.

Mike W comments: "There is also a very strange Moog synthesizer score, repeating an electronic loop every few minutes again." This "loop" was mainly caused by a machine fault during the recording of the music in the studio. We increased the fault mechanically - no modern effects black-box at that time! - and the result is what finally went into the the music track at the mix.

As I speak "bavarian" I still have some clue lines present - after more than 30 years! Best regards from Costa Rica, Haymo Henry Heyder haymohenry@gmail.com
