Storyline

This homage to the childhood days of the motion pictures starts in 1910, when the young attorney Leo Harrigan by chance meets a motion picture producer. Immediately he's invited to become a writer for him - the start of a sensational career. Soon he's promoted to a director and shoots one silent movie after the other in the tiny desert village Cacamonga with a small crew of actors. But the competition is hard: the patent agency sends out Buck Greenway to sabotage them. When they visit L.A., his crew is surprised by a new species: fans!

I was on the set of Nickelodeon
2 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Much of Nickelodeon was shot in the foothills outside of Modesto CA where I lived. Everyone connected with the film stayed at the Holiday Inn which was where I hung out. Modesto is a small town and there wasn't much to do except to go to the Inn and swim and play chess. I meet a few people and the next thing I know I was on set everyday. Most people think of filming as long and tedious but I loved watching it all. The first person I met was Ryan but because he was dressed in costume I didn't recognize him immediate but I must say he was charming. John Ritter was very nice. Mr.Bogdonovitch was very impressive, as was Polly Platt! The one person who impressed me above all others was Tatum. She was a very caring and sweet girl. It didn't take long to learn enough about her history to help me understand the problems she is having in her later years. I wish she could let go of the past pain and really enjoy life in a healthy way. In all, I had a wonderful time and enjoyed the movie probably more than some people just because of the experience I had while it was being made. Just today I found out that Lazlo Kovacs passed away last year, on my birthday, and that I had not heard about it. How sad, he was a great talent and a wonderful person. Meeting him was an honor. When he looked at you it was if he was seeing who you for who you really are, through and through. What a life you have lived, Mr. Lazlo. Thank you for sharing your visions of beauty with us all.
