Trivia

Gabriel Bologna was stuck in an elevator with Ron Howard in real life. Gabriel happened to have a script under his arm and contemplated pressing the stop button and pitching him the movie, but instead, came up with the idea for "The Elevator" about a struggling writer who traps a producer in an elevator and forces him to listen to his script that he reads from cover to cover.

Hollywood producer trapped on elevator by writer
5 August 1999 | by (THE SEA RANCH, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

A contrivance in which a Hollywood producer (Martin Landau) is trapped on an elevator by screenplay writer/elevator operator (Arye Gross) provides a basis for presentation of some interesting short filmplays with good quality performances by a variety of familiar film actors. Good entertainment.
