Did You Know?


The film was shot on location in Newberry Springs, California where the temperature peeked at 130 degrees. It was so hot the equipment started melting. Also, while shooting one of the last shots of the movie, Fred Savage tossed his leading lady, (Alison Moir), over his shoulder, then tumbled to the ground needing 4 stitches in his elbow. The toss wasn't in the script. See more »

Little Freddy's All Grown Up
8 March 2000 | by (LA, CA) – See all my reviews

This was a very amusing film staring none other than Mr. Savage Himself. The Wonder Years are no more, so Savage lived it up in this western-themed short. It's definitely worth checking out. I saw it on a DVD called SHORT 2: Dreams. There's an alternate audio track with the writer, director and producer. It's well worth it. I bought my copy on Go give it a whirl!
