Production began in mid 1983 and later halted in early 1984 after Andy Kaufman was diagnosed with lung cancer. Production and research resumed over one year after his death for another two years as well as a year of editing before being released in 1989, five years after Kaufman's death. See more »
I was born too late to witness Andy Kaufman's genius when it was brand new, but it's still incredibly fresh. The fact that people are still wondering how serious the wrestling was is a testament to Kaufman's uncanny abilities. This is the movie that prompted me to start watching "Taxi" reruns on Nickelodeon.
I'm also looking forward to "Man on the Moon". If Carrey doesn't screw it up, he could be an Oscar contender playing the role of such an interesting character.
