A different sort of 'making of' featurette.
7 August 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The DVD for "Giant" has an accompanying disc of extras and has several 'making of' featurettes. While they are different in tone and style, the films often use some of the exact same interviews--something to think about if you plan on buying the 2-disc set.

The focus of "Memories of 'Giant'" is less a making of film and more just letting various stars from the movie recall the experience--particularly how much they enjoyed the camaraderie during and after shooting. Much of this is because the film was made in the middle of nowhere in Texas (Marfa, Texas to be exact)--and at nights there wasn't much to do but spend their time together. Folks like Jane Withers, Earl Holliman and Carol Baker have recently been interviewed for this film. However, we are also very lucky that the director (George Stevens) and Rock Hudson had previously been filmed talking about this, as they had died long before the special feature was made. Also, while they don't say why, apparently Elizabeth Taylor did not wish to be interviewed for the film and James Dean died way back in 1955. Well worth seeing--especially since all the nice stuff they said about each other was NOT part of the studio publicity department (I HATE when they bring out films like this and it's obviously staged) and they gave some interesting anecdotes (such as how shy Dean was).
