Who Killed 'Winter Kills'? was a fine behind-the-scenes look back from the film's principal players
9 July 2010 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this short documentary of the making of Winter Kills that was an extra on the second disc of the movie in question on the 2-DVD set from Anchor Bay. The title refers to the various ways Winter Kills had to stop production because of the debts that were accumulating while filming was going on especially since one of the exec producers was killed because of that and another of them was arrested for his marijuana possession. Fine anecdotes from players Jeff Bridges and Belinda Bauer, cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond, production designer Robert Boyle, and especially, writer/director William Richert. Great stories about John Huston, Richard Boone, Anthony Perkins, and Elizabeth Taylor abounded whenever any of the above people discussed them. While I myself wasn't too crazy about the movie because of the many convoluted sequences, I still marveled at the way things were put together as recounted here by these surviving players and admired how they kept going on the picture even though money was always running out...
