Anthony Hopkins chose a moldy, mildewy storage room at the Redondo Beach Elks Lodge, CA to film his bedroom dream sequence because he didn't have to dress the walls to look moldy and mildewy. He also used the Lodge Room as a sound-stage for a TV news insert for a later bar scene and filmed the front of the Lodge as an emergency room entrance for his ambulance rush sequence. He signed autographs, posed for pictures, and used one of the Lodge members and his wife in the exterior scene. See more »

"You see, Willard, in this world, things get... confused out there. Power, ideals, the old morality, practical filmmaking necessity. But out there in Hollywood with these actors, it must be a temptation to... be a director.
Because there's a conflict in every human heart, between the rational and irrational, between good filmmaking and pointless, artsy-fartsy crap. And good movies do NOT always triumph. Sometimes, the dark side of the screen overcomes what Lewis called, "your best entertainment."
