E.T. provided the inspiration for Neil Diamond's song "Heartlight" but no mention is ever made of the movie in the lyrics. The songwriters paid the studio a nominal sum for use of ideas from the movie. See more »
At the beginning when the men are searching for E.T., the keys on the "Key Man" keep changing sides between shots. See more »
Classic movie that anyone can enjoy, special effects still hold up. It deserves emotion and action when it wants to. Would recommend this to anyone who has not watched it yet, pretty entertaining movie.
