One of the most inspiring and moving parts of filming "Starman" came for Morgan when he brought together six cinematographers and camera operators, all colleagues, who worked together like a symphony orchestra for the climactic crater sequence, with some of the men in airborne helicopters.

At the first stop for fuel, Jenny "rolls" down the window to speak with the attendant, but the action and sound are that of a power window. The Mustang II was never offered with power windows. See more »
The achingly gorgeous Karen Allen and the sublime Jeff Bridges star in this story of love and innocence.

This would be one of my 10 "Desert Island" movies.
