A look at the life of French actor Hervé Villechaize, co-star of the hit '70s TV series "Fantasy Island", who took his own life in 1993 at the age of 50.
His Real Life Was the Biggest Fantasy of All
Did You Know?
Director Sacha Gervasi
once conducted a lengthy interview with Hervé Villechaize
just prior to the latter's death. He found a fellow admirer in Peter Dinklage
, and they worked together on a screenplay for several years before HBO greenlit the movie, with Dinklage starring and Gervasi directing. See more
"Bittersweet Symphony" plays as Danny quits his job at the end of the movie. It may seem like a goof, since the scene is set in 1993 and the song was released in 1997, but it's actually not. The song does not play as within the story; it plays as a soundtrack over the end scene. Thus, there is no conflict within the events of the film. See more
