Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #46 Field of Dreams

The Boys of Summer

Thanks for joining us this week as we present a classic movie..
"Field of Dreams"

Did you know this is the 20th anniversary of Field of dreams I didn't. I knew that is was a while a ago and I wasn't a kid.. But I had know idea that it was 20 years ago... This movie was made while Kevin was defiantly on a roll. "Bull Durham" was just before this movie and "Dances with Wolves" was after...

Cool things about Kevin Cosner... He just had his 6th child... When he graduated from High school he was only 5'2" now he is 6'1"... His first wife played Snow White at Disneyland and he sang in the church choir as a teen...

Movie Facts:
Nominated for 3 Oscars. Another 5 wins & 8 nominations

Tom Hanks was originally offered the role of Ray Kinsella but turned it down.

During filming, Iowa was in the middle of a drought, and the cornfields surrounding the diamond had to be given lots of extra water in order to grow tall enough for the actors to disappear into the stalks. As a result, the corn grew too fast for the Costner shots. In the one scene where corn is above his shoulders, he is walking on an elevated plank.

More cool facts found here on Imdb.com
