Hi,Movie Trivia: Someti



Movie Trivia: Sometimes stand-ins will do the other person during a dialogue scene, where only one character is in the shot.

Famous example: In On the Waterfront (Best Picture Oscar, Best Actor Oscar Brando, Best Supporting Actor Nomination Steiger), there is a famous dialogue scene in the back of a taxi between Brando and Steiger. Brando wasn’t there when Steiger did his lines in the one-shot take; a member of the crew stood-in for Brando and read Brando’s lines. Steiger was quite "ticked off" about this but his anger may actually have made his performance more intense. Brando’s absence was due to a clause in his contract allowing him to leave the set by 4 pm every day so that he could meet with his psychiatrist!
