Pee Wee's Big Adventure
In Pee Wee's Big Adventure when pee wee enters the magic shop the name on the window is not backwards. The window says Magic Shop or whatever but if it were written on the inside when people outside saw it it would say pohS cigaM.

When the Freelings are driving away at the end of "Poltergeist," watch Robby. He is wearing red pajamas. During one quick scene when he mutters, "Drive away, Daddy, drive away!" he is wearing blue flannel pajamas. Then in his next shot, he is back in the red ones.
In the ending she was supposed to end up with Ducky. The ACTRESS didn't protest, though. When they showed the movie to a test audience, they did not like it, they thought she should end up with Blane. Which is the whole reason Blane is so skinny at the end of the movie. They had to reshoot the movie after it was completely finnished, Andrew McCartney was doing a play on Broadway that he had lost weight for and shaved his head, so he is in fact wearing a wig.
In contradiction to a pervious post re: this film, Molly Ringwald *did* voice her opinion that she felt Andie should end up with Blane. According to interviews of Ringwald, Deutch, Cryer & Shuler-Donner on the "Pretty In Pink: Everything's Duckie" DVD, the following reasons were given for the film's re-shot ending...1) Screening audiences wanted Andie to end up with Blane; 2) Paramount wanted the ending the audiences preferred, as the company was worried about losing money if the film flopped; 3) Hughes and Shuler-Donner worried about the 'message' the film sent about people from different classes finding love...they feared audiences might take away the thought that people from different classes shouldn't mix; 4) Ringwald did not like the way she looked in the original scenes - she was ill and was noticably so; and 5) Ringwald felt she had no romantic chemistry with Cryer, whereas she did with McCarthy. She said that the original ending "made me feel like I was ending up with my brother." Her real-life attraction to McCarthy also swayed her opinion that Andie should end up with Blane. This is all well-documented in the aforementioned DVD, and is fact.
At the end of Pretty on Pink, you can tell that Andrew McCarthey is thinner, paler and he's wearing a wig.
In the movie 'Pretty in Pink', the character portrayed by Molly Ringwald was originally supposed to end up with Duckie, but the actress protested, and so the ending was changed.
