Description by

Story of the Scene gives the inside scoop on 80 famous moments in film, from legends to exclusives, from the hilarious to the downright sinister. Written by leading film critic, Roger Clarke, each story takes a famous movie moment - such as the Singin' in the Rain dance sequence, the Alien eruption scene or the 'You talkin' to me?' Taxi Driver sequence - and tells the unique circumstances of its creation: how the shot was made or the bizarre and often dangerous lengths a director or actor will go to, to get the perfect take. What were the exact details of Brandon Lee's actual death on camera during the filming of The Crow? Were the cast and crew of The Exorcist really cursed? Did Arnold Schwarzenegger improvise his famous 'I'll be back' line in The Terminator? And just why did actor Michael Madsen drive around LA with his fellow actor in the trunk of his car prior to filming the "Stuck in the Middle with You" sequence for Reservoir Dogs? Story of the Scene opens up the true stories behind the myths and legends and reveals many more besides.
