Before Cat's Eye began filming, Drew's mother Jaid had tried persuading Drew to take some time off, but Drew had replied,"I don't want to just sit around L.A. for three months." - Especially not when she could reap all the emotional benefits from being part of a production.
While making Cat's Eye, Drew liked hanging out with James Woods (who she thought was funny) and she worked a lot with Candy Clark. One scene Drew and Candy did together, where Drew found her pet parakeet Polly dead and blames her mother, required lots of crying. Candy was curious to know how Drew always managed to summon up the tears so convincingly on cue. Whenever Drew had to cry, she got very intense,and if there was a break in the scene she'd keep to herself or hide out in a dark corner so the mood wouldn't be broken. When Drew needed to cry, she explained to Candy, she thought about Gertie, the kitten Steven Spielberg had given her who had run away.

The "Christine" car in the movie was mine. I delivered it to the movie studio in Wilmington. They were filmimg the smoking party scene the day I was there, in an old church.

When movies are made, scenes are often
left on the cutting room floor.
Sometimes, there will be several versions
of a movie floating about on cable, tv or video etc. Other times, a Director may
release a special cut of the movie.
