Name Of The Rose Trivia
We believe the following trivia is all legit. If it's bogus or you have additional info, please update us.
Rewind ArchiveName Of The Rose was Christian Slater's big studio screen debut, he had previously appeared in the 1985 teen-rebellion indie flick "The Legend of Billie Jean".
Rewind Archive"The Girl" (Valentina Vargas) is the only female character in the film, and she does not speak.
Thanks to LozThe peasant girl who Christian Slater's character has feelings for was played by Chilian model and actress Valentina Vargas. She went on to appear in "Hellraiser": "Bloodline" and "Southern Cross".
Rewind ArchiveThe cinematography is by Tonino Delli Colli who worked on many Italian pictures including Sergio Leone's last westerns along with "Once Upon A Time America".
Thanks to Gregg S. LlorenFans of the movie are well advised to read the novel. Just like some other novels turned into movies, there are delicious details of the novel that have been adjusted, if not deleted, for the movie: Bernard Gui did not die by falling on one of his torture machines; the girl was eventually burned at the stake; William was not able to save any of the books; the abbey-burning scene was more horrific than as shown in the movie; there was that melancholic scene at the ending of the novel where Adso went back to the ruins of the Abbey years later in one of his return trips to Italy from his Abbey in Melk. He was able to collect bits of burnt parchments he kept as souvenirs. Reading it could be tedious though; almost like reading a research material from the Vatican Secret Archives. Well, consider this on the writer, Umberto Eco, being a scholarly medievalist and a professor of semiotics. There is also another book on how to get the most from the novel!
There's often fake stuff floating round, y'know? -Like the 'ghost boy' that can allegedly be seen in "Three Men And A Baby".
But, nothing bogus that we know yet for "Name Of The Rose".
