The Money Pit Trivia
“It's enough to bring the house down
We believe the following trivia is all legit. If it's bogus or you have additional info, please update us.
Thanks to mlm_lisaThe old lady who initally sold the couple the house (Maureen Stapleton) is also in the Cocoon movies as well as in "Johnny Dangerously".
Thanks to Santiago VelasquezAlexander Godunov, who played Max, started off as an amazingly talented ballet dancer. One of his classmates and friends at the Riga Ballet school in Russia was Mikhail Baryshnikov. After graduating he toured with the Moscow Classical Ballet. In 1973 he won a gold medal at the Moscow International Competition. In August 1979 he defected from the USSR. The story grew in importance when his ballerina wife returned to the USSR a few days later. He joined the American Ballet Theater and danced with it until 1982 when he and its director Baryshnikov had a falling out. He was, by then, a frequent companion of Jacqueline Bisset. Sadly, Godunov, who also played excellent parts in "Die Hard" and "Witness" died in May of 1995. He was just 45 years old.
Editor NickThe Volkswagen Beetle covered in light bulbs is called The LIGHTMOBILE. It was created by Eric Staller, an American artist born September 14, 1947 and the first in his 'urban UFOs series'.
The little VW is covered with 1659 lamps that are computerized into 20 different patterns of light flowing over the car.
Thanks to SSG Rik GuidoThe lead crossdresser in many scenes, the one with the gravely voice is Lesley West the lead singer/guitarist from the 70's rock group Mountain.
Thanks to Frank R.There is a picture of Olivia Newton-John on Alexander Gudonov's wall in the scene after Shelley Long spends the night at his place. She has her hair up, with an old fashioned hat with one of those net-like things over her face. The picture appeared on the back of her 1985 single, "Soul Kiss."
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 "The Money Pit".
