The Secret of My Success Trivia
“There's no such thing as an overnight success. Brantley Foster took two weeks.
We believe the following trivia is all legit. If it's bogus or you have additional info, please update us.
Thanks to tracey tateHelen slater who plays Fox's love interest in the movie also starred as Supergirl and as an inept kidnapper in the awesome 80's movie "Ruthless People" with Bette Middler and Danny De Vito.
Rewind ArchiveCindy Crawford makes a very brief cameo in a musical montage near the beginning, when Brantley moves to New York.
Editor NickVeteran actor Richard Jordan played Uncle Howard.
In a career spanning 4 decades, he would be seen in such hit movies as "Logan's Run" (1976), "Raise the Titanic" (1980), "Dune" (1984), "The Mean Season" (1985) and "The Hunt for Red October" (1990).
In 1993, his health began to fail and he was tragically diagnosed with brain cancer. He was filming The Fugitive in April 1993 when his terminal illness forced him to withdraw. He died on August 30, 1993.
Thanks to MichaelWhen Brantley is in the office of a recently vacated 'suit' enjoying the view from on high, the phone rings-he answers. During the conversation concerning boxcars, shipping and the like, he puts his feet on the desk. Notice the black ash stains on the bottom of his shoes, from stomping out cig butts during breaks in filming (Fox was a smoker at the time).
Rewind ArchiveHerbert Ross, the director, sadly died in October 2001 after a career that spanned more than three decades.
There's often fake stuff floating round, y'know? -Like the 'ghost boy' that can allegedly be seen in "Three Men And A Baby".
