"WE SHOT ALL NIGHT IN TWIN TOWERS. SO MANY REHEARSALS. I WAS 6 MONTHS PREGNANT"
For "Throwback Thursday," Rita Wilson tweeted a YouTube video of the post-title opening Steadicam shot of Brian De Palma's The Bonfire Of The Vanities. The shot was so complicated, De Palma had to cameo as a security guard in order to direct it (see the capture above). Here's what Wilson posted today on Twitter:
