Shot On Site - Ecto-1 Rejects A Parking Ticket

PermalinkBy Matthew Jordan on Jun. 27, 2014 at 12:00 PM , Categories: Ghostbusters 1, Filming Locations , Tags: shot-on-site
Welcome to Spook Central's special Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Celebration. Today is the fourth "Shot On Site" article for the month. Today I'll be covering a Ghostbusters deleted scene location, which also happens to be the place many promotional shots and two of the montage magazine cover images were taken. It was found and ID'ed by myself. Before starting, I want it known that this article is in memory of Charles Anderson, whose unfortunate death made this ID much easier to do. I'll talk more about him at the end of the article.

Making Ghostbusters Birthday Present

PermalinkBy Paul Rudoff on Jun. 25, 2014 at 12:00 PM , Categories: Personal, Books
Hey, everyone! Today's my birthday. I won't say how old I am, but if you do the math, you'll figure it out soon enough. As I been salvaging the home movie videotapes that Hurricane Sandy ruined, I've been finding long-forgotten family memories. One of the tapes contained my 20th birthday celebration. It was for this birthday that I received the Making Ghostbusters book from my aunt and uncle in California. Now you, too, can watch my elation as I opened up one of the best presents I ever received in my life. This video was recorded on June 26, 1997, the day after my birthday, when the package was received. That's my mother in the background, and my sister is seen briefly in the lower left corner. My father was operating the camera, so you only hear his voice.

Okay, so I didn't freak out like Brandon and Rachel Kuzma did when they received a Nintendo 64 for Christmas, but I'd say I was still rather "orgasmic" at receiving the holy book of Ghostbusters for my birthday.

There were lots of bits and bobs from various magazines that were not worthy of being made into one of the full-blown book and magazine PDFs, so I put those into the Magazine Scraps image gallery. There are a few things in here that aren't Ghostbusters related, but I thought they'd be fun to include.

Finally, because I didn't have any other place to put this on the site, here's a Bill Murray article that appeared in the December 24, 2004 edition of Life magazine - which was distributed in various newspapers across the United States. Click on the cover thumbnail to download the PDF. Thanks to Matthew Jordan for help with fixing up the page images.

GHOSTBUSTERS. 1984 "I guess I'm proudest of what we did for the world of fashion....Danny [Aykroyd] was going to write Ghostbusters for himself and John [Belushi], I'm sure. But after John died, he sent me a script that was 47 pages, and it was really funny. I was living in New York, and I remember finishing it at eleven at night. I called him the next day. The deal was put together so fast -- in about 90 minutes they had a director and a caterer."

Ghostbusters II Electronic Press Kit & Deleted Scene Images

PermalinkBy Paul Rudoff on Jun. 17, 2014 at 10:02 PM , Categories: Ghostbusters 1, Ghostbusters 2
Welcome to Spook Central's special Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Celebration. Today was a big multimedia update for the site. I added 65 still photos to the bottom of the Ghostbusters II Electronic Press Kit page. This should be more than enough to show what's on the EPK.

Pics of Dana in the courtroom before the trial were added to the Ghostbusters II Deleted Scenes page. I really thought I had these on the site already. I also updated/added some images on these Ghostbusters II deleted scenes pages: Ghost Jogger's Lap Time, Television Commercial, Possessed Ray Driving, Louis Is Proton Gun Crazy For Slimer, Louis' Cousin, Sherman Tully, and Sizing Up The Museum Situation.

On the Ghostbusters Deleted Scenes page I added a photo of Janine talking with Egon while he's working on some equipment, and I updated the second and seventh photos on the Pulling Up To Fort Detmerring deleted scene page.

Finally, I present to you the deleted ending to issue #3 of the Now Comics "Ghostbusters II" comic book adaptation, which represents the film's original ending. These four files are courtesy of the late, great Doreen Mulman who once had them on her now-defunct website, the Ghostbusters Fan Forum. According to the GBFF, these were sent to Doreen's RGB Fan Club in 1989. Doreen's friend Alex Newborn uploaded scans of his own copies to GBFans, along with a scan of the letter he received from comic writer James Van Hise. According to Mr. Van Hise, "Although my adaptation of GBII (part 3 enclosed) included the end sequence, Columbia made Now Comics cut it out at the last minute because it wasn't in the movie! Wonder where they were when we did part 2 with the Ectomobile crash scene? So although part 3 in the comic ends on page 26, the art was completely finished for the rest, which is included here in the form it was intended to be published in, although it never will be published, sad to say, so those last 4 pages will never see print." (Copies of Alex's files are also hosted at EctoContainment.)
