Yesterday my wife & I spent the afternoon and evening with
Scott Frost and Valerie West (Scott's wife, my cousin). BTW,
Valerie provides some fun insight too, like ...
"When Ben Horne and the new girl slid behind the curtain
at One-Eyed Jack's Scott cracked up; he said there's
nothing but a toilet behind that curtain!"
Anyway here's as much news as I can recall before coffee
1. After we talked about a number of theories about assorted things,
not just who killed Laura, Scott said we can expect some
surprises in episode 7. It WILL bring closure to some threads
of the plot, presumably starting with who killed Laura, but
will also leave a foundation of questions to build on
2. Twin Peaks, pilot through #7, will rerun as a mini-series
3. ABC has renewed for next season. They're definitely
committed to 13 episodes; they seem to have an option
of sorts for an additional 7, but the status of additional
episodes is less clear.
4. The bearded guy in the negligee was the show's property
5. The rock-throwing scene was written by Mark Frost, and
its shooting demonstrated the actors' almost superhuman
ability to stay in character despite humorous circumstances.
This scene was shot in order, with Kyle MacLachlan
actually throwing the rocks; they didn't use a baseball
pitcher as a double. In the early parts his throwing
had been "way out out of the strike zone", and apparently
he'd been taking a lot of ribbing about his throwing accuracy.
When they came to Leo, Kyle actually nailed the bottle
on the first try. Everyone off camera cracked up and
was more or less rolling on the ground as soon as the
Meanwhile, the actors stuck to the script as directed
and went into that dead serious bit that made such a
dramatic conclusion to the scene. Finally, when Lynch
yelled "cut", they broke up and joined the delerium.
So it's not just silly Lamas that produce the challenge
of keeping a straight face.
6. The interior scenes (most of the show) were shot in a
warehouse in Van Nuys that they converted to a sound stage.
...and it looks like I'll get a chance to visit it before
moving to Sacramento next month !!!
7. Except, "Invitation to Love" was shot in one of the
modestly famous local houses built by Frank Lloyd Wright.
(Not Hollyhock house, the other famous one up in the Griffith
Park area. Somehow none of us could remember its name
BTW, David Lynch lives in a house designed by Lloyd Wright,
son of the famous architect.
