Did You Know?


The apparel of the four boys is the same throughout the entire movie, except for Teddy. From the beginning to the tree house scene, he is wearing a nice shirt with a design on it. Then he is seen wearing a green shirt, from the part where they all meet up to go on the journey, to the end of the movie. Gordie, Chris, and Vern, on the other hand, are all wearing the same clothes throughout the entire movie. See more »


Gordie describes Lard-Ass as being "really fat; weighing close to 180." 180 pounds really isn't that heavy. When Lard-Ass is seen, it is obvious he weighs well over 300 pounds. See more »


[first lines]
The Writer: [voiceover] I was 12 going on 13 the first time I saw a dead human being. It happened in the summer of 1959-a long time ago, but only if you measure in terms of years. I was living in a small town in Oregon called Castle Rock. There were only twelve hundred and eighty-one people. But to me, it was the whole world.
