Dana Olsen


I recommend you listen to the Dana Olsen interview on the 20th Anniversary link

I'm so pleased to have something qualified by Dana. I said maaaany years ago (and since) that I think one of the main, major influences on this movie was 'Rear Window' for many reasons. But when I suggested this waaaaay back hardly anyone had heard of Rear Window so there wasn't much discussion about it, but to me, who has seen it a hundred times, it was so obvious.

The interview is also revealing about other things. One of which really interested me. I remember again yeeeeeeeears ago someone on an older board (late 90s) saying there were multiple endings. Including one where Tom is killed, Tom is driven away by the Klopeks, one where the Klopeks are innocent - and it's all true.

Fantastic!

The name Mayfield Place comes from Leave It To Beaver. Desperate Housewives is filmed on the Burbs street. One of the houses is where the Klopeks' house stood.

Re: Dana Olsen


I'm so glad that we have so many new background information about our favorite movie. I also recommend to listen to the stories Joe Dante has to tell. I'm curious what the others are saying as well. I watched the (very short) youtube interview with Robert Picardo, the garbageman. It's interesting to hear that turning the garbageman in one of these spiritual new age guys was his idea. He didn't even believe that there is a fanbase for this movie out there. Small and probably minor information but I absorb them like a sponge.

Re: Dana Olsen


Me too

Re: the Garbies...Dick Miller...I spotted him on the opening scenes of Damnation Alley (1977). Not a speaking part but he was sitting watching the Russians launching their missiles against the US

He was also Monster Joe in Pulp Fiction but his part was cut.

Re: Dana Olsen


Funny how his name is being censored here.

Joe Dante frequently worked with Miller, he almost appeared in all of his movies.

I liked his reaction about the fanbase - he didn't seem to expect a following 20 years later. I wonder how that scene would have gone without his idea ... he really made it a great scene

If he knew that we know that they know that we know!

It would have been great if the ones who made these interviews (obviously some private fans and no professional journalists or something like this) had mentioned our page.

"Are you aware of the online web forum Mayfield Place Mr. Dante?"

"No, I'm not, what is that?"

"It's a place where some Burbs fans from all around the world meet and post about their favorite movie, The Burbs."

"Really? 25 years after?"

"Yes, you should check it out."

"Thanks, I will."

(*dream, dream*)

Do you mean you've never watched the alternate ending? emoticon

It's on my DVD but it has also been uploaded on youtube:
