Spacey's Tribute To Bobby Darin
25 August 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This was a "so-so" behind-the-scenes bonus feature, nothing that great but not boring, either. I think the most interesting statement might have been the one made near the end by Kevin Spacey. He gave a really nice tribute to Bobby Darin with the following statement:

"My hope (with this film) is that we will introduce Bobby Darin to a whole generation to whom he isn't known. Quite frankly, with all those guys that were in that 'Rat Pack' and the revival with them in these last few years, Bobby has been the forgotten one. And that's a real shame because of all of them, he was probably - next to Sammy Davis, Jr. - the greatest nightclub entertainer we've ever had."

Well, I can't comment except some guy named Frank Sinatra was a pretty good entertainer, too, but I think Spacey was talking about the whole package because Darrin could dance as well as sing.

Spacey could dance, too, and had been in musicals from the young age of 14 to his early 20s, so he wasn't out of his element singing and dancing in this film. .

The movie was filmed entirely in Berlin, Germany, because they had an enormous soundstage, for one thing. A pleasant surprise was find a huge park next door where they could film the other scenes. so, they did the whole movie within a 10-mile radius of Berlin. The hard part was doing the summertime outdoor scenes that were supposedly taking place in Italy. The problem was the cold spell which plummeted temperatures to five degrees. Kate Bosworth said her lips were blue, she was so cold, wearing nothing but "these little Sandra Dee summer outfits."

This movie was a five-year project for Spacey, who idolized Darin. The latter's longtime manager told him "over my dead body will anyone sing in place of Bobby" but Spacey won him over. He, and the Darin family, did all they go do to help.
