RW556 - Tom Hanks 80's Rewatch - The Money Pit


In this episode of The Tom Hanks 80's Rewatch, Cory and Eoghan sink everything they have into their discussion of The Money Pit.


Tom Hanks Timeline:

This was the first film that Tom Hanks worked with Steven Spielberg on, and the two became close friends. He would go on to also produce Joe Versus the Volcano before casting him in Saving Private Ryan in 1998. As of 2023, Hanks has appeared in 5 Spielberg directed films (Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me if You Can, The Terminal, Bridge of Spies and The Post). They also worked together on the mini series Band of Brothers, and its upcoming sequel series Masters of the Air.

Our Favourite Trivia:

Exterior shots used a relatively rundown house in Lattingtown, Long Island that had been built in 1898

The leader of the cross-dressing group Cheap Girls is Leslie West, one of the great hard-rock guitarists of the 1970's, from the band Mountain.

For the scene with the bathtub falling two floors down after being filled with water, Tom Hanks does an obnoxious laugh (which sounds like the imitation of a sea lion). This clip of him laughing is commonly used for the "Universal" back-lot tour when the tour guides joke with the visitors.

What's Up Next?

The rising star and the veteran actor butt heads in Nothing in Common.
