Murder By Numbers

Happy Sunday friends!  What are your plans today?  I might watch a movie or two! One of my favorite films is Murder By Numbers starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Gosling.  I don’t know why I can watch this film over and over again, but I can.  I found some great trivia on the film and thought I’d share.  Have you seen it?  What did you think?

–Henry Bean, who also directed Ryan Gosling in The Believer, did several uncredited re-writes on this film.


–In one scene, the camera pans briefly across a cinema that is showing The Bitter Tea of General Yen.  That film was directed by Frank Capra, whose grandson, Frank Capra III is the first assistant director of this film.

–The characters Richard Haywood and Justin Pendleton are loosely based on real life murderers Richard Loeb and Nathan Leopold.
–The old lodge on the bluff was constructed especially for the film and was torn down after filming was completed.  The interior shots were filmed on set.
–Richard’s car, a mustang, is the same type of car driven by Steve McQueen in Bullitt.  Ryan Gosling suggested that the car be used, as he is a fan of McQueen.
–The scene near the end of the film where Gosling licks Sandra Bullock’s face was not scripted.  After a few takes, Gosling asked Bullock if it would be okay if he added it in to prove his character’s sick nature.
–Ryan Gosling threw up as he filmed the murder scenes.
–The high school scenes were supposed to be filmed at San Luis Obispo High, but the Superintendent wouldn’t allow them to film after reading the script.

 Some of you have asked me about my #shakeology #shakes lately and why I love them. I have literally no sweet cravings (which is huge for me), more energy, and am getting tons of veggies, vitamins, and calcium among other things every day. I honestly look forward to my shake every morning more than my morning coffee now! This month you can try a #supersampler pack to try all the flavors and see which one you love. It's only $29.95 for 6! Let me know if you want to order!
