Watch "Stand By Me" on its 25th anniversary
ReelzChannel (which I don't get) is going to broadcast "Stand By Me" on Monday, Aug. 8, the 25th anniversary of the film's release.
In honor of the Rob Reiner film based on the Stephen King novella "The Body," ReelzChannel offers you "25 Things You Didn't Know About 'Stand By Me'" on its website. My favorites are 1, 6, 15, and 25. You'll have to follow the link to find out what they are.
The major players (minus the sadly deceased River Phoenix) joined up to do a commentary for the 25th anniversary Blu-ray edition. MovieFone has an excellent oral history of the film, for those of us without a Blu-ray machine.
