Hundreds of people (and sometimes millions of dollars) have been involved in the production, marketing, and distribution of the final product.  The sheer scale of most movie productions leads to many places where things can go wrong, big changes can be made, and personalities can dramatically clash. Film historians spend years digging deep into every aspect of these rich stories. Cast and crew members share wacky tales from behind the scenes.
