JCM - Thanks for the link.  That was a terrific interview. Elizabeth Banks is lovely to watch and listen to even if a person happens to be a straight female...such a smart, passionate, professional woman.  She obviously had fun playing Melinda.  A have a feeling that they're a LOT alike.

Just passing it along that there is a spectacular article in American Cinematographer (July 2015). If you are obsessed with this film, as I am, it is a must read and own. Also, there are several on set photos that I have yet to see anywhere else. Including one of Paul Dano (as 'Brian Past') in bed at the Bel-Air house circa early 1970s. Just stunning stuff.  Apparently from a scene that does not appear in the finished film.

I really appreciate the gifts that people like Robert Yeoman (the director of photography) posses. There's an art to getting a specific look and this film pulls off multiple looks for the different periods so well. He and Bill Pohlad deserve a ton of accolades of this film, I hope they are remembered next spring.

You and me both, JCM.  That film deserves nominations in a number of areas.

Sure, I'll be happy to share a pdf. Hopefully this isn't against the rules of the board. If it is, I'll be happy to take down my post.

Great piece, JCM. Thanks for sharing! Maybe a bit too technical in nature for the casual fan, but having a son who went to film school in SoCal (Chapman University in Orange), and who now works in TV in LA, I found it to be fascinating, to see what goes into bringing the visual aspects of a film to life. Very cool!

After that great American Cinematographer article and some of the pictures, I got to thinking. I have been meaning to post this photo for quite some time. Came across awhile back, this is the actor (he is uncredited in the finished film) that plays Brian Wilson Present. He is twice glimpsed in bed for about 4-5 seconds, symbolizing Brian in the 1970s. You never actually see his face so it's unclear who the actor is while watching the film, but this is indeed him.

This photo is taken from IMDb, from the actors' (Jeff Holman is his name) page, and appears to be a selfie, from on set. [smile]

The film recently opened in Japan and I was cruising through the Japanese Facebook site for the film (I know, I need a life).. but I saw two cool still photos that I hadn't seen elsewhere.

The first one looks like a scene in the screenplay where Marilyn is asleep in bed and Brian is listening to "Be My Baby" over and over again on his headphones.

This one is a little harder to identify but there is a scene in the screenplay where Brian is watching the news and sees news about a fire and says "LA's burning!" and has kind of a freak out because he thinks the Fire Tapes caused the fire.

Hoping these and more are included among the deleted scenes.

JCM,

Thank you for posting the Japanese photos.

I will be riding the bus for 3 hours on August 16th to go to see L&M in Kobe.

I have been enjoying your other posts as well.

Thank you.

You're welcome! I hope those sequences, which are not in the released version of the film, are included as deleted scenes on home video.

I hope you enjoy the film as much as I do. [thumb]

Hi - This is the first time I have ever blogged about anything.  Just want to tell someone, everyone, that I saw the film Love and Mercy in the UK last month and I loved it.  I was spellbound when I wasn't crying.  I always have loved the music of Brian Wilson but I love and appreciate it even more now.  I honestly think my life is so much richer for his amazing and honest music.  Thank you so much, Brian. Lyn x
