North Coast Journal's Diary of Housewife #6212 May 2001
The North Coast Journal is featuring a very interesting cover story by Natasha Wing on its May 10 issue. Natasha worked as an extra in "The Majestic" and the article is filled with many details conveying the shoot's daily ambiance, including the hilarious incident described below, which took place at the funeral scene filmed April 10 in Ferndale:
«Bob "the minister" Wells, well known to North Coast theater goers, did an impeccable first take. The camera was moved for another shot. Jim was supposed to walk forward and place a rose on the coffin. On the second take, Kirby Washington, the guy who marks the shot, snapped the clapper, ran off camera and slipped. The bit of slapstick set Jim into giggle fits and he had a hard time walking to the coffin without laughing. At one point he climbed onto the coffin and pretended to row it like a canoe. That's when Frank called down the hill, "That first shot is looking real good right now."»
