Lightner wrote in the CD's liner notes that the cover is his interpretation of Frank Holmes ' original design for the Beach Boys' Smile album.
Lightner also wrote that Jimmy A was responsible for directing Silent Planet Records to Lightner to do the cover work for the album. How Jimmy A and Lightner became acquaintances is unknown but Lightner is known to have other ties to musicians on the album as well; he and Jason Harrod , who plays on the album see below , both attended Wheaton College Illinois at the same time in the early s.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. After taking the train to Los Angeles since he disliked flying , Friedkin had the playwright and Burstyn do the scene where Chris tells Karras she thinks Regan might be possessed.
Afterwards, he had Burstyn interview Miller about his life with the camera focusing on him from over her shoulder, and finally asked Miller to say Mass as if for the first time. Burstyn felt that Miller was too short for the part, unlike her boyfriend at the time, whom Friedkin had auditioned but passed on. The director felt the test was promising but, after viewing the footage the next morning, realized Miller's "dark good looks, haunted eyes, quiet intensity, and low, compassionate voice", qualities which to him evoked John Garfield , were exactly what the part needed.
The studio bought out Keach's contract. The film's supporting roles were more quickly cast. After Blatty showed Friedkin a photograph of Gerald Lankester Harding , his inspiration for Father Merrin, Friedkin immediately thought of Max von Sydow for the part; he accepted it as soon as he finished reading the script.
While out seeing a play starring an actor who had been recommended to them for the film, Blatty and Friedkin ran into Lee J. Cobb , which led to his casting as Lt. Greek actor Titos Vandis was cast in the role of Father Karras's uncle. The question of whether or not such a young actress, even a talented one, could carry the film on her shoulders was an issue from the beginning.
Film directors considered for the project were skeptical. The first actresses considered for the part were names known to the public. Pamelyn Ferdin , a veteran of science fiction and supernatural drama, was a candidate for the role of Regan, but was ultimately turned down because her career thus far had made her too familiar to the public.
Friedkin had started to interview young women as old as 16 who looked young enough to play Regan, but was not finding any who he thought could. Pictures ' casting department and then with Friedkin.
Both mother and daughter impressed the director. Elinore was not a typical stage mother , and Linda's credits were primarily in modeling; she was mainly interested in showing and riding horses around her Westport, Connecticut , home. Cute but not beautiful. A normal, happy twelve-year-old girl", Friedkin later recalled.
With Linda having demonstrated the personal qualities Friedkin was looking for, he then went on to see whether she could handle the material. He asked if she knew what The Exorcist was about; she told him she had read the book. Friedkin then asked Linda if she knew what masturbation meant. She was quickly cast as Regan after tests with Burstyn; Friedkin realized he needed to keep that level of spontaneity on set.
Friedkin originally intended to use Blair's voice, electronically deepened and roughened, for the demon's dialogue. Although Friedkin felt this worked fine in some places, he felt scenes with the demon confronting the two priests lacked the dramatic power required and selected legendary radio actress Mercedes McCambridge , an experienced voice actress, to provide the demon's voice.
For the crucifix scene, Linda Blair's own voice was recorded as she yelled out all the demon dialog in a rage. The result was then rerecorded in a slowed-down mode to achieve a very low bass.
The very-low-bass result was then rerecorded at such a speed as to achieve a raging alto male voice. Warners had approached Arthur Penn , Stanley Kubrick , and Mike Nichols to direct, all of whom turned the project down. Principal photography for The Exorcist began on August 21, Friedkin went to extraordinary lengths manipulating the actors, reminiscent of the old Hollywood directing style, to get the genuine reactions he wanted.
Yanked violently around in harnesses, both Blair and Burstyn suffered back injuries and their painful screams were included in the film. After O'Malley confirmed to Friedkin that he trusted the director, Friedkin slapped him hard across the face to generate a deeply solemn reaction for the last rites scene; this offended the many Catholic crew members on the set. He also fired blanks  without warning on the set to elicit shock from Jason Miller for a take, and told Miller that the pea soup would hit him in the chest rather than the face in the projectile vomiting scene, resulting in his disgusted reaction.
Lastly, he had Regan's bedroom set built inside a freezer so that the actors' breath could be visible on camera, which required the crew to wear cold weather gear. The film's opening sequences were filmed in and near the city of Mosul , Iraq. The archaeological dig site seen at the film's beginning is the actual site of ancient Hatra , south of Mosul.
The stairs are set back in a small parking lot facing the intersection. Because the house from which Karras falls is set back slightly from the stairs, the film crew constructed an extension with a false front to the house in order to film the scene.
Although the film is set in Washington, D. It was chilled so much that a thin layer of snow fell onto the set one humid morning. The scenes involving Regan's medical tests were filmed at New York University Medical Center and were performed by actual medical staff that normally carried out the procedures.
The scene in which Father Karras listens to the tapes of Regan's dialogue was filmed in the basement of Keating Hall at Fordham University in the Bronx. King , S. King's room was photographed by production staff after a visit by Blatty, a Georgetown graduate, and Friedkin. Upon returning to New York, every element of King's room, including posters and books, was recreated for the set, including a poster of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin , S.
Merrin was loosely based. One scene was filmed in The Tombs, a student hangout across from the steps that was founded by a Blatty classmate. Father Merrin's arrival scene was filmed on Max von Sydow 's first day of work. The scene where the elderly priest steps out of a cab and stands in front of the MacNeil residence, silhouetted in a misty streetlamp's glow and staring up at a beam of light from a bedroom window, is one of the most famous scenes in the movie.
Stuntwoman Ann Miles performed the spider-walk scene in November Friedkin deleted this scene against Blatty's objection just prior to the premiere, as he judged the scene as appearing too early in the film's plot.
In the book, the spider-walk is more muted, consisting of Regan following Sharon around near the floor and flicking a snakelike tongue at her ankles. A take of this version of the scene was filmed but went unused. However, a different take showing Regan with blood flowing from her mouth was inserted into the Director's Cut of the film. The Exorcist contained a number of special effects, engineered by makeup artist Dick Smith.
In one scene from the film, Max von Sydow is actually wearing more makeup than the possessed girl Linda Blair. This was because director Friedkin wanted some very detailed facial close-ups. When this film was made, von Sydow was 44, though he was made up to look The Exorcist was also at the center of controversy due to its alleged use of subliminal imagery introduced as special effects during the production of the film.
Wilson Bryan Key wrote a whole chapter on the film in his book Media Sexploitation alleging repeated use of subliminal and semi-subliminal imagery and sound effects. Key observed the use of the Pazuzu face which Key mistakenly assumed was Jason Miller in death mask makeup, instead of actress Eileen Dietz and claimed that the safety padding on the bedposts were shaped to cast phallic shadows on the wall and that a skull face is superimposed into one of Father Merrin's breath clouds.
Key also wrote much about the sound design, identifying the use of pig squeals, for instance, and elaborating on his opinion of the subliminal intent of it all. In an interview from the same issue, Friedkin explained, "I saw subliminal cuts in a number of films before I ever put them in The Exorcist , and I thought it was a very effective storytelling device The subliminal editing in The Exorcist was done for dramatic effect—to create, achieve, and sustain a kind of dreamlike state.
If you can see it, it's not subliminal. The editing of the title sequence was the first major project for the film title designer Dan Perri. As a result of the success of The Exorcist , Perri went on to design opening titles for a number of major films including Taxi Driver , Star Wars , and Gangs of New York Lalo Schifrin 's working score was rejected by Friedkin. Schifrin had written six minutes of music for the initial film trailer but audiences were reportedly too scared by its combination of sights and sounds.
Warner Bros. It has been claimed Schifrin later used the music written for The Exorcist for The Amityville Horror ,  but he has denied this in interviews. In the soundtrack liner notes for his film, Sorcerer , Friedkin said that if he had heard the music of Tangerine Dream earlier, then he would have had them score The Exorcist.
Instead, he used modern classical compositions, including portions of the Cello Concerto No. The music was heard only during scene transitions. What is now considered the "Theme from The Exorcist", i. In a restored and remastered soundtrack was released by Warner Bros. That same year, the Japanese version of the original soundtrack LP did not include the Schifrin pieces but did include the main theme from Tubular Bells by Mike Oldfield , and the movement titled Night of the Electric Insects from George Crumb 's string quartet Black Angels.
Waxwork Records released the score in on two different variations of gram vinyl, "Pazuzu" with clear and black smoke and "Exorcism" that featured blue and black smoke. The record was re-mastered from the original tapes; it included liner notes from Friedkin with art by Justin Erickson from Phantom City Creative. Lyric writer Lefteris Papadopoulos has admitted that a few years later when he was in financial difficulties he asked for some compensation for the intellectual rights of the song.
Part of Hans Werner Henze 's composition Fantasia for Strings is played over the closing credits. Upon its December 26, , release, the film received mixed reviews from critics, "ranging from 'classic' to 'claptrap'". A limited special edition box set was released in for the film's 25th anniversary; it was limited to 50, copies, with available copies circulating around the Internet. The extended edition was later re-released on DVD and released on Blu-ray with slight alterations under the new label "Extended Director's Cut" on October 5, Since it was a horror film that had gone well over budget and did not have any major stars in the lead roles, Warner did not have high expectations for The Exorcist.
It did not preview the film for critics and booked its initial release for only 30 screens in 24 theaters,  mostly in large cities. None of the theaters were in African American neighborhoods such as South Central Los Angeles since the studio did not expect black people to take much interest in the film; after the theater in predominantly white Westwood showing the film was overwhelmed with moviegoers from South Central it was quickly booked into theaters in that neighborhood.
If you want to be shaken—and I found out, while the picture was going, that that's what I wanted—then The Exorcist will scare the hell out of you".
Murphy of Variety noted that it was "an expert telling of a supernatural horror story The climactic sequences assault the senses and the intellect with pure cinematic terror". Director Friedkin's film will be profoundly disturbing to all audiences, especially the more sensitive and those who tend to 'live' the movies they see Suffice it to say, there has never been anything like this on the screen before".
Are people so numb they need movies of this intensity in order to feel anything at all? He wrote, "That it received an R rating and not the X is stupefying". It establishes a new low for grotesque special effects The Exorcist succeeds on one level as an effectively excruciating entertainment, but on another, deeper level it is a thoroughly evil film".
DeMille minus that gentleman's wit and ability to tell a story The site's critical consensus reads: " The Exorcist rides its supernatural theme to magical effect, with remarkable special effects and an eerie atmosphere, resulting in one of the scariest films of all time". The angiography scene, in which a needle is inserted into Regan's neck and spurts blood, a procedure Friedkin suggests was actually performed on camera,  has come in for some criticism.
By contrast, medical professionals have praised the scene for its accuracy in depicting the procedure. It is also of historical interest in the field, as around the time of the film's release radiologists had begun to stop using the carotid artery for the puncture as they do in the film, in favor of a more distant artery. It had already been criticized for its indirect censorship : as many as a third of the films submitted to it had had to be recut after being rated X , meaning no minors could be admitted.
Since many theaters would not show such films, and newspapers would not run ads for them, the X rating greatly limited a non-pornographic film's commercial prospects. While Friedkin wanted more blood and gore in The Exorcist than had been in any Hollywood film previously, he also needed the film to have an R rating children admitted only with an adult to reach a large audience. Before release, Aaron Stern, the head of the MPAA ratings board, decided to watch the film himself before the rest of the board.
He then called Friedkin and said that since The Exorcist was "an important film", he would allow it to receive an R rating without any cuts. Some critics, both anticipating and reacting to reports of the film's effect on children who might be or had been taken to see it, questioned the R rating. While he had praised the film, Roy Meacham, a critic for Metromedia television stations based in Washington, D. Nevertheless, some had, and he had heard of one girl being taken from the theater in an ambulance.
In Washington, the film drew strong interest as well since it was a rare film set in the area that did not involve government activity. He suggested that the ratings board had somehow yielded to pressure from Warners not to give the film an X rating, which would have likely limited its economic prospects, and was skeptical of MPAA head Jack Valenti 's claims that since the film had no sex or nudity, it could receive an R.
After a week in Washington's theaters, Meacham recalled, authorities cited the crucifix scene to invoke a local ordinance that forbid minors from seeing any scenes with sexual content even where the actors were fully clothed; police warned theaters that staff would be arrested if any minors were admitted to The Exorcist. He feared that, as a result, communities across the country would feel it necessary to pass their own, perhaps more restrictive, laws regarding the content of movies that could be shown in their jurisdictions: "For if the movie industry cannot provide safeguards for minors, authorities will have to".
Two communities, Boston and Hattiesburg, Mississippi , attempted to prevent the film from being shown outright in their jurisdictions. A court in the former city blocked the ban, saying the film did not meet the U. Supreme Court 's standard of obscenity. California decision which laid down a new standard for obscenity.
