Quick Fire Questions - This Week We Have E.T's Dee Wallace

dee wallace interview

This week we have a very special guest.  None other than Dee Wallace.

Dee played Elliot's mother in Steven Spielberg's 1982 classic E.T. The Extra Terrestrial.  Now an author, healer and a radio show host, Dee can also be found on the convention circuit throughout the world.  On top of all this Dee is also a sought after public speaker. Dee has spoken at numerous national and international venues including the Love and Harmony Forum in Tokyo, Japan; The Dillion Lecture Series, Unity Temple, Cornerstone Foundation, and the Kansas Film Commission in Kansas; The Sally Johnson Studio in New York; Spiritworks; The Sierra Madre Womenís Club; Energetic Healing seminars throughout England; and her own healing and teaching seminars throughout the United States.

As it says on Dee's website she is today's new renaissance woman.

Let's start the questions.

You're stuck in a swamp on Dagobah. What one movie, TV show, album and book would you take?
My movie would be Gone With the Wind, TV, Homeland, Music, Neil Diamond's Best Hits, and book would be Ramtha: The White Book.

If you could invite any three people (alive or not, fictitious or not) to a dinner party, who would they be?
A musician, a philosopher, and a comedienne.

What is your favourite John Williams soundtrack? (I think we may know the answer to this one.)
Well Duh.  E.T. (Had to be.)

If you were invisible for a day what would be the first thing you would do?
Run around whispering in everyone's ears "You are loved. You are fabulous."

When was the last time you cried?
Quite recently.  Yesterday in fact.

What is your biggest fear?
Being trapped in a body that doesn't work, or a body that does, with a mind that doesn't.

What was the most embarrassing moment of your life?
I had to stand up in 7th grade to do a violin solo and my skirt fell off.

Excluding search engines, what three website would you choose if no other websites were available?
Which ever ones my daughter tells me to visit.  I'm totally tech unsavvy.

Do you have any guilty pleasures?
Actually I love dancing to sixty's music. I can't get enough of it.

What are you looking forward to the most in the next six months?
I'm looking forward to my Hawaii trip with my daughter and Christmas with family.

What is your most treasured possession?
My daughter and my health.

What is your biggest regret?
That I didn't give up certain things that really didn't matter.

What are you most proud of?
My healing work, and how it is helping the world.  And my ability to always keep creating myself in new and meaningful ways.

What is your favourite Spielberg movie?  (I think we may know the answer to this one too.)
Again. Duh. E.T.  And not because I'm in it.

You can keep up to date on Dee Wallace on her very informative website and where you can find Dee's books including:

Bright Light is an autobiographical tale of how the actor’s craft became a spiritual journey for her, and how she applied those lessons to her life. It is also a story of Everyman: how we lose our light and steps we can take to reclaim it. For Dee Wallace has discovered, like her co-star E.T., that the journey home comes from following the heart’s lead.

Thanks Dee for taking the time to answer our questions and hope to see you this weekend at London Film And Comic Con.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Explaining That "Weird" Cut In Poltergeist. Read The Missing Scene

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
