Field of Dreams : "BOOKS"


When Ray is taking Terrance back to his apartment, the word "BOOKS" is reflected from a lit sign onto the windshield of the van as it passed by. I've always wondered if this was from an actual store, or it was purposely placed there...possibly because of Terrance being an author. If it's a real store, I have always wanted to go visit it!


I just watched the director's commentary and that scene was filmed in a warehouse with random lights just put around the van. The director said someone asked him about that books sign and he had no idea what the guy was talking about, so it wasn't Robinson's idea to put it in. Maybe one of the crew put it there or it might be one of those random things that just happen.


Interesting. I'll have to listen to that. Thanks.
