“THE WALL”: BEHIND THE SCENES PICTURES FROM PINK FLOYD’S HARROWING CINEMATIC ACID TRIP


0

But as I often do, I’ve once again digressed away from the point of this post which is to share with you some remarkable behind-the-scenes photos from The Wall that I had never seen before as well as an interesting tidbit about the film’s star Bob Geldof. Apparently Geldof (who’s allegedly the leader of a new liberal political “party” in England called the “Sneerers” in case you were wondering what he’s currently up to) couldn’t swim and was also massively phobic when it came to blood. So when it came time to film the scene where Pink is bleeding out in a swimming pool, the reluctant Geldof was placed on top of a see-through plastic body mold so he could appear to be floating in the pool among a cloud of his blood for the sequence. Yikes. Many of the images in this post can be found in a must-own book for any Floyd fan by David Appleby, Pink Floyd – Behind The Wall.

  1. Pardon me, I love that album. But I love anything Waters. I relate as well I went to Germany instead of Nam. Was a medic and neuropsych tech . I saw and dealt with a lot of blood. That album even without cid hit home. Thank you all I now know more on one of my favorite musical persona, Roger Waters.
