Chris Ogle: "The two beach shots are
taken in Fiji on Monuriki island where the movie
Cast Away was filmed. To Douglas' delight he
discovered that his cell phone worked on this
uninhabited island in the middle of the
Pacific... so he promptly called his assistant
Sophie Astin in London at some ungodly hour in
the night, to celebrate the fact..."
"We subsequently discovered that
cell access was apparently in Tom Hanks contract
and thereafter Douglas bemoaned the fact that
Tom Hanks had yet to be persuaded to do a road
movie on the 101 Freeway in California, a
highway notorious for cell phone dropouts.
A bite at Milliways? No, the cafeteria at
the Monterey Aquarium.
