Beetlejuice album description:Harry Belafonte, who performed pair of songs here (Day-O and Jump In Line (Shake, Shake Senora)) is not only a singer, but also an actor, a writer of songs, producer, activist and humanitarian. Lately he became a politician acting in Obama’s administration.
Who would doubt that such a brilliantly dark and funny movie, entertaining and fabulous, full of irony and stunning characters, would be filmed by someone other than Tim Burton. This happened back in 1988, but since then it is considered one of the best motion pictures of Halloween’s theme and for same parties. It is often referred to, and in general, it certainly served a springboard for the career of this genius, in many aspects, director.
No less excellent actors starring in it, many of whom have made or continue their starry careers: Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Michael Keeton, Catherine O'Hara, Jeffrey Jones, Winona Ryder (how amazingly beautiful she was young!). Harry Belafonte also acted as a voice of The Balladeer, but has not been specified in the credits.
Ingenious Danny Elfman wrote the rest – instrumental – support, which is the vast majority. It is defiant, the same as movie (e.g., Beetle-Snake).
With a budget of USD 15 mil, the film grossed in domestic box USD 73.7 million. The international distribution it did not have. The list of awards includes 1 Oscar’s nomination and 1 win, in 1988 (for the best makeup). We are totally agree with this Oscar, for the best make-up, when it comes to the protagonist – a playful demon named Beetlejuice, acted by Michael Keeton. Not only that. He played the same character, which is at one stand with Joker, but spiced him with own infernal jokes, being himself the character from the underworld. A pity that they did not give him the Oscar for the best performance of hell’s spoony!
