Song From the OST
When Louis Tully mingles with his party guests (commenting on the price of the salmon, and so on), the scene is one continuous shot, and almost entirely improvised.
Almost none of the scenes were filmed as scripted, most had at least one ad-lib. Most of Bill Murray’s lines are ad-libs.
Harold Ramis only intended to write the film. He decided to play Dr. Egon Spengler after he felt he was the best person suited for the role.
Sigourney Weaver floating is an actual physical effect. The actress was put in a full body cast and attached to a post hidden in the curtains. According to the DVD commentary, the effect came from Ivan Reitman’s Broadway experience.
This is Columbia Pictures’ highest grossing film of all time when adjusted for inflation.
Michael Keaton turned down both the roles of Dr. Peter Venkman and Dr. Egon Spengler
