New old photos from behind the scenes at Twin Peaks
August 14, 2010 3:43 AM   Subscribe

Paula K. Shimatsu-u, who worked behind the scenes at Twin Peaks, has a book coming out with previously unpublished photos from on and off the set. Wired has a gallery that boasts, among other delights, Michael Horse reading a book beside a deer's head, and Sheryl Lee with Sherilyn Fenn wearing, respectively, a lovely bobble cap and a very fetching jumper.

How do you pronounce "Shimatsu-u"? With a glottal stop?

Because that's awesome.

Yeah, I can't get past that extra "u".

The hyphen should be pronounced backwards by a midget.

I can't help but notice Sherilyn Fenn and I are still not married to each other. When did my life go so wrong?

Did you try tying the knot with your tongue?

Ahh, Ray Wise being wonderfully creepy even through a still photo.

We should get one of those "internet users funded movie projects" going on and get him to play Mister E in a film version of the DC comic book character.

Separated at birth?

That deer's head is the centerpiece of one of my favorite Twin Peaks scenes ever. Something about the bank teller's delivery of "Oh, it fell down" kills me every time.

I'd say you dodged a bullet there. She seemed bitter and craggily on the Gold Box DVD interview.

I'm preeeeety sure that this one is from Wild At Heart.

Dur, there are captions that say this. My bad.

Since she writes "Shimatsu-U." with a period, short for "Shimatsu-Utsushigawa" I guess, you would pronounce the hyphen the same way you pronounce it in "Blutarski-Inverness," say.

Alternately you could pronounce it like you were speaking backwards and your speech was then being played back forwards in a dream-world where owls fly behind menacing curtains.

I was going to post this, but then realised Wired's claim of "never before seen" was pretty wrong, since most of those are publicity shots that were widely used when the series was on the air.

The collection is absolutely worth it for this photo of Ray Wise as Leland Palmer losing his shit.

Much more exciting to me are photos by Richard Beymer (Ben Horne) mostly taken during production on the final episode of the series. And some footage he took from a Twin Peaks fan festival he attended.

crossoverman: Yes, Beymer's is a great collection. I notice it was blogged here too.
