The Truman Show (1998) He's the star of the show--but he doesn't know. Truman Burbank is a man whose life is a nonstop TV show. Truman doesn't realize that his quaint hometown is a giant studio set run by a visionary producer/director/creator, that folks living and working there are Hollywood actors, that even his incessantly bubbly wife is a contract player. Gradually, Truman gets wise. And what he does about his discovery will have you laughing, crying and cheering.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Truman: The early bird gathers no moss! The rolling stone catches the worm!
  • Christof: We accept the reality of the world with which we are presented.
  • Marlon: Where the hell's Fiji? Near Florida? Truman: [pointing to golf ball] See here? Marlon: Yeah. Truman: This is us... [guides finger halfway around ball] Truman: and all the way around here... FIJI. You can't get any further away before you start coming back.
  • Christof: Cue the sun!
  • [repeated line] Truman: Good morning, and in case I don't see ya, good afternoon, good evening, and good night!
Movie Trivia:
  • Dennis Hopper was originally cast as Christof, but walked off the set after his first day. Ed Harris replaced him and went on to win the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor and an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
  • The band uniforms that Truman was wearing belonged to the Blue Star Regiment of Riverside's North High School.
  • People on the set were forbidden from uttering phrases from Jim Carrey's past "silly" movies.
  • When Truman goes to visit Marlon at work, the outside view of the shop is a brief homage to "The Prisoner" (1967). Look for the red and white awnings, and the cart (presumably Marlon's) with the single word "Goodies" printed in the Village font.
  • Harry Shearer plays Mike Michaelson, the host of the TV call-in show who interviews Christof. In Edtv (1999), which is also about a man whose life is broadcast live 24 hours a day on television, he plays a similar character, the moderator of a TV show on which panelists discuss the phenomenon of EdTV.
