|Someone lost their marbles on her windowsill.|
|Sherry, but not Percy Bysshe.|
|Can you understand a light among the trees?|
|The eyes have it.|
|No one smiles if you cross their stiles.|
- See the Whitby Hand of Glory and Hand of Glories that you can buy!
- The procession tune. See this for more info: http://twm.wikia.com/wiki/The_procession
- Not only is Paul Giovanni in one of those shots on the cliffs, Anthony Shaffer is in one too! Check out this shot: https://screenmusings.org/movie/dvd/The-Wicker-Man/pages/The-Wicker-Man-710.htm
See the man with the green turtleneck behind the woman in the blue top who is behind Howie? That’s Shaffer! His only cameo in the film. The associate music director, Gary Carpenter, dressed up in drag to play the organ in the church scene. You can see a behind the scene shot of that here: http://twm.wikia.com/wiki/Behind_the_scenes_-_still_pictures?file=Bts_church_gary_and_robin.jpg
Hardy’s minister cameo, as far as I know, didn’t make any cuts nor did Gary’s.
- 'Summer is icummin in' is only heard when they set the Wicker Man on fire, not during the procession or at any other time. It’s the oldest song in the English language. More info on its use here: http://twm.wikia.com/wiki/Summer_is_icummin_in
- Check out these pictures of a commune that re-created their own Wicker Man. It wasn’t until recently that I found out they their “man” wasn’t one of them made for the film. http://www.davidstooke.co.uk/green-lane-photo-archive.html
