Trivia

For years, Peter Dinklage had indicated in interviews that a Hervé Villechaize biopic was a long-time passion project of him. Like Dinklage, Villechaize had a form of dwarfism, and his short stature made it hard for him to find work without being typecast; something Dinklage was finally able to overcome due to the wide range of the artistic qualities that express his work as a great actor that he is, which also includes his contribution to the huge success of Game of Thrones (2011).

Goofs

Hervé chases Camille in the front yard as she runs into the house. We then see him on a horse as he fires a gun into the air. This appears to be a goof, as it's never explained where the horse came from or how Hervé got onto it. However, it's really just sloppy editing. It's implied that there is a bit of a time jump here of a few minutes or longer. During which time, Herve got a horse from the 1.5 acre ranch that he and Camille lived on, which was known to have numerous animals, including horses. See more »

I didn't know anything about Herve and watched Fantasy Island once in a while.. It was an interesting show that dealt with all aspects of life.. Being able to accomplish what Herve did with the challenges he had in life was truly remarkable!! Peter Dinkage was remarkable as his portrayal of Herve life... The movie reveals what can happen to someone when money and popularity is quickly injected into someone life. Kept me on edge the whole time!!
