SHOW NOTES:
They didn't market Stand by Me as a Stephen King film. In 1986 a period piece drama didn't fit with King's history of films, including axe murderers, ghosts, zombies, vampires, and killer semis. Few would have thought this 50's coming-of-age nostalgia piece was from King's short story "The Body." Yet the movie was a smash hit, nominated for Golden Globe and Academy Awards. How does this movie hold up thirty years later, playing to people other than Baby Boomers? Stand by Arnie, Stuart, and Jakob to find out!
