City had not had a new park of Major League in 45 years and now enjoys INCLUDING TWO NEW YANKEE STADIUM, the most expensive ever built .- New York Beautiful, majestic ‘or simply amazing. These were the comments of many baseball fans in New York City, who yesterday challenged the Friday weather to see the Yankees and the Mets of New York to test its elegant and expensive new stadiums in preseason matches a double debut in a city that had not had a new major league stadium in 45 years. In Rosemary’s Baby: A Retrospective on a special edition DVD of the film, the screenwriter and director Roman Pola’ski, the executive producer of Paramount Pictures, Robert Evans, together with the Production Designer, Richard Sylbert, recall some details about the production . In this DVD Robert Evans said that William Castle brought the first read the novel by Ira Levin and asked to buy the rights for the film adaptation even before the Randon House, the publisher of the writer, to publish the novel. As those responsible for Paramount had recognized the commercial potential of a possible adaptation, they soon agreed that William Castle, who had an excellent reputation as a producer of horror movies low-budget, could produce but not direct the film adaptation .
At the time, Robert Evans, who already knew and admired European films of Roman Pola’ski, hoping to convince him to get involved in the project, and with it his first debut in the American film production. Early Roman Polanski received from the hands of Robert Evans, and a primitive version of the first dash of Rosemary’s Baby and became fascinated. So much so I read the original novel in one night. The next morning I call to Robert Evans and told him that that script was a very interesting project for his debut as a filmmaker in America, and that not only would you direct it, but participate in drafting the final dash.

Mia Farrow, in an attempt to save his marriage, he begged the producer Robert Evans to resciendiera his contract, but the convinced to continue the project when it showed footage of the film not yet mounted. Following the launch Farrow Evans decided that I assure you that with this movie, get the Oscar nomination for best actress, something that never happened.
To interpret the role of Guy Housewood, Rosemary’s husband, Robert Redford was the first option, but for some reason, I reject the paper. Soon but I thought Jack Nicholson was finally imposed the criterion and Polanski chose to John Cassavetes.

Mia Farrow had to wear wig in almost the first half of the footage, and it was not until later, when her pregnancy lucia fictitious, that it could do with its authentic styling, which announces itself as the latest fashion of Vidal Sassoon.
