Steak Knives, Beady Eyes, and Tiny Little Arms (A Portrait of T. rex as a Scavenger)

  • John R. Horner (a1)

Extract

I'll begin with the obvious question, how many people saw the movie “Jurassic Park”? How many people believed it? In the movie, “Jurassic Park”, there were basically two stars. Tyrannosaurus rex was one of them and the Velociraptors (or Deinonychus, or whatever they happened to be) were the others. What you might also know is that I was an advisor on the movie. All I was able to do was basically tell them when the dinosaurs were walking right and tell Laura Dern how to pronounce her words.

Any time the dinosaurs were going to do something, any time Steven Spielberg wanted to have the dinosaurs do something in the movie, he would ask me if I thought they could do that. If I said yes or no, he would take that as an answer. But if I said maybe, he would just do whatever he wanted. That's fiction.
