Pic of the Day: Edward Scissorhands (1990)

Behind the scenes of the making of Tim Burton's Edward Scissorhands

(Above) On the set of Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands (1990). Here’s Burton on his view of the monster as hero, from a 1992 Rolling Stone interview.

Q: Did you identify with the monster (growing up)?

A: Completely! Every kid does. They were always taking the monster and kind of prodding him and poking him, especially the (movies) of the Fifties. The way those movies were structured, the heroes were always these bland actors with no emotion. They were the suburbanites to me.
