Tom Selleck was one of the stars of a classic 80s hit directed by Leonard Nimoy entitled Three Men and a Baby. The other stars were Steve Guttenberg and Ted Danson. The movie about three grown men bachelors living together in NYC when a baby is suddenly dropped on their doorstep was a novel idea at the time and audiences loved it. Watching three men without any women around trying to take care of a baby was highly entertaining and comical. But if you fast forward to today, one of the things that’s highly remembered about the film is a scene where people believe a ghost appeared in the movie.
It’s a scene that’s shot in a living room and you see a figure behind a curtain. Last night on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Tom Selleck put any ghost rumors to bed. The rumor has it that a young boy actually died on the set of Three Men and a Baby and that’s the “ghost” you see in the film. Apparently a 9 year old boy committed suicide in the Three Men and a Baby apartment. The reality is that the film was shot on a sound stage. Here’s the picture:
If you look on the left side you clearly see a figure. Turns out the the figure was a cut out figure of Ted Danson’s self involved character. Selleck always thought it was a full size poster. Here’s the full clip from the show: Can you believe this movie is coming up on 30 years old?
