Film’s Great Inanimate Objects

Film’s Great Inanimate Objects: Lloyd Dobler’s boombox from Say Anything

Read my ode to one of the great inanimate objects in cinema history, Lloyd Dobler’s boombox that blasted out Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” from the 80’s classic Say Anything. Discover the genesis of the famous scene, what song was actually playing during the shoot and the resting place for that old plastic rectangular device that came to symbolize the desperate, youthful, and suppressed voice yearning to be heard for a generation of young Americans.
