New this week Trivia: The photos of Jamie on the mantle on the fireplace at the Sullivan home are real childhood photos of Mandy Moore.
Trivia: The "Walk to Remember" is not a walk with both Landon and Jamie. It is Jamie's walk down the aisle. Some people think it is the walk down the pier when he says he loves her and some think it's their first walk up to the school past all of Landon's friends a scene or two later. This is not only stated explicitly in the book but it is also meant to be clear at the end when Landon goes to see Jamie's father and his "thoughts" are something like "...but the vision of Jamie walking towards me will be with me forever." On the DVD commentaries they discussed how they added that because people didn't know why it was called A Walk to Remember or just which walk was supposed to be so memorable. In the book Jamie is much more ill and can barely make it down the aisle, but "it was in every way, a walk to remember."
Trivia: Before filming the date scene where Landon puts a tattoo on Jamie, there had an unexpected 5 hour wait so some of the cast went out to eat and a few ordered drinks. When they filmed the scene, Shane was slightly tipsy.
Trivia: After the play, on the front porch of Jamie's house, Landon arrives and gives her a pink sweater. At one point in this scene, you can see the red lights of a car pass from left to right behind Jamie. That is a real police car in the middle of a real car chase! You can hear more about this on the commentary with Shane West, Mandy Moore, and director Adam Shankman on the DVD.
Trivia: This movie was filmed in only 39 days, despite the fact that they only had Mandy Moore for 10 hours a day because she was a minor.
Trivia: When Jamie is being wheeled out of the hospital, the nurse who is wheeling her is also the director, Adam Shankman.
Trivia: As someone who lives near Beaufort, NC, I thought it was funny that hardly any of the scenery in the movie looks like anything in Beaufort. The only truly recognizable thing is near the end, when Landon is driving back to Beaufort, there is a shot of a sign that says Beaufort, with lots of other signs on it. That is the only thing I recognized in the whole movie.
