FLICKS

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene towards the end of the movie where the mother/aunt is holding onto Henry (Macaulay Culkin) and Mark (Elijah Wood), as they are dangling over the cliff, if you look closely at her holding onto Mark's hand, you can see a wire extending from under the sleeve of his coat to his aunt's.

Trivia: For the treehouse sequence, young Macaulay Culkin and Elijah Wood made the 30-foot climb up the tree themselves, with no safety nets or wires. However, the tree was mostly surrounded (everything outside of the camera frame) with elaborate scaffolding, sufficient to support all the camera crew and equipment, so the boys were always within arm's reach of an adult.
