Footnotes

  • Starring Gregory Peck and Lee Remick, the film was released in the UK and USA in June 1976, and was both a critical and commercial success at the time. It is reported as grossing over $4million in its opening weekend, against a production budget of under $3million. Cited as one of the best films of that year, it is also now regarded as one of the best ever made in the horror genre. It featured several scenes which were deemed, by the standards of the day, to be truly shocking - that of Damien's nanny hanging herself at his birthday party and the slow-motion decapitation of the character of photographer Keith Jennnings.

    The film has garnered a number of awards, including the Academy Award® for Best Original Score by Jerry Goldsmith. Billie Whitelaw was nominated for a BAFTA for Best Supporting Actress and won the Evening Standard Best Actress award, and Harvey Stephens received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Acting Debut - Male for his portrayal of the young Antichrist.

    Provenance: Harvey Stephens.
