The Facts on "Peacemaker"

Looking for Nicole Kidman's long, red, curly hair? Don't look too hard. The actress has changed her 'do to brown, straight and shoulder length, probably to make her look more like a nuclear physicist. These aren't the START talks. Shelley Komarov, the costume designer, negotiated with Pavel Grachev, the former Russian Defense Minister in order to borrow authentic Russian uniforms for the film. After filming is completed, the uniforms will be returned to the Russian military. True blue. A U.S. military advisor is a member of the crew, to ensure an authentic portrayal of American military personnel.

Now that's good PR. The film has an international cast, with actors in major roles hailing from the U.S., Australia, Germany, Russia, Romania and Croatia, not to mention the many local actors in minor roles. Now that's impressive. Branko Lustig, the movie's producer, won an Oscar for producing "Schindler's List" with Steven Spielberg.

Mimi Leder, the director, is the first woman to direct a high-action film. Cool. Where's the scrap heap? Three BMW's were destroyed during filming. The actor that Peter the doorman at the Hotel Forum would like to see: Charlie Chaplin.
