Scene 1

Opening Credits

  • Almost Famous begins with an homage to another classic film: To Kill a Mockingbird.
  • The camera sifts through a plethora of rock-and-roll memorabilia: photographs, vinyl records, ticket stubs, concert posters, pens from famous hotels, and more. In To Kill a Mockingbird, these artifacts are the marbles, crayons, and other miscellaneous objects that Boo Radley hides in the hollow of the tree.
  • Meanwhile, the opening credits are scrawled by hand in pencil on a notepad.
