Featured Animal Action

Live animal action is limited to the one scene where the pigeon flies up to the balloon and sits on the ledge. This was an insert shot filmed on stage before a blue screen. For this scene the trainer simply released the bird who walked A to B. Sea monsters are also seen. These, of course, were not real and were inserted in post-production.
