I’m a little late on this one, but “Death Becomes Her” has celebrated its 30th anniversary back in July. It’s unbelievable that it’s three decades since the film’s release – and the legacy it has created ever since. I was going to write something in-depth for the anniversary until I remembered that I did just that two years ago for Streep in the ’90s. Make sure to have a look at it for more information on the filming process and the many scenes that were deleted and would have made it an altogether different film. I was also incredibly lucky to find an old segment from Entertainment Tonight, featuring cast and crew interviews that I have never seen before, as well as the Instagram page DeathBecomesHerForever, which features an abundance of behind-the-scenes stills from the film that I have also never seen before. The best way to celebrate “Death Becomes Her”, if you haven’t done this already, is to rewatch or stream it to see how it has aged (pun intended).
