There were some distinctly Hollywood moments when Grand Rapids’ first major film production of the modern era landed in the city for a month-long shoot.
Although you couldn’t ask the star of "The Steam Experiment," Val Kilmer, for an autograph, you could have potentially shopped for eggs at the neighborhood Meijer store with actor Eric Roberts, made him breakfast in your apartment and helped read lines for his role in the film. The movie’s director, Philippe Martinez, was quick to offer a cigar, while actor Armand Assante wanted some specific listening music. His locally chosen personal assistant, Rebekah Fuller from the Compass Film Academy, found his tunes at Best Buy.
