In this interview, Tim and Dwier explore the behind the scenes notes and insights that make Field of Dreams so special. Everything from working with the cast, the cast and crew bowling team, filming in Dyersville, and nearly 30 years of hindsight on one of the greatest sports movies of all time. Perhaps the most revealing moment is when Dwier shares what it was like for the cast to watch the film for the first time and fully realizing how special the film really was.
Dwier Brown is also an author. His 2014 book If You Build It… A Book About Fathers, Fate and Field of Dreams tells the story of his relationship with his own father and the stories that Field of Dreams fans have shared with him over the last few decades. The character John Kinsella has taken on a life of its own for Dwier Brown. In addition to being approached by fans in public places, including a hot spring, Dwier’s own father passed away just a month before he went to Iowa to play a father coming back from the dead to play catch with his son.
