Looper on “Stand by Me” pie eating contest

Looper has a post about filming the pie eating contest in Stand by Me with a focus on the vomiting scene.

Without a doubt, it’s the most special effects-heavy scene in all of Stand By Me — long before CGI became the standard. So how was it done? According to director Rob Reiner and Hogan actor Andy Lindberg in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, it took a bit of trial and error to get the projectile vomit to look right (via Screen Rant). The repulsive-looking stuff was made of large-curd cottage cheese mixed with blueberry pie filling, and that secret formula was kept throughout the process. The real problem came in figuring out how to shoot the “vomit” from the tube taped to the side of Lindberg’s face.
