20 Great Movies That Were Behind-The-Scenes Nightmares

List Rules
Vote up the troubled movies that were totally worth it.

Even in the best circumstances, making movies is a painstaking process. There are filmmakers who practically put the lives of their crew members on the line to get the perfect shot. These great movies that were behind-the-scenes nightmares were hopefully worth all the pain and suffering. 

Films crews stricken with malaria. A teeth-cracking on-set fistfight between a writer and director. Broken bones, freezing cold water, and a potential on-set murder - none of this could stop these movie productions.

Sometimes there's a price to pay to achieve greatness. Maybe the misery wasn't worth the end product for some of these films - that's for you to decide. Vote up the troubled movies that you think were totally worth it.
