Adventures in Babysitting

Today's #OneShotWed comes from Adventures in Babysitting, a 1987 teen comedy set and filmed almost entirely in and around Chicago.

Here, Vincent D'Onofrio plays Dawson, the owner of a Chicago garage who—with his long blond hair and sledgehammer—resembles Sara's favorite superhero, Thor.

In the original script, eight-year-old Sara was obsessed with She-Ra and He-Man. But the director, Chris Columbus, had never heard of the characters, so he changed them. Read more about that switch here.
