RAIN MAN is based upon Princeton University's Kevin Guthrie and his brother...This is the Original Hans ZimmerSoundtrack...http://pelinordeadeje.blogspot.com/Rain Man...Academy Award Winning Movie is based upon Princeton's Peter and Kevin Guthrie. Kevin was a football star at Princeton and Peter was his autistic brother. This episode of the CBS Sunday Morning Show aired on 12/21/08 - Dustin Hoffman talks about Kevin & Peter when recalling his preparation for Rain Man. Peter Guthrie (the inspiration for Rain Man). Dustin Hoffman: 'We had prototypes that we relied on: Peter and Kevin Guthrie. They’re brothers. Kevin Guthrie was a football star at Princeton University. Peter was autistic and high functioning. We had lunch one day and were going bowling afterward because Peter loved bowling. So he was very impatient, tapping Kevin on the thigh with his finger. He said, “K-E-V-I-N, I want to go bowling.” He would spell the name when he wanted something or when he was very anxious or both. Tom Cruise and I both decided we would find a place to use that. During the lunch, I whispered to Kevin, “Does your brother know that he’s autistic?” He said, “Gee, I’ve never asked him.” And he asked his brother, and Peter’s answer is in the movie: “No. I don’t think so. Definitely not.” There’s nothing in my performance that’s invented. It was given to me. We compensated the Guthrie brothers because they were co-writers'.
