What was Pennywise really?

Pennywise (the dancing clown) was a character in Stephen King's IT -a book, later a film. He first appears in 1740, removing 300 people from a Derry township. It was destroyed in 1985 (apparently) by the second Ritual of Chud.

The book implies that just as there was a creator of things, and the Turtle, so there was also a destroyer of things, as there is always a balance. This is what Pennywise is.

What part did Stephen King play in the movie IT?

I don't believe he had a cameo appearance in IT (1990). First of all, he is not listed on the imdb (Internet Movie Database) entry for the movie, in the "Full Cast & Crew" section. Second, there is a website (see the Related Link below) which lists all the cameos he has done, and IT is not listed on that page. And third, I've seen IT several times myself; the last time was just a few months ago, so I'm fairly certain I would remember if he was in it.

What does the tree house symbolize in the movie stand by me by Stephen King?

Stephen King did not actually write the film; instead, the film was loosely based on his short story "The Body". This story, incidentally, was inspired by King's real life experience of seeing a friend hit and killed by a train when King was very young.

If the treehouse can be said to symbolize anything, perhaps it would be the idyllic comfort and safety of childhood in a small rural town. King's stories often treat childhood as the most sacred, vital part of the human life cycle, though his young heros frequently grow up in extremely difficult circumstances, and they almost invariably find themselves faced with horrific, murderous enemies; in most of these stories, at least some of these children die.

How many words was in Stephen King longest book and what is it called?

This depends on your definition of book. I would argue that The Dark Tower Series can be considered on Book (story), which is seven volumes and counting which has about 3700+ pages. However, the previous answer was incorrect the longest single volume story (book) written by King would be his uncut version of The Stand not It.

Is Stephen King the author Jewish?

No. But he's NOT Catholic either. Stephen King was raised in the Methodist faith. But the rest of the stuff you wrote is pretty accurate. He "does not regularly attend Mass". And Mr. King does not consider "himself to be religious, and not in the sense that he attends church and preachers."

No. Stephen King is Catholic, but does not regularly attend Mass. King considers himself to be religious, but not in the sense that he attends church and preaches.
