More locations


I took a drive down to Chester, CT today where most of this movie was filmed. The train depot is still there although just one small building survives. Coincidencely the Essex valley steam railroad runs a scenic steam train right past here! The engine is even numbered 97. Not the original steam engine, but a similar one. The original was scrapped after the movie was made.

A drive thru Chester will show you many more recogisable buildings. Although the Caldwell General store was fictional, the building is still there. I walked right where Harry Foster Malone ran to his Limousine at the end of the movie. There is a liquor store at the spot where the bandstand was at the end of the movie. How did zoning let that slip thru?

The road where Jane and the kids walk past the Dam is not far on North Main meets Liberty street. The road has been improved but the spot is easily recognisable.

David I did the same thing in the 80's, and was amazed at how much stuff is still there...

Thanks for the photos and the google maps link on the other thread, I loved them!

Thank you for these excellent directions to the locations.
Wish somebody would do the same for the Hitchcock movie "The Trouble with Harry"!
I found most locations in Craftsbury, VT,, but not the hill on which the dead body of Harry shows up over and over again.

reply

Are you sure the hill even exists? From my memory, those scenes looked like dioramas in a museum (sets on a soundstage).

reply

It looked very real to me, but maybe you are right and it was filmed in the studio.
