|Subject: Film Locations|
Hi, everyone -
I like this thread!
While we did not set out to find it, we accidentally found ourselves in Pennan (on the NW coast of Scotland, near Gardenstown, Portnockie, Dufftown, Cullen, Findochty and other major centers.)
As we walked along the town's one street, we started looking for motorcycles - sure enough, the village (somewhat enhanced for the movies) was one of the locations for Local Hero, a lovely and fanciful movie if ever there was one.
If anyone out there is a fan, I must say that the movie's phone booth was an addition - but we saw the corner it occupied.
My other favorite bit of film location recognition is a scene in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels that takes place on the waterfront of Villefranche-sur-Mer, my favorite town on the Cote d'Azur.
Happy holidays, all...
Julie (in Seattle, where it's clear and chilly.)
