"Hello Dolly" filmed in Cold Spring when I was a youngster. Then "Nobody's Fool" Beacon. "Super Troopers" in Hopewell and Beacon.
We were visiting Montreal a few years back and watched a major movie filming scenes on the front steps of a large government building. They had made some staging changes to it so that it looked like a government building in NYC. I cannot for the life of me remember what the movie was, or who the star was, but they kept shooting the scene of people running down the steps over and over.
I watched some of the filming of The World According To Garp starring Robin Williams which was filmed in Millbrook at the Millbrook School.
During the 1990's when Nobody's Fool was being filmed. I saw some of the filming, camera crews and actors in Fishkill.
My son and I were extras in the "The War of the Worlds" when they filmed in Athens, NY. We were in the scene where the "people" are trying to board a ferry and escape. We met Mr. Spielberg and Mr. Cruise. It was pretty cool.
The Kremlin Letter was filmed in Patterson, New York in 1969. Richard Boone and Patrick O'Neal were there and I have a picture of me with them. Actually my Father-in-law and Brother-in-law were in the movie as pallbearers. My Father-in-law owned and was the funeral director of the local funeral home in Patterson.
Watched Woody Allen's "The Purple Rose of Cairo" being filmed in Piermont while eating at the Turning Point.
We were science students in Syracuse when Slap Shot was being filmed. Played hooky from lab work to sit in the sports stadium trying to get a look a Paul Newman's blue eyes.
I was an extra in "The Road to Wellville", parts of which were filmed at the Mohonk Mountain House. We sang in the Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner scenes, and actually ate dinner near Anthony Hopkins! Matthew Broderick fell into a bowl of cornflakes in another scene we watched filming.
The Night They Raided Minskys 1968 & The Valley of The Dolls 1967.
Yes, I got to watch some of the filming for the movie Toy Story.
Nobody's Fool in the 90s when the filmed in the City of Beacon and the Village of Fishkill
