    Ed Asner, Christian Slater and Morgan Freeman? A movie set in (and actually filmed in) Huntingburg? Anyone?

    The first season of "Saved by the Bell" was set in Indy, but the show was called "Good Morning, Miss Bliss" then.

    Forgot about "Winning" with Paul Newman - about the Indy 500.

    And my brother-in-law reminded me that "Brian's Song" was mostly shot in Rensselaer, IN - when he (my bnl) was at St. Joe's.

    "Friendly Persuasion" with Gary Cooper was based on a Jessamyn West novel, set in Indiana. West was from Indiana, and also wrote a book about the Fall Creek Massacre.

    Which is based on the Pulitzer Prize winning novel by Indianapolis native Booth Tarkington, whose former home was the site of this year's Decorator's Showhouse which my wife and I toured this spring. Nice house.

    I love Breaking Away.

    When I lived in Loogootee, when I played baseball in high school we played Jasper in Huntingburg where parts of "A League of Their Own" was filmed.

    At the time I was a freshman, so I thought it was cool to drink out of the same water fountain in the dugout that Tom Hanks did.

    It's a really nice ballpark, and we enjoyed playing there. They have a lot of posters and memorabilia inside the concourses. The best part about League Stadium is that it was only built in 1996, but looks decades older than it is. Most of the grandstands area came from the Fulton County Stadium after Turner Field in Atlanta was built. Truly a classy ballpark.

    "Madison" was filmed in Indiana... in Madison and surrounding areas.

    An American Crime with Ellen Page takes place in Indianapolis. Supposedly the real-world events happened a stone's throw away from my ex's father's work.

    I saw part of the Mel Gibson movie "What Women Want" this morning. At one point he is dancing around his apartment (before trying on the pantyhose and wonderbra). On one wall was a round decorative piece in yellow and white with the words Indiana...Eli...Penobscot...and Skidrow...and 92 on it. The piece has nothing to do with the movie other than as a decoration in his apartment.

    IIRC the original tv series The Fugitive was originally set in Indiana.

    I believe that "Blue Chips" movie with Shaq and Penny had some scenes set in Indiana. Believe they even had a Bird cameo in French Lick.
    The gym at Frankfort's HS was used to shoot all the home game scenes. They used to have the "team" picture on the wall, and the school name and mascot painted on the wall as well, but when I was there this past March I noticed it's no longer there.

    I've never seen it, but the opening of that show has a quick clip of a big Indian. that's Chief Godfrey in Montpelier, which is the town closest to where I grew up.
    Also the map that is shown is a reversed aerial map of Muncie.

    In the Blues Brothers movie Matt Guitar Murphy mentions 'the cabbage roll at the Terre Haute Federal Pen'.

    Francis Farmer? She ended up doing a stint on Channel 6 hostessing a late afternoon movie program.



    Back in the late 70's early 80's they were filming a movie in Greenfield about a small town sheriff. I cannot for the life of me remember who the actor was....I wanna say Forrest Tucker but no, it wasn't him. At one point the sheriff was supposed to be at the hospital to see someone who was dying. My dad was there following a massive heart attack and they used his monitor and actual EKG in the movie.

    I've never saw the movie (swear on my life), but my GF tells me that Justin Long's (the guy who represents Apple in the Apple Vs. PC commercials) character Valentine's Day is from Muncie. She said they continually crack jokes on him about being a hick, and being out of the loop.

    Speaking of What Women Want, there's a very brief shot of him watching an NBA game, and it's taken from a 2000 Lakers/Pacers game.

    There's also a part where he's watching a Lakers-Pacers game and Croshere (I believe) makes a shot and he reacts to it.
