The Journey of August King and Songcatcher were both very good movies and the scenery in both was breath taking. The stories were about life in this area many years ago. The Journey of August King took place back before the civil war and Songcatcher took place just after the turn of the century.

Wait a second, what about the movie Robin Williams made here? Part of it was filmed on the Elk Mountain Scenic Hwy. and some of it was filmed on Coleman Ave. and other locations around here. He played the doctor from W. Virginia.

That was Patch Adams. Also part of Hannible was filmed at the Biltmore Estate. Also, My Fellow Americans and Richie Rich. There was one with Don Knotts and Tim Conway.

There was Swan Lake with Grace Kelly that was filmed at the Biltmore House. My dad owned an electric company and was part of the electrical crew for that movie.

You don't have to worry about getting a screen shot, unless they do a series on "Wild Kingdom".

Did anyone see the movie back around Christmas, Papa's Angels. Gary Carden wrote the book and movie. He grew up in Sylva with my mom. Anyone know where the movie was filmed. Just wondered if it was filmed in Western NC.

Don't know where it was filmed. Probably like Cold Mountain. Even though it took place here in Western NC, they had to go to Europe to film it, said it was cheaper. Go figure.

Who? The woman from church. Now Sarge don't get the cart before the mule. Tell us all about her, but not the video part. That would be way to much information. lol

Sure was...was not a WNC film...it was filmed on the Chattooga River, even though it begins in Jackson Co. and flows into GA. If I am not mistaken, it was the venue for several events in the 1996 Summer Olympics.
