Strange Invaders Locations
Locations Manager(s): Michael Brownstone
Under their watchful eye, the following special places were used for filming "Strange Invaders":
The village was actually Claremont, Ontario, in North Pickering. The original opening scene showed the front door of the house we had bought there in 1981. That part was clipped in making the video edition. My (ex) wife, her father from England and myself participated as extras. My father-in-law had been a movie extra in British film while going to medical school in the late 1930s. I wonder what they would have thought if they found out he was actually an Air Commodore in the RAF, an honorary doctor to the Queen and head of eye medicine for the RAF. Unfortunately, the segments we were jointly in ended up on the clipping floor. My claim to fame is a distant shot of me as the gas jockey checking the readings on the gas pumps early on in the film. I eventually participated in half a dozen TV and Film shows over the next ten years. Fun while it lasted. [Thanks to Bob Carswell]

LX is our radical new locations feature that we've been beavering away on.. For years!
Each location will have it's own page with then/now pictures, maps, StreetView, discovery story and the most detailed explanations on how the location was used. Most importantly, the locations will have a status that shows whether they are verified correct and by whom. We are working with the actual locations managers or other crew where possible. The whole thing will be very interactive and you will, of course, be able to update everything.
