My Dad lives in Peru Vermont and his wife was the on set medical aid for all the actors' needs.
Turns out Diane Keaton wasn't so maternal in those days and would do things like leave the baby on the bed and then walk away in scenes, and had to be reminded that she could roll off!
So many of our friends had extras parts on the movie, Nancy Kirkpatrick who owned the Hapgood store was featured selling over the counter. The Cow that Diane milks in the movie was our own family pet, Appleblossom, who got paid in bales of hay for her cameo role.
Whenever I get homesick I just play the movie and it feels like I am there. It really captures the essence of rural vermont. even the quirky townsfolk like the plumber guy are so true of our little town.
