    You're good at this photography lark, aren't you, Coley?

    Interestingly, I didn't think your close-up would be of something obvious like Rushmore!


    I see now that it's Lincoln!



    Can't have been Glenn Miller, 'cos there aren't any glasses!

    Don't get the James Stewart connection though!

    of course it is, Jimmy Stewart was in other Hitchcock movies

    Reading about there was only the car park scene filmed at Rushmore, all the rest was mock ups including the cafe scene. They took pics ever 10 ft of the monument to build the mock ups, they found there was metal rings at the top of each head so lowered photographers in baskets to get the pictures. Hitchcock also said he wanted to make the impossible look possible in that it was actually impossible for two people to climb down the face of Rushmore. I must watch it sometime.

    It is a good film, and watchable even still today.

    The iconic scene was the one in the cornfields with the crop duster plane.
