Small article on OUATIA shooting at Trois Rivieres Afro

I've now received the following response from Harry Halyk regarding the photo of Bobby's Restaurant:

"To the best of my knowledge and Google Maps, it was located on the SE corner of Wellington and Peel. I do remember them filming the movie and the large bridge (Brooklyn Bridge) they constructed in Old Montreal, which I believe ended up not being used in the film. Regards, Harry."

Seems a helpful response but I couldn't help wonder if my chain was being yanked a bit.

I would love to go during the Jazz or comedy festivals D&D - location scouting by day & painting the town red at night😉👍

When is that? I'd love to go.

Guys, again, fantastic job!

Jazz festival June 26th - July 5th
Comedy festival (Just For Laughs) also July - I'd be up for 2017 Afro

Chris that's fantastic - the Rue Normand building is exactly where Jimmy runs from the phone booth (on street corner) matched it with my book photo - the restaurant is just down from that building.

Chris see if you can come up with some photos for the  Trois Rivieres Boat Marina on Saint Quentin Island - I'm pretty certain this is the Montreal location where the car goes off the pier/jetty & guys end up in the river - I've seen a photo of Woods, Forsythe & Hayden in the water filming this scene and it's the same location as the Marina - the whole area has been cleaned up - no rotting old boats (that I can see) and the Jetty probably looks different now Afro

I've had a look around the area but neither Bing nor Google are particularly helpful.  The Montreal Gazette mentioned driving the car into a lake rather than a river and I wondered if this was significant. Where the St Lawrence River gets wider there seems to be an area called Lac-Saint-Pierre but again Bing and Google aren't much use. The only additional information I can come up with at present is that the bucket of the dredger near where the gang go swimming in a car has the make esco on it.

Chris is you scroll down about half way you'll see a section on old tug boat wrecks that were scattered around the Louisville area near Trois  Rivieras - unfortunately it looks like the boats were scrapped in 1996 but there is info on the location and a dredging/marine construction company Afro

Fantastic stuff LITTLE BIG MAN   Afro   Afro   Afro

From the link:

In Louiseville, QC, there was a significant collection of old tugs, dredges and barges waiting to be scrapped for years.

Leading the line up of old tugs was Capt. T.W.Morrison, followed by Jean Simard and Glenvalley

Capt. T.W.Morrison dated from 1907 and the yard of Pusey and Jones in Wilmington, DE where it was built for the US Army's Quartermaster Dept. In 1923 National Dredge+Dock Co of Quebec bought the tug and in 1939 it went to Marine Industries Ltd of Sorel. They converted it to diesel in 1957 with two V-12 GMs, totaling 590 bhp. Richelieu Dredging acquired the tug in 1972 and in 1976 it was sold to Paul-╔mile Caron of Louiseville for scrap. During its entire career the tug maintained its original US military name. However it was not until 1996 that scrapping actually took place. By then the ravages of time had taken their toll.

Jean Simard dated from 1914 when it was built by the Canadian Government Shipyard in Sorel, QC for the Minister of Marine. A that time the Ministry, precursor of the Department of Transport, maintained the navigation channels in the St.Lawrence with a large dredging fleet, including tugs. Carrying the name Deschaillons until 1960. When acquired by Marine Industries Ltd they renamed it after a member of the owners' family. It was built with twin screws, 450 shp and a 1200 gpm Merryweather pump, which could be used for firefighting, but was also employed for washing down dredges and scows.
MIL installed a 680 bhp diesel engine, and it also moved through Richelieu Dredging ownership in 1972 to P-E Caron in 1976 and was finally scrapped in 1996.


Glenvalley came from the Canadian Dredge+Dock shipyard in Kingston, ON in 1945 as one of the many Glen class tugs built for the Royal Canadian Navy. Almost immediately declared surplus, it was sold to MIL in 1946. From its layup in Shelburne, NS it sailed in May 1946 for Sorel, but made at least one more trip back for a surplus scrap tow to Sorel. Its original 400 bhp Enterprise engine may have served it to the end. It followed the path of its fleetmates tugs through Richelieu to Caron. A plan to sink it as a dive site fell through and it was broken up in 1996.

Yes.


Some magazine articles quote possible additional locations of Biarritz and Hong Kong.  Perhaps they were once considered but I've so far not found any evidence that these locations were used.  I'll post some info on Bellagio in due course.

As I recall, in STDWD, Frayling says that there was initially supposed to be a scene (it is in the long script, which has been floating around here and on A1's site) of Noodles walking around in Chinatown on the last night of Prohibition (I think he is supposed to be walking to the opium den, after seeing his friends killed). You see all these drunken partiers in the street. (I think this may have come right after the last scene in 1968, with the lights of the 1930's car with the kids partying.) Noodles was walking through the streets of Chinatown as everyone is celebrating the last night of Prohibition. Ever-ambitious, Leone wanted to film this scene in Hong Kong. I don't know if the scene was ever filmed (my guess is that it was, as this scene is in the longer script we've seen), but I am pretty certain nothing was filmed in Hong Kong. Again, everything I write here is what I recall reading in STDWD.

Bellagio


There's some confusion about this location.  One viewer thinks that a scene in the movie was filmed at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas and several websites state that the Lungolago di Bellagio Europa (Bellagio's Europa lakefront) was used for a famous scene where Noodles and Deborah walk by the ocean.


The following site seems nearer the truth with the Lungolago di Bellagio Europa (Bellagio's Europa lakefront) representing the car park adjoining Secretary Bailey's mansion.
  
http://www.viaggiare.it/it/speciali/landing/como_english/movie_locations.html

It's difficult to pinpoint the exact location but the surface of the ground and lines of trees look similar.


Bellagio and Lake Como have been used in movies for many years. Examples include

Star Wars Episode II
Casino Royale (2006)
Ocean's Twelve
Rocco and His Brothers
Hitchcock's The Pleasure Garden (1925)
Roger Corman's Frankenstein Unbound
Sidney Pollack's Bobby Deerfield
John Irvin's A Month By The Lake
Nunziante's What A Beautiful day
Taviani Brothers' All˛nsanfan
Risi's A Difficult Life
Lizzani's The Last Days Of Mussolini

I think George Clooney still has a villa in the region and he and Robert De Niro are said to be regular visitors.
