I remember seeing that cornball movie when it first came out. The only redeeming factors it had were Ed Harris and the CBX. I thought it was funny years later when watching "The Abyss" and remembering this was the same actor. We all have to start somewhere right?

Check the two You Tube clues Greg. There's the story. I remember when they were filming the movie. Back then they used the Outdoor Life Lodge as their main filming location. Romero also used parts of Natrona, Natrona Heights, Fawn Twp, and Buffalo Twp. In 1981 the Allegheny Valley Expressway (Rt 28) was still unfinished between Burtner Rd and Creighton so the partially finished road surfaces in what became to be known as "the missing link" were also used for some scenes.

Here are some more clues
This place opened 1887. At its peak, the plant employed more than 3,500 ethnically diverse workers.
Oh - it also rates a Pa historical marker.


Should be #1 on your Google search now!

Why is it not surprising that this tag is about 4 miles from the poster's home?

p.s., this is the only thing I could come up with:



Let me know when the tag moves more then 10 miles East of Pittsburgh.
