So my second Cather encounter was in Johnstown, the town in which they filmed the CBS movie version of O' Pioneers.
As you can tell from the sign, the star has faded on this claim to fame, and the town has receded back into its former anonymity, although there are still signs of its former brush with fame. Due to the vagaries and vicissitudes that define the circumstances provided to a photographer, I passed the town in the morning and was lucky enough to find the sun shining on the more interesting side of the street, of which this was all of it.
There was a bit more, but I wasn't there for it, but you get the idea. Unfortunately, the only operating business other than the post office was a bar on the shaded side of the street that didn't look like part of a movie set. But for closure, I do need to get back. Interestingly, there no longer seemed to be any effort to capitalize on their fame in terms of tee shirt shops, etc.
