: My son is a film and photo major at Ithaca College, NY. One of his profs showed footage from LOTM (Crucible, too, my son thinks the prof thinks DDL is hot!), and the in the scene of the canoes on the lake and going over the falls, she said it was filmed nearby in New York. Is this so and where at in NY. Pax Aye and thanks!
I believe your sons's prof didn't do her homework! LOTM was filmed in beautiful North Carolina. The lake is Lake James near Marion, NC and the falls are a composite of various places, one being Linville Falls. There are places on this web site that can tell you more about the specific places where scenes were filmed. I'll leave further explanations to the NC natives and experts (Rich, Elaine?)
By the way, welcome to the board!
