Let's start at the beginning of the film.
In the opening scene Alan Parrish rides his bike past a statue of his ancestor, Angus Parrish. I had been to Keene once before and knew there was a statue in this square, so I assumed they just attached a fake plaque to it, I was wrong.
They built the prop statue on top of this rock fountain. Why not just use the existing one?
Here's another statue screen shot.
It almost looks like they tried to brush out the actual statue in the opening shot from the film.
This Parrish shoes ad can be seen briefly in the film and appears in the back ground of the second statue picture I posted. Here it is today.
Moving onto the stampede scenes.
Turns out Frank's Barber Shop is still there too.
So is this old coke mural
In this shot you can see the statue that's actually in the town square.
There is a church back there, the trees are just too full to see it.
While trying to solve the mystery of the second statue I came across this website. It contained a photo of the Angus Parrish statue and explained how it was made!
The statue was created and painted to resemble a weathered bronze casting upon a granite pedistal. The statue is actually a closed-cell foam carefully carved and painted to give the effect of weathered bronze. The base is plywood that was painted to match the granite in the existing fountain on Central square. The "statue" was only in place for a few days during the the fall and spring filming. After the filming was completed in Keene, the plywood base and foam statue were essentially given to the city. Both components were being stored at the Colonial Theater the last I knew.
Wow, thanks guy! Now I just need to go back to Keene and explore the storage area of the Colonial Theater.
