So the famous Bowie knife design has been around longer than old James would have had us believe. James Bowie did fight at the Alamo, however, he was mostly laid up with pneumonia at the time. In fact, I think he was in his bed when the Mexicans entered the fort and dispatched all the fighters. Sorry about the second picture, you may have to click on that one.

  • I'm not sure that the town is FAMOUS for this, but it is the location where the movie The Witches of Eastwick was shot. A few stories about that... When Jack Nicholson goes running out the front door of Cher's store, takes a right and goes up a hill, he ends up on the town Common with a little duck pond and a big white church in the middle. In reality, if you took a right out of that building (Cards and Shards Gift Shop) you are actually heading in the opposite direction from the town Common. When they filmed that scene, the sun was in the wrong place for them to show him going left towards the Common. I watched them film the scene where he comes around a corner in the black Mercedes and runs off the road as he is approaching a stone bridge. They had an iron rail set up on the side of the road that was hidden by shrubbery, that the car would ride up on to make it appear to "bounce" off the rocks. They shot that scene 15 times before they had it right. Every time they shot the scene, it would rip the side off the Mercedes and they would tow it back to the Sandy Beach parking lot, where they had a mobile auto-body shop that would fix the car up to like-new condition in about 20 minutes. When Jack goes into the hardware store, all of the goods in the store were rented by the movie company from my brother's tackle shop. In one scene in the store, you can see a hat on a shelf behind the proprietor that says Trask Tackle on it. (You have to have a good quality VCR with freeze-frame to actually read the hat!)
