    Hazzard Square

    The image quality of the YouTube video isn't great, but I think the truck driven by Norman in 'Murder in Peyton Place' was the higher spec Ranger XLT. Even the very clean Uncle Jesse truck which appeared in the backlot scenes of 'Luke's Love Story' (below) never looked as good. The picture above is from the first page of this thread. The truck is noticeably cleaner and less dented than the one used for filming at the Golden Oak Ranch. BTW. The California trucks weren't identical to the Georgia one. Just like Daisy's car, they changed the model when they moved production. In the first episodes, Jesse had a 1968 F-100 Stepside (below). For the rest of the run, they kept close to the 1973 F-100, but there were slight variations such as bed length. As an aside, Christopher Connelly, who played Norman Harrington in 'Murder in Peyton Place', was the bad guy in an episode of 'CHiPs' which I watched last weekend. With the help of his sister-in-law, he was trying to kill Jon and Ponch, who he blamed for the death of his brother. It was the season 4 episode 'New Guy in Town' for anyone who wants to check it out.

    IMDb doesn't list any filming locations, and nor does Wikipedia, so I took a look on YouTube. This must be the TV movie you're remembering, because Midwest Street (aka. Hazzard Square) is used throughout. There's the houses, the stores, the courthouse and the gazebo. I didn't see the garage/livery stables, but I only skimmed through. The scene below is at just over six and a half minutes in. Not only is the guy driving something that looks like a very clean version of Uncle Jesse's pickup, he's also picking up Linda from the bank. Linda just happens to be played by Catherine Bach! For anyone who's interested, the whole movie is on YouTube:

    Bring a fast car with you Spike. Preferably black and no chrome. Make sure it's unlicensed and unregistered and no fingerprints on it. A big trunk would be nice but you could always put some of those gallon jugs in the back seat. Make sure it has a good suspension system so the jugs don't get rattled and your back and neck don't hurt when you jump the creek. Hobie doesn't want you to get hurt because this kind of job doesn't have worker's compensation. Your fixin' to enter the buttermilk *wink wink* delivery industry.

    That'd be great but we'll be happy in a quiet, safe neighborhood at this point. Anywhere without drama. We're going to see if we can get a mortgage loan from our bank and go from there and if that don't work out try and find a house to rent in a good neighborhood nearby.

    Just to back up my previous post, here's part of the square in Waxahachie. There's a corner store, a movie theater and a couple of buildings with arched windows and fancy brickwork near the roof - sound familiar?

    I think it's been used in lots of things. I think Hoss did something about that awhile ago. How ya been MonacoMan? ( I almost typed MM but that's Meadowmufn's initials) I could have been cuffed and stuffed for a mistake like that.

    And don't forget the Buttermilk 5.00 after that. Run 5 laps around the barn after drinking a quart of buttermilk. If nobody makes it without getting sick the person who gets the farthest wins....it will probably be Enos again.

    Check the disc for any fingerprints or dust. If you have an air can around use open the tray of your DVD player and blow it out a few seconds. Could also be your DVD player is getting worn out too. Have family or friends try out the disc and if it works ok in their player's then you know it's your player that has issues.

    Bernard Fox, who played Iggins in 'Southern Comforts', was in an episode of MASH that I saw a week or two ago. He played an English major who Hawkeye originally disliked, but then saw he just did things differently. At the end, Hawkeye advises him not to give tea to soldiers with belly wounds as it causes peritonitis. His reply is, "I'll take it up to higher authorities, but I don't know. If it was anything but tea..." (all in his very English voice)

    Southern Comfurts....season 2 -- The good news is this is the last episode on my bad disc. The bad news is that it is the worst one. It's odd because I thought this one was fine earlier. If anybody gets a chance to check it out maybe you could comment. I only got to see the first 20 minutes. -- Jesse's second cousin twice removed, Holly Comfurt and her two kids Lori and John Henry sell their farm for a quarter million dollars. Boss meets her at the Duke farm and starts scheming to sell her some land as an investment but it is really worthless swamp land. Holly showers the Dukes with gifts and is planning on buying a rooming house in Savannah. Their Rolls Royce breaks down and while it is at Cooter's he lends them a car. Lori puts a suitcase in the trunk but when they walked away a drunk stole the car. Since Holly doesn't trust banks she had left the quarter million in the suitcase.......and eventually the Dukes save the day -- When Bo and Luke looked under the hood of the Rolls Bo said "Uh, it ain't American" -- When Jesse was negotiating the land deal and the guy said a quarter million dollars, Jesse passed out (thankfully he was already squatting low). It was pretty funny to see his feet sticking in the air! --season 3 next....Carnival of Thrills!

    I thought it was just a bit sad at the last when it showed Henry ( He'll always be Otis the town drunk from Mayberry to me..!) almost crying looking out of the window of the van. I loved the scene with Jesse riding Maudeen the Mule while talking on a walkie talkie....Jesse that is...Maudeen still hasn't figured out how to use one. lol...that's a good one!

    Yeah, they used more than one year/model of several “Dukes” character’s cars...Uncle Jesse’s truck did use different years, starting with the 68–which you never really saw up close or much of. They then switched to a 73, and I believe eventually a 77. Daisy started out with a 74 Plymouth Roadrunner, but eventually they switched to a 71 Plymouth Satellite—with the Roadrunner paint scheme. Then she had a new 80 Jeep, but a couple later year models were eventually used as well. IMCDb has a pretty in depth “Dukes” page & good listing of the vehicles used on the show. Christopher Connelly played Norman Harrington for the entire original Peyton Place run, and in the reunions. He did star in some other movies and guest-starred on several other TV shows later on. Cool about the CHiPs episode—don’t remember that one, I’ll have to check it out sometime! Sadly he died in 1988 of lung cancer...lifelong smoker.

    That' right! But we don't take out any taxes on your pay either...so there's that! That comment about black with no chrome is no joke around here....but that's because if you drive out to the Hickory Valley area of the county, that's where all the Minnonites live and they only drive dark green or dark black cars, with no chrome on them!

    Adding to my above post...out of curiosity, I wonder where the first P.P. reunion movie (“Murder in Peyton Place” 1977) was filmed? Im on my cellphone at the moment and I can’t seem to find filming locations for it on IMDB. I’m sure it was probably not the “Dukes” Warner Bros. set as this was a couple years before “Dukes”...but I’d be interested to know if possible. It’s probably on YouTube as well, but it’s late and I’m going to bed, lol!

    I love and enjoy a lot of different shows from all decades, mostly crime/cop/mystery, but some action adventure ones too, as well as prime time dramas. So Dallas, Knots Landing, Falcon Crest, Dynasty, etc...are ones I like. I know, I’m weird! I’m currently going through the original Peyton Place series for the first time, and the set I got also includes the reunion movies (there were 2) & the original theatrical movies (based on the original novels). Anyway, I’ve actually not seen the reunion movie “Next Generation” yet myself...I only quickly scanned the DVD it’s on when I first got it. And I swear the town square, gazebo, court house, etc...looked just like the Warner Bros. set of Hazzard (not the Dukes original Georgia locations). But, it perhaps is not, and they fully used the Texas location...as I have read they filmed some of it in Texas, and veteran actress Dorothy Malone (who was one of the main stars of P.P.) was thrilled, as she had retired to Texas & it wasn’t too far to travel to film the reunion movie...so the Texas town does make sense.

    Mason Dixon's Girls.....season 2 -- The boys go to pick up a water heater in the General but end up in trouble because it is a box full of marijuana instead. They team up with private detectives, Mason Dixon and girls, but Bo and Luke get caught by the drug dealers on Razorback Mountain and then the two girls get caught too. The dealers leave while all 4 are tied up but they get away and Luke and one of the girls take off after the dealers in hand gliders. This leads to a chase that has it all....lots and lots of gunfire....Boss gets his cigar shot when it's in his mouth.....car wrecks, cars in ponds, hand gliders in hot pursuit....one of Mason's girls driving the General Lee....a fight on top of a big truck load of pot....bombs blowing up the truck.....Boss covered in marijuana...and the drug dealers caught! --- bad disc again....missed a lot of beginning. Only 2 more eps on it...RIP Henry Flatt and Southern Comfurts...then season 3. -- This is the only time in 7 years we see Cooter's farm on Jessup Road and his dog Buster -- how 'bout that Tarzan yell when Bo got kissed! -- When the girls beat Bo and Luke up then took off their helmets Bo was surprised they were girls. Luke responded "I thought she felt a might soft whilst I was flying through the air" --Rosco is back as Sheriff.

    The 2nd Darlington race had some weather issues. Even though the start of the race was moved to an earlier time the rain still delayed the start of the race. I ended up going to bed so I didn't see any of it. From what I've read this morning it looks like Chase Elliot had a good chance to win the race till Kyle Busch wrecked him late in the rain shortened race. Denny Hamlin went on to win and Kyle Busch finished 2nd and Sunday's winner Kevin Harvick finished 3rd. Although Chase Elliot approached the racing surface to give Kyle a nice gesture it appears Nascar won't penalize him. The Coca Cola 600 is Sunday on Fox, hopefully mother nature will hold off on the rain this time.

    I had a quick flick through 'Peyton Place: The Next Generation' on YouTube (I've never seen it before). I thought that a couple of the shots looked like the square in Covington from the Georgia episodes of Dukes, but IMDb only lists Waxahachie, Texas in their filming locations. I checked that out on Google Maps, and it's definitely the place. Having said that, the architecture on the main block of stores in Hazzard Square would fit right in with the historic buildings around the courthouse in Waxahachie. BTW. The movie was made by Michael Filerman Productions in association with 20th Century Fox Television, so I can't see any Warner Bros. involvement.

    Yes, there's must've been (viewer) records broken. I read of people watching NASCAR here's in the Netherlands who have never watched it and now tuned in simply for the reason that its the first of any form of motorsport going again. Also got to see my favorite NASCAR driver win so happy days. Wont be able to tune in this Wednesday due to the starting time with them running it as a nightrace pretty much. It starts at like 2 AM for us. Thats simply too late for me even considering that this Thursday is a National holiday. Also, about Iracing. I watched most of those races but seeing North Wilkesboro, the track I've read so much about, raced by real drivers (albeit virtually) was just amazing.

    Kevin Harvick celebrated his 50th cup series win yesterday which puts him at #12 on the wins list sharing the spot with Ned Jarret and Junior Johnson. Alex Bowman finished 2nd and was a strong contender for the win. He also signed a 1 year extension with Hendrick Motorsports https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2020/05/16/alex-bowman-hendrick-motorsports-nascar-contract-extension-free-agency/ Rounding out the top 5 was Kurt Busch, Chase Elliot and Denny Hamlin. Matt Kenseth finished 10th in his first race since November 2018. Ryan Newman finished 15th Rookies Tyler Reddick finished 7th and John Hunter Nemechek finished 9th. I think if Jimmie Johnson didn't wreck he would have won the race if not finished in the top 3. Hopefully he does well Wednesday night. That race will air on FS1 at 7:30pm est.

    I last saw the documentary above a few years ago, and I've just had a chance to re-watch it. Here are a couple of quotes to show the highs and lows: On his accidents: "He's lost teeth, broken his shoulder, both legs, his back, his skull and has been in a coma for 38 days thanks to motor racing." After getting married: "The Mosses are honeymooning in Holland, but only for four days - Stirling has to be back in London to judge the Miss World contest." It must've been quite a life!

    My favorite has to be in Cale Yardborough Comes To Hazzard. There's a scene in the Boars Nest where Bo and Luke bring Mr Garvey to talk to Cooter about repairing the turbo charger. Daisy's wearing the Daisy Dukes and a yellow tank top. I don't know why but for some reason I love that combination
