Did you know...~ Bedford Falls' main street was the length of 3 football fields. It had 75 various buildings and stores.~ Full grown oak trees -- about 20 of them -- were brought in and planted along the sides of the main street of Bedford Falls. For the fall and winter scenes, all the leaves were removed from them.~ It took at least 3 weeks of prep time to create the snowstorm. ~ How'd they make those blizzard-like scenes, anyway? With 300 tons each of gypsum and plaster, 3000 tons of shaved ice, and 6000 gallons of chemicals.~ The making of this classic film cost about $2,300,000.~ This 1946 film was nominated for 5 Oscars.
