Oregon plays Virginia in this Civil War story about a farmer who is under the delusion that he can opt out of the political conflict dividing his nation. I regard this film with horror. Millions disagreed with me, and it was a box office success.

I am not the first to claim Shenandoah as an Oregon film.

    When I was a nine yr old boy we lived on Little Fall Creek (15 miles east of Eugene) and some big trucks pulled up on the road. We found out they were filming this movie at our next door neighbors ranch. They filmed the scene on the bridge where Jimmy Stewart slaps a young soldier. We would ride our bikes to the shots and our dog interupted a few scenes by running on to the campfire set and scratching his fleas. We did not know who Jimmy Stewart was but this guy asked us about fishing the creek so we took him fishing with us in our front yard. Our dad spotted us and asked if we knew who the guy was fishing with us. We just shrugged and said no, just a nice guy from the film crew. He said why thats Jimmy Stewart. We knew who Doug McClure was (Trampus) but he was a jerk to us. The trout in the opening scene were caught by me. We ate with the crew and the memories will last a lifetime. Jimmy Stewart was a prince of a man.

    I love this story! “We ate with the crew and the memories will last a lifetime.” I bet Jimmy Stewart enjoyed the company of people who didn’t know who he was, even if those people were nine years old.
