Breaking In (1989)

December 13th, 2009 by Anne Richardson · No Comments · 1980's, Oregon film, Oregon film old definition, Oregon location (primary)

Professional thief Ernie (Burt Reynolds) meets Mike (Casey Siemaszko), an underemployed young mechanic, after they both break into the same house – one to crack a safe, the other just to make  sandwich.  The men size each other up, and then Ernie makes a business proposition. The climax of this low key caper film takes place in the basement under the Oaks Park skating rink.

This is Casey Siemaszko’s second Oregon film, after Stand By Me. Screenwriter John Sayles’ second Oregon film, after Clan of the Cave Bear.

I hereby claim Breaking In as an Oregon film, on the basis of the location shooting.
