Opinion

From Library Staff

I remember when an episode of Falcon Crest was filmed on the Oregon Coast. I wish I'd been around when the cast of Sometimes A Great Notion came to town instead. Reading these great stories and anecdotes from local residents is the next best thing.

When filming Sometimes a Great Notion on the Oregon Coast, which local beer did Paul Newman consider to be 'the closes substitute' for his beloved Coors?
