Beyond the Backlot - S01E06 - Groundhog Day

Beyond the Backlot season 1 episode 6

Groundhog Day

Watch out for that first step -- it's a doozy! Beyond the Backlot heads to Woodstock, Illinois (aka "Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania") for Groundhog Day (1993) filming locations! Harold Ramis. Bill Murray. And Phil the Groundhog. This existential comedy has excited the imaginations and souls of its audience for nearly three decades. This quintessential American town that director Harold Ramis selected for Groundhog Day (1993) looks like a Hollywood studio backlot -- a gorgeous town square, cobblestone roads, local shop fronts, and an idyllic bell tower (in a opera house, no less!). Curtis and the Beyond the Backlot crew bounce around this tucked-away suburban Chicago town to spot all the movie's memorable filming locations. And what a journey we went on! Beyond the Backlot was joined by actor Stephen Tobolowsky to discuss his iconic roll of Ned Ryerson, that pesky and hilarious insurance salesman. We also browsed the Groundhog Day film relics at the local library, caught a movie at the Harold Ramis Auditorium, and -- most importantly -- discovered the love, warmth, and hospitality of Woodstock's wonderful residents. Undoubtedly, these people and their town are synonymous with the movie, playing a huge part in what transformed the cynical Phil Connors into a selfless and empathetic character. Thanks for joining us on this adventure! Happy New Year and Happy Groundhog Day! Has there been a more "Groundhog Day" year than 2020 with COVID?! Let's hope spring comes soon! Bing!
