A new experience last Thursday afternoon was a visit to Middle Mountain cabins to view the filming of a TV commercial. We were accompanied to the location by George Turner, who is production supervisor for Televideo Corporation, the company making the film for Maxwell House Coffee…
The commercial will tell the story of a forest ranger’s daughter preparing a snack for her father, tripping through the woods, seeing on the way a cub bear, fawn and rabbit, winding up the stairs of a fire tower to deliver the muffins and Maxwell House coffee to her father.
The ranger father actor had completed the scenes at Spruce Knob…
The crew descended on the cabin, washed windows, put up curtains, added flowers and adjusted reflectors, adjusted cameras – and waited for the sun to stay out long enough to get some shots…The animals were brought from the French Creek Game Farm.
Mr. Turner said he scouted around several forests before settling on the Spruce Knob tower because its size allowed room for cameras, etc.
He had only praise for the cooperation he had received from Monongahela National Forest personnel and the Game Farm. Plus he liked their quarters at The Hermitage very much.
