Wow.Slow news day in Wall-tham?
Rock-a-feller, he's the fellerThat we loveRock-a-FellerRockAFellErThat was actually a popular song back when old Nelson A was still considered a viable candidate for president.I presume the song playing on the radio in his office when/where he died was the old Gene Autry ditty:"I'm back in the Saddle again Here where a friend is *croak*.
That house doesn't look like something I'd see in Waltham.
It was once mentioned in Fringe, too! I taped it!
Waltham is famous for its watchmaking.
Waltham...it sounds like something that should be illegal. Wall them! Nobody should be walled up! Also, Pink Floyd should break down that wall!
Did you know Waltham was where Casablanca was really filmed? It's true!
Lawrence of Arabia, too...big old set on Main Street.
When the Beatles first visited America, Waltham was their first stop...there's a plaque on the corner of Bank and Charles.
The Rolling Stones song, "Memory Motel" was written in Waltham...that's why the passing Boston reference.
When Peter Jackson was filming Lord of the Rings, he considered Waltham first because of its huge population of short people with hairy feet. New Zealand actually won him over because of its mountains.
Several westerns in the 60s used Waltham as their setting, thanks to the town's many saloons and burlesque theaters. Watch the credits carefully on TCM and you'll see the proof.
In LOST, Jack once wears a jack with a Waltham embroidered patch on the shoulder...though he never actually makes a mention of it.
The newest Bond movie is actually being shot in beautiful Waltham...though most of it is car chases so it won't be immediately obvious. Watch for Green Lantern on the left about 20 minutes in.
