PIG FLICK 

PIG FLICK

Anybody remember that movie Win a Date with Tad Hamilton, that opened in January? Nah, we didn t remember it either until a little booklet about the making of the film showed up. In it we found the following anecdote: Win a Date With Ted Hamilton was shot entirely in and around Los Angeles, which meant finding several West Coast stand-ins for Fraziers Bottom, West Virginia ... [including] the Piggly Wiggly grocery store. The production team converted a vacant grocery store in Van Nuys into a Piggly Wiggly complete with a giant Mr. Pig sign and other Pig paraphernalia provided by the Piggly Wiggly Corporation. According to our source, The imitation Piggly Wiggly proved a little too convincing to the dozens of people -- per haps transplanted Southerners, who showed up with grocery lists in hand. Even after they were told that the store was not a real Piggly Wiggly, the mob still tried to push their way in.
