  2. Hello!

    We're wondering where Tommy Lee Jones offices were set. Was that a Los Angeles office that they just put in Chicago scenes for? It looked like it was on Michigan Ave. looking west, like just north of the Wrigley.

    2. Marshal's office was at 330 N Wabash - the former "One IBM Plaza". IBM has since moved out and it is now a hotel of some sort. When this was filmed, the Chicago Sun Times was at 401 N Wabash - now replaced by the Trump Tower.

  3. Hello,

    I believe the offices were in Chicago but never really tried to pinpoint them as the locations I put up are usually ones that possibly can been seen in person. Maybe I will add what building it was some day.

  4. My advice to all who want to visit these locations is be careful, a lot these locations are in the gang infested slums of Chicago trust me I was born and raised and still live here, I say just stick to the downtown area locations you'll be safe there but any of the south side locations trust me STAY OUT and don't forget Chicago averages 600 plus murders a year more then any other US city

  5. From the U.S. Marshall's office view of the Wrigley Building clock, the building is probably 401 North Michigan Avenue. I worked in the building and had that nice view.

  6. The scenes on the bus with the train wreck were filmed just outside of Dillsboro, North Carolina on the Great Smoky Mountains Railway. They still have the wrecked bus and train locomotives on display there. A Google Image search for "Illinois Southern" should turn these up. The dam that Kimball "jumped" from is the Cheoah Dam in rural western North Carolina. The hospital where Kimball field dresses his injuries and shaves his beard is in Sylva, North Carolina.

  7. The Stock Yards 76 truck stop scene was shot in Canaryville, 45th and Halsted. The truck stop is no longer there.

  8. On the DVD commentary the director said the street where Dr Nichols gives Harrison some money, after he left the tennis club, is called Lower Wacker Drive, different streets are listed here

    1. Hello, thank you for your comment. I am 99% sure I am correct. Lower Wacker Drive is on the other side of the river. The tennis club is on the other side of the river away from Lower Wacker Drive.

    2. Lower wacker drive - the michigan avenue bridge has two levels (who knew) - so the corner where the money exchange takes place is lower Kinzie and Lower Michigan. Just across the street from the Billy Goat.

  9. I have pictures of the ACTUAL prison bus used, the train and other locations like the dam and hospital where he steals the ambulance. Google 'Flickr MrLocation Fugitive' or follow the link to the left of Chas' front page 'Mr. Location'.

  10. As a 2nd grader, I met Harrison Ford when they were filming the The Thrift Store scene. My teacher pulled us out of class to meet him, I was attending Phillip H Sheridan Elementary school - which is now Arnold Mireles. me being oblivious to any of Harrison's films, didn't have a clue who he was. One of my favorite films to this date.

  11. You refer to him as "Bimble" a couple a times. Thanks for the info. This will come in handy when I'm in Chicago!

  12. When Harrison Ford is remembering being in the car with Sela Ward they pass the former White Hen Pantry (now 7-11) at 2710 N. Lincoln Avenue in Chicago (you can make out the White Hen Pantry name through Harrison Ford's car window.

  13. another scene is taken from the medical district near hyde park, where there is an archway. there are a couple different spots that have a similar archway, but, I know for a fact there is one at 949 east 58th st. you can actually do a google map and see it. I have a movie still of Ford standing outside of it
