  1. the running in the park scene was at St Joseph's. the building they are leaning against was the front of the local bowling ally in Rensselaer. (the property of the college is next to the bowling ally) since then the ally flipped and the entrance is on the back side and a bank went in the front.

    1. Hi, thanks for the info. Could you be more exact? The bowling alley is surrounded by houses. Plus there is no park near by on that side of the street. Thanks

  2. The main building wasn't torn down, there was actually a fire in 1973 and it burnt down.

  6. About 41 minutes into the film, there's a scene which was filmed at Notre Dame Stadium during a Bears exhibition game there on August 28, 1971. I recognized the scoreboards and pressbox which were pretty much the same when I was a student there in the early 1980's.
