thanks so much for replying. I actually met your parents (Olin and Sue?) in 2004. I had wanted to interview them for a documentary called Fried Green Tomorrows: Juliette, GA Lives. Although it was about Juliette, when I met them I just really enjoyed talking to them. It ended up that the documentary is only 45 minutes so we had to forgo other interviews. Anyway, I'll never forget the two of them sitting on the front porch talking about their relationship and marriage, and Mr. McDaniel said "it seems like it's only been two weeks. Time is so short." I believe they said they were in their 90's?
The reason why I'm searching for locations again is that I live in Juliette now and I'm always asked where everything was filmed. Although I knew about the nursing home and Winn Dixie in Newnan, I did not know that the Threadgoode interiors were film there. So, thanks for that info. There are websites that say Fayetteville (the city) was a principal location for the movie, but I can't find exactly what was filmed there. Also, supposedly, Starr's Mill was the building where all the gambling took place in the movie. I have been there but it just doesn't look like the same spot. Maybe because it's been 15 years.
