Making a little Mischief in Nelsonville

Nelsonville's claim to Hollywood fame was the movie "Mischief" with many scenes filmed around town during the middle 1980's. Originally the movie was to be called "Heart and Soul" but Sally Field's movie "Places in the Heart" was scheduled for the same release time so the name was changed to Mischief. It is one of those teen romance movies and when the movie came out it did not represent the old fashioned values of Nelsonville's residents who were generally shocked by the movie's R rated content. However, the film does show some background scenery of historical Nelsonville.

The fountain is seen several times in the movie, as well as the square as a whole. But you may notice that the cars go clock-wise around the square in the film, and counter-clockwise in reality. The garage that Gene works at in Mischief is actually on Chestnut Street.
