Jayne Mansfield’s Car Filming in Cedartown

More Services

Last week the clock was turned back 40 years in Cedartown, GA for the feature film Jayne Mansfield’s Car which has spent several days filming on Main St.

The movie, which is set in 1969, stars Kevin Bacon, Billy Bob Thornton, and Robert Duvall, all of whom have been spotted around town. Onlookers traveled from miles to watch the stars film in this usually sleepy small town.

On Wednesday and Thursday Bacon shot a scene on Main St (which was filling in as Morrison, Alabama) in which his character leads a group of Vietnam War protesters while hundreds of film fans watched.

The stars not only filmed around Cedartown, they were also spotted in local restaurants and shops. Robert Duvall had dinner at Johnny’s New York Style Pizza on Broad Street in nearby Rome Wednesday night and had brunch at the Harvest Moon Café the very next day.
