|Eric Clavering as Shing Wauk sets up for a scene in the episode 'The Great Hypnotist when Mr. Mcleod hypnotizes him into believing he is his great grandfather during the old Indian warrior days of early Canadian history. The plan backfires on Mcleod when Shing Wauk goes crazy and starts letting arrows fly at his head. There is a funny story told to me by Eric's daughter about this episode. There was a scene where Shing Wauk has to put a knife into his mouth and climb up the fort's ladder. Well it happens that Eric's son was on set that day and was playing with this very knife which he accidentally dropped into some horse dung just before the scene was to be shot. Eric simply grabbed the knife and wiped it off and stuck it into his mouth- Yuck!!!!!|
|Here it is!!! I finally found it!!!! The remains of the fire tower used in the winter of 1965 when Joe climbs the tower to nab Finnigan's murderer. Through much research it was determined that the Widdifield Fire Tower in North Bay was the one used. The old crew from the show were unable to recall the location but when my friend Gary and I drove up to the site it was confirmed that indeed this was the tower. The cupola has been removed and this tower is now used as a radio tower. This was the main reason I started my Ontario's Fire Towers site- I wanted to find this very tower. To read about my search for this tower and the time and hard work I had to put in to determining that this was the tower click here. The next two photos below are from the tv show itself. One is the distant winter shot through the trees and the other shows Michael Zenon climbing up the tower in the sub-zero temperature to nab the killer.
Below those photos is another special find. In the spring of 2003 I went back onto the Kleinburg studio lot, and low-and-behold I came upon the remains of Mcleod's old shack rotting in the ground in pretty much the exact place I figured it would have been located. I had walked by it twice before and never even saw it there due to the very high grass. But as u can see in the spring the grass is much shorter and getting a view is much easier.
