REGION - Location scout Tracy Kurtz remembers the first time she saw Hollywood in downtown Traverse City. It was wearing an Armani suit, dark sunglasses, and expensive-looking shoes.

“I was working for Tim Allen’s show, Home Improvement, and had a meeting scheduled with the director, Frank McKemy. He arrived during Cherry Festival and I found him standing in front of Gibby’s Fries, wearing an all black Armani suit. I said, “You must be Frank.” He said, “How did you know?” It was just one of those non-sequiturs that happen all the time in this business.”
