Landmark backdrop for movie shoot - with photo gallery

By Christopher Behnan • DAILY PRESS & ARGUS • April 5, 2009

Actress Hilary Swank's film shoot in Howell on Saturday hardly captured the excitement of Steve McQueen's car chase scene in "Bullitt," but still drew some 45 people to the set of "Betty Anne Waters."

Swank plays the title role in the film, which tells the true story of a woman who puts herself through law school and eventually represents her brother, later found to be wrongfully convicted of murder. (photo gallery)

The two-time Academy Award winner wore a green coat and black slacks, walked from west to east on State Street, up the side staircase of the historical Livingston County Courthouse and inside — five times.
