    Stealing home 1988

    Post  Eugene on Sat Feb 20, 2010 12:23 pm


    Stealing Home is a 1988 movie, starring Mark Harmon, Jodie Foster, Jonathan Silverman, and Harold Ramis. The film is directed by Steven Kampmann and William Porter.



    The storytelling device of the flashback gets an intense workout in this tragic coming-of-age drama. Mark Harmon stars as washed-up baseball player Billy Wyatt, who is shocked when he receives news that his childhood sweetheart and friend Katie Chandler (Jodie Foster) has committed suicide and left the disposal of her ashes to his judgment. Although Billy and Katie have not kept in touch through the years, he has always carried a torch for her, his first love. On his way home, Billy recalls his past associations with the free-spirited Katie: their first meeting, the time they made love, and conversations they had, mostly during summers at the New Jersey shore. Billy also remembers the adolescent mischief he got into with his best friend, Alan Appleby (played by Jonathan Silverman in the flashbacks, Harold Ramis in the present-day), like when each of them ended up sleeping with other's prom date. Billy finally decides to cast Katie's ashes to the wind in the place where they were happiest, by the seashore).(The film plot is set in the Philadelphia area and the New Jersey shore ).

    Katie Chandler: See that's all I want to do Billy-Boy. I want to leap of this pier and fly high in the air with hang with the wind and drift through the clouds, and at night, with the Moon full and the sea wild, I meet my lover high on a cliff and we'd swoop down into the ocean and swim all the way touch the bottom up through the dark water and break the surface. Then we'd fly to Jamaica for Pina Colatas... God, I wish I could do that.

    Last year, a Chestnut Hill home where the 1988 Jodie Foster movie, Stealing Home, was filmed hit the market. The 7,000-square-foot home is still for sale, but is now being offered for $355,000 less.

    Now listed for about $1.8 million, the Lynnebrook Lane home was used for one scene in Stealing Home, where Foster starred alongside Mark Harmon. The scene was filmed in the backyard, where Foster dove to the bottom of the pool to touch the drain.

    “[The film] was something that we would frequently hear about from people who had been there at the house when it was done,” Jeannine Cattie, the current owner, told us last year. “The previous owner would entertain often and many people got a chance to see it being filmed.”

    While there was only one scene filmed at this home, many other parts of the movie were shot around Chestnut Hill.

    It has six bedrooms, five-and-a-half baths, a guest apartment, and a five-car garage. The home includes many original architectural details: concrete floors with inlaid brass, tall casement windows, and stone walls.

    The current owners, who lived there for 17 years, completed many renovations, including fixing up the famous pool. They gutted the pool with new pipes, drains and a filtration plant, and laid stonework around the perimeter.
