'Guarding Tess' offers sightings of local sites

Best bet

September 01, 1997|By Chris Kaltenbach

Shirley MacLaine, as a former first lady, and Nicolas Cage, as her hangdog Secret Service protector, make a nice team in "Guarding Tess" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11), but the real reason to watch -- for folks around here -- is the star turn by Baltimore and Maryland.

Standing in for "Summersville, Ohio," metropolitan Baltimore pops up several times during the 1994 film. There's Laboreore, a 125-year-old Mount Washington mansion that plays Tess' home; there's Kernan Hospital, playing a hospital; there's a spot alongside Loch Raven, playing host to a picnic; there's well, we wouldn't want to give them all away. Spotting them for yourself is half the fun.
