THE BARNBUSTER!  1971
Rich,
The commercials from 1977 were shot at the Walnut Creek, Ca. store.
We shut down the store for 3 days for the shoot. The ad agency was Wells Rich Green at that time.
Some more trivia on that shoot: Lonnie Anderson appeared as talent in one of the vignettes. She had not, at that time, gotten any big parts but was a pretty big talent for a little outfit like ours. Lonnie was on site less than an hour and had 3 "takes". the first take was the keeper and the other takes were only for insurance. Her line was "This is a real garden of eatin". (How do you forget Lonnie Anderson)
Most of the film crew had worked on Streets of San Francisco at onetime or another.
One of the generator trucks had  Catch 22 in it's credits.
The commercials were shot in 35mm using Panaflex cameras which was state of the art at that time.
The "sign", ( a standard 250 sq ft street sign) in the opening was temporarily installed on the back lot only for that shot. After the shot the sign was put back on the truck and delivered to a new store for installation. We just borrowed it.
As with most productions of that sort there was a caterer but most of the crew and talent preferred the Barnbusters fries and Chicken that we prepared for our crew.
We prepared most of the food shown with the exception of one or two "Hero" Barnbusters that were prepared by the food stylist.
Jacob S. (Pete) Painter
Western Regional Director ( at that time)
