In 1938 or so… my mother happened upon the set of this movie and thought it was a ghost town… they used to go back to Sonora area (columbia) and try to find it (the set) and even look ‘old timers’ to interview, trying to find this ghost town. Well,,, the only thing they knew was that the schools name was ‘Thunderhead Mountain School’ … Thanks to one of the reviews here, a search returned the name of that school and I was able to find the date (1938) and the location of its filming (Sonora area). A 72 year old mystery was solved… my mother was only 12 when they found that movie set…. now shes 83… She was so excited to here that the mystery was finally solved… thanks to one of your reviews mentioning the school in this movie… thanks again
