SHARE RESIDENTS’ HOMES ARE REAL `STARS’ IN `PRESUMED INNOCENT’

The early reviews of the film "Presumed Innocent" are in, and Allendale, N.J., people can't stop talking about the houses.

Allendale residents who saw the film during an early screening say they spent so much time looking at their homes on the silver screen they forgot to concentrate on the plot.A number of scenes were shot in the upscale suburb about 20 miles northwest of Manhattan.

Harrison Ford plays the role of a prosecuting attorney and the main suspect in the murder of a beautiful colleague. The film is an adaptation of the book by Chicago attorney Scott Turow.

Patricia Cellary saw Ford and actress Bonnie Bedelia, who plays his wife, act out scenes in her bedroom, back deck and kitchen.

"The first thing you see in the movie is . . . our house," she said.

Carol O'Neill's house does not play as big a part in the film, but she is just as star-struck.

"You can see my house when they open the door and Harrison Ford gets arrested," she said. "We couldn't concentrate on watching the movie."
