Film’s silk flowers dazzling even on poison ivy

SHARE Film’s silk flowers dazzling even on poison ivy

Watching the shooting of the Robin Williams movie "What Dreams May Come" at Phoenix Lake in Marin County, Calif., last week, the Manley family - Pop, Sam and Hannah - were dazzled by the silk flowers the crew had wired to the natural plants on the hillsides.

This included "a particular shrub sporting dozens of magenta blossoms," apparently attached by a "naive prop hand."It was poison oak.
