    With local Murphy and Sonora town exteriors establishing the "Seven Brides For Seven Brothers" locations, the construction-paint-decorating departments made major alterations to existing sites; requiring removal of 6' high board fences, shrubs, awnings, existing signs, masking exterior adjacent buildings or parking lots. Asphalt covered parking areas were masked by being covered with dirt for the horses' action scenes, split rail fences added for an improved "Western" locale. Repainting location sight buildings, including roofs, with patina aging the exterior's "new paint" treatment. Specific scenarios required painting distant background grass fields and hills with green paint, specifically to cover the golden brown "dry" grass covered Northern California landscapes. Filming during July through October, usually all the exteriors turned golden brown due to lack of rain fall! The construction coordinator Larry Verne was required to build new roads, and bridges, to create sight access for production vehicles, in order to move the "company" into filming locations. Special balsa wood fences replaced existing corals for stunt stampeded action scenes. Ironically, cows do not follow stunt stampede directions, always stopping at the split rail fence! The cow wranglers, off and outside of camera range, had to "push" the cows through the fences! Building "new" OLD barns on ranch sites, which had to burn down during the plot, required extensive coordination with property owners, Sheriff and Fire Department staff, and local County Government filming permits.

    Another script, "The Rescue", centered around a ten passenger turboprop Beechcraft aircraft, which crashes in the high Sierra mountain range, with the family of seven brothers rescuing the pilot and passengers. Requesting information about the airplane from the Beechcraft Company in Ohio, required sending the script for an approval for the production company to use any Beechcraft airplanes. The Production Designer located an airplane salvage yard in Reno, Nevada, that had identical airplanes that could be filmed. The salvage yard owner packed the two fuselages, wings and tail parts into a pickup truck and trailer, delivering the airplane parts to the stage. On a Murphys location exterior sight, the one airplane was assembled and set in an open forest glade. With no snowfall, plastic shaved snow particles was sprinkled on the ground to simulate a snow fall. On Stage, the Beechcraft fuselage was set in a forest setting. The salvage owner became the technical advisor, related to both airplane's assembly and use. He removed one side of the stage's fuselage for the cast and camera crew to work inside the airplane. From the Beechcraft Company's sales brochure, the art department had Pacific Studios deliver a color blow up of the cockpit's instrument panel, which was mounted in front of the gutted pilot's instrument cockpit panel. Exteriors were first to be filmed and a miracle occurred. Overnight, a snow storm dropped four inches of powder in the Sierra range, the location's airplane crash sight was under the 4" deep powder of snow! This show, in the 1983 EMMY Nomination entries, was nominated in the film series Art Direction EMMY category.

    While filming the exterior Beechcraft airplane crash sight for "The Rescue", large fans, placed in front of the foreground multiple camera positions, blew shaved white-plastic particles simulating snow flurries. During the night, an actual snow storm blew over the Sierra mountains covering the film sight in 'real snow'. After the production company had departed in January 1983, the Federal Forestry Division required MGM Studios to clean up the filming location sight. After the snow melted, the ground was covered with the shavings of plastic. MGM contracted a local Murphys company to clean and sweep the location, during June 1983, a sizable clean-up payment of $10,000.00.
