Trivia:

Robert Altman's A Wedding (1978) was shot during the summer of 1977 principally on the Armour estate in Lake Bluff, IL. Every shooting day Cromwell and Ruth Nelson could be seen, in costume, in a small first-floor room set aside for them. Sometimes, they could be seen talking, but most often they each were absorbed reading books. See more »
