Question about the statue in front of the courthouse
24 May 2006 | by kufsu2See all my reviews

I would like to ask a question about the statue in front of the courthouse: Does anyone know who the person is that is represented by the statue in the scenes in front of the courthouse with Michael Sarrazin and Sue Lyon? I believe the courthouse is in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. Would appreciate any information anyone would have. Saw the movie many years ago, but really enjoyed it. George C. Scott is good as he always was, plus I remember thinking that Michael Sarrazin and Sue Lyon were also good in their roles. It is a nice romantic movie for teens or really for anyone of any age. But it is probably pretty dated now, by today's standards.
