    We watched Signpost to Murder (Joanne Woodward + Stuart Whitman) the other night - much of the film was set at a beautiful Mill House and we have not managed to find out where it is !
    Apparently the same location was used in the opening sequence of To trap a Spy (Man from UNCLE 1964) but I cannot confirm as have not seen it.

    Anybody know the lovely Mill House location ?

    According to Wally Worsley's 'Half-century in Hollywood' it was filmed on stage 15 at MGMs studio.

    Thanks for replying Tavistock
    Yes much of the indoor scenes would have been shot in the studio but the external views looked very good and we thought they had probably been filmed on location.

    The mill house is outdoors (i.e. not a soundstage set), but various things about it don't ring true so I'm pretty sure it was a backlot set, particularly as the film seems to have been made entirely in the US. The village seen in the opening scenes is backlot and matte painting too.

    Thanks gh - I had thought that parts of the millhouse footage looked far more realistic then the village 'painting' and had wondered if the millhouse was at least partly genuine.
