In recent years, Planes, Trains and Automobiles has become a holiday favorite of mine. While doing some research about the film, I came across this fact from the Associated Press around the filming of the movie. From this and other research, it sounds like they had a lot of trouble finding snow for the snow scenes. They chased filming locations from Chicago to Buffalo. When they finally got snow, they got too much of it. I can't imagine what it was like for the crew, John Candy and Steve Martin during these scenes. Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
