April 8, 1999


If you thought you saw actress Glenn Close standing in the check-out lane of a Lawrence store last weekend, you probably did.

The actress was in town doing some shopping during a break from the filming of "Winter's End," the final made-for-television movie in the "Sarah, Plain and Tall" trilogy.

Vicky Henley, manager of the Kansas Film Commission, said Close and her co-stars, Christopher Walken and Jack Palance, are working five days a week and have weekends off.

"Winter's End" is being shot in the Dodge City and Osage County areas and its production office is based in Emporia, Henley said. Filming began March 25 and will continue through April 24.

The segment is set in 1918 as World War I and a flu epidemic are approaching, she said. The film will air in November as a Hallmark Hall of Fame special, and then the "Sarah, Plain and Tall" trilogy will be available in time for the holiday season.

Henley said the first "Sarah" movie was made in Kansas in 1991; the second, "Skylark," was filmed in 1992.
