Residents remember when Leap of Faith filmed in Plainview


In 1992, Hollywood descended to Plainview to film Leap of Faith starring Steve Martin. The movie was set in the fictional town called Rustwater, Kansas. Memories from the set can still be found on a painting outside the former quick lunch downtown which is now called Broadway Brew.

"The water tower is kind of controversial for people in Plainview because it is not a Plainview bulldog like the other water town but it being here lets us remember that we had something special in our community when the community came together," recalls resident Phyllis Wall about the movie.

The people of Plainview were hired to work on the set as extras in the movie and even offered their homes for stars to stay in.
