Can you spot the landmarks? There’s a new Christmas themed romantic comedy on Netflix called “Christmas Inheritance,” which was partly filmed in North Bay this past spring, and also in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The Grand Victorian bed and breakfast played a starring role for many Snow Falls shots, with Old Town standing in for Snow Falls in many scenes. The production crew put a lot of work into giving this springtime movie a wintry feel. As if mother nature was aware of what was happening, just about 10 days before the movie filmed, a big snowstorm hit nearby.
The film’s story line is as follows: Before ambitious heiress Ellen Langford can inherit her father’s gift business, she must deliver a special Christmas card to her dad’s former partner in Snow Falls, the hometown she never knew. When a snowstorm strands her at the town inn, she’s forced to work for her keep, and in the process, finds romance and discovers the true gift of Christmas.
The film stars Australian actress Eliza Taylor as Langford. Other names on the cast list you might recognize are actress Andie MacDowell and Canadian actress Mag Ruffman (best known as Aunt Olivia on CBC’s “Road to Avonlea”).
