One night my mom was watching a movie called "Prancer" and I got kind of interested in it. Actually, it is not a bad movie with Sam Elliot. It's about a girl who stumbles upon Prancer the Reindeer and she nurses him back to health so that he can rejoin Santa Claus. Part of the movie was filmed in Three Oaks, Michigan. A little more on how I figured that out a little later.
So how did I figure out that Prancer was set in Michigan? Well, we were watching the movie and I heard a train passing through and I said to my mom, "I think that's the Wolverine". She didn't think I was serious. And then in a couple scenes later, Sam Elliot mentions he had to go to Benton Harbor for something. I figured there weren't too many other Benton Harbors in the United States. So I put two and two together and figured it had to be somewhere in Southwestern Michigan. And looking it up on imdb confirmed that.
