In Broad Daylight movie advertisement

This advertisement for the movie “In Broad Daylight” was placed in newspapers around the country.  Friend Patti Hawkins found in on the inside cover of her book and sent it along for posting. In this age of “The Bully,” it’s hard to imagine a more menacing figure than this. I recall that on the set of the movie Denehey was so taken with the role that he made people nervous and they stayed out of his way.  He died his hair black, wore black contact lenses, and carried a shotgun in the crook of his arm. Notice that the ad does not mention Marcia Gay Haren (Trena) or Chris Cooper (Stratton), both of whom would go on to some fame. You can find the movie on my blog.In Broad Daylight Ad

  1. Despite this being a TV movie and those are usually done on low budgets, they sure made Brian Denehey look like the real Ken McElroy, based on photos I’ve seen of McElroy.

    One question, why did they change the names of the characters and town for the TV movie.

    • As for the people, they couldn’t get releases from all of them, including the Bowenkamps, so they changed the names. I heard different reasons as for why they didn’t film it in Skidmore, including that the there wasn’t enough electricity to run all of their equipment and that they were a little nervous about being in the town itself.
