As part of her 4th grade California mission project, Amara visited Mission San Juan Bautista and we helped her put together this video to show in class. She learned a lot about her mission and we tried to include many of those facts in the video.
Mission San Juan Bautista was used in Hitchcock's 1957 movie "Vertigo" starring Jimmy Stewart and Kim Novak. However, the church didn't have a belltower as shown in the movie; it was all done with matte painting, miniatures and a separate studio set for the interior.
Be sure to check out the bloopers at the end including a snippet of Amara from when she was only 1½ years old.
