I caught the second half of 'Headless Woman' on METV this past weekend. The Tucker's Landing set is pretty impressive when you take in all the details.
Where exactly was it located? The map at the link below shows "miniature pool" in the lower right corner. If the pool was outside, did they build the wharf around it? Was this the same pool Mr. West dove into when he jumped out the window in "Water Death?"
Iíll have to verify by rewatching these episodes ó but at least initially Iím pretty sure the Ďminiature poolí in the lower right of map was only used for underwater shots (through a glass window). The Tucker set was too large for this facility which was only intended for close/tight surface shots and underwater shots.
Iím thinking the Tucker set is over at the lagoon (where it shows structures on the upper left) - the lagoon wasnít totally given over to Gilliganís Island was still still used for different productions. You can see the general area on the photo you included ó right between the Ďcliffsí and the Duchess Ranch barn structure ó set roofs are visible (though you canít see the lagoon itself).
Iíll watch the epís and see if anything else pops. Thatís a great photo of the backlot iíve Never seen!
Well, Iíve discovered that there was a larger water area for set/boat filming, at least in the 50ís ó you can see it here, bottom right, and the smaller under water filming tank looks like it could be part of the structure.
