Every once in a while, I’ll do a search on YouTube for Grafton’s major Hollywood moment: Grafton Common’s appearance in the 1935 production of Eugene O’Neill’s  “Ah, Wilderness.” I’ve yet to find the entire movie — it doesn’t seem to be considered a major classic with the digital crowd — but I did find this recently:

    In addition to the scenes of the common, they shot scenes on South Street. You can see the lovely old wooden fence that used to be in front of #10 South St.

    That’s the only time I saw the movie.
