Filming "The Glass Mountain": During the filming of "The Glass Mountain" in Dolomites, film producer Joseph Janni searched for extras and found peasants who might have been born for the job. Local people inside church. No film studio setting, but a scene "shot" inside a little church at San Fento in the Dolomites. None of these peasants had ever seen a film camera, but all joined in to take their parts as extras for a sequence, Northern Italy
