5 Things In ‘The Notebook’ You Didn’t Notice Until Now

Published

The Notebook is considered one of the best romance films ever made. An adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’s famous novel, the iconic love story between Noah and Allie has made us swoon since 2004. But like many other films, upon re-watching the movie as an adult, you notice things you failed to acknowledge before.

The Gorgeous Scenery

When you’re watching The Notebook for the first time, you’re focusing on the story. Upon re-watching, you might notice the gorgeous scenery. Filmed mostly in Charleston, South Carolina, the movie features moss dripping off old oak trees, marsh-lined rivers, and stunning sunsets. The Notebook proves Charleston is one of the most beautiful cities in the United States.

They’re Wearing Coats During The Summer

Viewers in the South would notice Noah and Allie are wearing thick cardigans, wool coats, caps, and long sleeves during the summer. Who would want to wear winter attire in 103 degrees Fahrenheit? It’s highly unlikely Noah and Allie would be wearing these clothes in the sweltering summer heat.

Allie’s Mom’s Ex Was In ‘One Tree Hill’

Actor Paul Johansson is in one brief scene when Allie learns about the man her mother once loved. If he looked familiar to you, Johansson starred as the jerky father Dan Scott in the hit teen drama One Tree Hill. You’ll have to pay attention the next time you watch the movie.

Sam Shepard’s Wonderful Performance

Veteran actor and playwright Sam Shepard deserves more credit for his role as Noah’s father, Frank Calhoun. Maybe you didn’t notice him before, but you’ll want to pay attention to his performance. His character, while minor, made a major impact on the film due to Shepard’s kindness and commitment, assisting director Nick Cassavetes in whatever way possible.

The Cheap Real Estate

As you re-watch the film, you’ll notice how inexpensive the real estate was in 1940. The iconic white house with blue shutters was sold for just $45,000. Yes, this was a different time period, but if you want to buy a house like that in today’s market, expect to pay over $2 million.
