'Hitchcockian' thriller filmed at the Glensheen Mansion airs Sunday night


A movie filmed at Duluth's Glensheen Mansion earlier this year will air Sunday and again Monday night.

The historic home, completed by the Congdon family in 1908, is perched on the shore of Lake Superior and was the backdrop of a new “Hitchcockian” psychological thriller called "Girl Missing", starring Clint Eastwood's daughter, Francesca Eastwood.

She plays Jane, a 25-year-old who was left for dead in a ditch at age 10, and is asked to return home to their "luxurious estate" by a woman claiming to be her mother, according to Lifetime. This forces Jane to "confront the demons of a past she wasn't supposed to remember", and she finds herself in the "middle of a murderous plot to seize the family fortune 15 years in the making."

The movie will air Sunday at 8 p.m., and again at midnight Monday, Lifetime's website shows.

The small film was shot in about three weeks, with a day spent at the mansion, the Duluth News Tribune says. At least one scene of the film features Eastwood on Clara Congdon's balcony, while interior footage was shot at the James J. Hill House in St. Paul, the paper notes.

This was the first film to be shot at the historic estate since “You’ll Like My Mother” in 1972, FOX 21 reported.

Since the 1977 murders of heiress Elisabeth Congdon and her night nurse at the mansion, the mansion’s owner, the University of Minnesota Duluth, has turned down requests from filmmakers to recreate the story.

The university has committed itself to telling the legacy of the Congdon family, instead of the grisly murders that happened decades ago, the Duluth News Tribune reported.

The newspaper says this story seemed different enough, so the university allowed the film.
