Movie References to Duluth, MN

There’s a long tradition of making fun of Duluth, Minnesota, in the movies. The recently released trailer for the George Clooney directed romantic comedy “Leatherheads” continues that tradition. While the film features a Duluth-based professional football team, it was filmed mostly in North Carolina. See my previous post on “Leatherheads.”

  1. The true story of the 1920s NFL team from Duluth, the team on which the Clooney movie is based, can be found in my new book, “Leatherheads of the North.” Good stuff. Check out the Web site at And let me know if you want anything more about the book and the real and true story of Ernie Nevers and the Duluth Eskimos!!
