Today’s photo is from a time when Clemson’s campus became a movie set back in 1973. In fact, Clemson was not “Clemson”…it was “Jordan College”. The filming of “The Midnight Man” took place in Clemson and was filmed at various parts of the campus, including the President’s House.

The following parts of campus can be seen at various times during the movie:

Mell Hall, Tillman Hall, Clemson Motel,  Coach Ibrahim M. Ibrahim's Athletic Department Store, Riggs Field, YMCA building (Holtzendorff Hall), Trustee House, and the President's House.

The film was released in the United States on June 10, 1974 in New York City, and nationwide on June 14. It premiered at the Astro III theatre, Clemson, S.C., on March 14, 1974 with a red carpet ceremony.
