“I spent several days trimming the same hedge. I probably pretty much killed it.”

— Troy resident Peter Paton, on one of his experiences during the filming of the new Martin Scorsese film “Shutter Island.” Paton had a walk-on role as a mental hospital patient in the film, and his longest time on screen comes in the closing moments of the film, when he and other patients are kept busy trimming shrubs and raking the hospital’s front lawn.
