    after reading most of the internet, read somewhere that the fountain Friends cast splashed in was the same fountain Charlton Heston died in.
    what movie?

    Trick question.

    The fountain Heston dies in is much smaller than the FRIENDS fountain - likely a smaller studio made fountain prop, because the original was too big to get the bloody water look.

    But the location is the same.

    The film was The Omega Man.

    As I said, it's the same location
    [​IMG]
    The FRIENDS fountain, with the OMEGA MAN house dead center behind it, at the Warner Brothers Ranch(Coulmbia Ranch when Omega Man was filmed).

    And a fountain is a fountain.

    The "death" fountain is small & octagonal/decagonal in shape.

    But the fountain in the first photo is large and circular.

    Like much movie magic, the hope is the moment/image is powerful enough to have your imagination fill in the blanks.
