"A woman once asked if she could touch me," says Nyssa Perrin. "I've had people just freak out. " Why? Because when she was a little girl, five years before "The Goonies" was made, she lived in the Goonies house.

"The house was dilapidated at the time," says Perrin, "Nothing like it is now." Most of the surrounding houses had children, and the children played together, and she has the usual childhood memories. There was no indication that the house and neighborhood would soon be the set for a movie.
