The imitation glass eye that James Stewart wore throughout the movie caused sufficient discomfort to force him to work for no more than twenty minutes at a time. Once it was in place, filming had to begin immediately in order to maximize productivity. See more »
When Homer Grindstaff is supposed to be locking the bank door early in the movie, the key is clearly not even in the lock. He is merely making a gesture by fiddling with the key. See more »
Sadly not on vhs/dvd in US!James Stewart/Kurt Russell Rules!!
In this superb but little known 1971 film starring Jimmy Stewart,Kurt Russell playing ex-convicts trying to cash a check in a corrupt town that won't let them.Based on the book "Fools Parade" by Davis Grubb whose other book"Night of the Hunter" was also made into a movie 1955-starring Robert Mitchum,Shelley Winters and both movies filmed in West Virginia.Unfortunately like so many other great movies"Fools Parade"has never been released on vhs/dvd in the US which hopefully will change someday.
