The Retro channel bills itself as the place where memories are made. Well this film brought back some memories. Not the good ole boy, or the corn likker, or the sweet Arkansas babes - it had all of those - but the memories of the town I lived in from the Sixth grade through High School.
White Lightening, starring Burt Reynolds as Gator McKlusky, was filmed in Benton, Arkansas. It was Saline County, not Bogen as the film states. It brought back memories of the Saline County Courthouse, where a lot of the action took place. Of course, I was off in Vietnam when they were filming, so I didn't get to see ole Burt.
This isn't quality film-making or dramatic acting, although it was rumored to be Steven Spielburg's directorial debut. I wonder what happened there.
Hey, it's OK for a rainy Saturday afternoon and it was a trip back home.
