My family and I particularly enjoyed this film because it rang true to its era and area. My husband's grandfather was so important to Mountain View, AR that the army would not accept him for service in the Civil War; he was the town's only miller and needed there. My husband's father died at age 104 fourteen years ago and was proud to be from Arkansas, loved to tell of the history. The old-time singing was especially authentic. How I would like to have a video. Taped it from TV the one time we ever knew it to be on here but the local station cut some of the best scenes! I have to say we are not, were not a drinking family, but we surely enjoyed The Bootleggers movie, anyway!
