I was an "extra" (so to speak) in the movie
9 August 1999 | by (gainesville, georgia (usa)) – See all my reviews

My hometown of Monroe, Georgia (USA) was the site of at least some of the filming of "The Sheriff and the Satellite Kid". I have never actually seen the film, but I participated in a scene where there was a parade down the main street of my town. I was basically a bystander on the sidewalk who was waving as the parade went by. I have always wanted to see the movie to not only see what the movie was all about, but to also see myself in my one and only film debut. I would appreciate any leads in how I may go about getting a copy of the film.
