This is a promotional short film for _The Moonshine War (1970)_ . It shows filming on location in an unidentified rural setting, beginning with the arrival of the large MGM equipment trucks. The narrator, who says he is one of the local residents, provides commentary as we see two car chases filmed. The film's director and five of main actors are shown at work. Written by

Fair promotional piece from MGM meant to shine the spotlight on their upcoming film THE MOONSHINE WAR, which as the title suggests is about prohibition and the mountain men who were making illegal alcohol. This promotional short runs just 7-minutes and features a "redneck" talking about the day Hollywood came to his small town. He narrates the film as we see them shooting a couple sequences for the film. One such scene has a car going down a hill and landing in a creek. Another scene features Richard Widmark about to get into a gun battle. We see the director of the film setting up a couple shots and finally there's another action scene. Overall this short is decent enough but I think it fails in its main goal, which was of course to try and build up interest in the film. By watching this short it certainly didn't make me want to seek out the film and the way this here was presented wasn't nearly as cute or as charming as I'm sure they were hoping.
