Egg Shells featured at SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas
The good news is the print is not lost. Thanks to Louis Black a print has been located. The film is being remastered and will presented by Tobe Hooper at this year's SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas. It will show at the Alamo Draft House on March 17th at 7pm.
Most people think that Texas ChainSaw Massacre was Tobe's first film and few have heard about Egg Shells. Tobe shot the film right here in Austin, Texas, and the hippie wedding was actually located in a park next to the Court House.
1969 was the most amazing year, and also the year I graduated high school. I grew up around Woodstock, New York, and lived the hippie error, the Beatles, the Woodstock Music Festival, landing on the moon, etc., etc. I am really looking forward to seeing the film. That was an amazing time in this country, and I am looking forward to stepping back in time. Can't wait to see the movie. I hope it comes out on DVD.
