Trivia

The film required obtaining a narrow gauge railroad of Civil War vintage. "Tweetsie" was the answer. "Tweetsie" is now a tourist attraction in Blowing Rock, NC. The owners gave Unusual Films full use of the antique steam engine. In the film, "Tweetsie" changes her name twice. She appears as the "Orange and Alexandria Railroad," and again as the "Virginia Central." In the film's final scene, the train was heavily draped in black for the last journey of General "Stonewall" Jackson's body. See more »

A rare and unusual gem

Actually, I quite don't know what to think of this little film made far from Hollywood - in Carolina - and directed by a totally unknown female film maker. I know there are many of those lost and totally unknown features made all over the US. This one is not unforgettable, but it is always interesting to Watch them. The director seemed to be the head master of the company which produced this film. All her films also seem to be totally unknown. It's no fair, because this one is not a corny film, not at all. On the contrary. It speaks of the civil war between the states in an unusual way. The action sequences, final battle with many figurants and filmed in a very outstanding way, for a non Hollywood production, in terrific. The actual historical details are shown here, for example the barefeet Confederat soldiers.

The actors are not unconvincing as you may think in the first place. Anyway, these actors are more convincing than the ones used in Herschell Gordon Lewis's movies, for instance.

An awesome good surprise for me this little movie, that I highly recommend.

I hope this will be watched by other audiences.
