Fun, exciting and memorable for a low-budget film.
This movie was filmed in Tyler and Kilgore, Texas, while I was in grade school. A funny anecdote: The advance scouts had located a little town (Lindale, Texas)outside Tyler, near where I lived. It still had a turn-of-the-century Texas village, and would have been ideal for many exterior scenes. The folks in Lindale, however, got word that a movie was to be made in town, and they assessed and taxed their butts off to make improvements (paved streets, sidewalks, street lights, storefront improvements, etc.). When the movie company arrived, it looked nothing like what the scouts had seen. It was too late to pick another location, so they shot other scenes while dirt was trucked in to cover the pavement, wooden sidewalks were constructed to cover the concrete, the streetlights were removed, storefronts were covered with facades, etc. The budget was blown, but they pulled it off. I saw it several times after it was released, looking for MYSELF. I was rounded up as an extra - a member of the townies who were trying to track down the oil guys for a tarring and feathering. I'd love to see it again, but I think it must have either been scrapped, or it is in Bonita Granville Wrather's vault. Much fun.
