This movie was filmed in my area... my dad and his friends used their old cars to make the old town look realistic... the little boy sucking an ice cube (after he stole it from the ice truck) is my little brother... now a big Marine! It was a lot of fun. Larry Wilcox was talking to my dad between takes and some girls were filming them. Larry asked them if it was a "moving" camera, and when they said yes, Larry said "then we need to move" and started dancing with my dad! I was about 9 years old... So when you watch the movie, you are looking at Shoshone Idaho... still a sweet friendly sleepy little ag town! My dad is the guy in the car driving off into the sunset (symbolizing the transition of eras) while kissing the girl... not my mom!! It's been so long since I've seen the movie (which is why I surfed and found it here), that I only remember that it was a decent story but had a long slow part in the middle... it took forever for them to cross the range! I'd really like to see it again, even if just for the memories.
