Elmer Fudd Folklore: movies about folk/musicians (40) RE: Folklore: movies about folk/musicians 20 Oct 08


I interviewed one of the cameramen on "Festival Express." It has quite a history. There was much comradery and impromptu jamming on the train that didn't make it into the movie. The producers didn't pay the camera crew, so they heisted a lot of the film footage and didn't give it back until they got paid! Then the film sat in canisters for 33 years in the producer's garage, unedited and deteriorating, until after the producer died his son was able to find funding to make it into a feature-length film. Some of the film was beyond repair. We're lucky to have what we do.
