Collins to work toward increasing visitation to Arkansas by groups and promoting the state's appeal
The film, a semi-autobiographical take on Bridges' experience growing up gay in a small town and being destroyed by the news of Dean's death, gave a lot of big-wheel names some of their earliest film roles, including Dennis Quaid, Tom Hulce and Lisa Blount. The (somewhat cheesy 1970's) trailer is above.
A great read about a mostly-unsung Arkansas director. Check it out.
