Filmmakers Visit the Site of 1958 Movie Location in Western North Carolina
Filmmakers of The Expediter(www.theexpediterfilm.com) take a break from the events at The Ashville Film Festival, where The Expediter was nominated for best-supporting actress and best feature drama to explore Asheville’s rich film history. Here, film archeologists, Bob and Mike using production stills from Robert Mitchum’s 1958, classic Thunder Road have discovered a shooting location.
“Let me tell the story, I can tell it all About the mountain boy who ran illegal alcohol His daddy made the whiskey, son, he drove the load When his engine roared, they called the highway Thunder Road. Sometimes into Asheville, sometimes Memphis town The revenoors chased him but they couldn’t run him down Each time they thought they had him, his engine would explode He’d go by like they were standin’ still on that Thunder Road…”
Be sure to join us on Saturday, October 21st, 1-3 PM at the East Hampton Public Library for a screening of The Expediter followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Michael Domino. The event is FREE and open to the public
Watch the latest trailer for the independent New York film The Expediter.
Shortly after graduation from high school in 1975, eighteen-year-old Michael Romano engages in some teenage hijinks that gets him arrested in the New York City suburbs. With his plans to attend college put on hold, his father, the executive in charge of production at a large manufacturing company in Queens, takes him to work and puts him under the wing of Jake Cutter, the company’s grizzled purchasing manager whose job is to ensure the factory line never goes down. The war-weary Cutter alleviates the horrors he experienced as a young U.S. Marine during World War II with alcohol, womanizing and a work ethic that is unrivaled. At first hostile to young Michael, who he derisively refers to as Michelle despite Michael holding the unenviable position of expeditor of parts, the two slowly and cautiously develop an indelible bond.
