Waxahachie: The Little Movie Town That Could

Field210Using PowerPoint images and film clips in a fun-filled presentation lasting about an hour, nationally known film critic Larry Ratliff focuses on the amazing number and quality of movies shot in and around Waxahachie, TX, located about 45 minutes south of Dallas.

First and foremost, of course, are the Academy Award winners:  “Places in the Heart,” “The Trip to Bountiful” and “Tender Mercies,” which won Best Actress Oscars for Sally Field and Geraldine Page and a Best Actor golden statuette for Robert Duvall.

And then there’s the little matter of “Bonnie and Clyde.”

The line between truth and fiction has become severely Mr. Magooed.  For those of you who don't know and are probably under the age of 100, that means blurred.  (Mr. Magoo, you see, was ... Oh never mind!)

So, how about some unabridged truth?
