You may not be aware of this, but Dallas, the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and the surrounding area -- especially down in Waxahachie -- have hosted movie production companies that have turned out some impressive classics, an infamous bank robbery duo yarn based on truth and a respected Kennedy assassination thriller.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg. 

In this presentation enhanced with PowerPoint images and film clips lasting a little over an hour, Larry focuses on the fun-filled "State Fair," the 1967 bullet-riddled thriller "Bonnie and Clyde" and more.
 
Movie-making brought director Oliver Stone and star Kevin Costner to the area.  The Dallas Cowboys were spoofed a little here, and Sally Field learned that we like her, we like her in a movie she starred in here.

Open Mic Night.  Call it the longest three minutes in show business; an eternity for some, a breeze for the gifted few.  All the great ones started this way somewhere.  One-liners and stories running through their minds over and over or scribbled on notepads as they nervously await their turn.
