Many of you know that I wrote a documentary movie several years ago. Tonight the Director gave me a call to tell me he finally created a website. I thought some of you might be interested in seeing the trailer to the movie. http://forgottengunfighters.com/ I won 3 awards for this documentary which was supposed to be a part of a series of 13 documentaries about Forgotten Gunfighters. That's why at the end you see it say "Episode 1." Unfortunately this is the only one that got filmed and aired on TV. I was commissioned to write 7 of the 13 episodes. Also in this opening scene I play two parts, but you can't see my face because I am so far down the street. Bear with me and I will tell you about the people you see in this trailer. At 5 seconds in you see a man in a derby loading a wagon. That is Carlos and he is the Producer of this film. Very funny guy. I did the Benny Hill trick where you stand next to someone and act like they grabbed your butt. I did it to him and slapped his face lightly. He thought that was hysterical. He had me doing it to everyone. He tried to get me to do it to our waitress in the fancy Italian restaurant he took everyone to on the last day of filming. He was from Spain and didn't speak much English so I translated for him a lot. At 15 seconds in you see the camera pan down and 2 girls walking on a sidewalk. They are my nieces, Andrea and Lauren. At 21 seconds in you see them pass two boys playing marbles in the street. Those boys are their twin brothers, and my nephews Alec and Sean. Those 2 boys just won their 2nd State Championship in football here in Arizona. They are Juniors. Next year they go for the hat trick. In the background as they pass the boys you see a man crossing the street. That is me as the Mayor. You see a cowboy with white sleeves cross towards me and tip his hat to me. I actually said to him, "there are new whores at the cat house" as we passed. He laughed. I got in trouble for that. I am in that shot for about 9 seconds or so. Then at 38 seconds into the scene you see two cowboys crossing the street. I am the one furthest away in the lighter colored clothes. You don't see it, but when the guy playing Edwin Tewksbury yells "Tom" we ran off the street. I said to the other cowboy, "I think we nailed that scene." He started laughing and the sound guy caught it. Next thing I know the director is yelling what we were laughing at. I yelled back that the other cowboy had farted. I got in trouble for that too. One last thing about that scene. I pitched a fit when they told me what scene they were filming. In real life this murder did not happen on a town street and there was no one else around. The Director didn't care. I wanted it to be as authentic as possible. I lost the argument because they had already paid for a street scene. Oh, almost forgot. If you look at the horse in front of the wagon at 28 seconds into the scene, he had turned around backwards. Mel Gibson had actually ridden that horse in one of the scenes in "Braveheart." At 40 seconds you see him start to turn around again. I was pissed off about that. PETA would not allow the horse to actually be harnessed to the wagon. I have no idea why. No one could keep him calm, so he kind of goofs up the scene. The Wrangler who drives the wagon down the street at 28 seconds in and passes me as the Mayor, said to me, "that horse has made more money in the movies than you have." I replied, "so has Sylvester Stallone. I don't like him either." He laughed and gave me his Stuntman's Association jacket. The Key Grips guy offered me 500 bucks for that jacket. I told him to pound sand. In case there are any animal lovers, I later made peace with that horse by feeding him apples and carrots. For the entire rest of the filming if that horse saw me he expected treats. I got in trouble for that too. At 57 seconds in you see a cowboy shot and the squib goes off. You actually see the fake blood hit the camera lens if you look close. I have a story about that scene that I am proud of but won't share it here right now. At 1:12 you see a gunfighter throw back his coat and draw his guns. He actually has had a little success in a few films after doing this one. He and his younger brother were both in the film. Really nice guys. If anyone has any questions please feel free to ask. I think Brainpaint is the only one on the forum who has actually seen this film. I'm proud of it. I re-wrote it as a full length feature film with dialogue. I have had 3 chances to sell it but it hasn't been bought yet. I am going to edit it and keep trying. I hope you'll wish me luck. It is a fascinating story that very few people have ever heard of.
