"Capture of John Murrell" marker
A friend phoned me and said she remembers a movie made around 1960 which was the story of John Murrell. She said there is a poster for that movie in the visitor center in Collinwood. Next time I'm up that way, I'll stop and look for it. A few days after hearing of the poster, I recounted this story to another friend and she said "I was in that movie!". It seems that she had won a local contest as a 16 year old, and was dressed up in period clothes and appeared in the movie. Isn't it a small world. She said she had looked for years for a copy of that movie with no luck. The movie "Natchez Trace" (1960) starred Zachary Scott.
Wouldn't it be great to get a copy of that movie!
I've been told the rights were purchased by a French company and the movie is unavailable now in the states.
