Screens Story  June 15, 2001, by Marc Savlov
"...In 1986, screenwriter Bill Wittliff shot the Willie Nelson vehicle Red Headed Stranger with a predominantly Austin-based crew, but it was a couple of little pictures that came in under the radar that really shook things up and set the capital city on the path to cinematic righteousness. One of them was 1988's The Lone Star Kid ("No one's ever heard of this film," admits Copeland), directed by Happy Days alumnus Anson Williams, who -- post-Potsie -- had previously shot some movies-of-the-week in Dallas with director Ron Howard...."

"...Willie NelsonTo Lefty From Willie (Columbia/Legacy)Willie NelsonWillie & Family Live (Columbia/Legacy)Willie NelsonHoneysuckle Rose (Columbia/Legacy)Willie Nelson & Ray priceSan Antonio Rose (Columbia/Legacy) Ready for even more Willie? These four LPs from the late Seventies and 1980 simultaneously capture Nelson at his most humble and most Hollywood. After Red Headed Stranger and Stardust, the Bearded One was as much an acolyte of the old masters as ever, but now also a multiplatinum-selling superstar with the commercial clout to do whatever he pleased..."

"...She was somewhat courageous, too." While Girls Gone Wild has uncovered more than seven hours of footage of Dupré after being tipped off to her appearance in a 2003 spring break production, Newman is still scanning his archives for salvageable remnants of the recordings.

Alison Macor charts 30 years of Austin history, one film at a time
Screens Story  February 26, 2010, by Kimberley Jones
"...With a notable aside to turn-of-the-century film pioneers the Tilley brothers (turn of the 20th century, that is), Macor kicks off with Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (see excerpt "The Last Supper") and winds down with Spy Kids, all the while folding in defining events and institutions, such as the Austin Film Society's sometimes stutter-stepping transformation. (Chapter 3, "Made in Austin," covers Bill Wittliff's Western Red Headed Stranger and the founding of The Austin Chronicle; on the subject of sharing space with Willie Nelson, you'll hear no complaints from us.) Macor landed interviews with major filmmakers, including the usual suspects (Mike Judge, Quentin Tarantino, Richard Linklater) and the not-so-usual suspects (George Lucas)..."
