    "Riding the Rails" video

    Discussion started by KaBar - Mar 8, 2002

    I ran across a cool VHS tape at my local library, a 72 minute film by two filmakers named Michael Uys and Lexy Lovell called "Riding the Rails." They sugar coated it a little, but it's really a super film. It's mostly interviews with old 78-year-old guys and one really neat little old lady named Peggy who were all hobo kids back in the '30s in the Great Depression. That Peggy is something else--I wish I had known her when she was a kid. It's a good movie, go check it out at your local library.

    I met the author of the companion book and also I know Guitar Whitey, a great performer and good friend. The stories are true. I have seen the results of accidents on the rails.
