If you claim to have sold this movie 30 years ago, then why does it show your 22 on your profile?

David wasn't a bad singer. He & his brother all play/ed guitar too. I thought he was excellent in the movie "Bound for Glory" (1976), in his portrayal of Woody Guthrie. David well be missed.

i literally live 6 or 7 minutes from Drury. Its a ghost town now (if it wasnt already when this film was made). hardly anyone lives there, but alot of people fish at the dam. A horse from the merry go round is in a white museum on the corner, across the street, west of the Sumner County Courthouse in Wellington K.S. in one of the upper floors if they havent gotten rid of it. it has a sign next to it talking about what it was from.

Dan Haggerty (of Grizzly Adams fame) had a small part and did the set design, primarily the restoration of the carousel. He also provide the "fighting" dog, Masagwa, who appears credited, as does Carradine's dog, Buffalo.One day Carradine was trying to decide which type-style to use for "Around" (which is what the movie was tentatively called) he settle on one called "Americana" and decided that that should be the name of the movie as well.

DC and Barbara Hershey first heard of the "Merry-go-round" story from Richard Carr while they were making "Heaven With A Gun". DC said that he became obsessed with the idea of making it a film. He talked Carr into writing the screenplay and cast his friends, family members and some town folks in it. The old man at the store is BH's father and he died before they had filmed the final scenes.

You did a fantastic job on this trailer. It is perfect. Since I saw your trailer I bought this movie on VHS and have seen it a couple of times and I have read DC's Endless Highway. There is a good article online call "Carradine's Americana was one from the heart". I tried posting the link, but it did not post. If you are looking for more information on it, that article has some, so do a search. It is a little heart breaking. I wish DC could have seen your trailer. He would have loved it.
