Who will we be writing about 20 years from now by Dick Kleiner Hollyw x d Nea a they laughed when Max Baer said he was going to make a movie. Why they laugh after All who was Max Baer just some big dumb joker they thought who figured since he was on a big hit to series a the Beverly Hillbillies a for a few years he was a Genius. Max Baer make a movie that a a hot one. As it turned out it was a hot one. The picture he made a Little something called a Macon county line a is just about the hottest thing in the country at the moment. It s Nice to see a Guy get the last laugh and that s what s happened to Baer. Nobody would give him a Tumble when he said he was going to make his movie they were just waiting for him to take a fall. A now a Baer says a it looks like it will be the biggest grosser in Aipa a american International pictures history. It Cost under a half million to make. So far in the four weeks it s been out ifs done five and a half million. They estimate that the total will be somewhere Between Twenty five and thirty million.

Who wants an out of work hillbilly a i did two love american styles and a movie of the week that Sall. Three jobs in two and a half years. My income dropped from $200,-000 to $2 000 a Hollywood is no place for compassion. This is a town that loves a Winner but is always delighted to help kick a Man Down the ladder once the momentum starts going that Way. So things got worse and worse for the big Man when he concluded that the Only Way they would get better was if he did it himself he decided to make his own movie. He found the True Story of a Macon county wrote the script himself produced it himself starred in it himself. And he financed it virtually himself. A i borrowed a he says. A i signed a note of it had gone Down the Drain i would have been he had never written a word before he wrote the a Macon county line script. And he admits that he had never really acted before he acted that starring role. Somehow it All worked the picture has something apparently that appeals to today s audience.
