Yes I know. I was really excited when I talked to both of them about their projected plans.

The only thing I hadn't heard of before was that Heath refused to go to
"Cowboy Camp". I thought both of them went. Everything I've read about
the movie being made has said that both Heath and Jake attended.
Wanting him to come back... before anyone notices
part of the world has not moved...since he left.

This isn't to do with BBM, but I've been trying to figure out what this movie was, mentioned in the article:

Paul Newman and his classic cohort Robert Redford were offered the roles of a gay couple in the Ď60s, but they turned it down.

[If someone has Facebook, I don't, could you maybe ask that question in the article's comment section?]

Newman was very interested in playing the coach in The Front Runner, but that never made it to the screen.

Due to it's "of the time it was written" sensibilities, and how things have progressed since, it's likely not going to happen. As a movie anyway.

That sounds vaguely familiar. Do we know if the movie was ever made with other actors instead of Newman and Redford?

So long ago, but seems like yesterday.

I can remember the first time I heard about the film, when it won the Golden Lion award.

I somehow donít feel very tempted by this - particularly after reading the poor English of the storyline.

Is one allowed to use a movie title like that without permission?

I was wondering about that too.

Is it a parody?  If so, perhaps that's allowed.

The tagline on the poster, We're all gay ...in the old-fashioned way, and the short plot-synopsis, make it sound like some anti-gay thing. The synopsis: A man finds himself alone in the mountains to ponder what happened being separated from his wife and children for years. He finds God and Jesus.

From looking up the name of the "Director/Writer/Star", John Birmingham, he seems like some kind of person like Sascha Baron Cohen, pushing comedic boundaries of taste, but I can't tell from this brief look where his sensibilities lie, but so far this is all very suspicious to me. He seems to have been born in Britain, but moved to Australia.

I think the Australian John Birmingham is a different bloke. He's odd but he's mostly a writer. He certainly doesn't come from Virginia.
