Though not technically a Western, the picture, with an early-ThirtiesWest Virginia setting, had all of a Western's action and plotsituations… Once more, Andrew V. McLaglen directed Stewart in anambivalent, morally reprehensible characterization… In an uneasy blend of melodramatic themes, S...
I had quite low expectations for this little known film, since I saw itwasdirected by the usually awful Andrew V. McLaglen, who directed the worstmovies of the late John Wayne and the larger-than-life MST3K classic"Mitchell". However, I was pleasantly surprised with this fun story ofthreeex-convicts...
I was 10 years old when Fools Parade was filmed in my hometown ofMoundsville, West Virginia, and I remember vividly all of theexcitement we felt as we observed the actors at work in variouslocations. Kurt Russell couldn't go anywhere without a crowd of adoringyoung females screaming for his attentio...
It has been since the early 70's and as a young teenager since I haveseen this movie, but will always remember it and be in my heart also.You see I was born in W. Virgina at the location this movie was filmed(at least parts of it). Without taking from a great movie and greatstars in it (Jimmy can do...
It was Stewart's most compelling role when I saw it as an 11 year oldboy. The idea that an old released convict explosives expert could havea glass eye and $25000 that George Kennedy (Doc Council) wanted tosteal from him was a simple setup but really caught my attention.Stewart was the kind of old m...
My Dad grew up in WV and took my brother and I to see this movie at thetheater when it came out in 1971. It was a great film! I have waitedfor 35 years to see it again, with no luck.The beginning of the movie was set and filmed in Moundsville, WV in theearly 30s. Jimmy Stewart played a character wit...
I too have been waiting for my chance to see this little gem again. Itook a date to see this movie in the theater in 1971. I was in highschool at the time and happy to be going on a date. Half way throughthe movie, just as I got the nerve to put my arm around my date and getcomfortable, a severe sto...
I haven't seen this movie for at least fifteen years, but have neverforgotten it...if it were released on video I'd probably buy severalcopies for friends, because it is such a good story to start with, andso well-done as a movie. James Stewart, George Kennedy, and KurtRussell give memorable perform...
In this superb but little known 1971 film starring Jimmy Stewart,KurtRussell playing ex-convicts trying to cash a check in a corrupt town thatwon't let them.Based on the book "Fools Parade" by Davis Grubb whose otherbook"Night of the Hunter" was also made into a movie 1955-starring RobertMitchum,She...
If you've found your way to these comments then know that you've foundin me a true fan of this film. I got here in an attempt to find asource for buying this film. Alas, it was not to be! The 1971 moviefeatures great dramatic performances by James Stewart, Strother Martin,George Kennedy and Kurt Rus...
This film: Starts off, Typical STEWART- The very beginning of this filmis almost Hitchcock-ian.Stewart is a released convict who has saved $25,000 over the 40 yearsof his imprisonment. A "Murderer," he is accompanied by a "Bank Robber"Strother Martin and "Rapist" - A teenage Kurt Russel.The year is ...
The plot is simple: 3 convicts have done their time and are beingreleased from prison. Mattie Appleyard (James Stewart) has saved alarge sum of money while behind bars and plans to open a small storewith his two compatriots. However, we know from the very first scenethat prison authority 'Doc' Counc...
Fools' Parade (also known as Dynamite Man from Glory Jail) is directedby Andrew McLaglen and stars James Stewart, George Kennedy, KurtRussell, and Strother Martin. It's based on the novel of the same nameby Davis Grubb with a screenplay by James Lee Barrett. Harry StradlingJr. photographs on locatio...
I've seen some references state that Anne Baxter didn't like her ownperformance and had the ability to block distribution. Her vanitypretty much assured that the city of Moundsville would lose a rarelifeline to drag itself out of poverty oblivion. It must have been aterrible let-down at the time bec...
This great movie was made in my home town. During the late 1970s I wasa newspaper reporter at The Moundsville Daily Echo. Everyone was stilltalking about that big event. That is my only claim to fame. The entiretown of Moundsville was used as extras; some paid, but most unpaid. Thefilming of the mov...
After doing about four or five straight westerns, James Stewartobviously wanted a change of pace, so he starred in this Depression erafilm about a man just released from prison and ready to cash a checkfor $25,000.00. This is the equivalent of 40 years of working in theprison mines as convict labor ...
Splendid film! :) I've been looking for it off & on for more than 30years. Seems to be unavailable in VHS or DVD :(! In Feb 1973, I was aprojectionist in Texas & showed it to troops while on maneuvers at FortHood. I can remember specifically because of an ice storm & my wife'sbirthday! The anguish o...
Interesting story set in Great Depression with tension , intrigue ,some violence but also amusement and too many moments to be takenseriously . Glory, W.Va., 1935. It wasn't exactly a parade . It wasn'ta time for celebration. It was a time to run for your life. When a trio( Stewart ,Strother Martin ...
I grew up in Moundsville W.Va. where the movie was filmed and got towatch many of the areas they filmed, i was able to get severalsignatures from the actors, Jimmy Stewart, Struther Martin and GeorgeKennedy. I never got to meet Kurt Russell. It was a really good movie,not Oscar material, but very en...
As others who have reviewed "Fool's Parade," I am deeply regretful thatit has never made it to VC or DVD, because it is a total gem! It waslast run on television more years ago than I can remember, but it musthave been before the VCR came along or I should have taped it in aminute. As a West Virgini...
I to wish this movie was available on DVD or VHS.....can't even get itfrom video stores etc. There is however another excellent movie fromthis author available, "Night of the Hunter" excellent also. I alsolived in Moundsville when they were filming this move (lets not talkabout how My BFF and I trie...
Probably the most memorable roles for Jimmy Stewart and George Kennedyrespectively. Set in northern Kentucky in the depths of the GreatDepression, it is the story of three parolees who are planning to starta new life, and the efforts of town and prison officials to stop them.Contains some of the fun...
hooray!!!!at last I have the name of the film that I have beensearching for for years this being Fools Parade I was starting to thinki had imagined it as no-one knew of the film with the late great JimmyStewart and his glass eye.Question though can anyone tell me PLEASEwhat the eye was called?? I kn...
Watched this movie twice last night, back-to-back on "antenna TV," andwould have watched it a third time to get every nuance. It's finallybeing shown in the public airwaves--would sure like to have my own copyand reading the book would be a treat. I love the symbolism in themovie: Stewart's characte...
In one of my earlier reviews I stated that although James Stewart mayoccasionally have played morally ambiguous, conflicted characters,especially in the Westerns he made with Anthony Mann in the fifties, Icould not recall him ever playing an outright villain. At first sightit seems that this film is...
