"Over the course of eight years, director [Tony] Philputt has tracked
down nearly everyone involved in the Ledge's career (including T Bone
Burnett, Joe Ely, Butch Hancock, and Jimmie Dale Gilmore), crafting
this funny, affectionate tribute to the quirky but charming, screaming
and wheezing songster." -- Film Center blurb
Tony Philputt will be in attendance at the first screening (on 8/29).
See you there, maybe.
The Gene Siskel Film Center is at 164 N. State Street in Chicago.
