The producers recently shot an interview with Oscar® and Pulitzer Prize winning author, playwright and screenwriter Horton Foote. Mr. Foote grew up in Wharton Texas, just outside of Houston. As a young man, he took the train in to Houston to go to the downtown Interstate theaters, the Kirby, Metropolitan, and the Majestic to see movies and vaudeville acts. He recounted in his interview that the only time he ever saw his father cry was at a movie at the Metropolitan, Al Jolson's 1928, The Singing Fool.

Mr. Foote also worked for Interstate while he was studying acting in Dallas. He was, for one summer, an usher at the downtown Dallas Majestic Theatre.
