Georgia town is setting for new movie


The east Georgia city of Crawfordville will provide a backdrop for an upcoming Robert Duvall movie, a 1930s drama called "Get Low."

The seat of Taliaferro County was chosen because its appearance has changed little in 70 years, with no fast-food chains marring the landscape.

Bob Kendrick, president of the Crawfordville Historial Society and the town's Hollywood liaison, says he was born there in 1930, "and things are pretty much like they've always been."

Kendrick says the movie is about an eccentric old man who wonders if the town would give him a decent burial, "So he decides to stage a mock funeral."

The film is being produced by The Zanuck Company and is co-written and directed by Oscar-winning cinematographer Aaron Schneider.
