The Stagecoach Journey

FREE SCREENING Producer: Ed Fillmer Genre(s): Documentary, Local Rating: NR

A cowboy's dream becomes reality in this heartfelt local documentary chronicling a stagecoach journey from Springfield, Missouri, to Tombstone, Arizona, in 2001. Following the old transcontinental route established by the Butterfield Overland Mail Company in 1858, Rick Hamby sets out in a reconditioned stagecoach for a 1,400-mile, 63-day epic trek. The fifty-five minute film captures the camaraderie, challenges, and exhaustion facing the modern cowboys, who receive heartfelt receptions from townfolks even as they face such obstacles as freeways, deserts, and open waterways to fulfill their dream.
