Stacy Down South

Stacy’s in Alabama filming “Honeydripper”, written and directed by John Sayles (Lonestar, Sunshine State), co-starring Danny Glover, Charles Dutton, Albert Hall, and Mary Steenbergen. The story depicts the transition from the blues to rock and roll in 1950 rural Alabama. Due for release in 2007.

Sherriff Pugh loves Ty’s (Danny Glover) wife’s fried chicken and allows a punished field worker, Sonny, to come out of the cotton fields in order to join Ty’s band (Sonny’s a hot guitar player) at the Honeydripper, in exchange for Delilah’s fried chicken sandwiches. (The car, by the way, was part of the Eisenhower Administration Staff back in the Fifties!)
