'Rommel's Crossroad' Wednesday

John Fuess' "Rommel's Crossroad" will be showing at the MeDiA Co-op Wednesday Nov. 7 at 7:30 pm. There is a five dollar cover at the door for those not in the film.

This is a period peice about Erwin Rommel's visit to Mississippi in 1939. In the story he befriends a black woman who is the grand-daughter of a teamster that was a friend and farm hand of Nathan Bedford Forrest, and who has a complete understanding of the times and places of interest to Rommel. Rommel used the tactics of Forrest against the British in North Africa with excellent results.

The act is true although the story is not. It stars Alisa Nave, Randy Wright, Richard Crowe, Dorv Armour, and many others. Music by William Lee Ellis and Chris Scott
