Fried Green Tomatoes (1991):
Kathy Bates stars as an unhappy wife
trying to get her husband's attention in
this amusing and moving 1991 screen
adaptation of Fannie Flagg's novel Fried
Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe.
After befriending a lonely old woman
(Jessica Tandy), Bates hears the story
of a lifelong friendship between two
other women (Mary Stuart Masterson and
Mary-Louise Parker, seen in flashback)
who once ran a cafe in town against many
personal odds. The tale inspires Bates
to take further command over her life,
and there director Jon Avnet (Up Close
and Personal), in his first feature, has
fun with the film. Bates develops a real
attitude toward her thickheaded spouse
at home and some uppity girls in a
parking lot, but dignity is generally
the key to Avnet's approach with the
story's crucial relationships. Tandy is
a joy and clearly loves the element of
mystery attached to her character, and
Masterson and Parker are excellent in
the historical sequences.
Fried Green Tomorrows (2007):
A documentary how a town has turned from dust.
From the success of the movie that was filmed in Juliette, GA, Fried Green Tomatoes turned a
kudzu-covered ghost town into the new tourist delight of the south.
Your Juliette experience is complete as you watch southern actor Danny Vinson take a lesiurely stroll down McCracken St. with four of his friends. Not only is there a visit to the Whistle Stop Cafe, but the merchants are interviewed and they give their outlook on the history, the town, and the movie.
After a while, Danny and his friends are so consumed with the mystique of Ruth and Idgie, they become the characters of Fried Green Tomatoes and a new adventure begins, including some one getting whacked with a frying pan.
The DVD contains 2 hours of viewing pleasure; including the 45 min. official tour de town.
A Killing Affair (1986):
You remember Whistle Stop, Alabama? Six years before that it was called Parrish, West Virginia.
Filmed in 1985, this murder/mystery took over all of Juliette.
Practically every building in town becomes part of Parrish, West Virginia in 1943;
including the now Cafe, the mill, and the Winery.
The unspoiler plot:
A woman in West Virginia takes in a drifter while her husband is away.
Her preacher brother then begins snooping into her life.
Will this drifter be her lover or killer?
