Sometimes a Great Movie: Paul Newman, Ken Kesey and the Filming of the Great Oregon Novel

It's a fascinating and entertaining chapter of Oregon’s cultural history.  In June 1970, the biggest movie star in the world traveled to the Oregon Coast to film an epic novel about a defiant family of loggers written by a home grown counterculture hero. The star was Paul Newman. The author was Ken Kesey. The story was "Sometimes a Great Notion."   Matt Love, author of the new book, Sometimes a Great Movie: Paul Newman, Ken Kesey and the Filming of the Great Oregon Novel, joined us to share stories from the set, along with rare home movies taken by coastal residents.
