Missing footage

Hi. Over the years Dead River Rough Cut has gone through many incarnations. Once it was 90 minutes and then it was 30 minutes. Now it is 60 minutes.
Unfortunately, Richard and I have lost some important footage that just may be on an old VHS tape somewhere. Specifically, we're looking for a scene where Bob complains that the police will no longer allow him to live in his car. There is also a scene where Bob compares politicians in Washington to rats in his basement, and you know what Bob would do to Rats in his basement.
If by some chance you have this material or anything else you consider noteworthy, then please let me know. Thanks. Stu

Stu,
I find these fellas interesting. Sure would be nice to see any additional footage.

The vehicle that you refer to, was called a "doodlebug" by Walt and Bob. Walt built it, and it was powered by a VW engine.

I recently watched the movie and was moved by several scenes. I've known people in rural Maine like Bob and Walter all my life, several in my own family. Those guys are exactly like my great uncles were, when they came back from WW2, and worked in the woods hunting and trapping. Not quite right in the head, yet resourceful and interesting.

Is this anything like Brokeback Mountain?

Dead River Rough Cut is nothing like Brokeback Mountain.

I love this film - one of the most astonishing documents of life in Western Maine ever made - I am not sure it is in any way typical - those guys are unique specimens, but it's a remarkable film. And they are remarkable people. Glad it exists.

Some have asked if the latest incarnation of DRRC is available that includes music from the Gawler Family and Perpetual e-Motion is available. The answer is yes. You can purchase or stream the movie from our website. www.deadriverroughcut.com

Thank for all the interest shown,
Stu and Rich

One of my alltime favorites! I knew Bob and miss his story telling. I guide in the area and recognize several of the locations filmed, but not so sure about a few.... Would it be be possible to interview you or could you post pins on google earth or something similar? This film IMHO needs to be preserved with as much supplmental info as possible!

Hi Rod,
Never posted "pins," but you can interview me if you like. It's been a long time, although Richard and I do remember some of the locations.
