MAY 12, 2006 - Posted at 11:51 a.m. CST

 

JONESBORO, AR - Fifty years ago this summer, the landmark film "A Face in the Crowd" was filmed in Piggott, using many Region 8 residents as extras.  The editor of ASU alumni publications is seeking ASU alumni who wish to share memories of being part of the filming.

Dr. Nancy Hendricks, editor of the alumni magazine, is planning a feature story to commemorate the movie's 50th anniversary.  The movie was shot in Piggott in August 1956.

Anyone who attended ASU and was involved with the filming is encouraged to contact Hendricks to share their memories and photos, if availaible. 

Hendricks can be reached by phone at 870-972-2586, or e-mail at nhendricks@astate.edu.
