Sometimes A Great Movie
Author Matt Love once heard a rumor that, during the filming of Sometimes a Great Notion in 1971, actor and director Paul Newman walked into a Toledo, Oregon bar and sawed the legs off a pool table with a chainsaw. That story was the genesis of this book, an exploration of Newman, Ken Kesey, and the filming of Sometimes a Great Notion.

I remember when an episode of Falcon Crest was filmed on the Oregon Coast. I wish I'd been around when the cast of Sometimes A Great Notion came to town instead. Reading these great stories and anecdotes from local residents is the next best thing.

When filming Sometimes a Great Notion on the Oregon Coast, which local beer did Paul Newman consider to be 'the closes substitute' for his beloved Coors?
