“River to River: Iowa’s Forgotten Highway 6” is a short, memorable movie about a long, forgotten highway. And oh, is it ever worth a little trip to see it.
This is one of the latest movies from award-earning Quad-City filmmakers Kelly and Tammy Rundle, whose other films include “Villisca: Living with a Mystery” and “Letters Home to Hero Street.” The “River to River” documentary, which was about three years in the making, was inspired by the Historic Highway 6 research and photography of David W. Darby, executive director of the Iowa U.S. Route 6 Tourist Association. (Find out more athttp://www.route6tour.com/Route6iowa.htm)
This is the tale of the two-lane road between Davenport and Council Bluffs on the nation’s longest highway that traverses more than 3,600 miles from Cape Cod to southern California. Interstate 80 is the top choice for most drivers now. Unlike the more modern Interstate 80, Highway 6 meanders through small towns with attractions that make it worthwhile to spend a little extra time.
