On Thursday, July 19th Jean Seberg's hometown of Marshalltown, Iowa was devastated by a F4 tornado which destroyed and damaged its Main Street business district, homes, historic buildings, many old trees and vehicles. Fortunately, there was no loss of life and few injuries.
Among the damaged historic buildings were the town's courthouse and the Orpheum Theater Center where Jean watched movies as a teen, and a number of her own films, including her first, Saint Joan, played to packed audiences.
We the producers of Movie Star: the Secret Lives of Jean Seberg decided to create a visual tribute to Marshalltown, Iowa using footage gathered downtown in 2012 for the documentary, and accoustic guitar music by Marshalltown native Mark Adams of Amy & Adams. The song "Going Home" was the perfect fit for the video piece. Amy & Adams' music is featured in Movie Star.
We wish the residents of Marshalltown all the very best as you rebuild your beautiful city.
Producers Kelly & Tammy Rundle and Garry McGee
