Sunday Cinema – “Comback, Jimmy Dean”

Since February has been traditionally known as the month of “love”, we thought we would share some obscure movies having to do with love…

“Come Back to the Five & Dime Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean” isn’t about the begging for the return of pork sausage products. Rather it revolves around the 20th anniversary of James Dean’s death and the small fan club in McCarthy, Texas. Instead of what intended to be a celebration of the life and tragic death of the movie star, it becomes a reflection of the last 20 years in each of the members’ lives.

Coming out in 1982, it had a few notable stars such as Cher (who had a few 1980’s movie roles), Karen Black (“Mama Firefly” from “House of a Thousand Corpses), & a youngish Kathy Bates before her breakout role in “Misery”.

Someone was kind enough to share this movie online for others to enjoy!
