Plumm Press Release.doc‘A Plumm Summer’ to have free screening April 3 at MSU

The screenwriter and director of photography of the film “A Plumm Summer,” which was filmed in Bozeman and Livingston in 2006, will answer questions following a free screening of the film scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 3, at the Montana State University Strand Union’s Procrastinator Theater.

T.J. Lynch, an MSU graduate and a current adjunct professor of screenwriting at the MSU School of Film and Photography, will be at the screening as will Mark Vargo, an MSU graduate who was director of photography. A few members of the cast and crew will also be on hand for the question and answer session.

“A Plumm Summer,” which starred Henry Winkler, Jeff Daniels and William Baldwin, had a limited theatrical release in 2008.

Lynch based his screenplay on an actual event that happened in Billings in the mid-60’s in which ‘Froggy Doo,’ the highly popular string-puppet mascot of a local kiddies show, was kidnapped and held for ransom. The film is a family-friendly mystery about two brothers who embark on an adventure-filled investigative odyssey to solve the “frognapping.”

Most of the film’s crew members were Montana residents, many alumni of MSU’s School of Film and Photography. ASMSU Films Committee, in association with the MSU School of Film and Photography present the screening of the 99-minute film, which is rated PG for mild language.
