Upcoming Screening of Footprints in the Dew:The Last Ten Tapes
For Immediate Release:
Documentary about the Unsolved Murder of E.C. Mullendore III to be shown at the First Methodist Church of Dewey, Dewey, Oklahoma
Oklahoma writer and columnist Dale R. Lewis, aka “the Original Buffalo Dale” has completed a documentary entitled Footprints in the Dew: The Last Ten Tapes. The film is based on the extensive interviews Lewis conducted for his bestselling book Footprints in the Dew: Chub Anderson and the Unsolved Mullendore Murder.
The film will be screened at First Methodist Church of Dewey in Dewey, Oklahoma on Saturday November 2, 2019 at 2PM and 6:30PM. Tickets are $6 per person and children under 11 are free. 50% of the ticket sales will be donated to the Washington County Historical Society. Doors will be open 1 hour prior to each screening and tickets will be sold at the door.
Lewis’ book is about the life of Damon “Chub” Anderson and his role in the unsolved murder of prominent Oklahoma rancher E.C. Mullendore III. On September 26, 1970 Mullendore was killed in his home on the vast Cross Bell Ranch in Osage County. Although Anderson was in the house with him at the time, he was never charged with the murder. In the following years both the murder and Anderson’s own life took on a mythic quality.
Footprints in the Dew tells the story of what really happened on the night of the murder as well as the events of Anderson’s life before and afterwards. Anderson collaborated on the project until his death in 2010.
Since its release in 2015, Footprints in the Dew has been consistently listed on the Oklahoman’s list of bestselling books in Oklahoma. Books will be available on the night of the screening and $5 from every book sale will also benefit the Washington County Historical Society.
