If Footmen Tire You, What Will Horses Do?

  • Intro by Harvey Fenton
  • Virtual Q&A with Jimmy McDonough

Thu 16 Nov 14:50

Based on the preachings of Reverend Estus W. Pirkle, this film warns what will happen to America if the citizens do not give up their depraved ways and turn to God and Jesus for salvation. Communist infiltrators, the “footmen”, will pave the way for an all-out invasion by weakening our will through TV, dance, rock music and alcohol. Only by putting their faith in the Bible where it belongs, says Rev. Pirkle, can America resist the coming Red Menace.

Ron Ormond was a prolific drive-in filmmaker who was turning out westerns and quickie exploitation movies during the 50s and 60s. After miraculously surviving a plane crash, he turned to God and teamed up with a Mississippi Evangelist to put his exploitation skills to new use – promoting Christianity through outrageous shock tactics in the only way he knew how.

FAB Press’ Harvey Fenton will introduce the screening, followed by a live video Q&A with Jimmy McDonough, author of The Exotic Ones – That Fabulous Film-Making Family from Music City, USA – The Ormonds.
