The Higden Man
THE HIGDEN MAN is a story about two small-town grifters trying to convince Heber Springs, Arkansas landowners to sell their lakefront property, running the story that the local dam will soon raise the water level and flood surrounding property. Starring John Barnum and Stephen W. Gillard (RELEASE THE HEAD), with music from Charlotte Taylor and Gypsy Rain, and Paul Baker, the movie is instructive about how easily people can be duped by a loquacious lawyer. Life stories about old boyfriends, odd accidents, cancer-causing smoking, motel living, etc. paint a picture of rural Arkansas as it moves quietly into the 21st century.
