The nerds crew sat down with Cajuns big man Charlie English for the film and came away with some good tales of the Shipley boys. I must admit i was a bit surprised when i opened the door and was confronted with Charlie’s towing stature.
Once Charlie sat down and we began rolling the country boy was right as rain and the one liners were coming at us from every angle. Charlie was a member of the Cajuns squad in the mid sixties and gave us some first hand insight into Beryl’s side line antics as well as the transition from an all white team to the change integration would bring. After it was all over we came away with some great material for the film.
