in the summer of 1970, out on the central Oregon coast, Paul Newman and company filmed a cinematic adaptation of Ken Kesey's epic 1964 novel, sometimes a great notion. Matt Love's new book (and the final installment in his Newport trilogy), sometimes a great movie, chronicles the film's production with an array of first-person accounts, photographs, and newspaper clippings of the time. a large portion of the book is composed of these local stories wherein coastal residents recall their interactions with actors and crew alike, providing a very personal, behind-the-scenes glimpse into the effects of movie making on a community.
