I have the uncensored version of the movie on VHS.. some great lines, and the foot chase scene is epic. the courthouse and bancorp south on the square are also in it.
Is there a scene inside The Exchange Bank and Trust Co? If so, my late husband Jerome Orr was in that scene. He worked at the radio station KELD above the bank, and he was used as an extra.

Yes, That scene is in there. It is a fairly long one.

Wheeler/Psycho from Texas are one in the same... The latter was the re-edit by the guy who purchased rights to wheeler. Not much changes besides a few scenes refilmed and some sloppy transitions.
If you post it please let me now by emailing me at [email protected]... I had a family member who was an extra in the movie and the family would like to get a copy..

I believe the director's son Shane still lives in El Dorado - he might have a copy or get you the permission you need to burn one.

Oddly enough I lived in the Garret Mansion while the movie Wheeler was being filmed. It was my childhood home until it burnt down in a lighting storm. I was 7 or 8 years old at the time the movie was filmed. All the actors and actress' actually stayed in the house with us,John King111, Tommy Lamey, Candy Dee,and Hurschel Mays,it was very cool. I remember we had to be very quite and play outside while they were shooting. I actually have the big metal movie cases with the big movie reels inside and the box office poster signed by Tommy Lamey. also have vhs copies of origanal movie!
I also spent some time at that mansion during shooting, though I was much younger than you were at the time. I am the son of Jim Feazell, the writer/director/producer of the film. I would be interested in getting a hold of any movie reels that might exist. So far this is the only one I've ever heard of. I am interested in restoring the film to its original version. If you still have these reels, I am interested in buying them.

Can you tell us if you believe the fire was accidental? Also, can you supply any details on the Vietnamese refugee family adopted by Gracie Smith that was discovered hitch hiking out of town on the 167 bypass after being accused of stealing?

The Hideout/hideaway was awful! Married men out there hooking up with drunk crazy girls! I would not have been caught out there- but I know lots of people that did go out there. And they would always end up in trouble. Not sure if that place was in the movie Wheeler or not .

I don't think The Hideout, which at the time may have still been going under the name Phillips Drive In, made an appearance. Hill's Recreation ( with the name Hill's changed to Foster's on the sign ), Crabapple and the exterior of The Palace which was on the curve around Richard Mason's house were in the Psycho version. I have never seen the original Wheeler. The copy of Psycho from Texas full movie had been pulled from YouTube, but I just checked, and there is now a copy up which is much better visually.

Wheeler went to Crab Apple Point on Calion Lake to score some weed for him and Slick, but had some resistance from the local bikers.
Not getting the weed he so rightly needed,
he laid one dude out by cracking him in the nut sack with a pool cue before clearing out .

he should have gone to the Pirates Cove, they could have put him on the right track .
