I was looking for the movie made 1967 or 1968 titled The Great Swamp. I stared in the movie to help preserve the swamp from development. The swamp was targeted for an airport. Do you know where I can get a copy of that movie? Thanks

Small farming operations such as these became uneconomical and gradually disappeared. Consequently, much of the cleared upland returned to woods and the lower flat areas reverted to swampland. Various modern uses have been planned for Great Swamp: flood control in the 1920s; drainage projects in the 1930s; and a jet airport proposal in 1959.
It was the threat of the jetport which enabled the Great Swamp Committee of the North American Wildlife Foundation to muster the aid of a significant number of volunteers. This effort raised more than a million dollars to purchase nearly 3,000 acres which were donated to the Department of the Interior. These acres formed the nucleus of the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. Through the years, additional acres have been added to the original tract
I don't know anything about the movie, though.

Hey Jack! How are you doing? I was wondering the same thing about that movie you made. It shown in one of the classes we had together at Madison Junior. I don't know if you remember me, but I remember that movie and I sometimes think about it. What happened to the movie?

people like to murder in swampy areas so the bodies won't be found for a while.
