The Flint Tropics

After Roger & Me made Flint famous, or perhaps infamous, how do you follow up Michael Moore's tale of industrial and economic decline? With a movie about a semi-pro basketball team in Flint starring Will Ferrell, of course.

  1. I just watched this movie tonight and found your blog googling the movie. Its great. As a former MI resident myself, I appreciated the setting in 1970's Flint!

  3. Interesting blog. I am a Flint Expatriate. Attended Summerfield Elem, Longfellow JH and C-A HS. Left Flint after HS for college and never moved back. I now reside in Connecticut. I will continue to checkout your blog.

  6. I would like to know the people that were shown in the movie if they did ok later in life. I went to Cook School on Welch and loved it. Any comments. I was there from 1959 to 1964. Did any one know Jan Logston.

  7. I left Cook the year you started, moving on to Emerson followed by Longfellow. You must have been there when they filmed To touch a Child in 1962. If you haven't seen the film, you can find it on Shawn Chittle's Flint History website at http://flinthistory.com/movies/to-touch-a-child-1962/
