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!
How did you see this movie? It's not out until February?
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.
Glad you like it, ctsparty. If you have any Carmen news, feel free to pass it along.

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.
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/
Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
