    Just saw that. He was one of the stars of Easy Rider. Most of the final moments of that movie were filmed in and around Morgan City and Franklin, and they are having a biker gathering and celebration of the movie in Franklin next weekend.

    I think the cafe where some rednecks were making fun of them was in Morganza. At least I have seen a cafe that looked just like rhe one in the movie.

    I've never seen the whole thing. Actually, I've never seen it at all. I'd just heard about how parts of it were filmed around here, and in particular about where they're crossing a bridge but they shot them riding in the wrong direction if they were riding to New Orleans. Finally went and searched it a few months ago and saw what I'd been hearing about.
