Sometimes a Great Notion

Sometimes a Great Notion was written by Ken Kesey and published in 1964. Later in 1970 the book was turned into a movie that was directed by and stars Paul Newman.
The movie follows the Stamper's, a family of  independent Oregon loggers that despite a changing industry and a striking union, continue to cut timber in order to fill their contract with the local mill.
This movie is a great watch if you can get your hands on a copy. Without giving to much away, here are a few screen shots of the flick.
Classic: Paul Newman handling a big ole McCulloch!

One of my favorites...that scene at the end in the river is one of the most gripping in all of film...
