Jim McBride/Oregon filmmaker

November 20th, 2010 by Anne Richardson · No Comments · Lillypadder, Oregon filmmaker

New Yorker Jim McBride began as an experimental underground filmmaker in the 60’s, and was still experimenting when he came to Oregon to make Glen and Randa in 1971.  In 1983, he  made movie history by talking Richard Gere in appearing into a remake of Breathless (the above photo captures the exact moment he persuades Gere this idea isn’t totally nuts) while in 1987, he made fans of Ellen Barkin very, very happy by starring her opposite Dennis Quaid in The Big Easy.

Q: How does this system work? Why is a New Yorker an Oregon filmmaker?

A: McBride is an Oregon filmmaker because he made an Oregon film, that is, one shot within Oregon’s state lines. He is not an Oregon director  -  that label is reserved for directors who are from Oregon.

I know its hard to keep all this straight.

Shelley Plimpton, born and raised in Roseburg, appeared in Glen and Randa, giving it a second qualification as an Oregon film.

Careful examination of McBride’s filmography reveals that he is a lillypadder. Lillypadders come to Oregon to work on their careers, and leave after they have accomplished that goal. Glen and Randa was McBride’s first feature length film.
