Filming of "El Camino Olive Trail" TV
Documentary at TTM, August 25, 2010
Bill Millet, the producer / director / writer of "El Camino Olive Trail," filmed some scenes at TTM for a PBS documentary on the coming of age of olive production in southern USA. Railroads played a pivotal role in the not always easy conversion of ranch land into agricultural production in Dimmit and Zavala Counties in the early 20th century. Several TTM volunteers played characters in a tense meeting concerning the struggling fortunes of the Asherton Land & Irrigation Company and its associated railroad, the Asherton & Gulf. This was staged in the Santa Fe business car along with other actors brought in by the producer. Many other volunteers dressed up in period clothing for an evening shoot on what was a brutally hot day. Members of the local San Antonio Ford Model T club, the "T Fords of Texas," brought in their own cars to recreate what land developers did, which was to transport would be buyers from the train to their new farms. Many communities have images of developers and an array of as many cars as possible to demonstrate the wealth to be found in the new community.
