The film, Footprints in the Dew: The Last Ten Tapes, is based on the extensive interviews
Lewis conducted for his bestselling book Footprints in the Dew: Chub Anderson and the
Unsolved Mullendore Murder.
The film will be screened at the historic Coleman Theatre at
7 p.m. Sept. 26. Tickets are $10 per person. According to Shannon Duhon,
managing director of the Coleman Theatre, 50 percent of the ticket sales will
be donated to the theatre.
“We showed this documentary in January and the response was
incredible,” Duhon said. “We had more than 400 people brave the ice and snow
that evening to attending the showing. We have received numerous calls from
those who were unable to attend that showing asking if we would show it again.”
The film, according to Duhon, has improved since it was shown
“The original version of the documentary had sound quality
issues,” Duhon said. “There were portions of the film, especially the
interviews with ‘Chubb’ Anderson, that were hard to follow. The sound issues
have since been addressed, making it much easier to understand what is being
“Better sound quality and it being the anniversary of the
murder are big reasons why we decided to bring the film back to the Coleman,”
Duhon said. “We also are pretty confident that we will not have to deal with
snow and ice in September.”
Lewis’ book is about the life of Damon “Chub” Anderson and
his role in the unsolved murder of Mullendore.
On Sept. 26, 1970, Mullendore was killed in his home on the
vast Cross Bell Ranch in Osage County. Although Anderson was in the house with
him at the time, he was never charged with the murder. In the following years,
both the murder and Anderson’s own life took on a mythic quality.
Footprints in the Dew tells the story of what really happened on the night
of the murder as well as the events of Anderson’s life before and afterwards.
Anderson collaborated on the project until his death in 2010.
Since its release in 2015, Footprints in the Dew has
been consistently listed at No. 1 on The
Oklahoman’s list of bestselling books in Oklahoma. Books will be available
on the night of the screening and may also be ordered at www.originalbuffalodale.com.
