New Info about Matthew Burrill (Romey)
Hi everyone! I've got new (well, new to me, anyway) and exciting news about one of the key actors in this wonderful film.
My brother and sister-in-law were in Asheville, NC recently and stopped at a restaurant call The Fiddlin' Pig. Julie, my sister-in-law, started talking to one of the owners and mentioned the fact one of my favorite movies was made in that area back in the 70's. The owner (woman) asked which movie it was and Julie told her it was WTLB. The woman had a huge grin on her face and said something along the lines that her husband was the one who played Romey!
Julie immediately went outside and called me on her cell phone...to no avail. I wasn't home! But my husband gave me the message when I did get there. I about died! I've always wanted to meet one of the four children and I had a crush on Romey anyway when I was a young girl.
I won't bore you with anything else but they do have a website you can go on to see all about their restaurant including directions, menu, entertainment, etc. Go to thefiddlinpig.com
FYI - there are pictures of Matthew and his wife and daughters. His one daughter (the dark-haired one) looks just like him, IMO.
