I just watched a documentary about the Whites of Boone County.
Interesting family.
I have to say, I like the way Jesco dances.

yeah he's something. My buddy is a lawyer and owner of a restaurant in Boone County (it used to be a DQ) and he has some really interesting stories about that family.

There was a sequel to the Dancing Outlaw that, in part, followed Jesco out to Hollywood where he had a guest spot on Roseanne back in the day. The sequel wasn't as good.

I think Hank III stayed with Jesco for a week or so one time. If interested, you can probably find footage of that on youtube, as well.

Was it the original Dancing Outlaw film from many years ago, or was it this newer one:

The Wild And Wonderful Whites of West Virginia: Official Site

I haven't seen the new one yet--I'm looking forward to it. That family is grade-A nuts.

It was the "Wild and Wonderful Whites. I'll have to look for the "Dancing Outlaw.
I had a friend who lives Charleston, who told me a few stories about Boone County and the folks who live there, this film confirmed what she said. I wonder if she knows the Whites.

I heard the new one was produced by Johnny Knoxville. Anyone know if that's true?
