    The Movie... Paris Texas

    The movie "Paris, Texas" was banned in the city of Paris, Texas shortly after its box office release in 1984. I'm not really sure why. The film itself was filmed in Waxahachie not Paris. The movie was the Winner of the Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 1984 and tells the haunting story of an amnesiac's struggle to rebuild his shattered life. Sam Shepard wrote the screenplay. Paris Texas was put on the map.

    While visiting relatives, Davey Crocket slept under a tree which is located on Clarksville Street. He wrote in a letter to his wife that he had "found Paradise" and intended to relocated his family to this area. Unfortunately, he was then sent to the Alamo, where he lost his life fighting for Texas' independence.
