Documentary on Mullendore murder shows tonight at Poncan Theatre
Beverly Bryant - November 17, 2016 10:27 am
“Footprints in the Dew: The Last Ten Tapes,” airs at 7 p.m. Nov. 17 at The Poncan Theatre. The documentary by Oklahoma writer Dale R. Lewis is based on interviews Lewis conducted for his book “Footprints in the Dew: Chub Anderson and the Unsolved Mullendore Murder.”
The documentary includes never-before-seen footage of key characters in the case, including Chub Anderson.
Tickets are $12 per person and will be sold at the door.
The book is about the life of Damon “Chub” Anderson and his role in the unsolved murder of prominent Oklahoma rancher E.C. Mullendore III.
On Sept. 26, 1970, Mullendore was killed in his home on the Cross Bell Ranch in Osage County. Although Anderson was in the house with him at the time, he was never charged with 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 the night of the murder as well as the events of Anderson’s life before and afterward. Anderson collaborated on the project until his death in 2010.
The book can be purchased at Brace Books in Ponca City or at www.originalbuffalodale.com. Books will be available at the screening.
