Margarine Wars, a New Movie Release From DB Rich Productions LLC
(PRWEB) August 23, 2011
DB Rich Productions LLC plans on releasing a new comedy in December 2011 called Margarine Wars.
There are many things human beings fight over. But foodstuffs, and condiments, at that? In the middle-late sixties in Wisconsin there was an unlikely clash of condiment titans which caused a subtly inane, but furious fight in the hinterlands of these United States… over butter and margarine.
An Afro-Jew by the name of Howard Schmear (Ron G) of New York decides to up and leave his home for the promised lands of San Fransisco. To add a healthy dose of folly to the mix, he ends up crashing his VW Hippy bus in a small conservative town in the middle of Wisconsin. Now that he is stranded in a small Wisconsin dairy town with a broken-down bus, and no money for repair, Howard must take on what work he can get in order to get his ride fixed and get out of town. To make matters more interesting for Howard, it is during the summer of love in 1967 and he himself is a man on a mission to be a free-spirited hippy.
Although ignorant at first of all things mid-western and dairy related, Howard begins a chain reaction that no one would have ever thought a New Yorker could stir up in this part of the country. As luck would have it, Howard is able to work for Melvin [Michael Spellman], the man who caused the accident of his Hippy bus. Upon working for Melvin, Howard discovers a guilty pleasure of the town which just may make him rich. This illegal, yet pursued substance, is margarine. There are many people who just may take a large offense to the idea of margarine consumption on the rise in this small, butter producing town of Butterfield.
While working his way around town peddling his prized asset, all the while duping Melvin, his employer, we see a plethora a small town folks who often pepper small mid-western towns and give them its certain quirkiness. Viewers will meet the old and gruff grandpa, tough, but loving in Grandpa Griswold (Robert Loggia). Also, there is the unceasingly loving old grandmother (Doris Roberts) who would never suspect anything evil to be done under her nose to be happening; especially when it is something her own family may, or may not, be involved in. Other types are met around town as well, such as the town’s mechanic, law enforcement officers and farming folk from the area. The characters are topped off by the counter-culture of the town, seen in Starshine (Bianca Keitel). Also, we meet a hard working reporter hot on Howard’s trail of fatty insubordination, Katie Trumbull (Ellen Muth).
To top it all there is a twist of a romantic flavor amidst the condiments, manhunts and road blocks. Although trying to evade the questioning mind of Katie Trumbull and her pen stroke, Howard seemingly falls victim to her intelligent charm. At that point, the questions for Howard only multiply until they reach their inevitable, if not unhealthy, head.
The movie is not only a comedic gesture toward the many strange mannerisms of small town USA. It is also a close, comedic examination of laws created to define nothing and everything at the same time. To serve many or few, all or none, depending on many factors, but remaining all-too-general nonetheless so the meanings may be changed at any time.
