Movies: Pasghetti Western

Gold diggers. Bandits. A ranch on the brink of despair. The debut feature film from Myra and Jim Hudson has all the trappings of a classic period Western, but the Royalton couple prefers to categorize it as a comedy. That's because the stars of their Pasghetti Western are all children. Twenty-eight community youngsters donned cowboy hats for this spunky, kid-size interpretation of the American frontier. Filmed in scaled-down sets and alongside baby horses and calves, the actors appear laughably tall as they work the land and scuffle like adults — or get caught on camera picking their noses. "The footage was adorable and the kids were really into it, so we just kept letting it grow," says Myra. She expects the film to premiere at a local theater sometime this year.
