'Dean Teaster's GHOST TOWN' Rides First Onto TUBI with Ammo Content

The Mountain Men from Deliverance were reunited in this Smoky Mountain western.
LANSING, Mich. - May 28, 2024 - PRLog -- 'Ghost Town in the Sky' was a popular western theme park attraction sitting on Buck Mountain in Maggie valley, NC. In the 60's and 70's 10,000 plus visitors a day stepped back in time. Rides, shows and legendary gunfight and stunt shows thrilled the daily audiences. The park was so popular that TV studios would send their stars to work several weeks up at the park. Stars like Tony Dow (Leave it to Beaver), Dan Blocker (Bonanza) and even Burt Reynolds worked the gunfights making lifelong friends.

Park actor Herbert 'Cowboy' Coward was hand picked by Burt Reynolds to play opposite Bill McKinney in Deliverance, the John Boorman thriller. The two mountain men scared audiences with their backwoods portrayal. When 'Ghost Town' was being developed co-director Dean Teaster wanted to honor his father Doyle Teaster who played 'Digger the Undertaker' and his co-workers. Many of the original gunfighters were brought out of retirement to play cameo roles. Coward and McKinney were reunited on screen and set against one another. One of the original gunfighters, Robert Bradley was the supervisor of the park shows. He landed a co-starring role as Cherokee Jim Jumper, friend to Coward's Harmon Teaster.

Harmon Teaster, Coward's role in the film was a real man. Although the story mixes fact and fiction in the final telling much of it is taken from actual history. The smoky mountains lured many Scotsmen who felt a natural highland connection to this rugged place. This was a starting point for many who ended up being lured west in search of gold.

The film also has genuine Cherokee traditions embedded into the film. The producers worked closely with the Western Cherokee Nation when filming. The Cherokee dancers in the film were part of the Cherokee Historical Association. Every year the Cherokee nation puts on a telling of their history in a drama play called UNTO THESE HILLS.

The film is considering a few special event theatrical screenings but the film is now starting a home video streaming run. The film first released with Lionsgate during the DVD era of home video. Now the film is being distributed by Ammo Content and one of the first platforms that audiences can watch the film on is TUBI. With over 80 million subscribers audiences can watch for free with ads.
