City of Dothan Honors Hometown Football Hero and Film Star

Dothan is about to honor one of Alabama's biggest football heroes and film stars.

Anyone who knows westerns knows Johnny Mack Brown, who first made his name on the field in Tuscaloosa. A few years later, movie goers knew him as a movie star in more than 160 films with Mae West, John Wayne and Greta Garbo.

The city is holding its annual film festival May ninth and tenth, featuring many of his best movies.  If you'd like to attend you can call organizers at 334-794-3452.
