If you were wondering whatever happened to the movie "Grand Champion" that was filmed here on the South Plains in Snyder, the filming is complete. This weekend you can see it for yourself. It is showing Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday at Movies 16.
The movie is about a boy named Buddy who wins the grand champion with a steer he has raised as a pet. George Strait and Julia Roberts both have cameos in the movie. Julia Robert's 10-year-old niece plays one of the star roles.
