Overheard at Booth 1: Sundown notes

Have a soundtrack in mind for a screenplay about a West Virginia mining town called Sundown

Includes, Gordon Lightfoot's "Sundown" - possibly opening out on a wide pan shot that pulls through the main street of the town which leads to the mountain, whose top has been blown off.

Then, toward the end, when the hero (or anti-hero) kills the boss and sets the equipment on fire, Sweeney's Men "Hiram Hubbard"

And the final credits roll with Elwood's cover of "Sundown"

NOTE: this came from a notebook, entry dated 1-18-2013
