"Shadow Casting: The Making of 'A River Runs Through It" MSU professor Dennis Aig reflects on Montana film that caught nation's imagination 25 years ago

January 3, 2018View for printing

This month marks the 25th anniversary of the release of Aig's "Shadow Casting: The Making of 'A River Runs Through It.'" ... It/70029439 Aig still clearly remembers the call from graduate school friend Patrick Markey, a producer of "A River Runs Through It," the Robert Redford film based on Norman Maclean's novella.

"We met at the Holiday Inn, and as Patrick told me the actors who were in the film, it was a bunch of people I hadn't heard of before except Tom Skerritt," Aig recalled. One of those no-name actors was Brad Pitt, whose career skyrocketed after his role in "River."
