I found an interesting little peace of trivia regarding the hit song "Midnight Train to Georgia".
Late actress Farrah Fawcett inspired soul classic Midnight Train To Georgia.
The tune, which was a huge hit for Gladys Knight & The Pips, was originally titled Midnight Plane to Houston until Whitney Houston's mum Cissy rejigged it.
But songwriter Jim Weatherly insists the hit will always be dedicated to Fawcett and her former husband Lee Majors in his mind.
Weatherly tells Nashville Story Source he wrote the song after chatting to his pal on the phone.
He says, "She said she was packing her clothes and she was gonna go back and visit her folks and she was taking the midnight plane to Houston. When she said that a little bell went off in my head.
"I actually used Farrah and Lee as kind of like the people in the song... It's just a simple little story about a girl that comes to L.A. to make it, becomes a star and everything, finds it too hard and goes back (home)."

Some information about Lee filming Jerusalem Countdown in Manistee, MI
Making movies in Manistee
Community plays role in 10 West Studios films
Patti Klevorn - News Editor
By PATTI KLEVORN
MANISTEE — While much of the rest of the community slept nights this week, a small army of cast and crew has been pulling all-nighters to create a good portion of 10 West Studios’ third film so far, turning Manistee into a backdrop for motion pictures.
Renee Zwiefka didn’t have a part in the film, but her two-story brick home at River and Cross streets sure did.
She lives next door to the studios at Seng’s Marina/Manistee Ironworks, and her home was used for the movie, transformed for a one-night shoot into a safe house for Lee Majors’ character Arlyn Rockwell, a double-agent trying to get out of the arms-deal business.
All of the contents of her living room were stuffed into her bedroom to make way for production designer James R. Cunningham to create the look he needed, a “dive” used by a man on the lam. He shopped west Michigan thrift stores for set furniture.
“It was a great experience,” Zwiefka said Thursday afternoon as her carpets were getting cleaned following the shooting, literally, as there was a gun battle that took place in the home.
Zwiefka was glad to meet Majors, too.
“He was gracious and very friendly,” she said.

Lee talks music. He's a little bit country, and a little bit Colbie Caillat
September 6, 2009
There is an interesting interview with Craig Nevius in Retroality Magazine. Craig was the co-producer of Chasing Farrah and of A Wing and a Prayer, which later became Farrah's Story. He has sued Ryan O'Neal and Alana Stewart for firing him from the project in April after Farrah could no longer represent herself due to her illness. The whole article is here .
He was friends with both Lee and Farrah and was involved with them talking to each other for the first time in 23 years.
Farrah is enigmatic to me in another way. On one hand, she was smart enough to keep the rights to her poster. And she never signed her Charlie’s Angels contract; there were licensing issues there. On the other hand, it seemed at times like the men in her life controlled her. Her old manager, Jay Bernstein, said she left Angels because Lee wanted her home early enough every night to cook him
I talked with Farrah about why she left Charlie’s Angels. And all the stories are partially true.
Yes, she left because of the contract dispute over licensing. And yes, she left because she was not feeling challenged by the role. She wanted the producers to show the Angels at home, in their private lives (and) what effect being a private detective had on their relationships. Yes, she was interested in doing movies—but was more interested in good roles wherever they could be found.
And finally, yes, Lee suggested that she use him as an excuse to try to cut down on the 17-hour workdays. After all, Lee was pretty much the biggest male television star in the world. The Six Million Dollar Man was his third hit series behind Big Valley and Owen Marshall—and of course he would have a fourth hit later with The Fall Guy. I’ve talked to Lee about it, too. I developed a project for him about three months before I met Farrah. We sold it to ABC. While the show was never made, Lee and I became friends.
What did Farrah think about your friendship with her long-estranged bionic ex?
That was the only lie I ever told Farrah. And it was a lie by omission.
When we started working together on Chasing Farrah, I was afraid to tell her that I knew Lee. I wasn’t sure how she would react because of how nasty the divorce was portrayed in the press. But finally, I told her.
We were talking about how most guys of a certain age had her famous poster growing up. She referenced me as being of that “certain age” in the late ’70s. I told her: “Sorry. I didn’t have it. I watched Charlie’s Angels but my allowance went to buying something else I wanted more than the poster.” She asked what that was and I told her it was the action figure of her ex-husband.
She said, “Oh, you were one of those kids who ran in slow motion on the playground?” I told her I was. And then I told her I had a confession to make: that I had worked with her ex-husband and was friends with him. I held my breath as she stared at me, taking in what I had just told her. Then she said, “You’re friends with Lee . . . how is he? We haven’t talked in years!” She was delighted that I knew him and asked me to give him a message. Which I did. And he gave me a message to give back to her.
So you were the Fawcett-Majors messenger?
Yes. A few years later, when the National Enquirer announced to the world that Farrah had cancer, Lee was one of the first people to call me. He wanted to know if it was true. I told him it was. From that point on both Lee and his wife, Faith, always checked in to ask how Farrah was doing.
This went on for a few years. Then, on February 2nd of this year, Lee asked me to tell Farrah “Happy Birthday.” I told him no, that he should call her himself. I think Lee was hesitant because it had been over 20 years since they had spoken. But he did call her and they had a great talk.
Afterwards, Farrah called me and said, “Guess who I just talked to?” I said, “Lee Majors.” She said, “How did you know?” Then my other line beeped. It was Lee. He said, “Okay, I called her!” They were both very funny about it. And it was an unusual place for me to be, to have grown up watching both of their shows and now I had each of them on call waiting after they spoke to each other for the first time in two decades. But they were each glad they did it.
Unfortunately, it would be the last time they would ever speak. Farrah left for Germany two weeks later, came home in a wheelchair and never recovered.

Daniel Adams to adapt classic TV Western
By MARC GRASER
The 1960s television Western that starred Barbara Stanwyck is being adapted into an independent feature by Kate Edelman Johnson and Daniel Adams through their Panther Entertainment banner.
Adams will direct the pic from his own script, whose storyline was developed with series creators Louis F. Edelman and A.I. Bezzerides. Plot borrows elements from the show’s pilot and several episodes.
Roles have not yet been cast.
In the show, Stanwyck played the widowed matriarch of the wealthy Barkley family living in 19th-century Stockton, Calif.
Series, which ran 1964-69 on ABC, also starred Richard Long, Peter Breck and Charles Briles, and launched the careers of Linda Evans and Lee Majors.
Louis Edelman also created the shows “Make Room for Daddy,” “Wyatt Earp” and “The Andy Griffith Show.” Kate Edelman is his daughter.
Adams has also helmed the pics “The Golden Boys” and “Primary Motive.” He is currently in post-production on “The Lightkeepers,” starring Richard Dreyfuss and Blythe Danner.
Pre-production on “The Big Valley” is expected to begin in January, with filming to take place in April in Michigan and New Mexico.
Financing is being provided by Brian and Ethan Gilmore of Capitoline Global Finance, Anthony Gudas of Tax Credit Finance and Scot Butcher.

The mock commercial that Lee recently did is very funny. It does have some strong language so if that offends you, please do not watch.
June 8, 2009
Lee did a "mock" commercial for a friend and it will be up and running on Will Ferrell's website "Funny or Die" tomorrow, June 9th. The name of the commercial is Pet Hunt and does have some strong language in it.
Lee and Faith were kind enough to share some pictures from their recent trip to Maui for Lee's birthday.
On the way to Maui, Lee and Faith were met by some photographers at LAX from TMZ. They asked Lee if he watched Farrah's Story and Lee said he couldn't bring himself to watch it. There were some pretty nasty remarks about Lee not watching the program and Lee's words were twisted. Faith wanted to set the record straight and asked me to post a note from her.
I was very upset to read some of the horrific comments about Lee and I out there on TMZ.
First Lee did not watch the Farrah documentary because it is a VERY, VERY sad situation and Lee doesn't want to see anyone dying especially someone he was once with. You can't punish someone for that.
Secondly Lee and I both have never said anything negative about Farrah, she has put up a tremendous fight against cancer and we certainly wish for the best in a miraculous turn around for her.
We are always being asked if we've spoken to Farrah and the truth is no, Lee and Farrah were divorced almost 30 years ago and they both moved on with their lives, there is no ill will toward Farrah or Ryan it's what happens when two people grow apart and move on. (It's like asking Brad Pitt in 30 years if he's spoken to Jennifer Anniston)
We wish Farrah all the best and how people can be so cruel towards Lee and I without even knowing us is beyond me.
I just wanted to set the record straight since Lee's words were being twisted around by the media and bloggers.
Thank you for your time and understanding in this matter.

Sorry I'm late with this information but sometimes life gets in the way. For all the Ben 10 fans, they are filming a new live action movie based on the cartoon, Ben 10: Alien Swarm. However they have recast all the actors from the 1st movie including Lee as Grandpa Max. Barry Corbin takes over the part of Grandpa Max, Ryan Kelly is Ben and Galadriel Stineman is Gwen. In this movie Ben is now 20 with a girlfriend. Not sure of why the cartoon network has decided to go this way and most of fans of Ben 10 are 6-12 year olds. It will be interesting to see how they like the new Ben 10.
