Life before The Factory was founded wasn’t terribly different than it is now. Just take a look at what we were up to this week 14 long years ago.
We celebrated the first day of summer vacation 1993 by heading into a dusty field to film Bandana Trail – an action-filled adventure flick in which JoEllen played a sweet-natured cowgirl named Cherokee and Tina T portrayed her tricky sidekick, Short Cut. The blondest Mallory, Lizzie, strutted into the role of their snickering nemesis, Rattlesnake. So silly, yet somehow so Candy Eye.
We didn’t quite have the discipline then that we do now, however. When temperatures soared into the upper 80s we abandoned the film forever, opting instead to organize a sudden pool party in Tina T’s back yard.
The 9 opening minutes of Bandana Trail remain, however, including the opening credits sequence set, logically, to an En Vogue song.
Bootleg copies of this rare, pre-Factory film have surfaced on e-bay with ending bids as high as 97 dollars!
But if you ever spot such a copy, let us know. We’ll need to litigate.
