In the spirit of October as Halloween approaches, here’s a photo of Make Up and Costumes in CHRISTMAS RIDE, the engaging, redemptive “road trip to remember” feature film. From upper left clockwise, H T Altman, Harvey Walden, Don Brooks, Shelley Van de Voort, the Commandos Kevin Thornton, and Jeremy Yarbrough, Kelsey Chamness, Terry Byrd, and Jeff Ward (center).
The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) studied Christmas Ride and rated it PG, standing for Parental Guidance suggested. More about this association may be found at mpaa.org .
The Classification and Rating Administration (CARA) explains the motion picture industry ratings at their website CARA.org and filmRatings.com. They maintain a searchable database and Twitter feed announcing the ratings of all films processed to help parents make wise viewing decisions about movies for their children.
In the ladder of ratings, PG is quite mild, only one step up from G (for general audiences) in the scale. After that the rungs of the ladder are PG-13, R, NC-17 indicating higher quantity of adult content less likely to be appropriate for teens or children.
Christmas Ride is beginning its First Theatrical Run this Friday in Laemmle’s Music Hall 3 at 9036 Wilshire Blvd in Beverly Hills, California. Hope you will see the movie if you are in the area and let your Los Angeles friends know about it too!I think this family friendly movie will entertain you. The movie includes ghosts and angels, miracles and madness, tragedies and truths, and is set in the early nineties, before personal cell phones and the internet became ubiquitous.
It will be screening four times a day from September 19 – 25 at 1:20, 4:10, 7:00 and 9:45 PM.
It’s the story of an artist, by an artist, on an urgent road trip with her children and a mysterious neighbor.
I’m going to be at the Q & A’s for the 7PM shows 19 and 20th. Also, cast member Russell Walden plans to attend as well.

Playing the role of April in “Christmas Ride” is seven year old (six at the time of shooting) newcomer Reagan Britt Mullins. With only limited acting experience in school and church plays, Reagan took to the filming process quite easily.
This Bartlett Tennessee second grader prepared for each shoot and much to her parent’s pleasure kept up with her studies and didn’t miss a day of school.
When asked about her favorite part of the filming of Christmas Ride Reagan states “I had fun learning from Mr. Jeff (Yarbrough, Director of Photography) and Mr. H. T. (Altman, Principle Actor) and it was fun having Russ (Russell Walden, Principle Actor) as a movie Brother”.
When asked about her favorite scene, Reagan said “I liked when Russ (Josh) and I snuck away in the Sheriff’s office and throwing leaves on MR. H. T., he was so silly”.
Reagan loves to play soccer and basketball and looks forward to starting third grade this fall. She is active in American Heritage Girls and earns badges like crazy.
Reagan has traveled the country with her parents and just returned from a trip to St Louis where she conquered her fears and made it to the top of the Arch.
Reagan looks forward to continuing her acting career and shooting more inspirational movies like Christmas Ride.
