Joe and Abe welcome former Portlander Penny Allen, who has lived in France for many years. She is in Portland for a showing of her second film, PAYDIRTat The Northwest Film Center's Whitsell Auditorium at the Portland Art Museum Thursday, January 8th, 7:00 PM.  She will introduce the film.

Paydirt, made in 1981, is a time capsule of the Northwest. Set in the lush hills of Newberg, PAYDIRT tells the story of Nancy (Lola Desmond), the great-granddaughter of an Oregon pioneer, who reclaims the family land to start a vineyard and winery. The dirty little secret is that her back-to-the-land fantasy is only possible if she grows a crop that actually generates cash: marijuana. The film features a cameo by David Lett, a pioneering Oregon winemaker. He died in October.
