HUTCHINSON, Kan. - The real-life story of a troubled Hutchinson stove restoration business has inspired a film. The Hutchinson News reports that several weeks of filming are expected to wrap up by Monday on a feature film called "Salvation."
Writer/director Bernie Van De Yacht was among the people who lost money with a man who repaired and restored gas stoves from the 1950s and 1960s. Complaints started to pile up in 2007 for non-delivery of stoves and refusal to refund down payments. There were also complaints about the quality of the finished stoves.
"Salvation" producer Danny Rodriguez says the filming brought more than 50 people from Hollywood to Hutchinson. Locals were hired as actors and crew members. "Salvation" is expected to be released in 2013.
