At 25, Glenn Irwin Pinnell was already known as Eagle Pennell. The successes of his two first features, The Whole Shootin' Match and Last Night at the Alamo, led to offers from Hollywood and secured Eagle's legendary status among Texas filmmakers. Although Eagle's career continued beyond those first two films, his acute alcoholism and legendary ego alienated many of his friends and collaborators. Eagle remained a forgotten and mostly unsung talent throughout his life. In 2002, he died. Friends, family, and fellow filmmakers recall Eagle's life, the excitement of working alongside him, and the burden of his addictions.
