In this episode I'm joined by Kelli Marshall, host of Chicago Movie Tours (chicagomovietours.com) and screenwriter Gregory Widen (Backdraft, Highlander, The Prophecy) to discuss the 30th anniversary of Backdraft (1991).
Shot here in Chicago in 1990 and released on May 24, 1991, Backdraft set the tone for firefighting movies and TV shows and was a huge boost for Chicago film production in the early 90s.
