Help solve a mystery!

The South Dakota Office of Tourism recently received an inquiry that hopefully someone out there can help with.

Ruth is looking for a movie that was filmed here in the mid-1970s -

"I am not sure if you can help or not, but I am trying to find this movie: Brother, My Song, directed by Christopher Cain aka Bruce Doggett (originally from Sioux Falls).

Parts of this film were done in Hartford, Mitchell, and I believe a television studio in Sioux Falls. I also believe the choir from SF College was in it, but not entirely sure about that. I just know that I am one of the many extras in that film and I really would like a copy. I have only seen it once and that's when it was first released back in 1976.

Can you help? I have tried every website that I can think of to find this movie, but obviously I have not been able to find it."


This was a completely new one to me, so if anyone has any information I'd be glad to pass it along to Ruth.

  1. Hi there! Dan Miller here, director of theatre at Dakota Wesleyan University. I don't have a copy of the film, but I do have the adress of the director. Please email me and I can give it to you. BTW The director / writer of the film is a DWU graduate and was heavily involved in choir here. So it was DWU's choir, not USF's choir that was highlighted and used in the film.

    Thanks
