Spring Grove, MN Native Is In Clint Eastwood’s New Movie!
If you've been around Southeastern Minnesota a decent amount of time, you know who Spring Grove, MN native Mollie Busta is. She's Mollie B! The polka and more music phenom, maybe best known for the Mollie B Polka Party on RFD-TV (this Saturday night at 10 with George Staiduhar, Fleming Fold, Jodie Mikula Orchestra, Steve Meisner, and Polka Riot).
Her life has been filled with music, both performing and teaching (in Lanesboro among other places!). But now she's entered the movie business, too! According to Mollieb.com,
In March of 2018, Mollie B and "her band" were asked to be in a Warner Brothers film directed by and starring Clint Eastwood. The movie was released in December of 2018.
How cool is that? Apparently, Clint Eastwood has been a fan for a long time and it was Eastwood's people that reached out to have the band play in the movie. Also from Mollieb.com,
Mr. Eastwood wanted to know if I would be in his upcoming movie as “Mollie B” along with “my band.” The scene was a grand re-opening of a VFW with Clint Eastwood’s character. Not only would I get to sing and play in this scene, Ted Lange and I had the opportunity to submit original songs for the polka band to play in this movie scene...
Outstanding! ANd congratulations, we're proud of you!
If you're watching The Mule, their scene comes on around the 1-hour 40-minute mark.
