THE MULE

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. 

 

Here is Mollie's short & condensed version of her experience:

Clint Eastwood directed and co-starred in “The Mule.” Clint Eastwood watches the “Mollie B Polka Party” and according to the folks at Warner Brothers studios, “He is a Mollie B fan.” 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. The scene was shot in Atlanta with several polka people on set including the band SqueezeBox, several Mollie B fans, including my parents, and a few extras. While on set, my personal role was extended from playing and singing to also dancing with Clint Eastwood. Ted and I attended the premiere in Westwood, California. The movie was released on December 14. Our one-minute, 40-seconds scene, which includes the song that Ted and I co-wrote, “A Day to Say Thank You,” is about 40 minutes into the movie. 

 

And my opinion about Clint Eastwood? He was great to work with. I found him to be very kind, knowledgeable, gentle, and had no airs about him.
