Houston Was Mentioned In "ray" And Mr.3000

Recommended Posts

I rented "Ray" and I didn't know Ray Charles Wife was from Houston or they lived in Houston. They also mentioned in the movie "KCOH" radio station. It was too early for me to remeber what talk show Ray was on.

I rented Mr. 3000 and well The Brewers in the movie played the Astros. Of course wouldn't name any players but I saw the movie and the Astros in their gray uniform for a brief time. When someone hit to first they wouldn't say the players name just "a player hits to first" -WEAK!! name some names LOL!!

Anyway I thought that was pretty cool! :)

I mentioned that earlier on the forum about Ray Charles' wife from Houston and them living in Houston. I wonder why no one ever mentions it?

'Ray' gives Charles more of Houston than he wanted

Don't believe everything you see in the movies.

Ray pays cinematic homage to Ray Charles' Houston connections, from promoting his music at a local radio station to wooing a hometown girl.

So far, so good. The movie version has Della Beatrice Antwine remaining home in Houston while her soon-to-be-legendary husband returns to the road, dropping by between concert dates and other extracurricular activities.

I think it was this bridge:

And, after thinking about it some, I realized it was not at the aforementioned location. It's the bridge that crosses White Oak Bayou at W. 18th!
