We are proud to announce you will see Squeezebox in the new Warner Brothers film, "The Mule!" Directed by and starring Clint Eastwood, along with Bradley Cooper, Dianne Wiest, and Andy Garcia, "The Mule" is based on a true story. Broke, alone and facing foreclosure on his business, 90-year-old horticulturist Earl Stone (Eastwood) unknowingly takes a job as a drug courier for a cartel. His immediate success leads to easy money that soon draws the attention of hard-charging DEA agent Colin Bates (Cooper). When Earl's past mistakes start to weigh heavily on his conscience, he must decide whether to right those wrongs before law enforcement and cartel thugs catch up to him.
Eastwood, a fan of Mollie B, specifically asked for Mollie and her polka band to appear in the movie, and Ted and Mollie wrote the song they are playing in the scene, which also features dancers from the Mollie B Polka Party. Click here for more details and pictures from the filming!
