    Did or has anyone caught the 1997 movie EULEE's GOLD? Peter Fonda is the star. He is a traveling beekeeper from Loisiana! we caught the last part. the show him processing his honey and talk about bees and keeping during the movie. In the credits at end of the movie the name 6-8 beekeeping companies and beekeepers!

    Actually, to the best of my recollection, Peter Fonda is a beekeeper himself, if not before the movie, after making it.
    It is a good movie, lots of drama that doens't involve bees, but that's OK.
    I give it 4 :thumbsup: out of 5.

    That's odd, I searched Netflix and it stops searching at "eul" and says that nothing is found. Is the spelling correct in the original post?

    as perry said, it is a good movie, but drama that doesn't involve beekeeping. peter fonda is portrayed as a beekeeper in the movie, but the movie is not about that, it is centered about family struggles and how fonda deals with it, as a widow and a grandfather, and to a less extent, a beekeeper. still a good movie to watch.
