A segment of the Jett Durango sequel Jett Durango: The Resurrection has been rewritten to be cast on an authentic replica of an 1800s era sternwheeler riverboat.
The Main Deck Room serves as the ship's primary dining room, wedding chapel, and casino. The rich, elegant Victorian era decor, with its beautiful floral carpet, beveled glass doors, wooden oak bar with brass rails, solid oak woodwork, and chandeliers sets the ambiance. The Empress Room is fully enclosed and climate controlled.
The Second Deck's Magnolia Room with it's dance floor, authentic embossed tin ceiling, beautiful oak bar and bandstand is the entertainment center. The room is fully enclosed and climate controlled
The Third Deck is a split-level open deck. These two levels in the era of riverboats were designated to make it the favorite level for observing the water and its surrounding forests and its magnificent sunsets.
Perched on the forward portion is the Pilot House, with its six foot diameter wooden ship's wheel. From this vantage point the Captain controls the boat while it is underway.
Two 18-foot paddlewheels move and maneuver the riverboat "Ol' Yeller" the Sweetwater branded and signed moniker of the boat on the Powder River, tributary of the Yellowstone River. The paddles operate independently, are fully reversible and are controlled by two specially designed hydraulic motors mounted on the hubs.
The heighth (obsolete spelling of height) of the riverboat is 57 feet (waterline to top of stacks), width is 40 feet.
The rewrite has been structured to cast Prophet Brigham Young in 1875 Salt Lake City on the subject of polygamy, one of Prophet Young's ex-wives, an advocate on women's rights in the 19th century writing a book about polygamy speaking out against oppression of women and her account of polygamy. Sweetwater is marketing this film heavily in the LDS community. The Sundance Wives push forward to bring Sweetwater films to screen.
