Gordon Lightfoot's Movie Roles
Lightfoot did not have a role in this movie, but a re-mixed version of If You Could Read My Mind is prominent in this 1972 film's soundtrack, played in three parts during a pivotal scene near the end.
Lightfoot performed on Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Review when they played Maple Leaf Gardens in 1975. Dylan filmed the entire tour, along with dramatic scenes away from the shows. Lightfoot hosted a party, at which time he performed Dylan's Ballad In Plain D in an upstairs room and it made it into the film.
HARRY TRACY DESPERADO
Lightfoot co-starred opposite Bruce Dern in the movie Harry Tracy, Desperado, from 1981. He also recorded the song, My Love For You, which played on the soundtrack, although no soundtrack album was ever released. It was released on VHS and in May 2003 appeared for the first time on DVD.
