Julia Campbell explores "Tillamook Treasure"

Julia Campbell (Courtney Campbell on "SB") will star in the movie "Tillamook Treasure," scheduled for release this year. An excerpt from the plot line at the IMDb: "Julie, a lonely 14-year-old girl, moves to Manzanita, an Oregon seaside town, from Los Angeles after her writer father, Robert, loses his job. Her family, including mother Kathryn and older sister Susan, has trouble adjusting to life in a small town. Julie's parents struggle with her father's unemployment, and her sister Susan finds solace in a summer fling with Tom, a not-too-bright local logger. The story opens with 16th-century Spanish sailors landing their launch on the beach of Manzanita. They carry a treasure chest up Neahkahnie Mountain, leading a manacled black slave. The treasure is buried and the slave killed and laid on top of the ground to "guard" the treasure and frighten the Indians away. Back in the present day, Julie has a dramatic encounter with a large Roosevelt elk on the beach. Its hooves uncover an old Spanish gold coin in the sand. The elk becomes Julie's silent, watchful guide and protector as she becomes fascinated by the legend of the Tillamook Treasure and becomes drawn to the search for the gold."

Campbell plays the mom, Kathryn Kimbell, in the film, directed by Jane Beaumont Hall and written by Richard Doyon and Jane Beaumont Hall.

I love movies and so does my entire family. The Tillamook Treasure storyline sounds awesome. The industry needs to wake up and crank out family entertainment films because trust me - there is a huge demand for this type of film and the supply simply isn't what it ought to be.

Hey, as someone who has a major thing for "Little House on the Prairie" and "Touched by an Angel," I can say thanks for that!
