IN FILMIC MEMORIAM: GUS KOUTROULAKIS, 1929-2011




As Joe York crosses the region, surveying the state of Cornbread Nation for the forthcoming Southern Food: The Movie, he trains his lens on remarkable personalities like Gus Koutroulakis, the longtime proprietor of Pete's Famous Hotdogs in Birmingham.  


Sadly, Gus passed away this spring. In remembrance, Joe offers this film, and Amy suggests a read of our 2004 oral history interview with Gus here.
