27th April 2008 : Fair also discovered on Flickr these intriguing series of 16 location shots taken by "Prosperous Scouting" and uploaded to Flickr on 27th February 2008. Our attempts at contacting "Prosperous Scouting" have so far been unsuccessful and we bring you only this screenshot of his Flickr page because of copyright issues.

27th April 2008 : It didn't take long for Fair to discover Jeff Turner's amazing behind the scenes photographs of Montana Amazon, and this again caused a huge wave of excitement with Haley's fans when Fair featured just three of the Montana Amazon pictures.

7th April 2008 : An incredible set of 13 fabulous behind the scenes photographs of Montana Amazon, taken on location at Vasquez Rocks in California, were uploaded by photographer Jeff Turner on his Flickr photostream site.

5th April 2008 : Once again, it was Fair who brought in yet another scoop about the film having finished up in Barstow, California at the end of March 2008, and that filming had now moved on to Vegas. Fair also noted that an official page for Montana Amazon had now gone online at IMDB , and although it did NOT list Haley Joel Osment as an actor in the film, Haley Joel Osment's name was prominently listed as one of the film's Executive Officer, causing quite a stir of excitement among Haley's fans.

26th March 2008 : Jason Smith, in an article entitled " Scenes for independent film shot in Barstow ", written for the Desert Dispatch and published 26th March 2008 was the earliest article with details on the filming of Montana Amazon, and was also the first to publish a behind the scenes photograph on the set of Montana Amazon. Once again, Fair was the first fan to alert everyone else about this story on the Haley Joel Osment Message Board.

7th March 2008 : Within a day, FAIR, one of Haley's most loyal fans, alerted the fans on the official Haley Joel Osment Message Board about the mention of this new Haley Joel Osment film that there was a brief mention of the film at the National Ledger website. Fans were extremely excited to hear this news. Incredibly, Fair went one better than The National Ledger by correctly identifying the film by its full title : Montana Amazon, The Adventures of the Dunderheads. We have archived Fair's post here.

6th March 2008 : The earliest indication that Haley Joel Osment was involved in a new film came when there was a brief mention of the film at The National Ledger website in an article written by Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith , and published March 6, 2008. The film was identified, not quite correctly, as The Adventures of the Dunderheads.
