Bay County officials aim to avoid echoing the lament of washed-up prize fighter Terry Malloy, played by Marlon Brando in the 1954 movie "On the Waterfront:"
"I coulda been a contender!"
Instead, people in and around Bay City are trying to take full advantage of Michigan's best-in-the-nation filmmaking incentive. In April, Michigan state government started refunding up to 42 percent of a film's Michigan production costs.
It works amazingly well.
