JAMES A. PIKE, PIKE PRODUCTIONS, INC. Interviewers frequently ask Travis about his father, the independent filmmaker who starred Travis in his 1966 feature film Feelin' Good. Travis knows little of Pike Productions' day-to-day operations after he moved to Los Angeles in 1968, but his father visited annually after previewing his trailers at ShoWest in Las Vegas.
