Most likely your parking brake cable it frozen with rust. Does the parking brake handle pull up at all?

Moved to Brakes, Suspension & Chassis

Driver's side is the issue then, if you get assistance to move the lever you can SEE if the cable is moving on that side. Then deal with that & whatever problems are inside the drum (terminates inside there).
