If you’ve been following my blog, you may already know that I am a huge fan of Augusta Evans Wilson and her book ST. ELMO. Both inspired my novel THE PRINCE IN THE TOWER.
Filmmaker Robert Clem pays tribute to Augusta Evans Wilson and ST. ELMO in his film THE PASSION OF MISS AUGUSTA. The film premiered September 12, 2013, in Mobile, Alabama. I haven’t seen the movie, but I’m looking forward to viewing the DVD. (I’m listed as one of the co-producers in the credits.)
“The Passion of Miss Augusta” is part drama, part documentary. The film begins as a silent film version of ST. ELMO then fast-forwards to the 1950s with the main characters in modern dress. As you watch the trailer (above) notice the differences between the silent and modern-day versions.
