Classic 1960 film gets the documentary treatment.
Southeastern Tennessee is no stranger to Hollywood. Recent productions of “42” and “Water for Elephants” spent a good bit of time in the Scenic City (and surrounding areas). But well before those film crews made their way down South, back in 1960, director Elia Kazan brought Montgomery Clift, Lee Remick and Jo Van Fleet to Charleston, Tennessee to film “Wild River.”
Now, the Museum Center at 5ive Points is showing Allison Inman’s documentary film “Mud on the Stars: Stories from Elia Kazan’s Wild River,” in which she looks into what the making of the film was like for the local community, in a special screening on Tuesday evening.
Local historians and residents who were involved with production will be on hand for a lively Q&A sesssion after the screen, along wtih Inman herself.
