K.C. Shulberg remembers when his dad Stuart and uncle Bud were making their celebrated film “Wind Across the Everglades” (Warner Brothers, 1958) starring Burl Ives, Gypsy Rose Lee, and a young Christopher Plummer.
The area and ambiance left a lasting impression on him, inspiring him to now plan a new film in southwest Florida. On Friday, February 28, at 5:30 p.m. he will recall memories and stories of the movie industry from his youth before showing clips from his upcoming project in the Jinkins Fellowship Hall behind Everglades Community Church (102 Copeland Avenue South, Everglades City, FL, 34139).
His presentation will be followed by a screening of the full-length “Wind Across the Everglades”.
The event is hosted by the Everglades Society for Historic Preservation. It is free and open to the public but reservations are required. For information and to book your places, email ESHP@hotmail.com or call Marya at (239) 695-2905.
