Last of the Southern Bohemins

O.K. so we went to Mobile Friday night to see a movie. It was a documentary on the life and times of Eugene Walter. Like I said a few post back, the name of this film is The Last of the Bohemians by Robert Clem. It was a pretty good film. I met Mr. Clem afterwards and spoke with him. I ask him how he chose to do a film on Eugene, his reply was that he had written a movie based on a autobiographical novel by Alabama native William March. Both the book and film are called Company K and they are a graphic account of a soldiers experience of World War I. He said during that project he learned of Eugene and decided he wanted him to be his next project.

This was the first showing of the film. I believe Clem will do a little more work on it and then fully release it. I doubt it will play in a theater, but I bet when it is released you can get it on

Stacey did a little photo shoot of downtown Mobile Friday night during their ARTS!ALIVE evening. Enjoy!
