"Personal in My Memory"
The South in Popular Film
by some of our favorite writers and filmmakers
with an introduction by Godfrey Cheshire

Alice Walker, Allan Gurganus, Randall Kenan, Joe Flora, Kenneth Turan, Elizabeth Spencer, and Andrew Garrison tell how their favorite Southern films marked them indelibly.

"We have two imaginary kingdoms. One, 'the South,' exists primarily in song, oral traditions and folkways, native art and literature. The other, 'Hollywood,' creates mass-produced audiovisual entertainments for American and world audiences, and develops its own mythology."
