Film about the Mobile native who ran away from home at age 3, helped found the Paris Review in the 1950s, worked with Federico Fellini and other Italian film directors as actor and translator, became famous as the author cookbooks, and, on his return to Mobile in the late 1970s, was the focus of Mobile's art scene until his death in 1998. A film about a character some described as magical and others as a fraud, a 'moocher' who never had a dime of his own. When all else fails, throw a party, he would say; when he died Mobile's cathedral was packed to overflowing with those whose lives he touched with his charismatic charm. Funded in part by the Alabama Humanities Foundation, a state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities. For more information go to foundmedia.org/eugenewalter.htm.
