Filmmaker Robert Clem pays tribute to Augusta Evans Wilson and ST. ELMO in his film THE PASSION OF MISS AUGUSTA. The film premiered September 12, 2013, in Mobile, Alabama. I haven’t seen the movie, but I’m looking forward to viewing the DVD. (I’m listed as one of the co-producers in the credits.)
“The Passion of Miss Augusta” is part drama, part documentary. The film begins as a silent film version of ST. ELMO then fast-forwards to the 1950s with the main characters in modern dress. As you watch the trailer (above) notice the differences between the silent and modern-day versions.
