DVD: Story Tellers: An Evening with Colorful Characters
DVD Length: 67 minutes
ACTORS: Jasen Wade (Porter Rockwell) | Joshua Michael French (Mark Twain) Cameron Asay (J. Golden Kimball)
WRITER/DIRECTOR: John Lyde
One cold night in the Utah Territory, three opinionated men, seemingly by chance, find themselves sharing a campfire as they tell tales, swap insults, and expound on their personal beliefs and philosophies. However, one of the men is not there by mere coincidence. Join Porter Rockwell, Mark Twain, and J. Golden Kimball for an entertaining and intriguing evening with three of the most colorful characters of the Old West.
Fans of the L.D.S. historically famous Porter Rockwell & J. Golden Kimball, will delight in this little known account of their meeting with Mark Twain! It was very interesting, yet, presented in low-key, relaxed production. It borders a Documental genre. This is not reviewed and rated as a movie.
The actors did a fabulous job portraying their characters. The setting was perfect. The only complaint I have is in the beginning of the film presentation, the background music drowned out the voices of the actors but it improved within a few minutes. The music score enhanced the perfect setting and was very effective.
This receives a Four Stars rating
*This DVD was a gift. I am not asked to give a positive review. This is my honest Review.
