"Intruder in the Dust" Returns to Oxford, MS
Intruder in the Dust is a movie based on a short story by William Faulkner of the same name. Shot in and around Oxford, Mississippi in 1948-49, the film premiered 60 years ago in October. To commemorate the event, the Lyric Theater in Oxford will screen the film on October 2, 2009. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. for a cocktail party, followed by a documentary about the film, and then the movie itself. Claude Jarman, Jr., the child star who played one of the central characters, will lead a discussion after the film. The event is a fund raiser for the Oxford Film Festival.
