Though Vernon is first glimpsed wearing protective goggles, it’s immediately clear that he has the cold, primal eyes of a wolf—thus making him a kindred spirit to his wife, who a local witch claims is a wolf demon who sheds her skin at night to run free, presumably howling at the moon. Russell howls too, during his initial search for Medora and Vernon’s offspring. Despite Hold the Dark’s decision to refrain from explaining precisely why he’s taken this assignment (it’s not for money, or glory), Russell is unquestionably a man in tune with—and compelled to indulge—his own animalistic nature.

Much of it shows the deft hand of legendary designer Ellen Biddle Shipman, who devoted 15 years to the gardens, designed the home's opulent interiors and lorded it over architects William and Geoffrey Platt to emphasize views to her masterpiece. The home's amenities include a flower-arranging room, natch. For years, hundreds of camellias Shipman planted had to be covered all summer so they wouldn't burn up in the Louisiana heat.

It was a Thursday and the first day of shooting on Midnight Rider, a $5 million-budgeted independent feature based on Allman’s rock autobiography My Cross To Bear. Miller’s cast and crew trekked over an hour from their base of operations in Savannah to the Doctortown trestle in Wayne County, Georgia, a train bridge overlooking the Altamaha River that was previously best known as the site of the Battle of Altamaha Bridge—a historic Confederate victory during the Civil War. … [Read more...] about Inside the ‘Midnight Rider’ Manslaughter: Will Hollywood Learn From the Death of Sarah Jones?
