"Oh That's Just Eugene" Last of the Bohemians Film

Monroe County Museum, located in the Literary Capital of Alabama, has an exciting series of events throughout the month of October to celebrate the genius of Eugene Walter, noted character extraordinaire and native son of Mobile.

Filmmaker Robert Clem will be here to introduce his documentary film on Eugene Walter.  As Robert Clem writes “Alabama-born Eugene Walter lived a magical life, reportedly running away from home at age three, living in the back room of a bookshop at ten, painting coffins in rural Mississippi while in the Civilian Conservation Corps in the late 1930s  and serving as a cryptographer in the Aleutian Islands during World War II.  That was before he took an ice cream freighter to France in the late 40s, met and worked with the American born princess who published the world famous literary journal Botteghe Oscure,  helped found The Paris Review and acted in the films of Federico Fellini while translating most of the latter’s screenplays into English.  Along the way, he won the Lippincott Prize for first novelists, a Sewanee Review Fellowship in poetry, and became the epicenter of the expatriate community in Rome, where his parties were legendary.”
Clem’s introduction will begin at 6:00 pm, followed by the film and then a reception.  Free to the public.
