Ward Allen: Savannah River Market Hunter
Two colorful characters and their unlikely friendship in early 20th century Savannah, Georgia: Ward Allen, a romantic and bombastic character who rejects his plantation heritage for the freedom of life on a river, and his long-time friend, a freed slave named Christmas Moultrie, fight for their rights as market hunters. Jack Cay grew up listening to stories about gun toting, Shakespeare quoting Allen from an elderly Christmas Moultrie. Jack collected them in a book and his son, John Cay, made the book into a movie. The reprinted book includes movie stills of actors Jim Caviezel, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sam Shepard and Hal Holbrook.
