Third Thursday Lecture Series – The Making of “Wind Across the Everglades”

January 21 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Image of Everglades with title Third Thursday Lecture Series and Museum of the Everglades

This presentation explores the stories behind and beyond the making of this classic film shot on location in Everglades City—and why the “dream team” of an Academy Award-winning screenwriter, director, and leading actor was ultimately a recipe for disaster. Rarely seen behind-the-scenes photos and anecdotes from the personal experiences of the principal actors will give attendees a new perspective on this 1958 cinematic gem.

Seating is limited at the museum due to COVID-19 social distancing restrictions. Guests should arrive at least 5 minutes prior to the beginning of the program or their seats may be given to others waiting on stand-by. Please use the RSVP forms below to reserve your seat at the museum or to attend the event virtually via live streaming.
