Storyline

Anson Page, a lawyer with Southern roots leaves New York, his wife and his kids for Georgia. His assignment is to investigate the case of Garvin Wales, a famous writer, now nearly blind and embittered, whose royalties have apparently never reached him. Back in his native South, Page finds himself immediately exposed to what he had fled : racial and class prejudices. But he also meets his former love, Dinah, now married to go-getter uncouth businessman Mickey Higgins. Will he find out whatever happened to 2,000 dollars in rights Wales did not cash? Will Dinah and Anson renew their love story? Written by Guy Bellinger

Found this movie
24 March 2004 | by FfloydewSee all my reviews

I found this movie in the UK. It is UK named "Secret Interlude" I have ordered it in 8MM and will transpose to CD. This is a movie made in Brunswick, Georgia with Richard Egan. My Father was in the movie and it is the only real live memory of my Dad. He passed when I was a baby.

I cannot wait to get it, it has scenes from St. Simons Island, GA and Jekyll Island, GA, Brunswick, GA. Also featuring the old Oglethorpe Hotel Built in 1888 and destroyed in 1959.

Anyone interested, email me.......ED Floyd
