Story Tellers: An Evening with Colorful Characters


On cold night in the Utah Territory, three opinionated men seemingly by chance find themselves sharing a campfire as they tell tales, swap insults, and expound on their personal beliefs and philosophies. However, one of the men is not there by mere coincidence. Join Porter Rockwell, Mark Twain, and J. Golden Kimball for an entertaining and intriguing evening with three of the most colorful characters of the Old West.

In Emilee’s opinion:

This wasn’t the typical film that I normally watch. I was a little nervous that the entire film was based off of one night. But, I gave it a try and loved it. I loved learning more about Porter Rockwell, Mark Twain and J. Golden Kimball. Each character had their own story and I thought it was very well done.  Honestly, I had to look up Porter Rockwell since I wasn’t familiar with his name. He was the bodyguard and personal friend of Joseph Smith, founder of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He was also a figure of the Wild West period of American History and a law man in the Utah Territory. In this film, we see a patient and kind man. We all know who Mark Twain was, however, that was his pen name. His real name was Samuel Langhorne Clemens. It was fun to hear Twain talk about his newest novel, Adventures of Tom Sawyer.  J. Golden Kimball was a leader of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Sains, serving as a member of the First Council of the Seventy. He was a very colorful character, one who had a lot of choice words. Overall, the music and setting was beautiful and I defnitely recommend this film as a family friendly movie directed by John Lyde. Very well done!!!
