About the Film

Filmmaker Ken Harrison creates a portrait of an artist in a small Texas town.
Originally titled Memories of Prince Albert Hunt, this film is a study of the wild short life of Prince Albert Hunt, a blues singer/fiddler from Terrell, Texas, who was murdered in 1931 by a jealous husband. Filmmaker Ken Harrison (1942-2019) made this film in 1974 in an experimental program that used Super 8mm film for television production. The original super 8 film is lost.
