LOUISIANA HOLLYWOOD HISTORY

Listen to Steve Schneickert on Big Blend Radio, as he recalls the Hollywood History of the classic movies “Steel Magnolias” and “The Horse Soldiers” which were filmed in Natchitoches Parish, and “Blaze” which had scenes filmed in Winnfield. Located on the campus of Louisiana State University in Alexandria, the historic Epps House played a significant role in ending Solomon Northrup’s twelve years as a slave. He tells of his experience in his 1853 book, Twelve Years a Slave, which inspired a 1984 documentary, “Solomon Northup’s Odyssey” as well as the 2013 historical drama film, “12 Years a Slave”.
