There are dozens of marvelous, “small” movies about writers, their lives, loves, struggles, and successes and The Whole Wide World, a 1996 film from Dan Ireland, is a great place to start a new series of articles. Vincent D’Onofrio (Robert E. Howard, who created Conan) and Renee Zellweger (Novelyne* Price) top a powerful cast in this story of a few years in the life of one of the best selling authors in the “pulp” fiction era.

Learn more about the movie at IMDB.com (one of the Hoarseman’s favorite hangouts.)

*Isn’t the the absolute best name for the heroine of a film about writers? And it’s her REAL name.

    I’m not a violent guy, but I grew up on Conan, read all the books and comics, saw the original movies, and can’t wait to see the remake (none of the movies did the books justice, IMHO, but what mere mortal could?). I’ll have to check out this Whole, Wide World movie….
