As a cast member of this movie it has special meaning to me. Working with Tracy was an experience beyond belief, seeing her and other cast members perform brought out the best in the rest of the cast. My only regret is not getting a copy of the movie, if anyone has a copy or knows how I can get a copy I would be most appreciative. The movie was filmed in Charleston, South Carolina in the spring of the year. Typical days started early and went quite late. The prison scene was shot in the old exchange building, one of the landmarks in Charlestion. We spent the entire day in the lower level, shooting the scenes where Tracy brought bread to the starving Union soldiers.
