Prince Albert Hunt in the Can
Not long ago I found my VHS copy of Ninth Life, director Ken Harrison's made-in-Deep Ellum noir-thriller that -- hey, quite the coincidence -- celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. We really oughta have a celebratory screening and invite some of the stars, among them Kim Pendleton and Matthew Posey. But while we ponder that possibility, the folks at Folkstreams -- which bills itself as "A National Preserve of Documentary Films about American Roots Cultures" -- today posted to YouTube an excerpt from one of Harrison's earlier works, a '74 doc about Prince Albert Hunt, a singer and fiddler from Terrell killed outside a Dallas nightclub in '31. Here 'tis.
Update at 4:52 p.m.: Angela Hunt just posted the following note in the comments: "He's my great-uncle. Really."
