Based on her acclaimed autobiographical memoir, One Who Walked Alone, The Whole Wide World tells the story of Novalyne Price, an attractive feisty West Texas schoolteacher and her bittersweet, romantic and turbulent relationship with reclusive writer Robert E. Howard, the most popular American pulp fiction writer of the late “20s and early ”30s. With an insatiable appetite for larger-than-life heroism and fantasy, Howard created such action-adventure classics as Conan the Barbarian, Red Sonja, and Krull the Conqueror. Price’s intense desire to become a writer initially drew her to Howard and their brief two year relationship met with many obstacles, complicated by Howard’s offbeat eccentric ways. But theirs was a romance like no other: deeply passionate, intellectually stimulating, and always challenging – an unforgettable love story that ultimately changed the course of their lives.
Presented in widescreen with the uncommon Dolby Surround 3.0 mix, the extras include a cast and crew commentary and a conversation with Renee Zellweger and Dan Ireland.
Coming on July 29th, the tale will unfold for the suggested list price of $19.95.
