“CANEY CREEK: The Legend of Alice Lloyd” is a motion picture in development for national distribution that tells the dramatic, true story of Alice Lloyd. It is the journey of a strong, independent woman set in Appalachia, one of the most romantic, misunderstood regions of America.
This is a cinematic love poem to the dignity and legacy of the mountain people, the “Dances with Wolves” of Appalachia.
“Caney Creek: The Legend of Alice Lloyd” climaxes in 1955 when, although faced with bankruptcy and the end of her life, she journeys to California and appears on the NBC broadcast of Ralph Edwards “This Is Your Life” television program.
