This footage, taped by Dallas-based director Jim Ruddy for Entertainment Tonight, takes a behind-the-scenes look at the production of True Women, a 1997 television movie. True Women depicts the lives of three prominent Texas women—Sarah McClure (played by Dana Delany), Ephemia Ashby (Annabeth Gish), and Georgia Virginia Lawshe Woods (Angelina Jolie)—from the pioneer days of Texas through the Civil War and Reconstruction. Taped on set in San Antonio in October 1996, this clip features an unedited interview with actor and Texas native Powers Boothe. During the interview, Boothe talks about what attracted him to the project, the story behind a recently shot scene, and why the film will appeal to both male and female viewers.
