Tender Mercies, written by Texan Horton Foote, was shot in and takes place in Texas. It had the additional element of the devotion of non-Texan actor Robert Duvall, who traveled many miles throughout Texas gathering recordings of accents in order to stay true to the main character, Mac Sledge.

This evening's program is shown in conjunction with the "Spirit Theater Gallery Texas Film Poster" exhibition, and includes a film screening and Q&A with writer and script supervisor, Anne Rapp.
