W.O. Mitchell: Novelist in Hiding

Top of page

Playwright and novelist W.O. Mitchell is one of Canada's most popular personalities. In this film he is seen in his many different roles: writer, teacher, father, husband, and on-stage entertainer. He talks candidly about himself, his work, and about the Prairies that have had such a profound effect on him and his writing. The commentary is read by Peter Gzowski; actor William Hutt reads passages from Mitchell's works.
