Historical Movie Being Filmed in Ripley and Maysville

A new movie about a slave couple's struggle to be properly married, and set during the 1850s, is being filmed in Ripley, Ohio, and Maysville, Kentucky. The movie will be called "Mattie, Johnny and the Smooth White Stones" and is directed by Cassandra Hollis, who also stars as the character Mattie. Part of the movie was filmed recently in the basement of the Phillip's Folly on Sutton Street and shows the scene where two characters are hiding from slave chasers. The first part of the film has already received acclaim from the National Park Service Underground Railroad Network to Freedom Program for its authentic rendition of this part of the nation's history. More information about the film and its production crew can be found at the director's web site:
