Yes, this is another post about something fantastic the A.V. Club did, but it was too good not to share. The A.V. Club recently took a field trip to Houston and visited the school that stood in for Rushmore Academy, St. John’s School.
The video features shot-by-shot comparisons of campus then and now, excellent interviews with a current teacher at St. John’s who was a friend of Wes’s in high school and the owner of Rosemary Cross’s home, and, as a bonus, has shot of Wes’s yearbook from senior year.
Join us after the jump for a bit more.
Kyle Ryan’s article that accompanies the video is filled with love for Houston and a lot of great details, including the respect that Anderson paid to the homes he used and the people that he worked with. (Talented and nice!)
