A Golden State of Mind: The Storytelling Genius of Huell Howser

Documentary, 55 minutes, USA

Directed by Jeff Swimmer

Over the course of 30 years, Huell Howser produced hundreds of episodes of television under the title 'California's Gold.' This film tells the story of that series, and how Huell made stars of everyday people, and how he covered every aspect of the state of California, from its natural beauty to its historical landmarks, from its homespun family businesses to the weird and the arcane roadside attractions.
