Have you already seen this movie : The Whole Wide World 

 

In Texas in the 1930s, young schoolteacher Novalyne Price meets a handsome, eccentric, interesting young man named Robert Howard. He's a successful writer - of the pulp stories of 'Conan the Barbarian'; she's an aspiring one. A friendship develops into a sort of courtship. Based on a memoir by Novalyne Price.:sorcerer:

It's really a good movie about the later years of Robert E. Howard, based on the bio-autographies "One Who Walked Alone" and "Day of the Stranger: Further Memories of Robert E. Howard" by Novalyne Price Ellis.

 

The movie seems to be really close from what we know today about REH's life and Vincent D'Onofrio excellent in this role. However, it's necessary to explain that Novalyne was married and aged when she wrote her memories and, perhaps, we don't know everything about her relation with REH.

It is a decent film, with a couple inspired scenes and good acting all around. However, it has plenty of inaccuracies and cannot be considered as a reliable portrait of REH.

The movie is well adapted from the book "One Who Walked Alone", but as said before based on memories of an aged and married woman.

 

This could change if the personal diary of Novalyne (still in the hands of his son), is released one day or another...
