Pearl of Greatest Price Movie

Pearl of Greatest Price Movie

SAN ANGELO, Texas — A little bit of Hollywood has come to San Angelo. Produced entirely by volunteers on a budget of less than $5,000, "The Pearl of Greatest Price" takes place entirely within the city limits.

The three-year project will premiere in three showings Saturday.

My first idea was about a Concho pearl, so I ran with it."

Natural freshwater pearls can be found in West Texas rivers, and the Concho River, or River of Shells, is a natural habitat to the Tampico Pearlymussel. In shades ranging from deep purple to light pink, Concho pearls have been sought after since 1650, when early Spanish explorers arrived in what is now the city of San Angelo.

And as the movie shows, the desire for pearls is timeless.

"I think the movie is representative of what San Angelo can do," Halfast said, adding that he hopes the film will inspire other local creative projects.
