JOHN SONNY SCHNEIDER MARINELLI GOUSSET SLAUGHTER WILLIAMS MYSTERIOUS CIRCUMSTANCE THE DEATH OF MERIWETHER LEWIS A MYSTERY 213 YEARS UNSOLVED'Mysterious Circumstance: The Death of Meriwether Lewis is NOW PLAYING at The River Cinema in Salmon, Idaho … God’s Country indeed! If you’re in Salmon, SEE OUR MOVIE!

A story of the allegedly unresolved 1809 demise of a national hero, “Mysterious Circumstance” sheds light on Lewis’s death by gunshot on the Natchez Trace, an isolated frontier road connecting Nashville, Tennessee to Natchez, Mississippi.
Did the Governor of the Louisiana Territory commit suicide as history reports or was his end far more sinister?
In the film, entangled versions of Lewis’s tragic ending at a remote Tennessee inn are imagined by his friend Alexander Wilson (Billy Slaughter, Mindhunter) during a tense encounter with Priscilla Grinder (Amy Gousset, The Card Counter), the only witness to Lewis’s final night alive. The historical thriller brings together an award-winning cast and crew that includes Schneider (The Dukes of Hazzard), Sonny Marinelli (Entourage) and Evan Williams (Versailles, Blonde) as Lewis. It also features former NFL great Marcus Dupree.

Writer/Director Clark Richey is available for interviews. Please check the theater’s website for dates and showtimes.
