Columnist Molly Ivins Celebrated in “Raise Hell” Doc Slated for December 3 from Magnolia

Magnolia Home Entertainment has announced the upcoming release of Raise Hell: The Life and Times of Molly Ivins (DVD: $26.98), slated for December 3. Director Janice Engel’s documentary tells the story of Pulitzer Prize-nominated newspaper columnist and political commentator Molly Ivins (1944-2007), a media firebrand who took on the “Good Old Boy” corruption wherever she found it. The film chronicles Ivins’s rise from byline in a small southern newspaper to her name printed in The New York Times, following along as she becomes a true Texas iconoclast: an outspoken woman who drank beer and owned a gun, but remained true to her liberal values in a red state. Bonus features include additional clips.
