    Jon Voight as Pat Conroy in 1974's "Conrack"

Based on Pat Conroy's autobiographical novel about his time teaching school on Daufuskie Island, "Conrack" stars Jon Voight as the author who doggedly pursues educating the island's young people - most of whom have never left its confines. Martin Ritt ("Hud," "Norma Rae") directed the film which shot largely in Brunswick and St. Simons, Georgia.
