MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – “Wheel of Fortune” star and North Myrtle Beach native Vanna White was in Myrtle Beach Monday night for the world premiere of a short film she executive produced.

The film, called “Crab Trap,” follows an alcoholic who tries to redeem himself in the eyes of his sister. The story unfolds with a quiet crab dinner that is set against the backdrop of the South Carolina coast.

“It’s just a great film to watch,” White said. “And you … it takes me back home, when you look at the scenery, you look at the crabs. I grew up crabbing.”

White’s brother also served as a producer on the film. There were two screenings held at the Grand 14 Theater at The Market Common.

Actors, producers and White herself were on hand for a Q&A session afterward. The movie was filmed on location in Murrells Inlet and Garden City.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve lived here,” White said. “And it’s just a great place. It hasn’t changed at all. Everybody’s the same.”
