Film - "Night Must Fall" (1937)
Presented by Barbara Steffek-Hill

A woman who went missing is found murdered in a peaceful English village. Her killer is at large. Cantankerous invalid Mrs. Bramson (Dame May Whitty) owns and lives on a nearby estate with niece Olivia (Rosalind Russell). One of the maids introduces handsome Welshman, Danny (Robert Montgomery) to them as her fiancée. Then and there, Danny wins the job of Mrs. Bramson’s live-in companion.

Talk - Normandy to the Netherlands: A Fighter Pilot’s View
Presentation by James Frolking

James Frolking has a good reason to remember D-Day. It was on June 6, 1944, that he flew his first mission as a fighter pilot in World War II. In all he would fly fifty-two combat missions with the 479th Fighter Group of America’s 8th Air Force—fifty missions in the P-38 “Lightning” and two in the P-51 “Mustang.” It came to a crashing end when anti-aircraft fire brought him down on October 7, 1944, over German-occupied territory in the Netherlands. Fortunately the Dutch underground got to him before the Germans, and advancing Canadian troops liberated him a few weeks later. Come and hear this story of the “greatest generation” from one of the men who made it great.
