NOSTALGIA NIGHT FILM SERIES FEATURES THIRTY SECONDS OVER TOKYO THIS SUNDAY EVENING
The Friends of the SDSM& T Devereaux Library are featuring Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo this Sunday evening, January 17th, as the second movie of the 1999 Nostalgia Night Film Series. The showing of the movie begins at 6: 00 pm in the Elks Theatre and is sponsored by Re/ Spec Inc. and Brink Electric Company.
This exciting World War II classic is based on the true story of Jimmy Doolittle and the first American attack on Japan. Directed by Hollywood legend, Mervyn LeRoy, the film stars Van Johnson, Robert Walker and Spencer Tracy. Robet Mitchum also appears in the movie. The film is known for its remarkable accuracy and includes footage from the actual raid.
The movie premiere was held November of 1944 at the Capital Theater in New York City. Henny Youngman and Tommy Dorsey appeared onstage, and admission was by purchase of a war bond.
Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo is being offered in lieu of the originally scheduled Mmister Roberts due to a shipping mix- up by the booking agent. Ticket booklets for the ten- film series are still available at the Elks Theatre and the Devereaux Library. Individual tickets will be available at the door the evening of the film for $ 4.50 on a space available basis. For additional information, call the Devereaux Library at 394- 1262.
