The 'African Queen' Docks in Ludlow Sept 6

Bogart Stars in "The African Queen" Sept. 6 in Ludlow

"The African Queen", a multi-award winning film, will be FOLA's next 1st Thursday movie on Thursday, September 6 at 7 PM in the Ludlow Town Hall Auditorium.
The only movie matchup of screen legends Katharine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart, The African Queen is a classic adventure movie and a grown-up love story, with a little bit of travelogue and a dollop of wartime propaganda.
Watching this unlikely pair survive a treacherous river trip, attempt a daring wartime attack and fall into a charming, late-life love affair makes for a splendid movie.
The African Queen stars Humphrey Bogart in his Oscar-winning portrayal of Charlie Allnut, the slovenly, gin-swilling captain of a tramp steamer called the African Queen, which ships supplies to small East African villages during World War I. Katharine Hepburn plays Rose Sayer, the maiden-lady sister of a prim British missionary, Rev. Samuel Sayer (Robert Morley). When Germans invade and Samuel dies, Allnut offers to take Rose back to civilization. She can't tolerate his drinking or bad manners; he isn't crazy about her imperious, judgmental attitude. However it does not take long before their passionate dislike turns to love. Together the disparate duo work to ensure their survival on the treacherous waters and devise an ingenious way to destroy a German gunboat. The African Queen may well be the perfect adventure film, its roller-coaster storyline complemented by the chemistry between its stars.  Go to to see a preview of this great film.
The movie is free to all; donations are appreciated. For Information, call 228-7239

FOLA Silent Movies Big success

Buster Keaton Silent Movies Big Success in Ludlow

The movies were 90 to 100 years old, all in black and white, and lacked any sound.  But that didn't seem to faze the over 75 people who gathered at Ludlow Town Hall Auditorium last week to enjoy the comedy and melodrama of 3 silent movies featured by FOLA (Friends of Ludlow Auditorium).  Two Buster Keaton classics, 'The Scarecrow' and 'Cops', brought continuous laughter to an audience of youngsters (and those seeking to return to that youthful age) who had never seen the antics of silent movie comedians.  Glenn Brown of Ludlow provided piano musical background for the Keaton romps.  He noted, "I have to say for my part, I don't think I ever had played a piano for 40 minutes in the dark, focusing on the screen without looking at the keyboard. It was a great test of my memory and my fingers'  knowledge of the keyboard that I had never tried before!"  Jim Alic and Kevin Kuntz ran the projection equipment while David Almond and the rest of the FOLA crew helped manage events on the floor.  Based on this experience, FOLA indicated that it has scheduled a full-length silent movie (about an hour) for Saturday, October 6 at the auditorium.  The film, "Wings", is the first movie to win the Academy Award for Best Picture and, in addition to starring the "IT Girl", Clara Bow, marked the introduction of a young star by the name of Gary Cooper.  For more information call 228-7239
