12:00 Noon Errol Flynn: The Tasmanian Devil in Lone Pine (75 Min) – Ross Schnioffsky & Warren Davey with an audio-visual presentation.
In the 1930’s and 1940’s Australian actor Errol Flynn was one of the most popular stars in the glittering Hollywood galaxy.  And like many other movie greats he made films in the Lone Pine area.  In this illustrated talk we will discuss his formative years in Hobart, Tasmania, his significant contribution to cinema history and his controversial and very colorful private life.  We will concentrate on his two major Lone Pine films: The Charge of the Light Brigade (1936) and Kim (1950).  The first film displays the charismatic Flynn in meteoric ascendancy, and with Kim we see the signs of decline.

                                                      The screening of Flynn’s movie The Charge of the Light Brigade (1936) follows at 2:00 pm at the High School Auditorium.

2:30 pm Trains in Westerns (75 Min) – Jim Clark
Called the “Train Man” by movie makers Jim Clark is the go-to guy when it comes to providing expertise and authenticity for trains used in films.  He will show how trains are set up, operated and fixed at movie locations.  He will reveal how special effects crews use a number of devices, including miniature models and computer graphic, and coordinating those effects with full-sized wood and steel contraptions.


9:30 am Michael Curtiz: A life in Film (90 Min) – Alan K. Rode
Author and historian, Alan K. Rode, discusses the cinematic career of Academy Award ® winning film maker, Michael Curtiz.  From his early years in Hungary through his rise with Warner Bros Studios, his directorial style and success will be discussed.  A favorite of actor, Error Flynn, Curtiz directed Flynn in no less than ten pictures, including The Charge of the Light Brigade, which was filmed on location in Lone Pine.

2:00 pm Top 10 Western Stunts (90 Min) – Dave Matuszak
David F. Matuszak, author of The Cowboy’s Trail Guide to Westerns, will host a“round table discussion” regarding the 10 best Western stunts in feature-length  (“A”) Western movies of all time.
