Under the Rainbow
Director: Steve Rash
Artist David Capra has long been interested in the actors that played munchkins in the 1939 film the Wizard of Oz. David has been a member of the International Wizard of Oz club since age 7. Due to this obsession his choice is Under the Rainbow. In a classic screwball comedy style, Under the Rainbow follows the adventures of the little people in a Hollywood hotel who are auditioning to star in the classic film.
David will introduce the film and present footage from a recent meeting with Betty Ann Bruno who portrayed a munchkin at age 7.
Please be seated by 2pm
