Way Library’s classic film series, Reel Talk, continues with “The Little Colonel” starring Shirley Temple and Lionel Barrymore. This 1935 film is set in Reconstruction South and has Shirley mending broken ties with her grandfather (Lionel Barrymore) and mother (Evelyn Venable) who had married a northerner against her father’s wishes. In between, Shirley argues with cook Hattie McDaniel and does her famous staircase dance with Bill Robinson.

Dr. Jan Wahl, local author, film collector, and coordinator of the classic film series held at Bowling Green State University’s Lillian Gish Theatre will be guest speaker. Dr. Wahl once interviewed Miss Temple and will talk about his experience with the legendary film actress.

The film will be shown Thursday, February 12 at 10:00 a.m. Admission and refreshments are free. The Reel Talk Classic Film Series is sponsored by Master Chemical. For more information, visit waylibrary.info or call 419-874-3135.
