This Weekend’s LRPA After Dark Feature: 

1945’s “Captain Kidd”

 

Join Lakes Region Public Access Television at 10:30 p.m. this Friday and Saturday night (August 10 & 11) for our “LRPA After Dark” presentation of 1945’s swashbuckling adventure “Captain Kidd,” starring Charles Laughton, Randolph Scott and Barbara Britton.

 

In the unabashedly unhistorical “Captain Kidd,” the larger-than-life pirate (Laughton) convinces England’s King William III that he is an honest ship’s captain, and that he’s just the man to escort a treasure-laden vessel bound for England through the dangerous waters off of Madagascar. He further persuades the King that he needs a crew of condemned pirates for the job – and that they should be given a royal pardon. Kidd’s plan is to double-cross the King and take the treasures for himself. The pardoned crew is made up of scalawags and cutthroats (you’ll recognize the great character actors including John Carradine, Gilbert Roland and Sheldon Leonard, among others). One of them, Adam Mercy (Scott), is a smart and sophisticated rogue with manners and intelligence that very much please Kidd – and later, attract the attentions of Lady Anne Falconer (Britton). But soon things are not as they appear. Is Adam really who he says he is? What are his real intentions? Can a buccaneer such as Kidd trust anyone for very long?

 

Although woefully inaccurate in terms of history (there is a scene that includes the Tower Bridge, roughly 200 years before it would have been built!), “Captain Kidd” is well-regarded for strong performances from a deep and terrific cast, notably Laughton, who “binds the entire affair with his bravura villainy,” according to Turner Classic Movies. The legendary New York Times critic Bosley Crowther wrote, “‘Captain Kidd’ is strictly Charles Laughton’s vehicle; the rest of the crew are merely along for the ride.” The film received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Score. Ahoy, Mateys! Get ready for a rollicking adventure. Grab your popcorn and join LRPA after dark – or walk the plank!

 


 

Letter To The Editor

 

Selectmen’s meetings de-escalate to gutter level screaming and swearing matches! Is this really the way we want to be represented? It’s embarrassing to say the least.

 

Members of the board are treating residents with contempt and the level of disrespect shown is appalling. It appears the selectmen have no interest in listening. It would seem they have their own agenda. I once read that a little power is a dangerous thing. This board certainly proves that statement true. Anyone who has sat through a selectmen’s meeting has to agree that it’s time for a change.

 

Moneys raised for the fire dept. addition will go back into the general fund (hopefully), because the selectmen will not allow volunteers to help with the building.

 

There have been complaints of rat infestations at buildings that should be condemned.

 

The swap shop is an ongoing drama! We should be using that building now, but the selectmen will not approve spending $1,500 needed to finish it and yet they’re going to spend $18,000 or more on an electronic gate for the highway dept. and pay for it with money taken from the Transfer Station Expendable Trust, and I repeat, the transfer station has a gate. This new gate is for the highway dept. No one has explained how they’re taking money from the transfer station trust to pay for something for the highway dept. How is this justified?

 

The list is long of things that need improvement, we all except that, but we also need leaders with integrity and common sense. When election time rolls around we have the ability to change this situation. Remember these last couple of years and vote for a better board and a better future.

 

Respect and integrity don’t cost anything and we all deserve them!

 

Til Next Time
