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
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.
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?
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
