Three classic Our gang/Little Rascals "Talkies" in which she appeared will be screened at the Edison Theater in Niles on Sunday, July 11 a 4 p.m. An hour before the film program, an informative presentation about Dorothy, her life and her career, as well as her longtime participation as an honored member of the Sons of the Desert, will be hosted by the Midnight Patrol Tent. Both the presentation and program are open to the public.

Admission is $5 (suggested donation). For more information, please visit www.nilesfilmmuseum.org. The Sons of the Desert-Midnight Patrol Tent may be contacted by email at SonsDesert@hotmail.com.
