Pike County Historical Society to show ZG's "The Vanishing American"
On Friday, Oct. 18, at 7 p.m., The Pike County Historical Society will host a showing of, and commentary on, “The Vanishing American” (Paramount 1925). The film was adapted from the Zane Grey novel of the same title. Located at 608 Broad Street in Historic Milford, the film will be shown in the Foundation Room of The Columns Museum.
Film critic Robert Lentz (member of ZGWS) will be on hand to discuss and introduce the film. Admission is free.
“It’s a real pleasure to be able to show a film of this quality,” said Lori Strelecki, Director of The Columns Museum. “Especially in conjunction with the Black Bear Film Festival throughout the weekend. We certainly hope to shed some light on Zane Grey’s perspective of ‘The Vanishing American.’”
History is a succession of conquests of stronger races over weaker ones. This story is played out on the stage of Monument Valley, long ago, tribes of Indians defeated the ancient cliff dwellers; then came the Europeans to conquer the Indians.
