1. Major Theodore “Dutch” Van Kirk, navigator and last surviving crew member of the Enola Gay flight that dropped the bomb on Hiroshima, will be signing books from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 19 and May 20 at the Marietta Museum of History’s Aviation Wing.
2. On Sunday at 3 p.m., the Earl Smith Strand Theatre presents The Eagle. Starring Rudolph Valentino the film was released in 1925. The film tells the story of Lt. Valdimir Dubrowsky (Valentino) who flees the Russian Guard after a failed attempt of seduction by the reigning Russian Czar, Louise Dresser.
He then learns that his family’s estate has been stolen from them by an evil nobleman and his father murdered. Valentino then takes on the disguise of The Eagle—a hero to the common people who steals from the rich and gives to the poor.
