The Way Library’s Reel Talk classic film series opens on Wednesday, October 27, at 10:00 a.m., with a screening of The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T.
Sounds like a horror picture, but it isn’t. The imagination of a nine-year-old boy comes vividly to life in this fun-filled fantasy story from Dr. Seuss.
Largely ignored when released in 1953, the film concerns nightmares a young boy, played by Tommy Rettig of Lassie fame, has about a cruel piano teacher. The film is also chock-full of surreal landscapes and tongue-twisting rhymes, as only Dr. Seuss can concoct. If you liked his books, you’ll like this seldom-seen movie.
Sig Humanski, area film buff will lead a discussion of the film afterwards and take questions from the audience.
Admission is free and no reservations are required. For more information, call 419-874-3135.
