Of Topic: The movie Pearl
Did anyone see the movie Pearl on OETA last Saturday night? We watched it and it was great. It's about a Marlow girl in the late twenties and early thirties who met Wiley Post and started flying at 12. We met her once and she was really interesting. Her dad was blind but ran a successful business in Marlow. She drove him everywhere and once she started flying, she flew him and other businessmen. And she was a barnstormer. She retired at 18.
The movie is being shown again at 11:30 on Friday night. There is the movie and a short documentary about her life. It's worth a look.
