Fade to Black: Creative partners Williams, Goddard give their final film presentation

 Read more... 

Put Hollywood film legend Elmo Williams and entertainer Lon Goddard together in the same room and you can’t get them to stop talking. And what comes out of their mouth is darned funny, too.

Of course that chemistry is what has helped this unlikely pair present a consistently entertaining and educational series of lecture/film screenings that has left their Brookings audiences smiling.

“It’s like a history book come alive,” Goddard said.

His love of cars

 There’s good reason for Dayle Niemie to be excited about the upcoming MDA Benefit Car Show.

That’s because the 61-year-old Brookings resident has suffered from muscular dystrophy for more than 20 years and proceeds of the show benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Niemie’s affliction affects the muscles of his face, shoulders and legs. But it hasn’t prevented him from continuing to work and to enjoy his passion for reconditioning classic cars.



Gun fight set at 'High Noon'

 Brookings’ own Academy Award winner and Hollywood legend Elmo Williams will host the 22nd and final two lecture/screening presentations Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 3 and 4, at the Chetco Playhouse.

The presentation will feature the 1952 classic Western film “High Noon” as well as musical entertainment and a gunfight skit by a group – Shirley Hyatt, Jan Kaplan, Lon Goddard, Rudy Glen, Saun Stone, John Boye, Steve Seney and John Marshall – calling itself The Guns of the Pioneers.

Williams won an Oscar for Best Editing of  a Motion Picture, which will be displayed at the screening, and will reveal the behind-the-scenes story of how the historic film was made and how he came to edit it.



Robert Elayer restores 1929 Model A

 Robert Elayer’s father taught him to be self-sufficient and fix things by himself.

The Brookings resident used that trait to turn a rusted, battered 1929 Model A into a showpiece.

The vintage vehicle, which Elayer began refurbishing in 2008, will be displayed at the MDA Benefit Car Show at Lucky 7 Casino on Saturday, Sept. 3.
