- Dead Filmmakers Society: Bengazi/ A Yank in Libya
- Time: 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
- Location: Sandburg Theatre
- Description: "Bengazi" (1955)/ "A Yank in Libya" (1942) - What this desert action double bill lacks in quality (which is a lot), it makes up for in topicality. In the first scene, Richard Conte, Victor McLaglen and Mala Powers literally have to hold down the fort, while searching for buried treasure. The second feature at least gives you a rare chance to see a performance by Albert Brooks' father (acting under the name Parkyarkarkus), who helps an American reporter thwart a Nazi plot to supply weapons to the Arabs.
