Ella Peterson (Judy Holliday) is an operator for an answering service run by her cousin, Sue (Jean Stapleton). Lacking excitement in her personal life, Ella starts becoming involved in the lives of the service's clients, including a struggling playwright, Jeffrey Moss (Dean Martin). As Ella gets in over her head dealing with a bookie posing as a record producer (Eddie Foy Jr.), she tries to hide her real identity. That becomes more difficult when she begins to fall in love with Jeffrey.
We'll provide popcorn and drinks!
Over There, Over Here: Communications During WWI
The MUSE (MUseums Sharing Experiences) group is sponsoring a multi-organization exhibition for 2017, Over There, Over Here: World War I and Life in N.H. Communities is a multi-group collaboration commemorating the 100th anniversary of the United States’ entry into World War I.
The goal is to put the war in social context exploring the themes of the lives of service men and women, Native American code talkers, the development of camouflage and chemical warfare, communication tactics on the battlefield, the war relief effort, changes on the home front, temperance, women’s suffrage, the Influenza epidemic, and the profound changes in music, art, and literature.
The programs cover a broad range of topics that relate to life on the home front and changes to society in the aftermath of the war. Some of the topics include:
Audience members will have the opportunity to gain in depth knowledge about all aspects of life on the home front, immediately before, during and immediately after the war.
This year long event will feature exhibits, programs, lectures, and book readings in Bradford, Hopkinton, Penacook, New London, Warner, and Webster museums, historical societies, and libraries as well as the Aviation Museum in Londonderry.
The Telephone Museum's special exhibit is called Over There, Over Here: Communications During WWI and is now on display until October 2017.
