Vermont vs . Hollywood : 100 Years of Vermont in Film
The Poultney Historical Society will host a lecture titled “ Vermont vs . Hollywood : 100 Years of Vermont in Film ” on September 23 at 12pm at the Poultney Public Library . Vermont has been a featured location in Hollywood movies for nearly a century . It has represented many different ideals during that time , and its portrayal reflects both Vermont ’ s own history as well as American history . Examining those films provides interesting and fun insights into the hold Vermont has had on imagination in the media age . Amanda Gustin of the Vermont Historical Society will provide background and share video clips ranging chronologically from 1919 ’ s Way Down East to 2005 ’ s Thank You for Smoking . Gustin has been the Public Programs Coordinator at the Vermont Historical Society since 2012 . Prior to that , she was a researcher at the Mary Baker Eddy Library in Boston . Her favorite moments are when she connects with an audience while explaining or demonstrating history . She has studied military , religious , and women ’ s history in the medieval period and nineteenth-century America . The Poultney Public Library is located at 205 Main Street . poultneyhistoricalsociety . org .
