The Historical Association of Lewiston hosts a special screening of "Niagara" at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23, at the Red Brick Municipal Building, 145 N. Fourth St.

For two weeks in 1952, Marilyn Monroe spent time shooting "Niagara" in and around Niagara Falls. George Bailey, a local resident and expert on the filming, will be on hand to discuss Monroe's time in the area. After his brief talk, the movie, also starring Joseph Cotton and Jean Peters, will be shown.

The 1953 thriller-film noir was one of Twentieth Century Fox's biggest hits of the year. Unlike other film noir of the time, "Niagara" was filmed in Technicolor and captures Niagara Falls in its full glory. Monroe had first billing for "Niagara," and was cast as the femme fatale plotting to kill her husband.

The Olde Time Barber Shop in Lewiston sponsors this free, educational and entertaining evening. The event is open to the public. Refreshments will be available.
