OLLI at UAH Bonus - Bogart, Nixon and Sarah Palin

Friday, November 4, 2022 The event started -26 days ago

11:00 AM

Wilson Hall


Offered through Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at UAH

A real-life hostage-taking event results in a best-selling novel, a Broadway play, a movie starring Humphrey Bogart, and a featured article in Life Magazine. The family that was taken hostage sues the magazine leading to an historical Supreme Court case in which Richard Nixon argued on behalf of the family. Just recently, Sarah Palin made the news as a result of her suing the New York Times challenging the same free press issues that were argued in the hostage family's case. This "multi-media" program will explore the unexpected twists and turns in this true story and include clips from the movie, photos from the Life Magazine article, and audio clips from Richard Nixon's argument before the Supreme Court. In addition, we'll take a look at the very recent case Sarah Palin filed against the New York Times.

Join your OLLI friends for light refreshments served before and after the event.

Presented by: Tom Borcher, retired trial lawyer and current presenter on history, politics, and the court
