We’re a little slow with this monthly post, but given there appears to be only one World War I-related film on Turner Classic Movies this month–and it’s next week–there didn’t seem to be much of a hurry to do so!
The one film of the month is Mata Hari from 1932. The title role is played by the one and only Greta Garbo, with co-stars Ramon Novarro and Lionel Barrymore. It will air at 5:15 p.m. on Friday afternoon, May 18.
Blair Tarr is the Museum Curator of the Kansas State Historical Society. He oversees the three-dimensional collections of the Society, but has special interests in the Civil War, Wichita-made Valentine diners, and Leavenworth's Abernathy Furniture. In the last few years he has also done a lot of cramming on The Great War.
He is a past president of the Kansas Museums Association and the Civil War Round Tables of both Kansas City and Eastern Kansas. He is currently a board member of the Heritage League of Greater Kansas City.
