This Weekend’s LRPA After Dark Feature: 1950’s “D.O.A.”


Join Lakes Region Public Access Television at 10:30 PM this Friday and Saturday night (May 13 & 14) for our “LRPA After Dark” presentation of 1950’s’ dark and gritty film noir drama “D.O.A.,” starring Edmond O’Brien and Pamela Britton.


Told in flashback, “D.O.A.” introduces us to Frank Bigelow (O’Brien), a businessman visiting San Francisco for a carefree week of bachelor fun before he weds his fiancée Paula Gibson (Britton). O’Brien meets up with a group of salesmen and winds up in a wild, waterfront jazz bar, only to have a mysterious stranger switch his drink. O’Brien wakes up in the morning with the hangover of his life. Feeling worse and worse, he visits a hospital, where doctors give him tragic news: he has been poisoned with “luminous toxin” – and there’s no antidote. The poisoning must have been deliberate, but who could have done it, and why? With nothing to lose, Bigelow spends his next frantic days attempting to solve the mystery of this heinous act.


“D.O.A.” was based on the1931 German film “Der Mann, Der Seinen Morder Sucht,” a black comedy about a man who arranges for his own death but then regrets his hasty decision. When it was adapted for American audiences, director Rudolph Mate created a much darker and more chaotic world, filled with dive bars and dangerous people. “D.O.A.” features the talented (and underappreciated) Edmond O’Brien in one of his most memorable roles. The film was remade in 1988 starring Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan. Critics and audiences heartily agreed: the original “D.O.A.” was definitely the best.  Jeff Stafford of Turner Classic Movies described it as “one of the most imaginative and frenetic entries in the film noir genre … “ and pointed out that it “ … works as both a detective thriller and as a bleak, nihilistic melodrama.” Judge “D.O.A.” for yourself! Grab your popcorn and join LRPA after dark for this unflinching thriller from the past.


You can’t find television like this it anywhere but LRPA TV, MetroCast Channel 25. Not a subscriber? Then log onto Live Stream through our website ( where you can catch all the fun.

Rebecca Rule is a humorist/writer who specializes in funny stories about New Hampshire.  Rebecca Rule gathers and tells stories and she’ll be telling some of her funniest ones for Humor and Harmony. Her latest book (and first picture book for children) is The Iciest, Diciest, Scariest Sled Ride Ever, illustrated by Jennifer Thermes.  Other books include:  Moved and Seconded: NH Town Meeting and Could Have Been Worse: True Stories, Embellishments, and Outright Lies.  She hosts Our Hometown, on NHPTV.


Cordwood is a bluegrass and folk quartet made up of instrumental, vocal, and recording artists from Northwood, Strafford, and Deerfield.  This is not your local neighborhood hobby band.  They are a fine group of seasoned New England musicians.  Each can hold his or her own at field picking or a back stage jam, and yet, as a band, they present a highly polished on-stage performance.  All four members of Cordwood are storytellers and songwriters, creating original material for instrumentalists who can sing and harmonize, sometimes taking the lead vocal, other times hanging back and lending two, three, or even four part harmonies to a song.  Cordwood provides a unique sound to both originals and the covers they perform.  Their tunes remain heartfelt and down-home.  The band’s material is a mixture of traditional bluegrass, folk, and swing.  Cordwood is Wini Young on banjo and guitar, Walt Kutylowski on bass, Al Pratt on guitar, and Bob Young on mandolin, names you may remember from Big Chicken, The Deerfield Coffeehouse Band, and Fat Hands.


Cupcake War

The Chesley Memorial Library will hold its second annual Cupcake War on May 25 and 26! Bring your own (undecorated) cupcake to the library on Wednesday, May 25, between 10:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.  Decorations will be available here and cupcakes will be on display once completed.  Come back on Thursday, May 26, during library hours (10:00am-7:00pm) to vote for your favorite cupcake.  The smell of cupcakes enticed everyone visiting the library last year and we are sure the same will be true this year!  All ages welcome; registration not required.
