This Weekend’s LRPA After Dark Feature: 1947’s “The Red
Join Lakes Region Public Access Television at 10:30 p.m. this
Friday and Saturday night (September 1 & 2) for our “LRPA After
Dark” presentation of 1947’s psychological film noir “The Red
House,” starring Edward G. Robinson, Judith Anderson, Allene
Roberts and Lon McCallister.
“The Red House” introduces us to Pete Morgan (Robinson), a
disabled farmer who lives on an isolated farm with his sister
Ellen (Anderson) and Meg (Roberts), a teen that they adopted as
an infant when her parents died. Pete is having trouble keeping
up with the farm, so Meg’s classmate Nath Storm (McCallister)
comes as a hired hand to help with the chores. Meg is delighted,
as she has a crush on Nath, even though he has a girlfriend. The
Morgan farm is surrounded by Ox Head Woods. Pete forbids the
teens to enter the woods, and warns them of an abandoned
building there known as The Red House. One night, Nath takes a
shortcut through the woods, where someone knocks him out cold.
As more strange events unfold, Nath and Meg become suspicious of
Pete’s obsession with the woods and the Red House. They begin to
ask questions and explore on their own, which fills Pete with
unspeakable rage – and slowly drives him mad. Meg and Nath
feel that their lives may be in danger; what might have happened
at The Red House to turn Pete into such a jealous, unstable
“The Red House” has all the makings of a film noir classic:
great stars (Robinson and Anderson), along with fantastic
performances from the supporting cast (including a young Rory
Calhoun and a gorgeous Julie London); a cool plot with
psychological surprises; creepy music that sets the film’s tone,
etc. So why hasn’t it become a cinematic classic? Some reviewers
think it’s because the pacing of the plot is a bit slow, while
others feel that it’s because the subject matter was, for its
time, distasteful. “The Red House” was well received by critics,
who thought that Robinson’s performance was very strong. This
truly is a film that is not shown very often, so grab your
popcorn and meet us after dark for this rare cinematic gem.

David Coursin Announces Campaign For State
Submitted By David Coursin
I’m campaigning to represent Northwood, Rockingham County,
District #1. I moved to Northwood in 2009, after living in
Concord with my wife and two children since 1985. I’ve
been a physician for over forty years, as a family doctor caring
for people in the coal fields of southeastern Kentucky, then as
a psychiatrist working with children and adults in the
challenging neighborhoods of inner city Philadelphia.
helped develop the psychiatric services at Concord Hospital,
worked in private practice and with the local mental health
center, and joined the faculty of Dartmouth Medical School in
2001 to work and teach at New Hampshire Hospital and the Secure
Psychiatric Unit at the State Prison. I now serve as a
Governor’s appointee to the Board of Medicine, Medical Review
Golden Rule guides me in life as it would guide my work in the
State House. I want our government to live up to that principle,
treating everyone with respect and equal opportunity.
Self-reliance is deeply important, but all of us are helped
along the way. Nobody is a “self-made” anything. To reach
our goals in life, we rely on the education, infrastructure, and
public services government provides. We are at our best
individually and as communities when we work together.
a heartbeat, anyone of us could face something we never
imagined. In those extra-ordinary times, we need help from our
trusted sources. We may need help they can’t provide. All
of us must share the cost for that help, so it is there in case
anyone of us needs it. Hopefully that never happens, but each of
us serves the rest by contributing to the cost of those
resources. Good government is one of the strongest tools we have
for putting our service into action.
Voting for legislators who acknowledge this above partisanship
is critical for the health of our communities, our state and our
country. I am one of those legislators. Visit me frequently on
Face Book @DrDavidCoursin for campaign information and my
thoughts on specific issues. Email me at
