It’s time for that great even we started last year with our annual movie night, featuring a film from our local author, Rex Beach.┬áThe Norwood Area Historical Society will present the all-star adventure classic The World in His Arms, Wednesday, September 17 at 7:30 at the Old Schoolhouse in Norwood.

Whether on land or sea, the adventures never stop in the thrill-packed epic adventure, The World in His Arms. Set in 1850, Gregory Peck stars as the swaggering sea captain Jonathan Clark who poaches seal pelts off the coast of Russian-owned Alaska. However, the real danger begins upon returning to San Francisco where he falls for a countess (Ann Blyth) fleeing from her engagement to a greedy Russian prince (Carl Esmond). When Clark learns of her kidnapping, he sets sail–amid gale force winds and treacherous seas–on a harrowing race to rescue his lady love and beat his longtime rival (Anthony Quinn).
