Film Screening: 4 p.m.   Program 6:30 p.m.

The John Ford-John Wayne film, The Searchers, is one of the great Hollywood Westerns. But the movie was only a late entry in a real-life saga stretching back to 1830s Texas.

In a discussion of his book, Glenn Frankel traces the story from the 1836 kidnapping of a white girl by Comanche Indians to her “rescue” almost 25 years later, her subsequent unhappy life, and the various retellings of the epic tale in fiction, theater, and opera leading up to Alan LeMay’s 1954 novel and Ford’s 1956 film.

The talk by Frankel, a Pulitzer Prize-winning former reporter, editor and foreign bureau chief for The Washington Post who now heads the University of Texas’ School of Journalism, is preceded by a screening of The Searchers at 4 p.m.

Mark the centennial of Union Station and be part of the studio audience when KCPT’s Meet the Past with Crosby Kemper III returns for a conversation with a young, brash, and bold Ernest Hemingway, portrayed by local actor Rusty Sneary, at Union Station’s Regnier Extreme Screen Theatre.

Hemingway credited The Kansas City Star for shaping his inimitable writing style even though he spent a scant six months with the newspaper as a cub reporter. A 1918 Kansas City Red Cross recruitment effort steered Hemingway to Italy as an ambulance driver. His initial impressions of the Italian Front served as inspiration for Death in the Afternoon. A serious injury by mortar fire sent Hemingway to a Red Cross hospital for six months where he fell in love with nurse Agnes von Kurowsky. He immortalized his injury, romance, and other wartime experiences in A Farewell to Arms.
