You are invited to a very special screening of "The Lucky Holdup" starring Titanic Survivor Dorothy Gibson. The 8-minute fragment discovered in 2001 is all that survives of the film made in March 1912, a month before Dorothy and her mother sailed aboard the Titanic. Join the group to take part in the event and watch the film...

The Lucky Holdup is on YouTube. It's in poor shape and gives little idea of Dorothy Gibson's ability. None of her other movies survive.
