Discussion and Reception with B Hanson, Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Ron Rudaitis, and other guests
Wednesday, Jan. 11 at 7pm


From pre-Civil Rights Alabama to Rodgers and Hammerstein-era Broadway to presentday
suburban Long Island, this whimsical and heartwarming documentary tells the
story of the life, career and indomitable spirit of a truly inspiring American voice. Beverly
Fite (known to Huntington residents as B Hanson) began her Broadway career as a dancer
in the original Broadway production of Oklahoma! and performed the role of Linda
English in the original 1950 Columbia album Pal Joey, singing the Rodgers and Hart classic
"I Could Write A Book." B's father was a country lawyer from a small town in Alabama and
her mother was a member of Birmingham society. Hard times came early in her life when her
father was disbarred. Join B on an emotional and revelatory journey back to Alabama in search of the real story of her father's
disbarment and ultimately the meaning of her own life's journey. Directed by Emmy Award-winning Long Island filmmaker Ron
Rudaitis, who comments "B's life is such a rich tapestry. It's a story that touches on Civil Rights and social justice, as well as women's
rights and it's one that will leave audiences moved and ultimately cheering for B, who is truly a remarkable person and an exceptional
artist. The beauty of her voice is eclipsed perhaps only by the beauty of her spirit." USA, 2011, 90 mins., color  Director: Ron Rudaitis
