Pearl - the Movie
Pearl-the Movie - The Warren Theatre in Moore had the red carpet out Tuesday as cast and crew from the Oklahoma-made movie "Pearl" attended the Oklahoma premiere.
"Pearl" chronicles the teenage years of Pearl Carter Scott, who at 13 was the youngest licensed pilot in the U.S. in 1928.
"My desire is that this film will encourage others to hold fast to the worthy ideals of family, love and dreams of little girls who believe they can fly," director King Hollis said in a release about the film.
"Pearl" was produced by the Chickasaw Nation, who wanted to share the tale of one of their ancestors.
Tom Huston Orr, director of the School of Drama at the University of Oklahoma, played the role of Wiley Post in the film. Being the third Oklahoma-made movie Orr has had a role in, he remarked that the making of the film was different because many of the cast and crew were united by a common Oklahoma spirit.
