Library at BYU to show 'Flicka'

"My Friend Flicka," the beloved 1943 family film, will be shown Thursday, March 27, in the Harold B. Lee Library auditorium on the Brigham Young University campus.

The film starts at 7 p.m. Admission is free but is limited to those 8 and older. No food or drink is permitted in the auditorium.

Shot in several Utah locations, including Kanab and Zion National Park, "My Friend Flicka" stars the late Roddy McDowall as Ken McLaughlin, a 10-year-old who learns responsibility when he is put in charge of a filly colt.

Preston Foster and Rita Johnson co-star in the film, which went on to spawn two sequels (including 1945's "Thunderhead: Son of Flicka," with the same principal cast).

This screening is part of the ongoing Special Collections Motion Picture Archives Film Series, sponsored by the Harold B. Lee Library's Special Collections. For more information about the film series call 422-6371 or log on to
