From ‘Cuckoo’s Nest’ to ‘Animal House’ to ‘Stand by Me,’ Katherine Wilson’s memoir reflects on 50 years in the movie biz

Saturday, November 9, 3 PM: Trine Day author Katherine Wilson reads from and talks about her book “Echoes from the Set, 1967-2017: Fifty Years of Filming on Location (Hollywood and Oregon’s Cinematic Literary Voices). Wilson attended the University of Oregon as an English major and soon became an actress for the burgeoning 16mm Poetic Cinema filmmakers. Concurrently, she was discovered by director Mark Rydell for his film Cinderella Liberty. Mark brought her to Hollywood and encouraged her to attend film school at the University of California. However, she wanted to continue as a filmmaker in Oregon, and has worked ever since to create a film industry in the Northwest tradition. Her first major film as location scout and casting director was for the notorious Animal House. She provided these services for the next 40 years on many films, including Stand by Me, before working on screenplays and mentoring young filmmakers. There were hundreds of locals who played bit roles in these movies. Come join the fun.

Joining Katherine with the read will be Izzy Whetsine. Light refreshment. Signing to follow.                                            https://www.registerguard.com/entertainmentlife/20190513/from-cuckoos-nest-to-animal-house-to-stand-by-me-katherine-wilsons-memoir-reflects-on-50-years-in-movie-biz   http://trineday.com
