Producer Brinton Bryan of Greenbelt Films will appear at the Downtown Rotary Club of Fort Worth. If you are interested but not a member, you can probably find a member willing to invite you as a guest.

You might want to be prompt in doing that because Bryan is likely to draw a crowd.

Rotary meets on the 12th floor of the Fort Worth Club. The buffet opens at 11:30 a.m. and the program begins at noon sharp and last an hour.

Lunch as the guest of a Rotarian is $31. Learning about the history of Fort Worth is priceless.

The film, being shot now in Fort Worth, is based on the true story of orphans – called the Mighty Mites – who lived at and played football in the 1930s and 1940s at the Masonic Home and School of Texas in Fort Worth.

The film is based on the book by sportswriter Jim Dent.

Luke Wilson stars as Masonic Home head football coach Rusty Russell. Also appearing in the film are actors Robert Duvall and Martin Sheen.
