“LOST RIVER” – Movie Premiere Available for Fundraising

This is a little off from our regular Readerboard topics, but we received this note and the subject of this film, Anna Ella Carroll, is just fascinating. So, for your consideration, we post this note from FRANK BITTNER of the Friends of Anna Ella Carroll.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Friends,

Our Maryland group recently hosted a film premiere of “Lost River”, a movie based on the true life story of Anna Ella Carroll – President Lincolns (Female) uncredited Cabinet adviser , who after Lincoln’s death her male counterparts almost erased from history.

Due to the wide variety of issues and causes which are addressed in this movie, also from the way it can be presented, it draws the vast attention of multiple groups of perspective viewers.( i.e.) Subjects; Lincoln, The Civil War, Patriotism, Women’s Issues, Dirty, Politics, and simply anyone yearning to see an underdog get Her just reward.

Due to our success with the film, and the ways we chose to present it, the films owner has designated our group (The Friends of Anna Ella Carroll) as his agent for making the film available to other organizations for use as fundraisers, and for making others aware of the importance of Anna Ella Carroll’s achievements.

It has occurred to us that Historical and Community Organizations, especially those operating within historic buildings that once served as theaters, may want to consider using the film as a fundraiser like we did, and may wish to follow the Footprint we created to help make it a success.

Frank Bittner – Director,
Friends of Anna Ella Carroll

    I saw the movie last night, presented by the Calvert County Historical Society. I am puzzled as to which Anna Ella Carroll biography the screen
    writer used to bring his historical facts about Ann to the screen. I assume that the whole project was created to be a documentary of true facts, not just an entertaining event – please correct me if I am wrong. The movie tried to make me believe that one of the reasons Ann did not receive proper recognition was jealousy by Mary Lincoln for Ann. Can you back this up with factual literature? And – if this film is to be the LIFE of Anna Ella Carroll – why does it end in the 1870′s – Ann lived until 1894. I would like to understand!! Please help!!
