Friday, we wrap up our coverage of the Sundance Film Festival with a true story of desperation, scams, and goat testicles. Director Penny Lane joins us to talk about John Romulus Brinkley, a man who claimed to have a cure for impotence and many other ailments in 1920s Kansas. He took to newfangled radio to tout his unorthodox treatments, but soon found his nemesis in one Morris Fishbein, editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association. Lane’s film is called NUTS!
Screening time for NUTS!
- Saturday, 1/30 at 3:00 p.m. at the Yarrow Hotel Theatre
